CTC187 – Blended Season – it’s Christmas with no kids in sight!

 
CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop.
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over the ditch from the amazing Fi Cobbin (aka The Magenta Tiger) – a big WELCOME! 
This week the CTC Crew is CASE-ing projects from the Kids and Babies section of the Catalogue (pages 80-91).
I love the cute elephant card on page 91. 
One of the things I love to do with the images of projects in the catalogue is to make cards for a completely different purpose. So this week – I’ve given this Thank You Card a Christmas Make-over!
I have used the about-to-be-released limited-time bundle – Blended Seasons. You can see all the information in the image below. The Blended Seasons stamp set certainly has several different themes and is a very versatile set.
This set is currently available for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators to purchase until the end of the month. It will be available for everyone for the month of August – but only while supplies last! If you can’t wait till August – you can include this set in your Starter Kit when you join Stampin’ Up! There’s more info at the bottom of the post about joining – and about the 10 FREE ink pads you will receive if you join during July! It really is a fabulous deal!
 
Back to the card – I’ve stamped the holly image in VersaMark onto the Poppy Parade cardbase as a background. I’ve also stamped this image on Whisper White in Black – Momento Tuxedo Black so that I could colour them with two new Blend colours – Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green.  The extra leaf and berry image was coloured the same way onto a scrap piece of paper then fussy cut out. It is popped up on a dimensional. The sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green.
 
I’ve also put a little of the Fine Tip Glue onto the berries to make them shiny. The other berries have pearls on top. 
And can you see that stitching around the cutout shape? The framelits in the Stitched Seasons have stitching – not only around the cut out piece – but also around the opening left behind. Love love love!
 

Don’t forget to check out the home of CASEing the Catty on Facebook. If you’re not a member of the group – just ask to join and we will see you there! And if you wish to – you can join in the fun too!

You have almost a week to create and join in. Just add your photo to the Facebook group before 7pm next Sunday to be included in the challenge.

Design it with Designer Series Paper – Animal Expedition – July Blog Hop

Animal Expedition Gift Bag – with no animals!

Animal Expedition Gift Bag and card

Design it With Designer Series Paper

Welcome to this month’s Design it with Designer Series Paper Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of 11 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Each month we will be featuring a different paper and our Designer Series Paper (DSP) for July is Animal Expedition. The paper features animals on one side and geometric patterns on the reverse side – making it really versatile.

Animal Expedition DSP

This DSP one of the papers that are part of a special “Buy 3 – Get 1 Free” promotion running throughout July. You can read about that towards the bottom of the post – but first let’s take a look at my project,

Animal Expedition Gift Bag and Card

I’ve created a gift bag with a matching gift card and envelope.

Here’s a closer view of the gift bag. 

Animal Expedition Gift Bag

And a side view too.

Animal Expedition Gift Bag

The bag is a Stampin’ Up! Gusseted Cellophane Bag – 7.6cm x 15.2cm and food safe! I’ve added a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to give the bag a more rigid shape (see below for the scoring dimensions). There’s DSP attached to the largest section of the cardstock which sits at the back of the bag. There’s also a coordinating strip of DSP adhered to the fold-over flap on the outside of the bag.

The bag is held shut with a Mini Binder Clip (Blueberry Bushel) which has some ribbon attached for decoration. I picked colours that are in the DSP – Lemon Lime Twist and Blueberry Bushel Ruffle Ribbon, Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine. You can see the paper, mini binder clip, and ribbon in this close-up.

Animal Expedition Gift BagA gift bag just isn’t complete without a gift card so I made a matching 3″x3″ card and envelope.

The gift card does have both of the DSP patterns on it that were used on the bag. The front of the card is covered in the patterned Lemon Lime Twist DSP and the shape on the front, and inside is cut from the pattern which is predominately Berry Burst. To get the shape on the front of the card I used the Botanical Tags Thinlits.

Botanical Tags Thinlits

These were also used on the cardstock that provides the backbone of the gift bag. I cut the shape out three times on one end to make the delicate pattern at the front of the gift bag.

