Just Add Ink #455 | Sympathy

Some challenges are a fun way to provide inspiration and an excuse to get into the craft room.  The theme for Just Add Ink this week is “Just Add Sympathy“.

It was going to be a challenge where I created a card for my stash for another time.  Sadly, my friend shared the news that her Gran had passed, which meant this card was specially made to let her know I’m thinking of her.

Wonderful Romance | kelly kent

I’ve used the spotlight technique for this card.  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the floral images from Wonderful Romance twice – in exactly the same place on two identical pieces of cardstock.

I adhered one piece to the Whisper White Thick cardstock base.  The second piece I coloured using Stampin’ Blends and then cut (in the middle of the cardstock piece) using the Stitched Rectangle Framelit.

Lining up the images, I layered the coloured & cut cardstock over the base layer.  For extra pop, I adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Wonderful Romance | kelly kent

The beautiful flowers in the Wonderful Romance stamp set work so well for this technique.  It would work well with other large solid line stamps that you can colour too.

Wonderful Romance | kelly kent

Wonderful Romance (and the coordinating dies – not used here) are on the Last Chance Retirement List and will only be available until 3rd June 2019 – or supplies sell out.  See all retirement list items in my online store – click here.


We’d love to have you join our challenge.  Share your sympathy cards on the Just Add Ink blog.  You’ll also find all the design team cards there – it’s a wonderful resource for the next time you have a sympathy card to make!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamp Review Crew | Bike Ride

Happy Monday!  The kids are back at school today after a wonderful school holidays.  I have the pleasure of sharing my love of Stampin’ Up! this morning with a class of gorgeous ladies.  We’re making three cards – including one of the cards I’m sharing today.

Today’s hop is with my international Stampin’ Up! demonstrator friends as we all share projects using the same stamp set.  The theme for this hop is Bike Ride, which has coordinating dies.  Both these items are on the retirement list – get yours while stocks last.

This is one of the sentiment free stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! released.  It’s designed to be paired with sentiments from other sets.  Because of this, the artwork is full of fabulous images that coordinate with the bike.  This was the inspiration for my trio of cards – using the flowers, books & dog and not the bike to create fun birthday cards using repetitive stamping.

Bike Ride | kelly kent

The layout is the one I shared for the Paper Adventures team blog hop this month (click here to see my ‘Inspired by Fashion’ card).  I love how easy it is to create interesting cards using the Stitched Rectangle Framelits.  Thankfully they are NOT on the retirement list.

Each card has the image stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Memento ink, colour added and then cut using the Stitched Rectangle Framelit (3rd down from the biggest).

The floral card has been coloured using the stamps in the set – there’s a stamp to colour the leaves and also one for the flowers.  Makes it super quick to colour the images.

Colours: Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo & Granny Apple Green ink

Finished with a Daffodil Delight frame and Flirty Flamingo sentiment.

Bike Ride | kelly kent

The next card uses the book image.  This is my favourite accessory stamp from the set!

Colours: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather & Smoky Slate

Finished with a Smoky Slate frame & Highland Heather sentiment

Bike Ride | kelly kent

The third card from the trio uses the cute little doggie.  Isn’t he just the sweetest!

Colours: Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends – I coloured this one by hand rather than the stamp in the set because I wanted a checkered scarf for him.

Finished with a Real Red frame & Basic Black sentiment.

Bike Ride | kelly kent


After making these cards, I couldn’t resist making a card using the actual bike from the set.  For some reason I find it hard to see this bike in any other colour than Mint Macaron! (I think because this style of bike is so trendy at the moment!).

So, using the same layout, here’s my Mint Macaron bike…

Bike Ride | kelly kent

I never knew the die set had that cute little banner!  What have you discovered about a favourite stamp or die set just before it retires???

Speaking of retiring, I’ve snuck a little Lost Lagoon into this card – because I love it and even though something retires, doesn’t mean it loses its value.  Stampin’ Up! has an eternal lifespan as long as it holds a special place in your heart.  Some sets are worth keeping.  So, one more question – what retired colour, stamp die or other Stampin’ Up! favourite have you been unable to part with?

Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear your favourites and then jump on your bike over to Charlet Mallett for her amazing project.

CASEing the Catty #226 | CASE a Layout

Hello Sunday – and hello you!

It’s the last day of our school holidays here in Western Australia.  I love school holidays, but I know the kids are excited to get back to school and see their friends.  Bon voyage to lazy mornings, fun activities and no packed lunches!  To add to the fun, it’s swimming lessons this week – so that’s a whole extra layer of organised for me!!!

