Ink It! Stamp It! - Holiday Catalogue

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome back everyone 😊
And welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. 
This month we will be sharing projects inspired by our projects created using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. 
The full line up below will guide through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite item is from the new catalogue.

I chose to use 2 stamp set called 'Snowflake Sentiments' and the 'Merry Little Labels' for my card today along with a couple of techniques to create my card with. 
One technique is water colour washing, this was combined with another technique, called resist emboss. I also used a masking technique to stamp the silhouette images at the bottom of the card.

Seasons Greetings


#KOCreationscards #Snowflakescenes #DIY #Cardmaking #Rubberstamping #Resistemboss #Watercolour #Watercolor #Stampinup

Basic Instructions.
To start my scene, I taped up around the edge piece of a piece of water colour paper. 
I then wet the paper with a large brush. 
I applied my colours, with the card stock wet the colour travels and blends without leaving any harsh lines.
I heat dried the first  layer of colours.
 Once done, I embossed the snowflakes in white embossing powder and repeated the water colour wash over the top to strengthen the colours, making them more vibrant. 
I left this to dry naturally.

When this was completely dry, I stamped my images by repeat stamping a stamp fro the 'Merry Little Labels' set. 
I then used my black Stampin' Write marker to fill in some areas with larger silhouettes of pine tree shapes.

I used my versamark re-fill and a small brush to apply versamark to the tree line and some ground area, dusting this with white embossing powder and then heating until smooth.
This gave the effect of snow coverage on the trees.
 When the scene was complete I trimmed it down to size and backed it onto basic black card stock.

The sentiment has also been embossed using the white embossing powder then trimmed to a banner and glued in place.

Well, what do you think?

Me I really like the effect, and that sweet little deer silhouette just makes it 😊


Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month to see our hop all about techniques

Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Something Different


Welcome back everyone 😊
And also welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. 
This month's theme is Something Different, for me that would be someting other than a card lol.

 You are currently visiting with me Kim Oliver from Australia and I have a full list of particpants closer to the end of my blog.
I do hope you enjoy my project that was created for your viewing pleasure today.

Without further ado, here is my Something Different 😊

I created my items below using brand new products from the current Holiday Catalogue.

Swirly Snowflakes Christmas Tags

#KOCreationscards #Christmastime #Christmastags #Gifttags #DIY #Snowflakes #Swirlysnowflakes #Stampinup #Diecutting 

I used Real Red and Very Vanilla card stock to create these tags with along with the mini tinsel trim combo pack. The tinsel is available in Silver and Real Red as you can see above anda adds that extra bit of sparkle that we all love at Christmas time.

Very Vanilla Tags

#KOCreationscards #Christmastime #Christmastags #Gifttags #DIY #Snowflakes #Swirlysnowflakes #Stampinup #Diecutting

To create the snowflakes I used the NEW Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies and die cut the flakes from the tags and swapped the coulors around. So, the red cut outs were added to the vanilla tags while the tags with the cutouts were backed with the contrasting colour.

Real Red Tags

#KOCreationscards #Christmastime #Christmastags #Gifttags #DIY #Snowflakes #Swirlysnowflakes #Stampinup #Diecutting


I seriously love this bundle! The edgelit in this die set is to die for (hahahaha) and already I have some (hopefully) gorgeous ideas going around in my crafty little brain 😆

These tags are super simple to create and the matching stamp set for these dies that is available as a bundle from the Holiday catalogue has the 'To: and From:' stamps for the back of my tags too! 
What more could you ask for!


I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you and brightened your day.

#CI17 - Creep it Real!


Welcome back everyone 😊

I had a spare moment today, so I thought I would play with a colour challenge from 
Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo. 
I entered this card into the #CI17 colour challenge 😁
Aren't they just fun colours!

