Ideas Blog Hop - July Holiday

Hello Crafty Friends!   

Welcome to another blog hop!   The team has been cooking up some fresh new ideas and tutorials to share for July.

Of course I'm refering to the IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') blog hop!  

Our theme for July is July Holiday and we're focusing on the new and current Sale a Bration brochure; however, we are able to use products from the current catalogs.

I decided to use the very aptly named Amazing Phrasing stamp set and the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper from the Sale a Bration brochure. I love both!

Here's our collage, which is a sneak peak from each designer in this edition of the tutorial bundle.  See it here:




Here's my project contribution for July:

A Fish & a Wish FB Live June 30, 2022



 

This past Thursday, I made the an easy shaker card paired together with 
A Fish & a Wish stamp set/bundle. 
The little "fishies" in this set fill my heart with joy.  Aren't they the cutest?  
And I adore the way the fish turned out. I used a dauber to add more than one 
color blue to the fish. So. Much. Fun.
  
The bundle (158993) comes with the stamp set and a fish builder punch 
to punch out the little fish.




Here's a close up of the sequins. Very nice, huh?  If you don't have these sequins, 
you need them in your stash. They are the For Everything Fancy Sequins (159187) and 
there are three containers with three different color sequins. 




Yummy, right?

The shaker card is easy to duplicate. If you'd like to see me create it, 
you can catch the video replay here:

FB LIVE JUNE 9, 2022 Happiness Abounds Torn effect card




If you have not had the opportunity to see the Happiness Abounds Bundle and the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper, let me introduce you!

  

I used them for a Facebook Live and made a cute "Torn Effect" card.  The technique is so fun, simple, cute and packs a big WOW factor.

 If you have not seen the FaceBook live, you can watch me create it in the video replay above.  

 The Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous and the technique OSS so fun and super easy as long as you have later and glue.

 This is one of my favorite Designer Series Papers and it works wonderfully with this technique. I can’t get enough of either!

  I used Fresh Freesia. Gorgeous Graphics and Night of Navy cardstock, as well as Basic White and the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.

 I hope you enjoy it. If you didn’t get a chance to catch the Facebook Live and the video above doesn’t play, you can see it here:

Blessings of Home Facebook LIve

Did you see last week's Facebook Live? I made a bright and festive card using the Blessings of Home Stamp bundle (157939).  It includes the stamp set and the coordinating die set as well.  It makes cutting the images so simple.

Just like last week, this is another SIP project - Stamps, Inks and Paper!  It's wonderful when you can use the products to create over and over again.  And there is nothing like a little coloring therapy.  The flowers are so bold with plenty of space to color, and the Stampin' Blends make coloring so quick and easy!






I give a few tips during the video about using Stampin' Blends markers and our Painted Texture 3D embossing folder (154317). This is one of my favorite embossing folders because of the artsy look and feel of it.  Trust me, it's FAB!

I used Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends alcohol ink markers.






Another favorite you will see me use is the Scalloped Contours dies (155560). They are so very versatile and add a simple, yet elegant touch to your projects.




This was such a fun card to create. I hope you enjoy it.

Oceanfront Facebook Live card

During this week's Facebook Live, I made a serene and creative card using the Oceanfront stamp set.  I simply love the "scenery" stamp sets created by Stampin' Up. The artistry is  amazing and these stamp sets work so beautifully together!

Another wonderful thing about this stamp set is that it doesn't require a whole lot of embellishing; it's a great example of SIP - Stamps, Inks and Paper - standing alone beautifully.  One of my favorite ways to create.

 



In the live video, I share a technique to create the gradient sunset on the horizon.  I used Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral inks.  I inked the stamp with Crushed Curry, then using a dauber, I added the Calypso Coral to the inked stamp to give dual color with one pass.





Using the Brushed Metal gems, I created little "pebbles" to highlight the green plants.




This was such a fun card to create. I hope you enjoy it.

Bottled Happiness

Did you get a chance to catch last week's Facebook Live?  I shared a cute and stately card using the Bottled Happiness stamp set.  I am loving the Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss and Soft Seafoam together.  




Bottled Happiness is an adorable two step stamp set with the cutest little set of bottles.  The tallest bottle can also be used as a wine bottle or they can both be used as vases.  It even has stamps for the bottle label and a coordinating sentiment.  It was one of my first picks from our new Annual Catalog.

I used Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Soft Seafoam inks to keep the design simple, yet sweet.  I also add Linen Thread and Basic Rhinestone jewels for a little bit of bling.

Here's another Card using the 2 step floral spray in the lovely new In Color - Sweet Sorbet.




Sweet, isn't it?
