Inlaid Floating Technique for Valentine’s Day

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. Our theme for this month is “Red Hot Love”! The guidelines are to make a monochromatic card using different shades of red.

I decided to try a new technique – Inlaid floating. I used the Always In My Heart stamp set and the Stitched Be Mine dies. These two are not officially coordinated, but they work really well together. I used Cherry Cobbler Poppy Parade and Real Red card stock, along with the Snail Mail DSP and the Resin Hearts from the Snail Mail suite

The video below will show you how I made this card

Thanks for hopping by today. Hope everyone has a happy (romantic) Valentine’s day and eats lots of chocolate! Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created

Dahlia fold using Dandy Garden

Thank you for visiting today as I join other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie’s International Blog Highlights to share cards that show appreciation.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.

I recently participated in a Black Friday event with demonstrators from the UK, USA and Canada. This fold was one of my projects for the event, and everyone that participated was wowed! The secret to success is to use DSP that has a small pattern and has a good contrast between the sides of the paper. For this card I have used the Dandy Garden DSP and the Dragonfly Garden stamp set which will be available on the 3rd of January in the new mini catalogue.

The video is from the Black Friday event, so it does use different DSP. If you would like more details about what else was available at this class, please feel free to contact me

Keep spreading happiness by sending cards to anyone who touches your life. A handmade card in the post box brings joy to the worst day

Colour Inkspiration #83

I am a little bit late in posting this, as the colour challenge actually finished a week ago, but better late than never! I enjoy taking part in colour challenges. They sometimes push me out of my comfort zone and force me to work with colours that aren’t my regular go-to colours, and other times inspire me to use combinations that I hadn’t considered.

This challenge forced me to do both. Green isn’t one of my favourite colours, but this combination really works well together. I was very excited to be placed in the top 5 of the entries for this challenge.

Below is my Facebook Live video showing how I made these cards.

Herringbone Technique video

I said that I would have this video ready for you on Thursday, but I have had some technical issues (mainly trying to edit and upload to YouTube). I apologise for this being late, but here is my (first ever) video showing this fun technique!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Herringbone Technique

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! Our theme this month is “Designer Series Paper Spotlight”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. Wasn’t her project fantastic?

I was recently shown how to do the herring bone technique, and what better way is there to show off the beautiful DSP in the new catalogue? You need very few supplies for this technique – a piece to place your DSP onto, some adhesives sheets and DSP strips cut to 1cm. You can use whatever sentiment appeals to you. I wanted to keep it small so that I didn’t cover too much of the design. The sentiment is from the Lovely You stamp set and cut out with a stitched oval.

You can choose a specific colour scheme, or use each V in a different colour. I have a video showing how I made these cards, so pop back tomorrow to get the tutorial.

Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop June 2020 – Hand-Drawn Blooms

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support. You may be starting here or may have come from another blog – either way, you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

I used the new Hand- Drawn Blooms stamp set. Although it looks like it needs a lot of colouring (not my favourite technique), when I looked at the floral image, it was shouting heat embossing at me.

After embossing the image in the alternate corners, the other corners were looking a bit bare, so I used some tone on tone stamping to fill in the gaps

Thank you so much for coming by today! We have an amazing line up of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world, and we know you are going to love all the amazing projects that you are going to see today. Don’t miss one blog link.
