Ink It Stamp It - Blog Hop - Technique



Welcome to the Ink It Stamp It Design Team.
We are sharing with you today some techniques.

I adore colouring in all forms, so I chose to do some colouring using pencils and Stampin' Blends for today's post and created some Christmas theme designs.

Here they are all together. 



The first two steps for colouring.



 I started taking pictures of the steps with my colouring for the card below.

Merry Christmas

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3Get1FREE #StampinUp30 #ChristmasinJuly #UnderTheMistletoe #ChristmasCards #CardMaking

But I then decided that a video would be quicker and easier as you can see me working and watch the progress.




I used the same technique for colouring all of the cards you can see below.

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3Get1FREE #StampinUp30 #ChristmasinJuly #UnderTheMistletoe #ChristmasCards #CardMaking
For this card and the one below I have used a new bundle that is available to customers during August Only! (more info below)

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3Get1FREE #StampinUp30 #ChristmasinJuly #UnderTheMistletoe #ChristmasCards #CardMaking
This card below was created using the same format as the video. The only difference being the Baker's Twine instead of the Real Red Ribbon.

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3Get1FREE #StampinUp30 #ChristmasinJuly #UnderTheMistletoe #ChristmasCards #CardMaking
I adore how easy it is to create cards just using a colouring technique and the gorgeous DSP that Stampin' Up! has on offer.

Buy 3 Get 1 FREE - Natures Poem


Did you know about this WONDERFUL OFFER???
 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Promotion with Stampin' Up!® during July.


I purchased my faves from the list above.
Natures Poem, Animal Expedition and Tropical Escape. My FREE choice was the Under The Mistletoe DSP. (Sharing those projects on the 20th)
A couple of days ago I hopped with E.S.A.D and shared what I created using the Tropical Escape DSP You can see that post HERE.
I have also shared the Animal Expedition DSP you can see that post by clicking HERE

Today I am sharing a couple of cards using the Natures Poem DSP

You Are Wonderful


#KOCreationsCards #NaturesPoem #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30  #InspiredbyNature #CardMaking #Leaves

I decided to keep these cards extra simple by just using layers. I have added extra leaves by using the matching Bundle for this DSP called  the 'Rooted In Nature' bundle. It comprises of  two sets of coordinating stamps with matching dies.

I decided to lift the Grapefruit Grove colour as the Rich Razzleberry didn't need alot of help.
Leaving clean space to one side of the DSP I have added extra leaves in Grapefruit Grove. The sentiment has been created using a mix of Stampin' Write markers and the ink pads.

#KOCreationsCards #NaturesPoem #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30  #InspiredbyNature #CardMaking #Leaves

To create this effect with the DSP, I cut 1 piece of  DSP only at 14.1cm x 9.7cm and trimmed into two pieces by slicing on a slight angle.
I made my Rich Razzleberry layer 14.5 cm x 10.5 and by laying one piece of the sliced DSP over the top marked where I had to trim. I then cut and glued the DSP into position.

Home decor SU style - Scrap DSP use




Hello everyone 😊
Welcome to my blog. I am hopping today with a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world. We are sharing with you our ideas for Home Decor items, all created using Stampin' Up!® products.

Today I have decided to share an idea for using up small bits of Designer Series Paper. And it's not a better time to do so! With the buy 3 get 1 free happening right now with Stampin' Up!® for the month of JULY.
More info further down this post.

Here is what I have created.

Decorative Fridge Magnets.

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3get1free #JulyPromo #StampinUp30 #DIY #HomeDecorSUStyle #FridgeMagnets #PaperCraft #DesignerSeriesPaper

What do you think?
Yes I know the sloth is upside down lol.

The reason these came about is because I had been creating for another blog hop (ESAD a few days ago) and had these little bits laying around on my desk. I hate throwing anything away if I can help it.
I kept thinking about how I could use these pretty strips and make something just a little different too.
I started going through my bits and bobs containers and I found these ~ Cabochon domes. They had been given to me (my sister is a jeweller) They got me to thinking...I have made these into necklaces before using DSP, but .... this time I needed something for the home. I kept digging and found the Adhesive Magnetic Sheet scraps from when I had put my thinlits inside my stamp cases. 
And from there the small niggle became a full blown idea, which began to turn into a planwith the plan then becoming finished magnets! 
In all honesty I could have kept going and made loads more.
Something I am now seriously considering doing for an upcoming State Demo Crafting get together next month in Tassie. Do you think they would love these as a swap??
Please let me know what you think. of this idea.

