World Card Making Day Blog Hop


WELCOME 

to our WORLD CARD MAKING DAY blog hop.

Today we are celebrating WORLD CARD MAKING DAY by showcasing current Stampin' Up® products. There will be plenty of inspirational creations for you to see during this blog hop, all made using our fabulous Stampin' Up® range.

Currently you are here with me Kim Oliver, I am from Tasmania, the island state right at the bottom of Australia. 

You will find a list at the end the page, this shows the names of all the other wonderful participants of this blog and will enable you to move smoothly from blog to blog to enjoy all of the gorgeous creations on display.

 This wonderful event that has been organised by Kylie Bertucci 



I had my BBB delivered during the week and inside was something I have been patiently waiting for.

Insert HUGE grin here!

  Most (when I say most I mean all lol) of the products used today are from the current Holiday Catalogue & the Current Annual catalogue, both of which you can view in the tabs at the top of my page, under the large banner.

I designed today's cards thinking about the people who have helped me get to where I am today. 
I wouldn't be here if not for them :-)
Thank you x

Because of this I am entering these into GDP RAK challenge this week #GDP055


PETALS, PAISLEYS AND POSIES

I used layers as the building blocks for these two cards. 
I started with a thick Whisper White card base cut to 10.5 x 15 cm then built my layers according to the colours in my Paisley designs. 
I stamped the Paisleys using the Paisley and Posies Stamp set, then die cut them with the Paisleys Framelits. All currently available in the Holiday Catalogue. 
The main recessed paisleys have been stamped in versamark before inking the stamps with colour. I used clear embossing powder over the top and then my heat tool to seal it all. This made the colouring of the Paisleys a little easier, less chance of colour escaping into unwanted areas. 
I used a length of ribbon on each card from the matching Petals and Paisleys Ribbon Trio Pack to add some textural elements.

The very last layer is Whisper White, this has been attached using Stampin' Dimensionals for added depth. Both of the stamped and die cut paisleys on each card were adhered straight onto the Petals and Paisleys DSP underneath, so that the Paisleys are recessed. 
The little rosette has been placed using Stampin Dimensionals and topped with a Crushed Curry enamel shape from the Regals pack. Each card has a small die cut copper accent added under the rosette, just to give them a little added shine and interest  :-)   
The colours used in each card were Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy.

As you can see, I carried my theme through to the inside of both cards. 
Still leaving plenty of room to write a personal message.


I hope you enjoyed my cards for