The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board. I started with a 4 1/2″ square of DSP and did my first punch at 2 1/4″.  I love how the Envelope Punch Board means you can make coordinating envelopes of any size with our gorgeous DSP! I’ve used a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Ruffle Ribbon and a piece of Siver and Pool Party Baker’s Twine to secure the envelope shut.

Here is a template of the measurements I used for scoring the cardstock that goes inside the bag.

I started with a 7.5cm x 26cm piece and scored at 3cm, 15.5cm and 20.5cm. This is equivalent to a 2 7/8″ x 10 1/4″ piece, scored at 1 3/16″, 6 1/8″ and 8 1/16″.

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has made using the Garden Impressions DSP. Isn’t that a global collection of demos! Make sure to visit everyone to see all the fun things you can do with this paper.

Colour INKspiration #37 – Bright Dreams!

Featuring bright colours, new embossing mats, 3 colouring techniques and more!

Colour INKspiration Challenge

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 37 where this week we are featuring another of the new Colour Collections launched in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue – the Brights Collection.

What a gorgeous collection of colours – they make me smile just by looking at them!

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and if you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Nikki Spencer. What a beautiful card – I love how the images and framelits from different sets go so perfectly together. Awesome!

I’ve gone with three really bright brights for my project and paired them with the Follow Your Dreams Bundle.

The card base is Mango Melody, the mat and word cutout is Gorgeous Grape, and the dream-catcher cutout is Granny Apple Green. I think these three colours work really well together.

The card base has been run through the Big Shot with the Subtles Dynamic Texture Embossing Folder. You can’t see that in the photo above – but here is a closeup that lets you get an idea of the beautiful detail you get with the embossing folder. It is really easy to overlook in the catalogue as the pattern is too subtle to show up in print!

I’ve also added texture to the corner of the Gorgeous Grape mat using one of the cutting dies from the Chase Your Dreams framelits – the circular one with a “crosshatch” pattern. But rather than cutting it out with the standard cutting plates I’ve used the Big Shot Embossing Mats to emboss a pattern.

Here’s the official video from Stampin’ Up! about the mats.

I’m in love with these! A tool that lets you get a whole lots more use out of your dies – that’s got to be a winner! You can order the mats online HERE or     contact me on jackie@creativejax.co.nz

The card is one we’ve done in Technique Class this week and it featured three different colouring techniques.

  1. The stamped dream-catcher image was made using the “Rock’n’Roll” technique. The stamp is inked first in Mango Melody, then rolled it in Gorgeous Grape so there was some of the darker colour around the edges.
  2. The feathers were stamped using the “Thumping” technique. Again the stamp is first inked up in Mango Melody and then the brush end of the Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Write Marker is used to “thump” – or tap – some darker colour onto the stamp randomly.
  3. The Basic Pearl that is in the middle of the cutout dream-catcher was coloured using the Granny Apple Green Dark Blend. I’m super pleased we have more Blend colours to choose from – 11 new colours in fact – each in dark and light. You can see all the Blends HERE 

You can see all these colouring techniques more clearly in the closeup below.

Everyone has had fun trying out the Rock’n’Roll Technique and using the Embossing Mats at class this week. They also liked the Detailed Trio Punch used to get the rounded corners.

All the products I used while making the card are included in the table at the end of the post. There are links that will take you to my Online Shop. And if you spend $50 or more on products with me this month you will recieve the July All Stars Tutorial Bundle free. 

 

A reminder that if you are not part of the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group please do join the group. It’s a place where crafters from throughout the world can share their creativity all inspired by a Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch. I’d love to see your creations using three (3) colours from the Brights Collection.

Brusho Embossed Vellum Lantern – All Star Tutorial Bundle July Blog Hop

Brusho Crystal Colour meets Clear Embossing Powder!

