Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Fairy Celebration

Hi!

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

I made this card for little girl in my son’s class. He attended her 6th birthday today and I thought she might like this card. :)

I used the technique for this week - the Faux Wax Seal - on the envelope. I stamped the little fairy image into the molten copper embossing powder and it left a cool effect! Shelli Gardner does a great little tutorial on this on her blog here

The seal looks nicer in real life. It kinda looks like a brown blob in my photo but actually it is very shiny and pretty. My advice is to keep the embossing powder nice and thick - you want that displaced look around the edges for an authentic wax seal look.  

I took the colouring cues for the fairy image from the colours featured in the Affectionately Yours DSP. They work beautifully I think. I also put some sparkly Wink of Stella on her wings, the flowers and the toadstool. :)

Hi!

Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Annette’s blog!

Blame me for the weird colours and the ‘throwback’ sketch! I haven’t done a blog hop in a while so as ‘punishment’ (LOL) it fell to me to suggest the challenge. :)




Here are our colours for this week:

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Bokeh wedding card

Hi

Just a quick post from me, since I’ve been quiet of late. SO busy working full-time now, but I managed to steal an afternoon today to do some crafting. :)


Some bokeh technique here, plus some use of scraps that I had in a folder....some paper flowers and a punched piece of gold foil cardstock. I thought it looked good on the bokeh background with the wooden sentiment piece. I painted the wooden sentiment with clear ‘Wink of Stella’ to make it shimmery. :)


Cheers

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Pineapple Birthday Card

Hi!

I’m loving this new Pineapple background stamp from the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. I went crazy with some rainbow brush strokes (from Work of Art) in the background - a mix of 4 new In Colors and 3 from last year.



I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and flipped it. :)



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
