I'm a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator who sees the world through the gorgeous SU Colour Palette, who loves to browse through Pinterest and be inspired by pretty pictures and inspire others to create beautiful paper craft projects with the wonderful SU range of colour coordinated products.  I hope you will find these posts a useful reference when searching for a great colour combo.  Feel free to save the graphic to include in your blog post.

Every Sunday night (AEST) I post a new Pinterest inspired colour combo called The Colour Tree; then on the 7th of every month I host a Linky Party (Under the Colour Tree) to feature a round up of the previous month's inspiration. It's not a 'challenge' but a place to share your projects in the gallery.

Have fun creating.  Enjoy your week,

CASology 161 - PLAID

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs.

Today I'm sharing a card that I demoed for a small group of grade 9/10 students. Every Wednesday I take a 'study' group; it consists of a handful of students that have chosen not to do Automotive or Sport's Leaders as one of their electives. I try and mix it up each week and do a variety of activities.  Their English teacher had asked if I could get them to make some Thank You Cards for guest speakers and other visitors etc. He didn't have to 'twist my arm' to get me to bring my favourite hobby into the classroom.

The brief was to keep the cards fairly clean and simple, (CAS) and I provided a limited amount of stamps, punches and ink and a large supply of washi tape (I had a bit of a thing about washi back in 2012 and have quite a collection hoard).

Here's one card that I 'demoed ' -
 
I had the latest CASology Challenge in mind when I chose to use this PLAID fabric washi that was in my stash.

 Here's the finished collection made by some of the students -
An A+ for Molly, Elizabeth, Anna and Georgie!


Thanks for stopping by,

Yay! an honorable mention!  Thanks, Melissa and co. -

A Spec-tacular New Adventure

My niece needed a card for one of the optometrists at her work as she is moving back home to Brisbane.  This was the 'design brief' -
  • I want an extra special card for everyone to write in
  • It needs to be A5 size or a little bigger and say something along the lines of "good luck with your new adventure"
  • As hipster as possible
  • She likes mustard, grey and navy blue tones
Thanks to a great Silhouette Cutting File and some awesome SU stamps, embossing folders and DSP, I think I managed to tick all the boxes; very hipster don't you think?  You can't go wrong with chevrons!

 
 Colour Palette - Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon and Night of Navy
 
To complete the project, a very large envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board - such an awesome tool!

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi there and welcome to the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators who love to show you just how much you can do with one stamp set.

Awesomely Artistic

 

Clear Mount Stamp Set  (139950 - $35.00 AUD)




I have a couple of projects to share with you for this round.  The first card is a flower pot easel card made from the medium sized Envelope Liners Framelits - 


1.  Awesomely Artistic Flower Pot Easel Card

The cluster of flowers image was stamped three times with Tip Top Taupe Ink, coloured in with Stampin' Write Markers and fussy cut.  The dragonfly was stamped with Black Stazon on vellum and Gold Glitter was added to the wings with Crystal Effects.
  
My colour palette is from The Colour Tree.
  
This card is the second in the series of Flower Pot Easel Cards made from the Envelope Liners Framelits.  I shared the first one in the Petite Petals SRC Blog Hop a couple of months ago and have now written tutorials for both, which are available to purchase from My Tutorials For Sale page.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Awesomely Artistic
Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Calypso Coral (Ink and Markers), Black Stazon
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Envelope Liners Framelits, Vellum, Boho Chic Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Pretty Petals DSP Stack, PL Corner Rounder Punch, Gold Glitter, Crystal Effects, Basic Pearls



2.  Window Card with Ornate Tag Topper Closure

My second card is also based on a colour combination from The Colour Tree and you can see from the photos that the 'fold' is a variation of the popular Scallop Tag Topper cards that were doing the rounds last year; except this fold uses the Ornate Tag Topper Punch and has a front 'window'.
 
Project Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Awesomely Artistic
Ink:  Soft Suede, Lost Lagoon, Black Marker
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Ornate Tag Topper Punch, Gold Metallic Doily, Black Stitched Satin Ribbon, PL Corner Rounder Punch, Circle FramelitsDie (no. 4)
I hope you are enjoying the SRC Blog Hop so far. The next three participants are also from Australia and I'm sure they, along with the rest of the international crew, have some amazing inspirational projects to share. This is one of my favourite stamp sets and I can't wait to see what awesomeness lies ahead!