 

 

Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team blog hop! It’s hard to believe that it has been six months since I joined the Design Team – time sure does fly when you are having fun!
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring current products from Stampin’ Up! We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

All Star Tutorial Bundle  

 
Our Design team and guest designer – Lori Mueller – have created a ‘super bundle’ of 13 tutorials.
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, a mini album, 12×12 scrapbook page and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects you don’t want to miss out on. Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
 
July Bundle Sneak Peeks
 
The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
 
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20, or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
For our Blog hop to celebrate the release of the March Bundle, we will be showcasing a project using some of the same products or techniques that we used in our tutorial.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
 
I’ve used an exciting new technique in my Tutorial Bundle project and in my Blog Hop Project – Heat Embossed Brusho Colour Crystals!
I’ve not seen this technique used anywhere else, so you may just be seeing it here first!
This is a little Sneak peek of my tutorial project which contains all the details on how to combine heat embossing with the vibrant Brusho Colour Crystals.
For our Blog Hop I’ve made a Vellum Lantern using the Window Box Thinlits as my base and top.
Vellum Lantern with Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
The top and bottom hexagon “boxes” are made in Blueberry Bushel and the bottom is sealed shut, but the lid at the hexagon-shaped top opens.
Vellum Lantern with Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
 
The ribbon around the base is Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and I’ve tied Pineapple Punch 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the top.
These colours were chosen to coordinate with the embossed Yellow and Brilliant Blue Brusho colours I used in the image. (You can find all the products I used for the project if you scroll to the bottom of the post.)
Here’s the back view:Vellum Lantern with Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
I originally had three of the Botanical Tags cut out around the base but the lantern looked way too “busy”. So I settled on one at the back against the Pineapple Punch panel. This panel allowed me to join the Vellum without it being seen and also gave the lantern extra stability.
 
The photos above don’t really show that the images are the Brusho Crystal Colours heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. This is what the Vellum looked like before constructing the lantern.
Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
You can see I scored the Vellum and spaced the scorelines so I had a crease at each of the edges of the hexagon. You can see the score lines and the embossing a little more clearly below.
 
Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
And if you zoom in a little closer you can see the speckled look of the Brusho Crystals in the Clear Embossing Powder. As the clear powder melts with the heat, the crystals partially dissolve. This results in the yellow and blue mixing in places to be green – as well as leaving some individual crystals visible. 
Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
And if you zoom in a little closer you can see such cool patterns!
Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
Of course, a lantern needs light, and a battery tea light can be added from the top.
Vellum Lantern with Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
And here it is all aglow!

I was super pleased with the way this all came together and how the final project showcases my new technique really well!

Design it with Designer Series Paper! A brand new International Design Team!

Design it With Designer Series Paper

I’m super excited to be part of a brand new International Design Team! We are delighted to be introducing our Design it with Designer Series Paper Blog Hop. Today is our first ever Blog Hop – so glad you called in!

Our Design Team is made up of 11 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Each month we will be featuring a different paper and we are kicking off with the Garden Impressions 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper for our first Hop!

Without further ado – here is my first Design it with Designer Series Paper Project – well I guess it is “projects” as there are two!

Not cards – but mini albums. These can be used as a mini photo album, or a journal, or a card with lots of space for messages or an inspirational piece when filled with positive sentiments. 

I’ve made a one to give as a gift to a friend that features the floral papers, and one for a baby album that features the abstract designs.

All Stampin’ Up!s Designer Series Papers are Acid and Lignin Free – so they for great for Memory Keeping. I have previously made some these gorgeous mini albums with now-retired DSP and was keen to see how they’d look with the Garden Impressions DSP.  These Mini Albums fold flat when closed and are secured shut with ribbon. When opened, the ribbon can be tied to hold the album completely open, or it can be left untied and the album keeps some of the triangular shapes.

 

The paper in this set is very different on each side – there are 12 floral patterns on one side and twelve abstract designs on the reverse. Hence the two albums – I wanted to show how different the paper is depending on which side you use. So very versatile!Garden Impressions

There is quite a large range of colours in the papers – Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Petal Pink, Powder Pink, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron, Whisper White. I’ve used several of these as mats in the albums.

You can see all the gorgeous patterns more clearly in this short video from Stampin’ Up! 

 

I wanted to see what a mini album looked with the floral patterns compared to the abstract patterns, so choose to use a different DSP in each of the four sections of the mini albums. The two albums use the same four DSPs – they are just reversed. 