I decide to pair these colours with the Creep it Real stamp set available from the Holiday Catalogue
(last page)


Creep It Real

#KOCreationscards #Halloween #Creepitreal #DIY #Cardmaking #Stampinup #Monsters #Kidscards


Basic Instructions

My background was created by repeat stamping the sentiment 'Creep It Real' in Lemon Lime Twist.
I layered this upon Flirty Flamingo and basic black card stock. 
I then addded these layers to my card base of Lemon Lime Twist.
I stamped the teeth image in memento tuxedo black then coloured with aqua painters and ink pads.
I made sure that the mouth was deliberatley grimy looking and added black blemishes to the lips too, all in the name of halloween lol.
When all done I applied versamark with a brush to the lips and teeth only and added clear embossing powder, heating until the powder had melted and was smooth. This gave the illusion of depth. 
I also went around the letters with my black stampin write marker to add depth to the lettering.
I then fussy cut this out..
The lollies were stamped and then fussy cut, just to add a little more interest to the frontof my card.


Inside View

#KOCreationscards #Halloween #Creepitreal #DIY #Cardmaking #Stampinup #Monsters #Kidscards


For the inside I stamped the sentiment and the lollies in the centre of the card.
Using my Stampin' Write markers I rubbed the colours around the edge of the stamp, huffed and a placed this over the sentiment.
Using a pencil I coloured lightly the tongue.
I decided that this mouth and teeth set would be free of grime and blemishes, as if the teeth and mouth had been cleaned hahaha.

Kylies International Highlights - Sympathy

Image may contain: text

Welcome back everyone 😊

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights!
This is where we all create a project using a selected theme and you all get to vote for who you like the best!
The theme for this months highlights is Sympathy.

No-one likes to create these styles of cards, but they are unfortunately a necessary part of life.
And we all want the people in out lives to know that we are there for them in there time of need, that's why these types of cards are so important.
For me an elegant and not overly wordy style is my go to for Sympathy cards.


If you like my card (pictured below) you can vote for it here, my card number is 15 in the gallery.




Here is my card created for the highlights.

You've Got This
Angled View

#KOCreationscards #Sympathy #Elegant #DIY #Peonyrose #Cardmaking #Rubberstamping #Stampinup

The two stamp sets I used for this card are 'You've Got This' and 'Rose Wonder' 
for the inside sentiment which is the last picture below.

I think this clean and simple design is so very elegant and speaks volumes while not having any sentiment placed on the front at all.


Full Frontal View

#KOCreationscards #Sympathy #Elegant #DIY #Peonyrose #Cardmaking #Rubberstamping #Stampinup


For my card base and front I used thick Whisper White card stock. 
A piece of Gold Foil sheet has been added for an elegant edge around the card front.
The Peony Rose has been embossed in gold to match the foil layer.

I did think about adding some gold splatter in the back ground, but in the end
I decide that the flower was all this card really needed.

Inside View

#KOCreationscards #Sympathy #Elegant #DIY #Peonyrose #Cardmaking #Rubberstamping #Stampinup


Upon opening the card you can see that the words stamped inside say it all 💓

Adding the gold foil layer really helps in keeping that elegant feel from the front through to the inside.

I hope you have enjoyed my simple card today.

Please vote for my card, it is number 15 in the gallery 😊

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Painted Harvest bundle


Welcome to  the Stamping Sunday blog hop, on the first Sunday of every month we all get together and showcase an item from the current catalogues. It could be a stamp set, a bundle or a whole suite

Today we are using the versatile Painted Harvest suite. 
It is my faveourite set of the new catalogue atm!
Do you have a faveourite yet?

This set is currently available in a bundle. I love bundles, they are just so awesome, because you get to save 10% percent of the purchase price when you buy these items as a bundle!
Who doesn't love to save!

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver, I will have a full list of participants closer to the end of this post  for you to keep finding inspiartion from.

here is my project for today.

