A Summer Time Butterfly Posy - #CI19

Image may contain: text

Welcome back everyone 😊
I am so happy you have decided to stop by my blog for a visit today.
I have been trying to use up some scraps that I have created over the last few weeks

So I decided I would create for Colour Inkspiration today.


I have been super busy these last few weeks with school holidays and then creating flat out once they went back to school.
Sometimes getting work done with the bairns at home isn't all that successful hahaha.
So I am just fitting this card in by the skin of my teeth 😅 .
I am creating a video for a International blog hop tomorrow and now must also go and prepare my pieces for that.


 The colours for this challenge are as follows.
Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate and Garden Green.

These colours just scream Spring and Summer to me 😊
And summer means Butterflies and flowers where I live
(I live in a very temperate climate)

Butterfly Posy


#KOCreationscards #Watercolorwings #Butterflybasics #Inpiredbynature #Easternmedallions #Cardmaking #Stampinup #CI19
I pulled out some all time favourites stamp sets for this card, Watercolour Wings and Butterfly Basics!
My card base is Thick Whisper White with a layer of Basic Gray under the card front.
The back ground of my card came from some stamping off I was doing for another card.
The medallion was from my play with the Eastern Palace when I first purchased it.
I punched the flowers from some scrap Daffodil Delight using the blossom builder punch.
The little fine pieces of white are the trimmings from my card lol. 
I love how delicate they look, don't you?.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Jenny Hall

Image may contain: text

Welcome Back everyone 😊
Today I am hopping with the Crazy Crafters Team and special guest Jenny Hall


We The Crazy Crafters have each chosen a project of Jenny's to CASE (Copy And Selective Edit)
You are currently here me me (Kim Oliver) and I have a full list of all participants closer to the end of my blog.

Here is the project I have chosen of Jenny's to CASE.

vintage style



Jenny created her card using the Cracked Glass technique using layers of heated embossing powder.
This was something I haven't tried before, I thought...
Why Not!


Here is my card.
I used the same layout for this technique as it has an old world feel with it that this technique deserves.

Dragonfly Daze


#KOCreationscards #Crackedglasstechnique #Dragonflydreams #Butterflybasics #Inspiredbynature #Cardmaking #Stampinup

I am over the moon with my first attempt!

Before my next attempt I MUST order some more embossing powder though 😲 lol. I just need to do this some more! It's so much fun hahaha.

I followed Jenny's instructions and layered the embossing powder 11 times, but my crack wasn't sharp. I ended up with more of a crazed effect. 
Which I quite like BTW 😍

HERE is Jenny's video showing how she made her card.


Angled View

#KOCreationscards #Crackedglasstechnique #Dragonflydreams #Butterflybasics #Inspiredbynature #Cardmaking #Stampinup

To create the scene I used two stamp sets. Dragonfly Dreams and Butterfly Basics.
I used the Shimmery white card stock to stamp my scene onto.
I masked over the dragonfly after the original stamping. I then stamped the fern leaf over the top. Being masked this gives the effect of having the fern fronds behind the dragonfly.
I coloured the dragonfly using the NEW STAMPIN BLENDS!!!

Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team Blog Hop - Technique


Welcome back everyone 😊
I am hopping today as part of the fabulous Ink It Stamp It! Design Team.
This month we will be sharing projects inspired by our favourite techniques. 
My favourite technique is Smooshing. 


#KOCreationscards #Stampinblends #Smooshing #Christmsacards #Cardmaking #Seasonofjoy
 

The full line up below will guide through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite technique is ? 

#KOCreationscards #Stampinblends #Smooshing #Christmsacards #Cardmaking #Seasonofjoy

I used this technique with the new Stampin' Blends.
 Stampin Up!'s soon to be released Alcohol Blending pens that us Demo's got to pre-order recently. 
Part of the perks of being a Demo 😍 



We get some time to learn how to use new products such as these, before they become available to you, our customers.
These markers will be avialble from the 1st of November!


You are ALL going to LOVE them!

They are super easy to use and each available colour has a light and a dark shade plus there are 2 skin tones and a colour lifter!
Here is a better picture of my smooshing and the resulting card of my play with these new pens.

Season Of Joy


#KOCreationscards #Stampinblends #Smooshing #Christmsacards #Cardmaking #Seasonofjoy


To achieve this effect for my smooshed background I used my Stampin' Blends on a clear Stamp Block. 
  1. Just scribble the alcohol pens onto the clear block in the colours of your choice. 
  2. Then pour on a small amount of alcohol blending solution over the scribbled colours, this re wets the inked area.
  3. Then turn upside down onto the glossy white card stock. 
  4. Smoosh around until the colours blend and you get a look you like.
  5.  Dab off excess with a baby wipe. 
Repeat steps 1 through 5 for darker colours.