The albums are partly open in the top image, while the bottom images show the underside of the album.

The images in the photo below show the albums fully opened with ribbons tied to keep them open. I love how you can see all the DSP.

In the floral mini album, I have also used another product from the Garden Impressions Suite which the DSP is part of – the Springtime Impressions Thinlit Dies. You can see an image of the dies in the table below. I used the small flower dies on each of the inside sections and cut a piece from the large die for the front of my album. Here’s one of the die cutouts on the inside of the album.

The ribbon on the floral album is also from the Product Suite and comes as a combo of Metallic Shaded Spruce and Petal Pink ribbon. The Darling Label Punch was used to make the banner for the diecut and also the sentiment which is from Baby Elephant. 

The Darling Label Punch comes as part of a special punch box – the Darling Label Punch Box which contains the punch, a stamp set, and two inkspots. These items are all presented in a stunning tin.

The same punch was used on the front of the baby-themed mini album. For this album, I cut a strip and only punched out the shape of each corner. Again the sentiment is from the Little Elephant stamp set  – as is the elephant which has been punch out with the coordinating punch. The stamp and punch are available to purchase as a bundle – which of course saves you 10%

I love the little ears – these are from the punch as well and I’ve only adhered the edge so that they poke up and look like flappy ears! 

The ribbon used to secure the album closed is the Ruffled Ribbon – in Powder Pink. This ribbon is available in the 2017-2019 InColors. Other elements on the front of the baby album are a circle of DSP and a small piece of Powder Pink Mini Ruffled Ribbon – both attached to a Mango Melody front panel which has been run through the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder. It’s a bit hard to tell in the photo – but that baby elephant has a sparkly coat of Wink of Stella.

If you’d like to see how to make one of these little cuties – I did a Facebook Live Tutorial – you can check it out at this link

https://business.facebook.com/creativeJax/videos/893710120811649/

 

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has made using the Garden Impressions DSP. Isn’t that a global collection of demos! Make sure to visit everyone to see all the fun things you can do with this paper.

As Designer Series Papers are our focus – I’ll take a moment to remind you that I do a range of Shares when a new Catalogue comes out – and a DSP Share is one.

Sign up for my DSP Share closes on 25th June.

The cost is $74.50 (collected) or $83.50 posted. Each share is made up of 120 pieces of 6×6″ DSP and 2 sheets of 12×12″ DSP (I just couldn’t cut the Beautifully Details Laser-Cut Specialty DSP! That’s at least one piece of every DSP in the new catalogue – excluding the Colour Collection packs.

As part of the share you will receive – for FREE – 0 Sheets of the 2017-2019 InColor DSP.

Email me (jackie@creativejax.co.nz) to book into the share or ask any questions about my shares.

Colour INKspiration – Neutrals Collection – Shades of Grey!

Three shades of grey, two stamp sets and a pair of scissors teamed up for this versatile park bench card!

Colour INKspiration Challenge

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 35.

With the launch of the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, Stampin’ Up! ® has just had a major colour revamp – 16 new colours -10 brand new and 6 returning favourites).

So, to start off the new catalogue year here at Colour INKspiration, we’ve decided to feature a Colour Collection for the first challenge each month (2nd Wednesday) until we have showcased them all! The second challenge in the month (4th Wednesday) will be a Pinterest inspired pic as per usual just to mix it up a bit.

This month we are starting off with the NEUTRALS COLLECTION and you can choose any 3 colours from that range for your challenge project. We are also changing the rules about what else you can add to the mix; essentially just the Basics – Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black as well as metallics.

You can see all the Neutral Collection products HERE

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and it is great to have Erin Gunsen join us as a guest designer. 

If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Kim Badelt – WOW what a beauty of a project – lots of wonderful details!

My project uses the three shades of grey that are in the Neutrals Collection. From lightest to darkest they are – Smoky Slate, Gray Granite and Basic Gray. The only other colour is the Whisper White cardstock. There are also two stamps sets – Words and Sitting Pretty

The card base is Gray Granite. I’m loving this brand new colour. While gray, it has a slight browny tone which gives it more warmth than the cooler Smoky Slate.