THANK YOU GIFT SET




I have chosen to create a Thank you gift set, comprising of a card and note pad.
I have never made or even thought of making a notepad cover until Paula Dobson showed me how easy it was at her Paper Caper in New Zealand. Such a simple thing and so effective too!

Using the painted Harvest bundle I stamped the flowers randomly in Dapper Denim on a piece of thick whisper white card stock to create a background.
This was trimmed and then covered in vellum.
 I have a great tip for using vellum!
My card layers are Thick whisper white, Basic Gray and Whisper White for the front images then a vellum *overlay.. 

I used the Stitched Shapes framelits and the layering ovals to create the area  for the sentiment.
I fussy cut a stamped image and placed this in the bottom right corner of the card partially over the the oval also.


*My Tip

If you are reasonably proficient at using Fast Fuse or even Snail Adhesive use a small section/strip on the fast fuse in the corners of the vellum to attach it to the card stock below. It is barely visible!
 Make sure that you have no balls of adhesive at the tip of your applicator, as these will be visible.

Open and Angled View

#KOCreationscards #Paintedharvest #Thankyou #Cardmaking #Stampinup #Vellumoverlay


For the note pad itself I created a cover to go over the front, top and a small section of the back. 
To do this I measured the size of the note pad and went from there.
I used a piece of thick Whisper White, Dapper Denim and a scrap piece of Basic Gray card stock to create my cover.
I stamped the images on the cover using the same inks as my card. For the note pad itself I only stamped the flower and only on every second sheet. This leaves a clean sheet of note paper for other purposes 😊

This is going to be a gift for a friend who has helped me out alot over the last few months and I want them to know that I appreciate them and all they do.

  • Fussy cut your flower image and set aside for a moment.
  • Stamp the 2 step leaf images in Lemon Lime Twist.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek - Christmas Snowflakes Gift Pack


Welcome back everyone 😊

Wowsers I have had some fun fitting everything in since I returned home from New Zealand.
When I actualy returned home I found 1 little girl who was rather ill with the flu and my little man failing fast.
That was Monday afternoon! It is now Saturday and things haven't changed all that much, but being a mum we are just expected to keep on keeping on 😎
To that end I am quite thankful that while I was away I created some projects using some new Holiday Catalogue products!
I am sharing some of these creations with you today along with some other talented ladies from the Crazy Crafters group for this Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek blog hop.

There are truly some gorgeous products avaailable in this season catalogue!

For my projects I chose to use the Merry Little Christmas 12 x 12 Old Olive and Kraft cardstock pack on page 10 of the Holiday Catalogue.
I paired this with the Winter Wonder Snowflakes that are available on page 37 and the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions embossing folder found on the same page.

Here is my project.

 CHRISTMAS SNOWFLAKES

Gift Set



The sentiment is part of one stamp from the Carols Of Christmas (146037) stamp set. This can purchased RIGHT NOW from the catalogue on it's own or paired with the matching thinlits in a bundle! How amazing is that!
You can order all other items from the Holiday Catalogue from the 1st of September.

If you are looking for directions to create the little pizza boxes then please click HERE
The link will take you to Susan Wong's blog. She is the lovely lady who taught me how to create them while I was in New Zealand.

Open View



My box was embossed using the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions embossing folder before putting it together while I debossed using the same folder for the card front. Debossing helped me to maintain cleaner lines and keep the card front interesting.
Using vellum, I die cut some smaller snowflakes from the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits dies which can be found on page 15 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. I used these to accentuate the Foil Snowflakes on the box and card...I know what you are thinking...'But they aren't foil!' 
Well I reversed them 😉 Don't they look amazing! 
When I turned the foil snowflakes over I realised I LOVED the wood cut look and even the texture of these, just as much as the intended foil fronts!




As I wanted this to be a complete gift set, I created a tile necklace using a small square of the Merry Little Christmas DSP found on page10 of the catalogue.
The holder and display for the necklace I created using the Old Olive cardstock.

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit with me and the sneak peek of some items available from the catalogue.
