Share It Sunday – Season Of Green & Gold with Layers Of Beauty

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 1:00am Monday morning, but it is a great start to the working week when we wake up!) There is no theme for this hop, it is for each of us to choose what project we want to share.

I have been playing with some of the new Online Exclusive products that will be released on Wednesday (3rd July). During my Facebook live this morning I made a card that uses some of the new Online Exclusive DSP and combined it with an annual catalogue stamp set – Layers Of Beauty and the Layers Of Beauty Decorative Masks

This card uses up some of your DSP stash (or you can use new DSP like I did. It opens up like this:

I had a bit of an oopsie moment when I realised that instead of Petal Pink I had grabbed my Crumb Cake ink pad. However, the show must go on and I went with it using the Crumb Cake ink. This was a rather fortunate mistake as I loved the roses with the Crumb Cake ink. You can watch the replay of the live below

Hop around and see what everyone else is sharing with us today.

Chain Card Swap – Simply Zinnias

At the beginning of October, I started a fun journey with 10 other Australian demonstrators. We called it a “Chain Card Swap”. It is a card version of what is called “Chinese Whispers” in Australia (we called it “Broken Telephone” in South Africa). Each of us designed a card (round 1) and sent it off to one of the other participants. That person CASE-d (Copy And Share Everything) the card and send their version on to the next person. The card made its way around until finally a version came home to the maker. This is the tenth card in a series of blog hops for each of the card designs to share the fun and amazement at the evolution.

The next card that we are sharing was designed by Sharni Green. My suggestion is that you start at her blog post and then click through the link list which is in round order. My CASE of her card was at round 10. This is another one where if you look at the first card and then the last card, you wouldn’t think that they are related.

I used the gorgeous Flowering Zinnias suite for this card.

There is still time for you to join the Flowering Zinnia Stamp Camp (although you won’t have your kit before the event). For details about how to join click here. These are 3 of the cards we will be making (there are 9 in total).

It was mind blowing to see the difference between the first card and the one that returned home. Hop though the blog posts to see how we all interpreted the card differently and how it evolved from start to finish.

Flowering Zinnias Stamp Camp

Have you seen the new Flowering Zinnias Online Exclusive suite? It has bold bright colours and beautiful flowers. Would you like to make some gorgeous cards with these products? If you are saying yes, join us for a virtual Stamp Camp!
If you are in Australia, you can order the class kit (details below) and join us to assemble the cards. If you are overseas, you can purchase the tutorial bundle, prepare your kit and craft along.

This is a collaboration with myself and the amazing Maheswari Rajaguru and Julia Quinn.
This Stamp camp will be on the 20th April. The event will take place in an exclusive Facebook group.
We will each design three projects – two standard cards and a fun fold. In the event each of us will take you through making our projects. You can watch live or at any time that suits you. You will have lifetime access to the group, so you can go back and re-watch the presentations if you need a refresher on assembling the cards. These are the 3 cards that I have designed:

We have a number of options for you to choose from to join the Stamp Camp:
1. Purchase the bundle, and you will get the tutorial bundle free. (Click here to order your bundle. Please use the host code on the side of my blog at the check out). If you choose this option and you would like the kit to make the cards you can purchase that directly from me for the discounted price of $40.00 (including postage). The kit comprises all the card stock to complete the eight projects in the tutorial plus a quarter pack of the Flowering Zinnias DSP, a pack of the Adhesive-Backed Shiny Sequins and a share of Linen Thread.
Please note, the bundle will be purchased directly from Stampin’ Up! but the add on kit needs to be bought through me.


2. If you already have the bundle, you can purchase the class kit (all the card stock to complete the eight projects in the tutorial plus a quarter pack of the Flowering Zinnias DSP, a pack of the Adhesive-Backed Shiny Sequins and a share of Linen Thread) for $80.00
The above options are only available to Australian residents.
3. If you live overseas we would love to have you join us. You can purchase the tutorial for $22.00. The tutorial will be emailed to you and you will receive an invitation to join the Facebook group.

Looking forward to having you join the fun.

Let’s Craft Together – Simply Zinnia

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Let’s Craft Together blog hop. We are a group of
multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting. Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a colour challenge that was set by Monique Fielder.

These are not my usual go to colours, and although the colours in my card aren’t as deep as the colours in the picture, I am very happy with the final result (and might even try using this combination again!)

I have used the bundle, embossing folder and embellishments from a new online exclusive offering that will be available from tomorrow. If you like the look of this, I will be participating in a Stamp Camp that uses these products. You can find all the details about the Stamp Camp here.

It always amazes me how we all have the same starting point, and come up with completely different projects. Hop around and see how everyone else has interpreted this challenge.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Simply Zinnia

Welcome to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational challenge. This month we have a picture challenge. You can either use the color challenge to create a project unrelated to the image – There will generally be 5-6 colors for the color challenge you may use some or all colors plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. If you are feeling super creative, use BOTH! This is the inspiration for this month:

My card uses the new Simply Zinnia bundle which is the new Online Exclusive available from the 5th March. I couldn’t get the Orchid Oasis into my card, it was looking too dark against the pastel colours, but I managed to use all the others.

You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia. Please see the list below & hop through all of the other participants to see how they were inspired.

On Line Exclusive Blog Hop – Meandering Meadows

Today I am participating in a fun blog hop which is showcasing the new Online Exclusive products. Every time I start making a card I find myself reaching for the Meandering Meadows DSP. This paper makes it super easy to create beautiful cards with very little effort.

Meandering Meadows Simple Fun Fold

I am loving the new online exclusive Meandering Meadows DSP which is available from today. The designs are beautiful, and you don’t need much more than the paper to create a gorgeous card! This one is a simple fun fold.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Translucent Florals

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! This month’s theme is “September – December 2023 Mini Catalogue”. There are so many gorgeous options to choose from in this catalogue. Together with Shirley, Terri and six other demonstrators, I am participating in a World Card Making Day Online Retreat (more about this further on) and I am demonstrating my cards using the Translucent Florals bundle, so I decided to use that same bundle for today’s hop.

The flowers on this card are made using dies from the Translucent Florals dies. There are two sizes of flowers in the die set that you can use to make the flowers that don’t have coordinating stamps.
I got really lucky as the Delightful Floral DSP has just been released in the online store and this matches the bundle perfectly!

Be sure to hop all the way around and see which mini catalogue products the others have chosen. Please leave comments for us – we love getting feedback about our work!