The two narrow mats are in Basic Gray to give contrast between the Gray Granite and Whisper White. The chair is stamped in Basic Gray onto Whisper White and cut out using the framelits from the Sitting Pretty Bundle. I’ve coloured the heart with the light and dark Smoky Slate Blends

Sitting Pretty Bundle

 

I’ve only used the chair and one of the sentiments, but there are lots of images in the stamp set – including some two-step stamping ones. The video below demonstrates lots of the other stamps in the set – the framelits too!

 

As I said – I used one of the sentiments – well I actually only used the “Sitting… thinking…” part of the sentiment.  Often I will use my Stampin’ Write Markers to add ink to just the part of a stamp set I want to stamp. Sometimes though, I know it’s really unlikely that I will use a sentiment as it is made. When that happens well, then I get a bit more radical!

Yup – I cut the stamp with my Paper Snips!!!

Here they are on a block so you can read them.

I’m sure I will get more use out this stamp now that it is two stamps! I can always put them back together, or align them if I want them both.

Here’s a closer view of the partial sentiment which was also stamped in Basic Gray.

In the background is the other stamp set I used in this project – Handwritten.

Handwritten

This was one of the first stamps on my wish list of items “needed” from the new catalogue – I think it may appear in my projects frequently!

The images are stamped in Smoky Slate and while this is the lightest of the grey shades, it was still too dark for what I wanted – a very pale background image – a bit like a watermark. So I “stamped off” twice before stamping on the whisper white.  That means I inked up my stamp, then I stamped it once, then stamped again with re-inking, and stamped a third time without re-inking. 

The darkest image is a “1st generation” image, the middle one is a “2nd generation” image and the palest is a “3rd generation” image. In other words – I stamped off twice before using the third image for my background. Stamping off can be used in lots of ways – this time it was used simply to get a paler image.

I also did the same for the inside of my card. As the image is so pale my writing will still be able to be read.

A reminder that if you are not part of the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group please do join the group. It’s a place where crafters from throughout the world can share their creativity all inspired by Colour Swatch generated from a photo!.

CTC181 It’s a new catalogue – and lots of new colours!

2018-2020 InColors meet Apron of Love
 
CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop.
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from the amazing Simone Bartrum – a big WELCOME! 
This week the new 2018/2019 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue was released so of course CTC Crew is CASE-ing projects from that – any project we like!
 
One of the things I really look forward to when we get a new catalogue is to see what the new InColors are. I wasn’t disappointed with the bright combination of the 2018-2020 InColors. I’m pleased we will have them for two years!
When I saw this card made using the returning Apron of Love set on the bottom of page 61, I knew it would be fabulous to CASE with the new colours.
I wanted to incorporate some products from the Share What You Love Suite (pages 176 – 178) along with the colour makeover I had in mind.
First up Lovely Lipstick.2018-2020 InColor - Lovely Lipstick
I’ve replaced the white stamped mat behind the apron in the original, with a torn vellum mat embossed with the Lovely Floral Textured Embossing Folder. Some extra items were added to the pocket, and the heart embellishment replaced with a hashtag sentiment from the stamp set Make a Difference.
 
Next up Grapefruit Grove:2018-2020 InColor - Grapefruit Grove
Next – the brightest of the bright colours – Pineapple Punch:2018-2020 InColor - Pineapple Punch
The fourth 2018-2020 InColor is Call me Clover:
2018-2020 InColor - Call Me Clover
 
Last – but definitely not least – is Blueberry Bushel:
2018-2020 InColor - Blueberry Bushel
And the “Love What You Do” sentiment from the set of the same name is perfect!
Here they are all lined up in a row!
2018-2020 InColorsThe Share What You Love Suite has been released to celebrate Stampin’ Up!s 30th Anniversary. 
I made these cards for two swaps I was part of recently – one with the Creative Inkers’ Team Swap here in New Zealand, and one with my friend Amy Combs’ team when I attended her team training day in Los Angeles last month.
I was so very lucky to spend a fun, busy and very inspirational afternoon and evening with her friendly team!
Belle loved meeting new people too!
Amy and Team

All Star Tutorial Bundle June Blog Hop – New Catalogue – You are Wonderful!