1 set of 3 using 'Natures Poem' DSP

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3get1free #JulyPromo #StampinUp30 #DIY #HomeDecorSUStyle #FridgeMagnets #PaperCraft #DesignerSeriesPaper


 Here are the steps to create these beautiful Fridge Magnets.

  • Get your supplies together - Clear Cabochon Domes, Scrap pieces of DSP, Adhesive Magnetic Sheets or scraps of them ~these can be purchased at any craft store..
  • Use a scrap piece of DSP trace the shape of the cabochon on it and cut it out. 
  • Glue to the cabochon using the fine-tip glue pen, so that the pattern is facing the top of the dome. 
  • Leave to dry for a minute and then trace the Cabochon shape onto the back of the Magnetic sticky sheet covering. 
  • Cut it out with scissors and adhere to the back of the cabochon. 
 Voila, you have created your very own magnet set. 

1 set of 3 using 'Tropical Escape' DSP

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3get1free #JulyPromo #StampinUp30 #DIY #HomeDecorSUStyle #FridgeMagnets #PaperCraft #DesignerSeriesPaper

AND

1 set of 6 using the 'Animal Expidition' DSP 

#KOCreationsCards #Buy3get1free #JulyPromo #StampinUp30 #DIY #HomeDecorSUStyle #FridgeMagnets #PaperCraft #DesignerSeriesPaper


I am one of those people that has their children's art works and quite a few school notes stuck all over the fridge with magnets. 
Quite often I will also grab the odd magnet from the $2 shop too, if I see one I like. That's probably one of the reasons I liked creating these so much 😂😂😂


Well I do hope that you have enjoyed this idea, I was pretty excited creating them.

Buy 3 Get 1 Free - Animal Expedition DSP


Did you know about this WONDERFUL OFFER???
 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Promotion with Stampin' Up!® during July.


I purchased my faves from the list above.
Natures Poem, Animal Expedition and Tropical Escape. My FREE choice was the Under The Mistletoe DSP.
Yesterday I hopped with E.S.A.D and shared what I created using the Tropical Escape DSP You can seee that post HERE

Today I am focusing on the Animal Expedition DSP and a lovely couple of cards. 
One of which is a fun Tri Fold card.

Here is my first card created using the Animal Outing DSP.

This cute little number could be for a birthday or even to welcome a little neice or nephew to the family.

Wild About You

#KOCreationsCards #AnimaleExpedition #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #TriFoldWindowCard #Animals #InspiredbyNature #BabyCards

For this card I used one piece of DSP only. I cut this DSP sheet at 10.1cm x 14.5cm and then turned it over and cut another piece slightly smaller at 9.7cm x 14.1cm.
I added the sentiment and framed it using the Frames Elements. I used the matching Dies to die cut this adorable Rhino to make this image stand out from the rest I placed him slightly over the top of the sentiment.

Using the DSP once again I decide I would have a play with a Bronwyn Eastley AddINKtive Designs tutorial called Tri-Fold Window Card  (Available Here)


You are getting a little sneak peek of a new product today 😮 This product will be available to customers soon.


It's called the Colour Your Season bundle and you will be able to order it from the 1st of August until the 31st of August.
Contact me for more information.


Here is my Tri-Fold Window Card.

Saying Hello


#KOCreationsCards #AnimaleExpedition #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #TriFoldWindowCard #Animals #InspiredbyNature #BabyCards

For some of these images the matching Framelits will die cut, for others you have to fussy cut. The ones that I fussy cut were the Sloth, the Chameleons and the left facing Giraffe and right facing Rhino plus the 2 little birds. Oh and I fussy cut the frog and branch as the die doesn't match the size of this DSP image.

