International Project Highlights using current Stampin' Up!® Products

Welcome to our International Project Highlights using current Stampin' Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs and see a close up of our projects. You can see the gallery below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost.

I used the gorgeous Penned & Painted stamp set for the first time this week, and made 3 different cards with it.

With this one I heat embossed with copper embossing powder the greeting (from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set) and the outline images of the flowers and leaves. I did this on a panel of Shimmery white cardstock, which works well with the watercolouring technique I used.

I used my aqua painter to pick up the ink colours from the lids of the stamp pads, after squeezing the closed ink pads to transfer ink to the insides of the lids. The colours I used are Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach for the flowers, and Emerald Envy for the leaves. I used Daffodil Delight for the flower centres.

Once dried I attached the Shimmery White to a Basic Black mat and then to the Flirty Flamingo card base. A few basic Rhinestones add a bit of bling to finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. We know that you will love our gallery of projects made from Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators around the world!

On another piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the larger butterfly in 3 layers using Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Island Indigo inks and cut the butterfly using the matching framelit die. The body was stamped using Early Espresso ink. The detailed small butterfly and the greeting were die cut out of Bermuda Bay cardstock.

Thoughtful Branches Bundle from Stampin Up!
As soon as I saw this stamp set and thinlits bundle I knew it would become one of my favourites. It's only available for a limited time, so if you want it you need to act now or you'll miss out!

Here is a class I did recently using the bundle:

The bundle includes a gorgeous tree die that cuts beautifully with the Precision Base Plate, and the perfect canopy that can also be a hydrangea. This also cuts beautifully with the Precision Base Plate in the Big Shot die cutting machine.

I stamped the blossom onto Whisper White cardstock using Perfect Plum ink, and then sponged over the top with Wisteria Wonder ink to give the two toned effect. The stem and leaves were cut out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

For this card I created a watercolour wash background on Shimmery White cardstock, and masked off the bottom portion of the card. The sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set.

I've started my Christmas cards early this year, with this one. I've sponged the background, stamped the different trees in Chocolate Chip ink, and stamped the leaves twice on the middle tree to make it fuller and stand out more. The word Peace is cut out of gold foil using one of the Christmas Greetings thinlits, and the rest of the greeting comes from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.

I'm happy with how these cards came out, and have seen lots of other ideas using this stamp set and dies bundle.

If you'd like to purchase any of the supplies used, please go to my online shop.

Happy stamping,
