All about Flowers | Kylie's International Blog Highlight




Hello, today its "All About Flowers" on Kylie Bertucci's International blog highlight. Flowers make us happy, and Stampin' Up! has some wonderful sets that feature gorgeous images of flowers.

I've made my card using the soon to be released Sweet Sioree Stamp set, it is featured in the Occasions Catalogue which launches on January 3 2018, it also has coordinating framelits, and the best part is when you bundle you save 10% PLUS you also qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item... win, win!



I love the Stitched Shapes framelits, and how they coordinate with the scalloped ovals in the Layering Ovals set, this was the starting point for my design, then I added the flowers and die cuts from Sweet Soiree, with a touch of Wink of Stella for shimmer, then mounting on the reverse embossed pattern from the Petal Burst embossing folder.




I used sponge daubers to apply the ink to the flower stamps, starting with the lighter colour in the centre and going darker towards the edge of the stamp.  Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo with Rich Razzleberry were used on the small flowers with a touch of Melon Mambo, Berry Burst and Rich Razzleberry on the large flower.

I would love if you could take the time to vote for my card at Kylie Bertucci's host page for this blog highlight,- The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that by clicking on the icon below:

Christmas Quilt | WWYS146

Welcome to this weeks with What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are sharing creations using the Christmas Quilt stamp set, there are also coordinating Quilt Builder framelits for the set too!

 Christmas Quilt
I decided to focus on the sentiment and gorgeous snowflakes from this set for my creation, and added a some bling with Silver Glimmer Paper 



I layered up the sentiment with the help of the trusty Triple Banner punch, so quick and easy! And in keeping with the "quilted" theme, I die cut my squares using the Stitched Shape framelits (these are one of my favourite accessories) and popped them up with Mini Dimensionals, you can see the layers better in this photo

Foil Frenzy for Christmas

As you would know I love shimmer and bling, so when I held a Cuppa & Craft class on the weekend I incorporated the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series paper into the Christmas theme.



Each attendee made a mini Bonbon that holds a Lindt chocolate (not telling how many of the sweeties didn't end up in the Bonbon!!!!) and a layered card featuring elements from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies. I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set (currently on sale at the time of this post). 


I can't decide on my favourite combination.... Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist


Or Calypso Coral? I'd love to here your favourite



I love the shiny shimmer that Foil Frenzy gave these projects, whilst not all traditional Christmas colours, they look fabulous, not to mention they coordinate!

***** If you are placing any orders that contain gifts for Christmas, please be advised to submit your order(s) by Monday, 11 December. Orders submitted after this date may not arrive before Christmas *****

Christmas Sweaters | WWYS145

Welcome to this weeks with What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are sharing creations using the Christmas Sweaters stamp set

 Christmas Sweaters by Stampin' Up!

Most Australia cities enjoy a warm to hot Christmas season, so we don't see many "gaudy" sweaters, but it was still fun to get in the spirit and create this card, helped by the fact that we have just had a cool and rainy weekend in Adelaide (yep, I was back in my track pants and ugg boots on Sunday after it was hot and humid 37 on Tuesday!!!) Here's my creation:


One of my bucket list items is a "White Christmas", so with that in mind I choose the snowflake sweater and coloured with my new Stampin' Blends using Pool Party and the light Bermuda Bay. I kept with my theme and added texture to the background with the Softly Falling embossing folder. The sentiment from Hearts Come Home fits perfectly with this set too!



The last touch was to add a little bling with Silver Thread, I also added a strand of Black to tie all the elements together, and lastly create the bow.