Rooted in Nature meets a wonderful new fancy fold!

 
 
Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team blog hop!
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring products from the Occasions Catalogue and we have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you!

All Star Tutorial Bundle  

 
Our Design team has created a ‘super bundle’ of 13 tutorials using products from the Annual Catalogue and it’s a super bundle again as we have a guest designer in addition to our regular design team of 12. It is exciting to have the lovely Kirsten Aitchison join us for June.
 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects you don’t want to miss out on. Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
 
 
 
 
The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
 
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
For our Blog hop to celebrate the release of the May Bundle, we will be showcasing a project using some of the same products or techniques that we used in our tutorial.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial,
as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
 
Last month I was in Los Angeles on holiday with our daughter to celebrate the handing in of her completed Masters Thesis. We thoroughly enjoyed our theme park holiday! I was also lucky enough to spend a day with my dear friend Amy Combs and some of her friendly team of demonstrators – The Udderly INKredible Design Team. I attended an amazing Team Training day and I was very taken with the style of one of the cards we made. I’m not sure if the fold has a particular name – but here is the card we made on the day.
 
I was taken with how only part of the card opened and used this fold for my tutorial in the June All Star Tutorial Bundle and in my blog hop  today. Both showcase new products from the newly released 2018/2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue but from different product suites. Using different stamp sets and Designer Series Papers as well as changing the techniques used in the layers means the two cards look very different. I love a fold that is versatile – and this one sure is!.  
 
For the Blog Hop today I’ve used the products from a stunning new Suite – Nature’s Poem Suite. You can find it on pages 142 – 144 of the 2018 catalogue.
The suite’s stamp set contains a beautiful collection of tree, wood and leaf images along with several versatile sentiments. All but one of the images also has a coordinating framelit. For the front of my card, I’ve stamped one of the leaf images on Petal Pink cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink and cut it out with its matching framelit – so easy!
 
There are two patterns of DSP in this version of the card – one on the Blackberry Bliss card base, and one on the Petal Pink folded component. The “circular” pattern on the front DSP is an image of a tree trunk. While you can’t see the detail of the image when it;s stamped onto the DSP as I have done – trust me –  it is incredible – you can even see the rings of the tree trunk! That image was stamped in one of the new 2018-2020 InColors – Grapefruit Grove. 
 
 
With 5 new InColors, 6 returning colours and 10 other new colours in the Stampin’ Up! colour palette  – I am having such fun choosing which colours to use.
Today’s card features a new InColor (Grapefruit Grove), a returning colour (Blackberry Bliss) and a brand new colour added to the Subtles Collection (Petal Pink). The Nature’s Poem Suite also includes Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Tranquil Tide, Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede – a beautiful colour combination.
 
It’s a bit hard to see how the fold works in the image above but you can on these two.
Did you notice the twine on the card? It’s also in the Nature’s Poem Suite and comes in a set of 4 colours – Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede. You can see them below.
 
The twine is a thick baker’s twine. It is made up of three groups of three threads.  I’ve untwisted a length of Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove, and used one of the three triple strands from each colour on my card. you can see the remaining two groups of triple threads above the card in the photo. Splitting threads and ribbon means you get even more options and different textures.
 
As a bonus – here is another card made with other products from the Nature’s Poem Suite. The folded part on this card is slightly narrower than the one above and there is another of the images from the Rooted in Nature stamp set cut out with its coordinating framelit!
 
As you can see – this fold has become a favourite! I give a step-by-step guide to making this style of fold in my June All Star Tutorial.
Here’s a little Sneak peek of my tutorial project.

All Star Tutorial Bundle – May Blog Hop – Share What You Love

 
 Share What You Love Doilies meet vellum.
 
Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team blog hop!
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring products from the Occasions Catalogue and we have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you!

