The Dimensionals - The Ocean

 


Welcome to my blog and to The Dimensionals tutorials and our second year producing great 3D tutorials for you

We’re a group of Stamping Friends who offer 3D Paper Craft Tutorials on the 1st day of every month
I am so super excited to be a part of a group of such talented ladies and I pinch myself on how I got here.......

The theme for this month is The Ocean! 


This is my
Bay Window Underwater Observatory Card





I thought about this one long and very hard...... I am born and bred in a place in the South West of Western Australia called Busselton.
Busselton is home to the longest timber- piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. 
In 2003 the Underwater Observatory was opened so this is what I based my card on.



Here is an actual picture of the Underwater Observatory.

The Dimensionals - Love Is In The Air

 


Welcome to my blog and to The Dimensionals tutorials and our second year producing great 3D tutorials for you

We’re a group of Stamping Friends who offer 3D Paper Craft Tutorials on the 1st day of every month
I am so super excited to be a part of a group of such talented ladies and I pinch myself on how I got here.......

The theme for this month is Love is in the Air! 
I was lucky that my prize patrol for Onstage last year was the gorgeous Always in My Heart Stampset, so the first opportunity to purchase the dies, I did!

This is my
Love Swing Step Card


Such a pretty die set and it looks great on the front of a card.


With the added Hearts from the Stitched Be Mine Dies it finishes off this card so nicely.

Now if you go to check out Bronwyn's  chokky holders they are pretty cute!

Stamping Pals Challenge 12 - Favourite Technique

  



I was lucky to be the winner of Challenge 10 and asked to be guest designer for Stamping Pals Challenge 12.

The theme this month is Favourite Technique.


My favourite technique is actually using a die cut to mask a background. 
Here I used Highland Heather, Seaside Spray and Night of Navy for the background and added the colour using the new blending brushes.

After peeling off the die cut you are left with the white lined image for one card and the die cut also has colour so you can use it up on another card... Its a bit of a two for one and super effective.



I love this technique as it is easy to do and it great for any type of stamper from beginner to avid!

You don't need to add too much to the background as it is pretty enough.

What technique are you going to use for this challenge?

  • Stamps: Simply Succulents
  • Ink: Versamark, Highland Heather, Seaside Spray, Night of Navy and Memento
  • Card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Vellum
  • Tools: Potted Succulents, Layering Circle and Stitched So Sweetly Dies with a Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine, White embossing powder and a heat tool, Mint Macaron, Just Jade and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals & Matte Black Dots

Colour INKspiration 92 #CI92

  


Welcome to Colour Inkspiration!

What is Colour INKspiraton? – a Facebook based bi-monthly colour challenge.
Anyone with Facebook can join in.  You don’t need a blog and you don’t need to be a demonstrator.
I have joined in these challenges and love them as Colour challenges for me are actually a real challenge.
 Click here to join the Facebook page which now has over 2200 members and see what it’s all about.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –
The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a post on their blogs.
Then you have a 12 day period to upload your own creations using the colours provided.
If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.




This colour combo will run for 4 weeks.



I ran into the craft room and grabbed a set I have had a little play with already but thought it was perfect for this colour combo....

Just stamp off the base of the flowers and use the darker ink for the inside of the flowers and the third stamp (the centre of the flower) is stamped with Merry Merlot on the Magenta Flower and Calypso Coral on the Daffodil Delight Flowers.

  • Stamps: All Things Fabulous
  • Ink: Versamark, Garden Green, Magenta Madness, Merry Merlot, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral
  • Card: Basic White, Basic Black, True Love Designer Series Paper
  • Tools: Fabulous Florals Dies and Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder with a Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Embellishments: - Dimensionals, Matt Black Dots

Social Stamping "Oh 2020"

 


Hello and welcome to the monthly Social Stamping Hop.

My friend Kelly Kent is the mastermind behind this and she put the group together to share our creations in a time where we were all social distancing and many were in isolation. It was very unnerving time for a lot of people as some have medical issues and loved ones who were compromised and can not afford to get ill. Creating is my sanity as I am a pretty social person and these past few months were a little bit of a struggle.

Life in 2020 has been a "Challenge" for our family. I had taken the last two hops off to have some time to grieve the loss of my beautiful mum. Yes, so I can not wait to see the back of 2020.

You have come from Kelly herself

So here is the next monthly theme that Kelly has set for us and it is "Oh 2020"

I was a little stumped on what I was going to do for this hop but I had actually started to scrapbook a couple of pages of mum using some new product from the Jan-June Mini that I just had to use them for this hop..... I bawled my eyes out the whole time making these pages..
The photo to the left is the last photo she had taken, she was gone 1 1/2 weeks later.




Her last wishes were to have Hydrangeas at her funeral... Well you can now understand the sadness when I opened the new Mini for next year to find a whole suite of them..... (but happy they were in there) I miss her so, so much, so if your mum is still around squeeze her ever so tightly and always tell her that you love her!


  • Stamps: -
  • Ink: -
  • Card: Highland Heather, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Old Olive, Purple Posy and Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper
  • Tools: Hydrangea Dies with a Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals
