I have returned to earth, following the high I was on over the week at On Stage local in Sydney, it was my first time attending the new style of Stampin’ Up! event and WOW! It was outstanding. I had the BEST DAY ever, I have started to Project life the event so I will share once I have my pages completed. Right now, I am sharing a scrapbook page I made of my sweet niece. I have not really “scrapbooked” a 12×12″ page in years! Since I started Project Life, but I have decided to add a few feature pages to my albums. Highlighting some beautiful photos I have taken.
I took the change from Global Design Project this week to case my fabulous friend Krista Frattin, we served on the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Team together in 2014-2015 and she is still on the current Artisan team, that is how talented she is. The card we are casing is below, see the other creations from the Global Design Team HERE
Here is my page; I have used only Whisper White and Very Vanilla Cardstock by using my Blushing Bride ink pad, I was able to add a little colour but like with Krista’s card it is used with restraint. I used the Watercolour Wash Clear-Mount Background Stamp Blushing Bride ink pad and I sprayed it was a little water before stamping onto the Whisper White cardstock. Inspired by Krista I have the image poking out from behind my photo.
The flowers are die cuts, I cut them from Very Vanilla so the stood out in a “re-fined” way. The rose and leaf is from Rose Garden Thinlits. The flowers are from Botanical Builder Framelits and the centre was sponged with Blushing Bride ink pad. Pearls have been added also to the centre of the flowers and sprayed around the flower grouping.
Happy new challenge day. Global Design Project has just thrown down a new challenge, it is a theme this week, not a very hard theme…. Nature. We will see lots of flowers, leafs, trees, bees and butterflies. Visit Global Design Project HERE
I am excited to see what everyone creates, I went with flowers. I selected “Helping Me Grow” as the stamp set to feature and I also used it on this card HERE back in January. I was watercoloured the flower using Rose Red, a colour that I have not used in a while but sure is pretty and Old Olive for the stem.
For a different background effect, take a whipser white craft ink pad direct to your cardstock, smooch the pad with the cardstock until covered. Some areas with have more ink than others. now ink up stamps with versamark and stamp over the cardfront that was covered in white craft ink. In this card the main panel and greeting was also covered with white craft ink for a softer look.

You’ll be hopping around to 8 countries and will visit 15 amazing Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators, each with an inspirational project for you to enjoy. There’s just 6 days of Sale-A-Bration left and we’re getting ready to say ‘farewell’ to what’s been fantastic Sale-A-Bration of 2016. Currently you’re visiting Teneale Williams from Sydney, Australia. You can continue hopping my using the list of names at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.
I felt like I needed to end Sale-A-Bration using my most popular set that my customers have redeemed for FREE for every AU$90 they spend, Flowering Fields. This stamp set was inspired by Australia native flowers, I have used the Waratah flower and this is the flower of my state (New South Wales). They are beautiful big and rich reds, so I went with colouring them in Real Red.
Colour your stamp with stampin’ write markers than stamp onto cardstock. Scribble a little colour from your marker onto a plastic surface like a stamping block. Using a clear Wink of Stella pen pick up a little colour from your scribble and watercolour. Best to not work the colour too much or the stamped image with bleed. Clean the Wink of Stella between colours. Once complete colouring, add splatter by tapping your Wink of Stella on a bone folder about 20cm from the cardstock surface.
Check out the other stamps in the FREE Sale-A-Bration range from the catalogue below, don’t forget you get one free with every $90 you spend. For an extra special offer, order and use hostess code VTVBTDR3 to receive a bonus FREE gift posted to you… it will be pretty special 🙂

Greetings my inky friends. You have arrived just in time for a new challenge from the crazy kids at Global Design Project, it is time for case the designer. The spotlight is being pointed to fellow Australian Jessica Williams, who is also one of the current Stampin’ Up! Artisans. With this challenge, a card was selected that Jessica had created, which you can see below. Our job is to take elements as inspiration to create a new card.
I am loving Jessica’s card, there are so many elements to note. Here is what I have created, her colours played a big part in my card. Not that it is clear in the photo but I have watercoloured the large flowers in Watermelon Wonder and the smaller flowers are in Calypso Coral.
I also took inspiration from the flower wreath, I did start out trying to create a wreath like shape using Brithday Bloom but the card was way to large! Then after a little more playing I ended with stamping and masking to have two flowers with a little extra popping out flowers.
Long time readers of my blog, know I love to stamp the inside. I really like the thin black boarder.