The Stamp and Thinlits set I used are from the Christmas Pines set. 
The little flower is part of the Blossom Builder punch. 
The little swirls of paper are the trimmings from my card base edges. I really like the way these little scrappy pieces look on the card.
What do you think?

I finished this all of with some Gold Enamel shapes and a sentiment in the bottom right corner.

A super simple yet so very effective Christmas Card!


Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month to see our Christmas  projects. I'm Kim Oliver and to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next.

#KOCreationscards #Stampinblends #Alcoholmarkers #Cardmaking #Rubberstamping #Blackandwhiteplusone #Gracefulgarden

I chose to use a BRAND NEW product that is yet to be released to the public!
I really and truly can't wait for these to be released to everyone!!!



Stampin' Up! has created a range of Alcohol markers called *Stampin' Blends!!

We demonstrators got to pre-order these pens, so we can learn how to use them for the time when they are available to you, our customers.

OMG!! 
 I am so excited about this news!



 I know you are going to go WILD for them!

Here is my card created using these fantastic and AMAYYZZIIING new Alcohol Blends.


For You

#KOCreationscards #Stampinblends #Alcoholmarkers #Cardmaking #Rubberstamping #Blackandwhiteplusone #Gracefulgarden

Aren't the colours just so vibrant!!!

I used one pen only for this effect, plus the colour lifter to create the highlighted areas!
Each available colour comes in two shades,Cherry Cobbler for instance, has a light and a dark shade. I used the Light shade of Cherry Cobbler only and then went over areas I wanted a bit darker. I used the Lifter pen to take colour away to create my highlights. Its that simple!
The lifter also lifts away colour if you accidentally go outside the lines too
HOW AWESOME IS THAT!

I had some time to create yesterday so once again I looked through my list of upcoming events that I have in my Diary.
I found that I have an engagement party to attend soon as well as a wedding.

So I got cracking and created two gorgeously sweet cards just for these purposes. You will only see one here today though.


I am entering them both into the colour challenge at Colour Inkspiration challenge this week #CI18

Image may contain: people sitting, plant, motorcycle, flower and outdoor
The colours are Powder Pink, Basic Grey, Sahara Sand and Sweet Sugarplum.

I have entered one card already, but as I used the above colours again for this card I thought, why not enter again 😊

and here it is.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop DT - Mini Pizza Boxes




Welcome back everyone 😊
Today I am sharing with you all a project I designed using the Mini Pizza Boxes.

These gorgeous little mini Memory Keeping Boxes can be used as a decor item as well as a cute way to preserve those cherished memories and special occasions.
They can even be personalised with a photo in the front frame or used as is with their sweet quotes left visible.

They can be given as a gift for weddings or new baby arrivals, even engagements, or just given to someone you feel would love a little box of uplifting quotes. Or create one and keep it for your own purposes, just because you can 😉.

I designed these little boxes as I tend to keep little pieces of my life that make me smile and feel happy, a flower or leaf from here, a picture from there or even a lock of hair from my children.
These boxes are perfect for that purpose.

Cutting Guides

For full instructions please watch video below.

Pizza Box

  • Score all folds of Pizza box before putting it together. This makes sure that the box goes together nicely  and stays together.

Memories and More pack

For quotes and pictures on accordion pull out
  • Choose  16 - 18 of the smaller Memories and More cards and trim to 7.4cm in length so that they are square. They are 7.4 cm wide already. 11 of these are for the accordion and a minimum of two for inside of each envelope, possibly one for the front quote (depends on your choices)
For back cover quote
  • Choose a larger Memories and More card for the back quote and trim to 8.5cm

Co-ordinating DSP

2 small Envelopes 
  • cut 1 sheet to 5 ¼ inches square and the other x 5 ⅛" square. One is for the inside pop up envelope the other is to be placed on the accordion.
*Find the half way point on one edge to start the scoring and punching process with the punch board for making of the envelopes.
*Keep off cuts to use as the side covers for outside and inside if you like the pattern you chose. This may save you another sheet of DSP

Front and inside covers
  • You will need 3 sheets trimmed to 8.5cm square.
Side Covers outside and inside edges
  • 1 sheet of 6 x 6 DSP cut at 2.4 x 8.4, you should get enough to cover all sides inside and out  with an extra piece left over.
Front Frame
  • 2 sheets of contrasting colours cut 1 at 7.8cm square and the other at 8.3cm square.  

