Back again with a Blog Hop with the Latte Girls who are bringing you a Freshly Brewed Spring Is Coming. It really is just around the corner. I’ve noticed all the wattles out in full bloom and many blossoms on trees too. It will be lovely to have weather which is a little warmer.

20160824_145931

Today’s card features flowers which remind you of Spring, right? I’ve used the Falling Flowers stamp set and the coordinating May Flowers Framelits Dies. The Designer Series Paper is from the 6″ x 6″ Stack called Serene Scenery and it uses gorgeous coordinating colours.

The Layering Ovals Framelit Dies were great for this card and so easy to make a frame. Tip: Cut the larger frame first and layer that piece on top of the piece you want to cut the smaller frame from and then place the framelit correctly and cut. You have a perfect double frame.

Don’t forget to stamp on the inside of your card and the outside of the envelope too. I hope you enjoyed today’s project. I’d love to read your comment.

Make sure you check out the inspiration from Leonie and Narelle and leave a comment on each blog. We love to read what you think of our projects.

Thoughtful Branches can be used in many different ways with many different effects. Here’s another card I made for my recent class where I tought how to make the ‘crumpled, shiny look’.  The ladies just love learning to make this card with this great bundle.

20160814_180855_LLS

We used some of my current favourite colour combinations of Rose Red, Sweet Sugarplum and Pear Pizzazz along with some sponging for depth and Wink of Stella for glimmer and shimmer.

20160814_180924_LLS

Here’s a closer look at the flower canopy where you can see the Wink of Stella effect. Just a gorgeous bundle.

Today we’re making a card because we’re thankful. All week Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world have been celebrating Demonstrator Support Team Appreciation Week. These are the lovely people behind the scenes who fix up all our mistakes, listen to our complaints and are generally the good-fairies in Demonstrator Land and we’re so appreciative of them. So I felt it only fitting to share how to make a card, along those lines.

I held a Thoughtful Branches class last Sunday and this is one of the cards we made. It’s another one done on Watercolor paper and painted with Aqua Painters, this time using different colours to the last. This card is more muted and I think I prefer it. It’s a card which was sent to the South Pacific Stampin’ Up! Australia Off ice on behalf of many demonstrators who contributed to Demonstrator Support Week. I’m sure they’ll like it.

We embossed first using a flower stamp from Best Birds before wetting the whole piece of Watercolor Paper and adding Dapper Denim, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz ink to the card front.

20160814_180736_LLS

Wr added Pool Party ink to the flower to stamp the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope. We also used the little leaf branch from Thoughtful Branches to stamp some leaves in Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment was stamped using the Thoughtful Banners Bundle which has a stamp set and co-ordinating punch. We added some Silver Metallic Thread behind the sentiment and added the Silver Glimmer Leave with Liquid Glue.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

This week the Latte Girls are bringing you inspiration for Baby. Make sure you check out the other blogs in the hop to see their inspiration.

Mine’s a quick card which features Sweet Sugarplum (you didn’t know it was one of my new favourite colours, did you?) and Copper Emboss Powder. I hope you like what I made.

20160814_180506_LLS

Here’s my Baby Bear which I stamped in Sweet Sugarplum first and then stamped over it with the next stamp in Versamark and embossed with Copper Emboss Powder. It’s quite glimmery when you look at it but the photo isn’t quite doing it justice. I’ve used the Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon on the bottom of the top panel.

20160814_180529_LLS

The card is made on Very Vanilla Card and I had already had a couple of these gorgeous bears stamped in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, so I used one and hand cut it and adhered it to the inside of the card and tied a bow in the Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon and used Glue Dots to adhere that to Baby Bear.

The bow on the front of the card is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum where I have stamped off for the block image and stamped straight on for the more lined image. I have hand cut it out and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There is a very exciting challenge this week – casing the wonderful Tanja Kolar.  Tanja is a much loved member of the Global Design Project Challenge team. Here’s her challenge to CASE:

GDP048

Isn’t this a lovely card to CASE. Mine’s a little different and I hope you like it. I have continued with my Water Colouring and used Flirty Flaming with Emerald Envy.

20160814_180619_LLS

So the ‘bunch’ of flowers are stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink and coloured with Flirty Flamingo on Watercolor Paper. This si backed on some Flirty Flamingo with the next layer being Whisper White on which I have used Soft Suede to sponge around the edges and stamp using a couple of stamps from Timeless Textures.

20160814_180638_LLS

I’ve stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink and banner cut it with my snips. I added some twists of Linen Thread on the opposite end to the banner cut and adhered it to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon which ‘hold’ the bunch of flowers together on the stems which are stamped with Emerald Envy.

Now, don’t forget to visit the Global Design Project 048 Case The Designer to see what the Design Team have for their awesome inspiration and have a look at the other challenge entries.

So, last Saturday I held my monthly Technique Class and we learnt various techniques associated with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. I used one of these same folders on a card the other day. It was a Thank You card and I used it behind a Thoughtful Branches design. You can see it here.  Today’s was ink direct to the folder and we used Bermuda Bay Ink.

142345G

Here’s a Stampin’ Up! Video which gives you a few ideas for this great bundle.

I’ve used the new Delicate White Doilies behind my pair of flowers and used 3 each of the smaller petals to make up 1 flower. I stamped the main image first in Bermuda Bay and stamped off and the second image is stamped full strength. The same is done with the stems in Old Olive and then cut with Paper Snips.
The base of the flower is the 5 pointed star again stamped off in Old Olive and then using the main stamp, stamped full strength. On the inside I also created a flower in the same way but used one of the smaller petals.
Let me know what you think of this card and the techniques described and you may win a prize. (Australian Residents Only).

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
