Colour Inkspiration #21 – Flirty Flowers Pocket Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

 

Welcome to Colour Inkspiration Challenge #21!  You’ve landed in New Zealand at Jacque Williams’ blog! This fortnight we have a softer colour palette of Sahara Sand, Rose Red, PeekaBoo Peach, Soft Sky, and Pear Pizzazz:

 

My stamp set of choice this time is the Flirty Flowers:

 

All the colours are in there, even if just in a tiny quantity.  I must admit I used Berry Burst instead of the Rose Red simply because I needed a matching ribbon.  Both are excellent colours.

 

I chose to make another version of my Pocket Card, which is a great one for something a bit different and to feature the clean lines of this stamp.

 

 

The PInewood Planks Embossing Folder adds a bit of texture in contrast to the soft colours and flowers.  Tuck in a gift voucher or a photo for a complete gift!

Colour Inspiration #20 – Orange Blossom Pop Up Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to another Colour Inkspiration Crew Blog Hop!

 

This fortnight’s challenge is a rich colour combination in Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Dapper Denim, and Always Artichoke:

 

 

I love the picture that inspired this combination and took my inspiration directly from there:

 

The stamp set is Orange Blossom, one of those funny ones that just looks like black blobs in the catalogue, but when stamped in colour, it really comes to life!

 

One of my favorite things on this project is the Silver Foil done up faux punched tin style.  I’ve used the Quilt Top Embossing Folder backwards to create this effect.   I also used the new Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to colour those pearls more of an Ivory than a stark white (Stampin’ Blends coming 1 November!).

 

And inside the card we have this fun and easy pop up detail, along with a warm colour inside.

I hope you’ve had fun here at my blog – next stop: Kelly Kent!

Wow time flies sometimes!  It’s almost time for our Christmas Extravaganzas, and today’s share are a few of the projects from the Hamilton Extravaganza in July:

 

 

 

Rayleen Baker and Irene Wardlaw presented this very fun and cute Flag Card project featuring both Lemon Lime Twist and the  This Little Piggy stamp set.  Such an easy idea and so effective!

Kristine McNickle shared this lovely box with the group, using both metallics and the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set.  A nice box for an upcoming birthday!

 

 

Kay Syminton and Jenny Sutton taught this double pull-up project, using the ever popular Colorful Seasons suite.   Who doesn’t just adore this little deck chair?!

Merry Patterns in a Double Opening Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Today’s share is another double opening or double front card. This time I have remade some leftover card kits from the Hamilton Quilt and Craft show, so some of you may recognize the inspiration here:

 

These candles are remarkably easy to line up and I love how the “fill” stamps come separately so it’s easy to add in different colours.  Here I’ve used Soft Sky and Rich Razzleberry.   The ribbon is Fresh Fig, but I felt the Fresh Fig ink was too close to the Basic Black outline, so I’ve used her daughter, Rich Razzleberry.

Open the card once for a happy greeting.  The pine boughs are stamped in Always Artichoke, a colour that is making a personal comeback. I like it’s “dullness” against these other, brighter colours.

That’s probably not the best word to use, and certainly not technical  . . .  but you know what I mean . . .

 

Open the card a second time for a little greeting and a place to add your own writing and maybe a family photo.

 

You may have noticed that Rich Razzleberry pearl on the front of the card.  So here’s a sneak peek – YES those awesome alcohol markers are coming back. New and improved!!

We don’t have a release date yet for customers; the only way to get them right now is to Join My Team before 15 October!

What a happy colour combination.

 

Now how to get this awesome, limited edition stamp set:   Host a workshop with me before the end of October, place a large order of $500 or more yourself,  or call a few friends and put your orders together to equal $500 or more. Not only will you get$50 to spend in hostess money, but you will receive this stamp set FREE on top!

I’m also having a Stamp A Stack (12 Christmas cards for $35) 28 October where you can use and qualify for this set, too!  Register HERE.

Christmas Quilt Spool Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Happy Monday and today’s share is a card that can be used for Christmas or general – perfect for a fellow crafter or seamstress!   I give credit for the idea of this card to team member and friend, Rhonda Fawcett.  I thought it was just so stinking cute, being a seamstress myself.

 

On page 4 & 5 of the Holiday catalogue, you can find Quilted Christmas Suite (or see below), but don’t think this set is just for Christmas!  Other than the sentiments, this set is actually quite useful year round!

The shape of this spool card is made by using the Envelope Punch Board (makes 66 sizes of envelopes as well!) to create the little divets along the side.

Then simply embellish as you wish.  I’ve used the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper along with the new Real Red Ribbon to create the “thread”.  This cute flower also comes in the die set.

 

Oh and this is the best part!

How adorable is that little needle and spool of thread??!  Those come in the die set as well.  I love them!

I have done up an awesome wall art with this set that I’ll share in a few weeks, too.

I think you’d find a use for this set year round!  Supply list below.

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out my classes this week HERE.

Colour Inkspiration 17 – Brights with Flower Shop

The challenge round features colours that I wouldn’t naturally put together, but I do love this colour combination!  How fun, fresh, and bright!

I was inspired by samples at a recent team event to give this sort of “shaker card” a try:

Instead of an acetate window, I’ve used netting or tulle here to suspend the sequins.  Fun!

The flowers are from the Flower Ship stamp set, one that’s been a favorite for a few years.  Pair this with the Pansy Punch for quick embellishments!   But you’ll notice the leaves are new – this is the new Leaf Punch in the Holiday Catalogue.

 

This has been a fun colour combination to play with – something out of my “usual” recently!  Enjoy the rest of the hop – Lou Kitzelman is next!

We had such a great time at the Hamilton Quilt & Craft Show!   I came home with not much of a voice left, though!  We appreciate so much those who stopped by and said hello and grabbed a few bargains.  For those who have ordered product coming, they should be in my hands in a few days and then off to you as quickly as possible.

I had an ongoing class going all day every day at the show, and today’s share is one of the projects on offer – a beautiful vintage style pocket card using the popular Beautiful You stamp set:

The dancing girl is coloured using the Watercolour pencils and an aquapainter.

The pocket and tag look rich with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper – how I love that paper!!   It just goes with everything.

Join me for a class this month to make this project!

Thailand Achiever’s Blog Hop – Bench Fold Bookcase Builder Card!

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to another blog hop for worldwide demonstrators who have achieved the Thailand Grand Vacation!  (16 days until we go!!).  You have landed in New Zealand on the hop!

 

Today’s share is a fun Bench Fold card using the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack:

 

I thought this could be a great little card for masculine themes, teenagers, or babies!

 

I loved the Cable Knit folder used here for a little table runner.   Cute!

All the images are from the Bookcase Builder stamp set – so you can mix and match both colours and images to create anything you want on the little shelves.

 

And like magic, the card folds down flat (or relatively flat) to fit inside a standard envelope.

The new product here is also one of my top three picks for the new catalogue – the Wood Textures Designer Series Stack.  These are FABulous papers perfect for the guys, kids, flowers, vintage  . . . . just love them!

If you live in New Zealand and don’t already have a demonstrator, I’d love to be yours!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop!
