Stamp Review Crew...Window Shopping!

 Stamp Review Crew


Welcome to a brand new hop over at Stamp Review Crew  For this one we are showcasing the lovely Window Shopping set. This set coordinates with the cutest Hexagon shaped box and the detailed thinlits to match.
Did you just arrive from the talented Ann Schach and her lovely Window Shopping creation? You can continue along the hop loop by clicking the "Next" banner below or click the Stamp Review Crew banner up top to be redirected to the start.

I really wanted to focus on the cute stamp images in this set, so using Emerald Envy and one of the larger images, l used repetitive stamping to create my own dsp.
To create the cute sparkly cupcake, l hand cut the base and punched the treetop/cloud from the Tree builder punch and coated it with the new Embossing paste and of course no cupcake is complete without sprinkles.


Now you are off to be inspired by the lovely Twila Davis and her fab project!

Just Add Ink #373...Stencils!




It's time for another fun challenge over at Just Add Ink  and this week Karren has challenged us to use "Stencils" on our projects...Fun!
So as l had yet to open my "Pattern Party Decorative Masks" this challenge was perfect!

I was tempted to use the embossing paste, but decided that Versamark and clear embossing powder suited the project l had in mind better.
To apply the Versamark ink l used a sponge dauber direct to the inkpad and went over the design a couple of times making sure it was nice and wet and then gave it a liberal coating of the clear embossing powder.
For some pretty detail l added some fussy cut flowers from the "Whole lot of Lovely" dsp and some leaves using the retired Bird Builder punch in Pear pizzazz and Gold Glimmer. The greeting is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

Just Add Ink #372...Colour!



Not sure where that week went, but its Friday again and that means a brand new challenge over at Just Add Ink.
This week we have one of my fave colour combinations to play with and wouldn't you know it, l drew a blank..:0( As l usually do when the creative mind goes walkabout l stick to a clean and simple style.

My project this week combines Dragonfly Dreams, Happiest of Days and the lovely marbled background stamp. Lots of  clear Wink of Stella on the bloom/leaves and Dragonfly body...It shows up a little clearer in the second pic.

Just Add Ink #371...Choose two!




Happy Friday friends! 

Over at Just Add Ink  this week Di has challenged us to choose two of the elements above on our projects. I have opted for "Kids & Patterned Paper" using "The Little One" stamp set and some retired Blushing Bride dsp.
The colours are a combination of Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Smoky slate & Whisper white. I really enjoyed creating with this set, as l find the small details and images are super cute to fussy cut and the little triangle, crosses and dash stamps are perfect for adding the extra details to a project.

Colour INKspiration #14

 Colour INKspiration



Hey there! It's time for a brand new Colour INKspiration challenge.   

Colour INKspiration Crew consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
There’s also a Facebook group for Stampin' Up! ® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.
Here’s the deal - 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 blog hop. 
Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration 'Challenge' by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to.
Make sure you click on the Colour Inkspiration banner above and ask to join Colour INKspiration, add the group to your favourites and share it with your crafty friends so they can join in with the challenges too.

I had some inky fun with this group of colours and created a universe/galaxy effect for a fun birthday card.
Using Watercolour paper and the above inkpads, l used a sponge to randomly apply them. Once l was happy with those, l flicked some water over the whole thing to create some speckled light patches and also used some watered down white craft ink to splatter.
Once it was all dry l added lots of fine Dazzling detail spots to add a glittery effect.



If you are following the hop you would have arrived here from the lovely Rachel Palmieri and her super cute project.  Next on the hop is the talented and lovely Liz Gross.
