Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up Pineapple

Hi!

Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Alisa's blog.

I thought I would try out a technique that was shown to us at the recent Stampin’ Up! Onstage Live event (formerly known as ‘Convention’).

The technique is where you get a standard block image stamp...but use a marker to highlight parts of the stamp. On the Pineapple stamp below, I inked the leaves in Smoky Slate, but used the Basic Grey marker to highlight some of the shadowed parts. It came out quite well I thought! :)


The band of bling is from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack...I used a combination of small circle and a star at each end. It reminds me of a brand of beer! :)

...and yes, there is a hint of a sneak peek of a new stamp, but that’s all I’m going to say about that. ;)

Here’s our theme for this week:

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Day of Gratitude - Thanksgiving card

Hi!

So we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia but I have a couple of American friends to whom I always send a Thanksgiving card. They are very special people and I appreciate their friendship so what better way to appreciate that than a handmade card! :)

The inspiration image at The Card Concept this week is a lovely Autumnal/Thanksgiving image.

Here’s my very clean & simple card..




I used a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp called “Day of Gratitude”. It has the most gorgeous medallion flower image and I love the greeting....and look at the script on the ‘G’!! *sigh*

I’m a typography nerd I know. :)






I hope you like my card! :)

I have closed my online store but I am still an active demonstrator so if you would like to place an order feel free to email me. :)


Cheers

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Star of Light Christmas Card

Hi!

The inspiration image at The Card Concept this week is a beautiful mint green typewriter with a spray of shabby chic flowers.

I am still stocking up my Christmas Card stash so I thought a soft pastel toned festive card would be lovely!



I used the new ‘Star of Light’ stamp set and found that there is a cool ‘two step’ stamp in it which looks like I have carefully shaded the snowflake image when in fact, it is just a perfectly layered second stamp!

I stamped the main image in Melon Mambo and the second layer in Flirty Flamingo.  It looks SO GOOD in real life! I might make more of these cards....I think this is my favourite Christmas card in my stash now!

Here’s the inspiration image:



I was also inspired by the sketch at CASE This Sketch this week. 





I hope you like my card! :)

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Halloween Birthday card

Hi!

The inspiration image at The Card Concept's challenge this week is beautiful patterned pumpkin decoration - look at those cool chevrons!

I was inspired by the orange chevrons and the Halloween imagery. I know we don’t ‘do’ Halloween here in Australia, but our street and most of our suburb celebrate it and it is a lot of fun. Last year we got about 220 kids through the street - that’s a lot of sugar!! :)

I have a friend who recently celebrated a birthday - so this card is a belated greeting to her. She, like me, loves witches and the ‘stranger things’ so this little stamp is perfect!




Here’s the inspiration image:






I hope you like my card! :)

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Watercolour Wishes Birthday Card

Hi!

Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Tamsin’s blog.


Here are the essentials:

  • I used a fun cursive sentiment stamp from the Watercolour Wishes card kit. 
  • Use up your scraps! This great sketch from CASE This Sketch really lends itself to a good rummage through the scraps folder. :)
  • Layer the pink. I layered a Flirty Flamingo layer onto the Blushing Bride card base since these two colours were part of the same spectrum. 

Here are our colours for this week:



Here’s the sketch from CASE This Sketch:
