Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop January 2019

Welcome to our Greek Isles Achievers Blog hop for January! We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that have earned the incredible Stampin' Up!® incentive trip that we will be going on this year. We are hopping together to share with you some awesome inspiration using BRAND NEW Stampin' Up!® products.

Today I decided to make my own patterned vellum! Yup - I am in love with the Floral Romance Speciality Designer Series Paper and wanted to make my own patterned vellum.

In my card today I used Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Blends.

I used the incredible Vellum cardstock by Stampin' Up!®. If you haven't purchased this Vellum before - YOU MUST! It is incredible to use and create with. I embossed the vellum with Whisper White and then used my blends to colour in the vellum! How amazing is that? However there are a few tricks that you need to know about so make sure you watch my video.

Would you like the measurement so you can make this card? Sure thing! You can pin these measurements and it will magically include the card so you know what the measurements are for. Pretty cool!

Here is my video showing you exactly how I made this card today. I decided to mix things up and used Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. LOVE! Because we don't have Gorgeous Grape Blends (YET!) I used the Highland Heather Blends for my card.

I love the sentiment from the Wonderful Romance Stamp set - but couldn't find the right framelit to cut it out - my amazing Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. I really like that the framelits for layering like I have done in my card.

I would love to hear what you think of my card today! Do you think you will give this technique a try? It's so much fun!

Thank you so much for coming by and remember to not miss one blog post by visiting all the blog links in the list below. I know that you are going to get so much inspiration and creative ideas from this hop today. Feel free to pin my photos to your pinterest page.

Dot to Dot | Team Swap created by Bruno

Hi Everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Its Bruno here. I wanted to share a swap card I made for a team swap (organised by the AWESOME Nicole Bonar). Here it is....

I used some BRIGHT colours (of course, it was never the plan to use those colours). Here are the colours;

I really love this new embossing folder - it creates such a cool look. Since I made this one, I have some exciting ideas brewing in my head about how I can use it more......

Here is how you can make it;
  1. Cut Thick Whisper White Card Base, portrait, bottom open.
  2. Cut Strips of each of the colours. These can be scraps of card you already have. Stick down to a piece of scrap card stock the size of your card front.
  3. Stamp sentiment. The stamp I used is called 'Stamping your way to the top' and is a demonstrator exclusive stamp set. Want to buy it? Join my team and you are able to buy it now!
  4. Trim colourful card to allow approximately 1cm border all around.
  5. Using 'Dot to Dot' Embossing Folder, run through big shot. Mount this piece to the card base.
  6. Using a piece of scrap whisper white, stamp the large flower piece in Black.
  7. Stamp the mini flower over using Grapefruit Grove.
  8. Cut out Flower using 1 1/2" Circle Punch.
  9. Using Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove card, punch out three small pieces using the punches from the Bitty Blooms Punch.
  10. Add small dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

And, thats it! Can you think of some different variations you could use on this card layout?

Thanks so much once again for stopping by. If you want to buy any of the products used on this project, click on the shopping links below and buy them now.

Climbing Roses Bundle by Bruno Bertucci

I love it when Bruno makes some cards! He is just so talented and just has such a different way of looking at the stamp sets. I adore this new Climbing Roses Bundle - it really is such a beautiful card. Bruno has done some #loveitchopit and used the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper. How amazing is that paper?

I love the colours that Bruno used - the Basic grey with the Calypso Coral is stunning!
