ESAD 2016-2017 Annual Catalouge Blog Hop

12 Jun 2016

Welcome today we're playing with new products out of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue and we're also hopping with some friends from ESAD (Extra Special Australian and New Zealand Independent Demonstrators)

I'm super excited to be apart of this blog hop and cant wait to hop all the way around 
and see what the other girls have to show us.

I love water colouring and I'm loving the new In colour Flirty Flamingo,
so i started playing around with a water colour background.
 Here is what i created.

First I stamped feathers from the Feather Together stamp set down the page in versamark ink and clear embossed them. I then used Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and So Safron to water coloured over the top, going over and over allowing the colours to blend together lightest to darkest.
Feather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set

I have then added some bokeh technique by adding some craft white Ink spots
 with a sponge dauber and some clear wink of stella
I Love Love Love this look, its so pretty. 

The Happy Birthday is stamped on some Flirty Flamingo card in Craft white ink.
I stamped over the top of each feather to make them pop out and then added some sequins and pearls

I hope you have enjoyed my creations be sure to hop around and see what other new products the girls are using.

Baby Bear Box

2 Jun 2016
Today I'm so excited as the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! annual catalogue is LIVE. It is packed full of so many wonderful new product and I cant wait to share them with you.

Last month I attended On Stage Local in Sydney, it was so inspiring. Its hard to explain how much an event like this does for my creativity, it gets me bouncing with ideas and enthusiasm. One of my most favorite things about Stampin' Up! events are the FREE products we get. I was one of the lucky ones winning this Beautiful Baby Bear stamp set.

Isn't he adorable!!
This beautiful bear is a three step stamp, meaning the colour combinations you can 
experiment with are endless.  

So iv had a bit of a play and here is what i came up with.

A gift box of baby thank you card. 
What a great gift for a new mum!

The colour combo i used for this bear was Crumb Cake stamped off once, straight Crumb Cake for step two and then finally Chocolate Chip. I also added a hint of Soft Sky for a touch of Boy, but you could also do it Blushing Bride for the girls!

Thanks for stopping by