All Star Tutorial Bundle  

 
Our Design team has created a ‘super bundle’ of 13 tutorials using products from the Occasions Catalogue and it’s a super bundle again as we have a guest designer in addition to our regular design team of 12. It is exciting to have the talented Sandra Mastello join us in May.
 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects you don’t want to miss out on. Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
 
 
The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
 
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
For our Blog hop to celebrate the release of the May Bundle, we will be showcasing a project using some of the same products or techniques that we used in our tutorial.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial,
as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
 
Both my tutorial and blog hop projects use Vellum in a book fold card along with items from the Early Released suite – Share What You Love. This suite of products Is available to purchase during May as part of limited time bundles before the 2018 Annual Catalogue goes live on 1st June. 
 
I’ve included information about the three (3) bundles towards the end of my post – including how you can attend a CreativeJax class making three projects using the Share What You Love Bundle and earn extra FREE goodies from me!
 
My May All Stars Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop project puts the gorgeous doilies from the suite in the spotlight!
 It’s hard to see in the photographs, but these doilies have a pearlized finish on one side. The other side is a white matt finish.
The doilie on the front of the card adheres to the vellum layer with Liquid Multipurpose Glue. I sponged the glue onto the back of the doilie on with a piece of sponge. Here’s a closer look at just the outside vellum layer.
The spotty paper on the left side is from the Share What you Love Designer Series Paper (DSP), while the Bakers Twine and self-sticking rose embellishment are both from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.
The sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set, and has been heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I’m super pleased to see this product returning in the new catalogue as I have almost used all of my stash which I got before it retired!
When you open the first layer of the book card you can see more doilies!
There is a coloured doilie on the back of the Vellum. This has been stuck to line up with the outside doilie and is coloured Grapefruit Grove. The facing page of the book card doesn’t have an actual doilie – rather it is the negative space left by a doilie. This piece of cardstock is Whisper White cardstock which has been sponge brayered with Grapefruit Grove.
The doilie was temporarily stuck onto the white cardstock to act as a stencil, and then the Grapefruit Grove was brayered over to cover the entire piece of cardstock. The doilie was then removed to leave the white pattern underneath.
When the middle page is opened, the Whisper White inner is found with some more patterns made using the doilie stencil.
This time I used a sponge dauber to apply the ink.
If you use the pearlised side facing up when sponging or brayering, then very little color stays on the doilie. If you turn it over and use the mat surface as the stencil, that side will retain the colour. That was how I got the Grapefruit Grove doilie which I adhered inside, on the Vellum.
 
I loved how this card turned out – and while it is the same style – I love how different it is from the card I made for the Tutorial Bundle. Some of that is due to the different suite products I used in each of the projects – including which DSP I used.
You can see how varied the DSP is in the photo below. There’s something to suit everyone and every project!
 
I give a step-by-step guide to making this style of book-fold card in the May All Star Tutorial Bundle.
Here’s a little Sneak peek of my tutorial project.

Our Design team has created a ‘super bundle’ of 13 tutorials using products from the Occasions Catalogue and it’s a super bundle again as we have a guest designer in addition to our regular design team of 12. It is exciting to have the talented Linda Dalke join us in April.
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects you don’t want to miss out on. Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
 
 
The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
 
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
For our Blog hop to celebrate the release of the April Bundle, we will be showcasing a project using some of the same products or techniques that we used in our tutorial.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial,
as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
 
Both my tutorial and blog hop projects are monochromatic and feature shimmery Embossing paste that has been coloured to coordinate with the vanilla tones of the projects.
My Blog Hop project is  layout of my siblings and I when I was a baby. There were only four of us then, but we lucky to have one more addition to the family – a younger sister – a few years later.
 
Here are some closeups of the layout showing the embossing paste which was added using a decorative mask and some of the other embellishments.
 
 
I also included some stamping in crumb cake 
 
 
It was fun making the page and looking back through the old photos. I’m sure you will enjoy looking through the projects in our Blog Hop too!
 
Here’s a little Sneak peek of my tutorial project which also used blends.
