Flowers, Flowers and the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards SBTD May blog hop.


Welcome to the SBTD May Hop all about flowers - I ran a class using the Happiness Blooms coordinating items from the Occasion Catalogue that met this brief perfectly. 
So I started thinking - A very quick card using the Memories & More Happiness Blooms Card Pack - actually a lot of quick easy cards was the go. The pretty patterns make it so all you have to do is add a sentiment. Teamed up with the coordinating Night of Navy Cards and Envelopes (sorry sold out in Australia already) I had 20 cards within about an hour.



These cards are my favourite 3 hence you get to see them.
With the new Catalogue starting soon the 2 Memories and More packets in there are both on my list to do exactly the same process.

Thanks for popping past please continue along our hop using the Next Blog button below. Next months theme is - Something Old and Something New (carried over item mixed with new catalog items) so I hope to see you back here for that one.

Masculine Scrapbooking Page - Stampin' Up! with The Scrapbooking Global Team.



Welcome once again to the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop, we have 19 hoppers with us this time so heaps to see - This month our theme is Masculine pages so a little different to what I am usually up to. Having 3 daughters that are usually featured in my pages I really needed to think about where I wanted this page to go. 


 I am really missing Basic Black Cardstock 12x12 as I do like to frame all my pages so this time I have a Basic Grey back piece but it has been inked up with the grease spill stamp from The Garage Gears stamp set.


The Whisper White main cardstock piece needed something so I spread some embossing paste randomly across it using a paddle pop stick then let it dry. I then added Crushed curry ink to a piece of recycled cello bag scrunched it up with some shimmer paint then patted it onto the page surface.
I figured it needed more black so out came the Memento reinker bottle and I flicked it about the page (note it didn't dry real fast - actually the next morning it was still wet so I had to dab it dry with a tissue)

   

I used the Dies from the Garage Gears set to add a feature and the silver spots are the bits that fell out of the gear centers. The journaling strips are 1/2cm thick and I just wrote a few tid-bits my husband was saying as he remembered his time at the track with James.
I distressed the edges of my Whisper White card with my snips - they are sharp!


Heads up Garage Gears is staying for the new Catalogue year but as individual products not the discounted bundle. 
Thank you for joining me I look forward to reading your comments below. Please now continue along the hop and see Danielle has to share with us.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Mothers Day Card



In Australia May is the month for Mother's Day. Each year I make a stack of cards for the ladies in my local hospitals Maternity ward. For some of them its their first Mother's Day others not so but the cards are always well received. This year I wasn't working but my colleagues have told me the ladies loved them.


This years colour palette came from the DSP stack I have been using for some other projects - The Gingham Gala DSP with its Balmy Blue, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight colours.


First things first I stamped, inked and punched all the butterflies I thought I would need for 40 cards - yes I underestimated the little ones since my original thoughts changed along the way. They looked amazing on mass in my container.

 

The large butterfly has mini dimensionals under each wing - I curled the wings a little with my bone folder before sticking them down for a little extra shape.

 

After all those butterflies I decided to do a few more for my Mother In Laws card. These are just stuck on with a mini glue dot.
The lines were made using the Simply Score tool just for a little extra feature - just quietly I was missing my fibre element and figured this was good compensation for that.

 

I hope that you all had a lovely Mother's Day. Below is a list of the goodies I used to make these cards - some elements are retiring with this catalogue but those butterflies are staying so tweaking will be easy.





Just a note - purchase the Butterfly Gala Bundle before the 3rd June 2019 for 10% off.
