Stampin' Up! Australia - Bokeh Card and the Alphabet Rotary Stamp

Hi

I made this card for the TGIF Challenge - watercolour + a sketch....I took a bit of artistic licence with the sketch and skewed it a bit.

I did something different and made a collage card....a piece of watercolour bokeh, some All Abloom Designer Series Paper, a metallic doily, some sequins, and a piece of glittery foam from a craft project.

I put them all together on some Kraft card stock and added a Naturals Expressions Wooden embellishment. :)

I recently watched a beautiful documentary called Making Mail which showcases a truly incredible art. It has inspired me to start making some more of my own mail art to accompany my handmade cards.

This card is going out as a surprise to a fellow blogger. I hope she likes it. :)



I made my own envelope from Kraft card stock with the Envelope Punch Board, did some bokeh technique on it, and then stamped the address (blotched out here for privacy) with the Alphabet Rotary Stamp. :)


I also stamped a fun message inside with the Alphabet Rotary stamp.....I didn't worry too much about the boo-boo...I just stamped it again. :)



Here is the challenge theme and the sketch...

Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Flower Patch

Hi

Welcome to another Artful Stampers blog hop!

With the influx of any new catalogue comes the neglect of stamps on the shelf...so I pulled out trusty Flower Patch for this card.

I used the sketch from CASE This Sketch as a guide, but I couldn't get the sentiment to work on its side, so I flipped them horizontally. I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp for the sentiment - a fun vintage typography look.

I had a heap of fun stamping my envelope too....you should stamp your envelopes if you don't already...it's another blank canvas waiting to be adorned! :)




Here are our colours for the challenge...

Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper

Hi!

Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Monique's blog.

This week the Blog Hop challenge is all about CASE-ing a project from the Love and Sympathy section of the 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Catalogue. 

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.

Here's my card...


I used the Timeless Elegance Designer Series paper and, differing from the inspiration photo, I kept the colour palette as Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Tip Top Taupe which are the colours in the DSP. 

I layered the DSP against a Basic Black layer and then onto a vanilla card base. My sentiment is from Butterfly Basics and I added a flourish from Flowering Flourishes onto my sentiment panel in Tip Top Taupe. The sentiment is die cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits

Here's my inspiration:

Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Bountiful Border - Farmers Market DSP

Hi!

I thought I would put this stamped image from Bountiful Borders to good use (I've had it sitting on my craft desk waiting patiently to go on a card). I layered it onto some Farmers Market Designer Series Paper and Blackberry Bliss card stock.

I added a Gold Foil doily and sequins and a wooden sentiment from Expressions Natural Elements for some added fun.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.

Here's my card...
