I Love Roses

#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft

I simply adore the NEW Springtime Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). The touch of gold on this paper really adds a richness to your projects.
I paired the gorgeous DSP with the new Blossoming Basket bundle.
This bundle comprises of a stamp set and a Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)
I have used both for my card. 

Angled View

I coloured the basket of flowers using the Stampin' Blends which are also available in the Occasions catalogue on pages 30 and 31. Once coloured I fussy cut the image before mounting it over the embossed whisper white card stock.
I finished my card by adding some twine and mini sequins trim in black and a FREE item called Shimmer Ribbon in Basic Grey.

International Highlights - Blossoming Basket Bundle




Hello everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š

I am taking part today in the International Blog Highlights hosted by Kylie Bertucci
This involves demonstrators from all around the world coming together to share what they love with you in the one place.
Kylie hosts these highlights every month and has a different theme for each highlight.


This months theme is our Favourite Sale-A-Brations or Occasions item from the 2018 catalogues.
 I chose a Sale-A-Bration second release bundle that is now available called Blossoming Basket.


#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft


You can vote for my card by clicking the button below.
My card is Number 10 in the Gallery.

You Are Loved

#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft

For my card I used an antiquing effect with the new  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a stunning background.
Adding the white space with the same texture as the background behind the floral basket image helps seperate the layers and give each a  distinct energy, yet they still flow together seamlessy.

Antiqued Gold Embossing 

  • To create this effect emboss the card stock then dust with embossing bu   ddy pillow. 
  • Lightly wipe versamark inkpad over embossed area, spronkle with gold embossing powder, heat. 
  • Wipe the area again with memento ink and gently rub in with a tissue, reheat to seal.

I also used the Basket Weave TIEF for the focal circle behind the basket of flowers. 

Left Side View

#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft

My card base is Thick Whisper White with a layer of  embossed Sahara Sand. Behind the whisper white embossed circle is a scalloped gold foil circle. I stamped my flower basket in memento ink,
I then coloured the basket using my Stamin' Blends  and finally I fussy cut it.
Gosh I do love those Stampin' Blends, they are just so easy to use and give such vibrant colours. The colour lifter is so useful too! I used it for removing mistakes plus adding extra highlights on the flowers and the basket too!

Right Side View

#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft

To carry the colour through to the inside I just added a layer of Sahara Sand under a layer of whisper white and glued both to the inside to my card base.

To finish my card I added linen thread plus 6 pearl basic jewels. They just add a little delicateness that was needed to finish.

Crazy Crafters Weekly Highlights - Blossoming Basket Bundle



Hello everyone and welcome ๐Ÿ˜Š
I have a really pretty card project for you today.
I have entered this project into Kylie's Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights.
You can vote for the project you love just by visiting Kylies blog and clicking the little heart in the top right corner of the project you love the most.


#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft

I have used a new bundle that has just been released. It's called Blossoming Basket bundle (147505) and has a stamp set and a Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder or TIEF for short called Basket Weave. Did you Know that you can earn this bundle FREE just by shopping with me and spending $180. If $180 seems a lot why not try for $90 their are some gorgeous items in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue that you can earn for FREE just by spending $90

You can VOTE for my project by clicking HERE

#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft

For my card I used a Basic Black card base with an embossed layer of Thick Whisper White. 
I cut my circle from the embossed layer before I embossed. It is important to do it before you emboss with the folder, otherwise you will lose the gorgeous texture you have just created.
The embossed layer has added depth by adding dimensionals underneath to lift it up and away from the Basket image.

The black framing the circle has been cut using the largest layering circle and then using my paper snips, I cut around the outside edge of the negative following the mark left by the die.

#kocreationscards #blossomingbasket #2018saleabration #flowers #goldembossing #cardmaking #technique #stampinup #love #mothersday #birthday #papercraft
I stamped the basket onto a scrap piece of whisper white and then coloured it using the Stampin' Blends that are available now in the Occasions catalogue on pages 30 and 31.

