Just Us Girls Spring Challenge #577

I have seen this challenge page but never made anything for it.
The theme is Spring (however here in Australia it is Autumn)

I purchased this gorgeous set but hadn't used it yet and it is nearing the end of the catalogue that it is featured in so I pulled it out and made this gorgeous flower birthday card.

I really love how there are three dies for the gorgeous flowers and I could use 3 different shades of colours to get depth in them.

This card was mostly made with dies. 

  • Stamps: Brushed Blooms
  • Ink:  Memento Black
  • Card: Basic White, Basic Black, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive
  • Tools: Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine 
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals & Matt Black Dots

Colour INKspiration 96 #CI96


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 2300 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.

I am really sorry that haven't created much over the last two months as I have gone back to study at TAFE and it is taking up ALOT of my precious crafting time! 
I am a bit sad as last fortnights colours are some of my favourites! 
Nevermind here is a great swatch to work with for this fortnight!

How gorgeous are these colours? 

I did use a little of the Melon Mambo can you see it?

I added the Melon Mambo around the edge of the Flirty Flamingo stamped image and it is super subtle.
The gold foil leafing is such a great addition to make a card look really elegant and to finish off with a pop of the Blushing Bride Ribbon with the Gold Gem on top of it just adds a bit of texture to the card.
Tear and tape is another great way to add the Gold Foil Leafing to a card along with the heat and stick powder (used exactly like embossing powder)

I can't wait to see what you come up with! 
Remember to upload your cards to our facebook group here!

  • Stamps: Art Gallery
  • Ink: Versamark, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo
  • Card: Basic White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride,  Fine Art Floral DSP and Love You Always Foil Sheets

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.