#KOCreationsCards #AnimaleExpedition #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #TriFoldWindowCard #Animals #InspiredbyNature #BabyCards


You know what I love about this design?
It is totally reversible!
You can have it front facing or back facing and if done properly looks just as great both ways.


#KOCreationsCards #AnimaleExpedition #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #TriFoldWindowCard #Animals #InspiredbyNature #BabyCards

I was thinking about adding a sentiment to the front. But thinking about it was as far as I got lol.

#KOCreationsCards #AnimaleExpedition #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #TriFoldWindowCard #Animals #InspiredbyNature #BabyCards

I do love the tunnel effect you get with the different  sizes and layers of the Stitched Frames in the new Colour Your Season bundle.

ESAD Designer Series Paper buy 3, get 1 free promotion blog hop


Hello and welcome to another wonderful ESAD hop.
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver- KOCreations Cards. You have arrived from Sharon Daltons post.
 If you have just started the hop here, don't stress 😉 I have a button further down for you to continue moving through to the next lovely designer in the hop Siobhan Fitzsimmons



We are focusing our creative energies today on the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Promotion happening with Stampin' Up!® during July.


I purchased my faves from the list above.
Natures Poem, Animal Expedition and Tropical Escape. My FREE choice was the Under The Mistletoe DSP.

I thought about sharing a project from each DSP that I purchased in preparation  for this hop and started creating. 
But, I found myself ending up going back again and again to the Tropical Escape DSP. 
So that is what I concentrated on - Tropical Escape.
 I will share my other projects and link them back to this post over the coming week.

Here are a couple of projects using just 1 sheet of the gorgeous Tropical Escape DSP

#KOCreationsCards #TropicalEscape #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #Scrapbook #Flowers #InspiredbyNature #TropicalCards #TropicalLayout #Frangipanni

I had been looking at the Painted Harvest set and thought that it would look great with the Tropical Escape DSP. I have to say I adored how it looked. For my second card I mixed in the Botanical Tags and the Stitched Labels dies.

#KOCreationsCards #TropicalEscape #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #Scrapbook #Flowers #InspiredbyNature #TropicalCards #TropicalLayout #Frangipanni

 I fell in love with these colours and the papers and decided to grab the matching Stamp and die set that co-ordinates with the Tropical Escape DSP - the Tropical Chic bundle, and had even more fun 😍


I created a framed scrap page of my trip to Fiji for my best friends wedding in 2014, along with some gorgeous tropical themed cards.

#KOCreationsCards #TropicalEscape #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #Scrapbook #Flowers #InspiredbyNature #TropicalCards #TropicalLayout #Frangipanni

In these photo's above my friends had just been declared Husband and Wife on one of the gorgeous beaches on Mana Island where these were taken. It was an absolutely gorgeous spot to get married and I was so very honoured to have been asked to be in attendance and witness this important day.


#KOCreationsCards #TropicalEscape #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #Scrapbook #Flowers #InspiredbyNature #TropicalCards #TropicalLayout #Frangipanni

I was using some of the BRIGHTS colours for my card above, Gorgeous Grape, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green. I made a couple of cards using these colours. One of which is going to be part of a retreat that has been organised for August in Tasmania for Tassie demo's. (Are you a Tassie Demo? Feel free to contact me for more info)


#KOCreationsCards #TropicalEscape #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #Scrapbook #Flowers #InspiredbyNature #TropicalCards #TropicalLayout #Frangipanni

For the card above I have added a gold Library clip with matching Powder Pink ruffled ribbon just for a touch of bling. The flowers have been finished with Artisan Pearls.

I found something out whilst I was playing with these stunning papers! Some of the leaf dies match the DSP leaves! 😮😍 How amazing is that! I used the leaf dies  and placed the die cut leaves from the DSP on the card below plus my scrap page above!

#KOCreationsCards #TropicalEscape #Buy3Get1Free #StampinUp30 #Scrapbook #Flowers #InspiredbyNature #TropicalCards #TropicalLayout #Frangipanni

For this card above I have used the window sheet to create a see through section so that the sentiment can be seen from the front and is inside the card when opened to read the more personal message..

Thank you for stopping by my post for this wonderful hop.