The Stampin' Blends colours that I used are as follows:


Once finished I stamped the butterflies and repeated the process of colouring and fussy cutting. I also added clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies, just to make them shimmer and shine in the light.
The pretty little butterflies are held in place with glue dots.

I finished my card by grouping some pretty rhinestones down the left side of the card, this helped bring some balance and symmetry back.  

I do hope you have enjoyed this project today.

The Petal Palette set is just divine. You can colour the roses to match your colour scheme like I have done.

I have incorporated some different items to complete my card. A FREE item, the Tutti Frutti card base, you can just see the striped edges poking out. Also I used an existing annual item from the Oh So Eclectic dies, the green diamond lattice.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Colouring


Welcome ๐Ÿ˜Š
You are joining me today for a blog hop with the Stamping Dreams crew.
We are all focusing on colouring this month. Using some of Stampin' Up!'s fabulous colouring range.

I can't say I have a favourite of them, but I do enjoy colouring with the new Stampin' Blends that are now available.

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver. I will have a full list of blog hop participants closer to the end of this post.
  I have chose to use the wonderfully easy to use Stampin' Blends and the gorgeous Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalogue called Petal Passion, along with the Petal Palette bundle.

It's perfect for colouring as you can see below.

#kocreationcards #petalpassion #petalpalette #cardmaking #stampinup #stampinblends #birthdaycards #valentines

Here are my cards

Happy Birthday to You

#kocreationcards #petalpassion #petalpalette #cardmaking #stampinup #stampinblends #birthdaycards #valentines


I coloured my sheet (almost) completely before I decided to cut into it. I hated cutting it too ๐Ÿ˜ข  But in the end I think I managed to showcase the coloured paper as much as I could and created something beautiful to give as well.

 From The Heart

#kocreationcards #petalpassion #petalpalette #cardmaking #stampinup #stampinblends #birthdaycards #valentines

For both cards I have used the layering circle framelits plus the stitched shapes to create the focal area.

Hello everyone and Welcome ๐Ÿ˜Š

H๐Ÿ’—ppy V๐Ÿ’—lentines D๐Ÿ’—y  

I am so thrilled to be part of the International Highlights Top 10 Winners Blog Hop from January 2018.
Our theme from Jan 2018 was Occasions and 2018 Sale-A-Bration products and that is our theme for today too.
We hope you enjoy our projects, I will have a complete list of all winners blogs closer to the end of this post..

Below is my card that was chosen as an International Highlights Winner.
THANK YOU to all of you that voted for my card.

๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ

Here is the card that you voted into first place.


To see the full post for the above card please click HERE


I chose a 2018 Occasions bundle for today's project. It's one that I have been playing with since the release of the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catty's. 
I can't seem to put it down ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
 The bundle I chose is the Petal Palette bundle with the Memories and More card pack.

           

I also used some of the coordinating products from the Petal Passion suite.

Here is my card

Life is so Much Better With You In It

#kocreationscards #petalpassion #petalpalette #2018occasions #2018saleabration #valentines #cardmaking #papercraft #rubberstamping #stampinup #roses #inspiredbynature

A beautiful card just perfect for today ๐Ÿ˜Š being Valentines Day and all.
Can you see the embossed pieces in the background? I embossed a scrap piece of Wild Wasabi and then split it down the middle.
The sentiment and lattice runner are part of the Petal Palette bundle. The lattice runner is held in place with the help of the ribbon adn glue dots.
The layer beneath the vellum sentiment is a small striped Memories and More card with a piece of Whisper White trimmed to size with a circle die cut out.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous rose bunch.

#kocreationscards #petalpassion #petalpalette #2018occasions #2018saleabration #valentines #cardmaking #papercraft #rubberstamping #stampinup #roses #inspiredbynature

For my rose bouquet I actually coloured and then fussy cut part of the Petal Palette Designer Series Paper. The rose arrangement on the DSP is slightly different to the rose stamp in the bundle.
I added the gorgeous organza ribbon as a bow accent, tied off with some silver metallic thread.
I finished my card with a few scattered rhinestones.
