Colour Inkspiration 27 – Gable Gift Box with Celebrate You

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to another Colour Inkspiration Blog Hop!  You’ve landed at Jacque Williams in New Zealand.   The Colour Inspiration Crew would like to start you off with inspiration by going through our blog hop!

Our colour combination for this fortnight is Pool Party, Island Indigo, Powder Pink and Melon Mambo:

 

I decided to venture away from cards this time and instead made a sweet little gift with the Silver Gable Boxes:

I have some special chocolates in the box.   I thought a few chocolates and water are a nice refreshment, especially when packaged up cutely!

 

 

I’ve altered these boxes a little bit. They come flat and without any window. I used one of the hearts from the Sweet & Sassy Collection to create the window here.

Next I embossed the body of the box with one of the folders from the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.   Metallic cardstock looks stunning when it’s been embossed – changes from “just shiny” to “wow that’s amazing”!

I used the gorgeous Celebrate You dies for the Amazing.  Isn’t this just a gorgeous font?

The Melon Mambo just sneaked in there with a little Enamel Shape.

 

The water bottles are easy to do. Simply take the original label off and wrap around with cardstock or printed paper.  I just added a few coordinating elements and done!

This would make a nice favor for a birthday party or a little thank you for guests at a bridal shower.

And thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay and the rest of the hop!  Next: Rebecca Scurr!

Cat Punch Card with Sponged Background

Hi friends!  Just a quick share today.  Over the summer, I tried to use up leftover kits and things from earlier classes, and today’s share is a remake of a card I did using the Foxy Friends Bundle, but this time I used the Cat Punch:

 

The background is quite simple to do:

You need to create some sort of mask, using a punch or the Circles Collection Framelits.  Cut a mask out of a scrap paper and overlay it on the Whisper White.

Pick up ink colour with the Stampin’ Sponge and gently apply ink through the circle mask. Blend.

And there you have an effective background!

 

I just love the simplicity of the Cat Punch.  I did some easy embossing on her and felt she didn’t need much more dressing up.

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember you get a free SaleABration gift with any order of $110 or more AND you get a free 13 Tutorial Bundle with any order of $50 or more through me during February!

Happy Sunday,

All Stars Blog Hop! Heartfelt Blooms in Night of Navy

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to the monthly All Stars Tutorial Blog Hop! You’ve landed at Jacque Williams’ blog in Auckland, New Zealand.   This month we are each featuring products from the SaleABration brochure – gifts you can earn for free!

 

You are now in New Zealand at Jacque Williams’ blog – welcome!  I’d love to share with you today another beautiful project with the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, but this time in Night of Navy:

 

I feel this particular stamp set lends itself to more simple designs, making it the perfect one to grab when you need a card in a hurry or something not too fussy, such as for a wedding or a funeral.  The image pretty much speaks for itself without too much more embellishing.

 

I’ve added a little embossing with the Petal Pairs Embossing Folder.   You could use Crumb Cake or Soft Suede for the word, but I’ve used the backside of the Foil Frenzy papers.  (I know it’s a crying shame to not use the foil side, but I wanted this rich, almost copper, brown colour).

And do you want copper rhinestones and pearls?  Simply colour them in with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends marker!  That marker will transform your standard embellishments into something more metallic looking for perfect project coordination.

 

While I had everything out on my table, I tried another version more with silver, which I think is as nice, although more subdued.  I’ve used the Silver Foil here for the die cut word.

 

I’m confident you will find a lot of use and success with the Heartfelt Bloom stamp set.  And even better, you get this one FREE with any order of $110 through me during February and March (other options available as well).  Supply list below.

If you like what you see, get even more!  Each of these designers has created an exclusive project and full colour tutorial.  Get this FREE with any $50 order with me during February or purchase for $20 NZD below.   You can also purchase a six month subscription for only $100 NZD during February:

Happiest of Days Birthday Card Set!

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

It’s really handy to have a stack of birthday cards on hand – all ready to go!   I’ve made a set of three birthday cards, inspired by Dawn Olschefske, with the Happiest of Days stamp set and the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes:

 

I’ve used three of the In-Colours so the set all coordinated: Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, and Powder Pink.  Each card also featured a different shape of the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies.

 

I colored in the images with the Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.  I wanted to keep these images relatively “clean” so just a little bit of colour was enough.

 

The Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes are perfect for a quick project or a little card to pair with a gift.  You get 20 prescored thick Whisper White card bases and 20 Whisper White Envelopes!  These also come in Very Vanilla.  You can whip these up in no time!

Colourful Seasons Birthday Card with Memories & More

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Over the summer, I’ve been tidying up all those unfinished projects – and one of them was to get my Memories and More albums up to date from the last Incentive Trip to Thailand.  Check!

The South Pacific demonstrators had a swap of Memories and More cards so we could easily put together a quick album upon return home (in theory), and I had a few of my swaps  left over:

 

So I turned them into birthday cards!   I’ve just made a simple card base here and put the Memories and More card on top.

Although I made this for a Thailand trip photos, I feel like this is also representing New Zealand today.  It’s hot and cruisy and beaches at our fingertips.

 

It’s almost the end of January, which means the January All Stars tutorial bundle is available as a free gift for only a couple more days!  Get this exclusive 12 tutorial bundle FREE with any order of $50 or more!    (Consider bumping your order up to $110 to get a SAleABration gift as well!!)

Watercolor Background Technique with the Pattern Party Masks

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry
1

Today’s share is a background technique using both watercolour paper and a mask.  It takes a little drying time, but is simple to do:

 

  1. Brush the colors onto Watercolor Paper until you get a look you like.
  2. While still wet, place the mask of your choice over the paper and secure it down really flat, like with weights or tape.  Spritz with water again.
  3. Let dry.  Do not use a heat tool if you mask is plastic!!  (I know this!)

 

It may take a few tries to get it to look just as you wanted. Experiment with different colors and with different intensities of color.

 


 

I wanted to keep the rest of it simple in order to highlight the background.  Just some black words and a contrasting, but complimentary, ribbon highlights this nicely.

Supply list below. And don’t forget: any order of $110 gets a free SaleABration gift! And shop with me and get a free bundle of 12 tutorials from 12 designers!

Thanks for stopping by and have a good Auckland Anniversary Weekend!

Colour Inkspiration #26 – Beautiful Peacock

Welcome to another kickoff Blog Hop from the Colour Inkspiration Crew!  You’ve landed in New Zealand with Jacque Williams.  I do hope you will join in on this fortnight’s colour challenge on the Colour Inkspiration Facebook page!

Challenge #26 features Emeral Envy, Bermuda Bay, Tranquil Tide, and Sahara Sand.  Really, this is just a wonderful colour combination for mermaids or . . .peacocks!

 

 

 

I would have never thought to put these colours together, so I appreciated the starting point with this challenge!  This card is remake of one Brandi Barnard showed us demonstrators at our OnStage training event in November.  I just loved her idea of using the ribbon here for the tail!

 

It’s easy to ruffle the ribbon down the side of your image. Simply use our Tear & Tape Adhesive and “wrinkle” the ribbon as you adhere. There’s no right or wrong here!

And the best news is this Beautiful Peacock stamp set is FREE with any order of $110 NZD!  Shopping list below.

Next stop: Nikki Spencer!