White A4 Card Stock

Accordion pull out piece
  • cut two lengths from the A4 at 8 x 29.7 cm. Score these pieces at 8,16 and 24 cm respectively then burnish and fold.
Envelope pop up (front inside)
  • The  ½ A4 piece needs to be trimmed to 7.5 wide x 16cm long then scored at 8cm.

Coloured A4 Card Stock

Accordion contrast and small Memories and More card backings 
  • Cut both of these sheets the full length at 7.7cm wide then trim each length to 7.7 cm so you end up with 12 7.7 cm squares. You will need 11 of them.

Ink Pads

  • Using a sponge ink the edges of all your trimmed DSP pieces (not cards or card stock)

Ribbon

Cut your ribbon into 3 lengths, 2 x 30cm and 1 at 15cm

Window Sheet

  • For frame cover, cut this at 8cm x 8cm square


Here is the video


Just a note that this video is roughly 19 minutes in length. The last couple of minutes has been distorted slightly by a glitch with my camera, this part is still watchable and fully understandable.

Count My Blessings - #GDP107

Welcome back everyone 😊


It is half way through the first week of school holidays here in Tassie, and I am ALREADY exhausted! Hahaha
We have been travelling in the car every second day for over 4 hours visiting grandparents and then having friends over playing in between those travelling days.

I finally managed a day at home today with out visitors or travelling or phones ringing.
I just sat outside in the sunshine and watched my children happliy playing with their pets!
I realised once again ( i quite often have this feeling come over me) that I am one of the lucky ones in life. I am so very grateful for my family. 
They fill my life and my heart with laughter and love each and every single day.

So, while the were playing, I created a card that expresses how I feel about my family.
AND

here it is.

Count My Blessings

#KOCreationscards #GDP107 #Gratitude #Countmyblessings #Familylove #Love #Giving#Stampinup #Stampinwritemarkers

While I was editing the photo's I checked out the GDP page as I haven't had much of a chance to actually play with any of their challenges over the last few weeks. I adore seeing all of the gorgeous entries that are placed every week and regularly visit to see whats happening. 
Well I found that their theme this week is Gratitude #GDP107 

Whoohoo, I have a card I can enter this week 😄


Here is the inside view

#KOCreationscards #GDP107 #Gratitude #Countmyblessings #Familylove #Love #Giving#Stampinup #Stampinwritemarkers

To colour the images on the inside and the front I used my Stampin' Write Markers and coloured the areas with the thick nib end. 
I used Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry. Once all coloured I huffed my breath on the stamp and then pressed firmly onto the paper.

the front image has also been lightly coloured with an aqua painter to lift the flower just a little.
the background DSP is from Painted Autumn. Part of the Painted Harvest suite.

 I am going to give this card to my WHOLE family on the day of our wedding anniversary.
Not just my hubby! Our whole family wouldn't work if we all didn't give and take each and every day and I really want ALL of them to know how much I appreciate having each of them in my life.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Enjoy The Little Things In Life Design Team - Halloween

Image may contain: text

Welcome back crafty people 😊 I am so happy you could join me today.
The Video Blog Hop Design Team are a group of demonstrators from all over the world.
We all get together on the last Wednesday of each month to share with you some wonderful projects and tutorial videos. We hope to inspire you with new ideas and hopefully give you some helpful tips along the way.
Today's theme is - Halloween

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver of Australia. You will find a list for the names of the other DT members.


Have you ever created something and then been inspired by what you created?
Well that was me just recently 😉

 I have been creating some Halloween inspired cards using the Creep it Real stamp set and the Spooky Nights DSP.
Those two card creations eventually led to these little projects pictured below.

BOO

Monster Treat Bags
#KOCreationscards #Creepitreal #Halloween #DIY #Treatbags #Partytreats #Kidsparties #Stampinup #Papercraft

I have two children that are still at the 'trick or treat' age (8 and 7) and both love getting dressed up and knocking on doors while yelling Trick Or Treat! They of course LOVE eating all the lollies too 😆

Each year a few of the parents all walk around as a large group with our little Ghosts, Ghouls, Witches and Monsters (all aged under 10) mainly so they don't harass any one who isn't participating in the Halloween evening. Halloween just isn't a huge deal here in Australia.

So, this year I decided that I would create a treat bag to hand out from our little family to each of the little ghouls etc at the end of our evening excursion.
I really think they will get a kick out of them!





You can see how I made these Little treat bags below.





What did you think?
Don't these fangs look awesome with the lollies poking through!!
