Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Teneale Williams | Four Feathers and Gorgeous Grundge

I am totally in LOVE with the Four Feathers stamp set

from the Holiday Catalogue I mean in LOVE!

If you are on Pinterest {follow me} you will see

so many fabulous creations featuring feathers.

They lend themselves to simple and clean designs,

in this case I have limited my colour palette

and increased the “white space” on the card front.

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Teneale Williams | Four Feathers and Gorgeous Grunge

I have stamped down the ink splatter images from

Gorgeous grunge in Soft Sky and Pistachio Pudding.

I have stamped the feathers in VersaMark then

heat embossed them white in on vellum.

The vellum had created a softness to the feather

I wish my photography was better to show

the beauty of this simple card.

Teneale Williams | Stampin' Up! Halloween gift idea


Its a little scary….

No, not the monsters!

Its September, ALREADY…..

What happened to 2014!

I had such big plans for the year

including having a Halloween party

 Halloween is not too popular in Australia

but my sister is a big fan and my Canadian friend

Heather was living in Australia for the year.

The 3 of us thought we would have a big Halloween

party but I looked at my calender and I don’t see

me fitting one in this year.

Even without having a big party I like to

give my 2 nieces a little Halloween treat

and I have this card design on my mind for months

since again my friend Heather’s Mother send a card over.

It is one of those cards you need to see first

before I “try” to explain it.

That is a pretty impressive project, right?

I am SO excited to share it with my little nieces

who are sometimes little monsters!

By Teneale Williams | Stampin' Up! Artisan | Halloween pop up slider treat box

I LOVE that greeting.

You can see above I created a box with a

belly band around the base that slides off.

By Teneale Williams | Stampin' Up! Artisan | Halloween pop up slider treat box

Pull the little ribbon and the box slides…


I have used the new mini stapler

to attach the ribbon… I love that little tool.

I was surprised that it went through

2 layers of ribbon and DSP with no issue.

You can see the images spring up.

The images have a thin strip of window sheet

attached with glue dots.

I have three rows of images.

With the smaller images at the front

three images in the middle row and

the back row just 2 images which I placed

inline with the spaces from the second row.

I have wrapped 3 mini Chocolate bars

one has a plastic spider…

So trick or treat is fitting {wink}

Hello my stampin friends,

it is Fathers day here in Australia

so I really should be sharing a Fathers Day card,

but I gave it away without getting a photo!

I hope all my Australian readers had a lovely day

with celebrating the males in your family!


I am in the middle of my second Blendabilities technique classes

Last month we started with the basics and finding your

colouring style {ie dark to light or light to dark}

In the second instalment of our Blendabilities classes

I am showing my ladies more in depth blending techniques

with us creating this card in a 2 hour class:

By Teneale Williams | Bleandabilities used to colour Perfect Peacock from #StampinUp

I adore colouring and always find it relaxing,

I LOVE so many things about the Blendabilities

but number ONE is how I can build the colours and tone.

Whats better is I am not alone, all of my ladies are now crazy

for the Blendabilities and can not wait until they get their next set

Here is a photo from my Instagram account {follow me}

 of one of my groups last week colouring, and I commented

that normally this group are very chatty as they create

which I love because it comes with laughter and that is always

a good sign everyone is having a wonderful time,

however the room was silent, as they were all

SO invested in their colouring !

September is here, for me  that brings spring!

I love this season, the birds and lovely warmer Australian weather.

I feel like I have used some of that inspiration on my card for

this weeks Stampin’ Artisan Blog  Hop.

I have used Four Feathers from the new Holiday Catalogue

You can view the Australian Holiday Catalogue  HERE


I have used watercolour paper and clear embossed

the feathers then watercoloured over them with

Pool Party and Soft Sky re-inker.


For the background I have again used Watercolour paper

and a Stampin Spritzer bottle filled with water

Soft Sky and Pool Party re-inker.

I sprayed only from the bottom left corner,

leaving that corner much darker.

Here is the inside of my card,

I have used Choose Happiness for the greeting and bird.

Also I used this set on the from of the card with the stamped

boarder above the ribbon trims.