What better to do to distract myself than hide out in the craft room!

Sunday brings us another CASEing the Catty blog hop.  There’s only a few more for this catalogue cycle before we jump feet first into a new Annual Catalogue.  We’re running for the finish line with a series of ‘favourites’ themes – starting with CASE a favourite layout.

No photo description available.

Surprisingly, this challenge was a little hard to get started.  CASEing layouts is my favourite thing to do, but with 2 catalogues full of amazing samples, it was difficult to select a favourite one!

I ended up choosing the Bouquet Blooms card on the bottom of page 167.  After lots of flicking through the catalogue, this card stood out for it’s contrast to my usual cardstock placement.  I’m very much an ‘in the centre’ or ‘bottom right’ girl.  So the fact that this card had the layering panel at the top left corner, made it a perfect CASE to make me change it up!

Although I kept the features of the layout, I changed the stamp set and styling of the card.  With so many of my favourite stamp sets on the retirement list, these challenges are a good opportunity to get some of them inky once again.

Needle & Thread | kelly kent

My card features the Needle & Thread stamp set & Needlepoint Elements dies.

Needle & Thread | kelly kent

The blues for this card were inspired by the butterfly patterned DSP in this suite.  Blue is is a fun choice for flowers!

Needle & Thread | kelly kent

I don’t always decorate the inside of the card (I should though) but it seemed perfect to continue the background stamping through to the middle (just like in the inspiration pic!).

Needle & Thread | kelly kent

I’m really going to miss this stamp set & bundle!  The dies in the set are so sweet and the flowers are so easy to layer.

Did you notice the border die from the Needlepoint Elements set that coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch – oh my!!!

Be sure that you’ve secured everything from your 2018-2019 shopping list, because once the 2019 catalogues end on 3rd June, it’s see-ya-later to the retirement list items.

Click here to browse the retirement list in the online store.  Products available while stocks last.

On the up side, the 4th June has a new catalogue coming our way.  I’ve had a sneak peek and it’s glorious!!!


For more creative ideas, please keep hopping by visiting the gorgeous Peta Stephen and her purrrrfect assistant Marv.  I bet Marv is glad the Cat Punch makes an appearance in the new catalogue!

Thanks for spending your Sunday night crafting with me!

ESAD Blog Hop | So Long Old Favourites

No photo description available.

I’m excited to be hopping with my Australian & New Zealand Demonstrator friends today as we share projects made with items from the 2019 Retirement List.

Image may contain: text

With changes ahead for Stampin’ Up! production & supply, we’re seeing quite a change over.  Clear and wood sets will no longer be manufactured.  From the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue (which starts on 4th June 2019), we’ll have the option of photopolymer (see through stamps) or cling (red rubber).  The cling format was released in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and they are amazing!!!

The other main change is a new supplier for dies and embossing folders.  Stampin’ Up! will no longer offer the Big Shot and all their dies and embossing folders going forward will be compatible with a range of die cutting machines.


It’s definitely the time of the year when you realise you have lots of favourites on the shelf that haven’t had as much love as they should – and will be greatly missed once they become retired products.  It was tough to decide what to share for this blog hop, but I ended up deciding on Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars dies.  Some of my favourite cards have been made with this bundle and I’m going to miss those mason jars!!!

I’ve paired this bundle with the All My Love DSP.  DSP comes & goes, with each catalogue cycle having more and more beautiful new prints to fall in love with.  But, there’ll always be some patterns that I’ll miss more than others – and this gorgeous floral is definitely going to be missed!

After all this chat, you’re probably wondering what I’ve made!!!  Thanks to a fabulous Mini Album project shared by Marion Benfield (Stampin’ with Maz), I have adapted this to be a deluxe fold out card.  I love this style of card, but don’t have much need for mini albums.  A card version combines my love of DSP and a clever fancy fold.

If you’d like to make Marion’s complete mini album with a waterfall section, she has been kind enough to upload the tutorial to Facebook – click here to view.

I always find 3D projects more difficult to photograph & share on my blog, so we’ll start with a video!

And here’s photos of all the layers…

Here’s a close up of the middle panel using the gorgeous Jar of Love bundle

Mini Album Card | kelly kent

I carried through the colours of the DSP to the flowers in the jar and the burlap ribbon feature.

The bottom section has a flap which I’ve added a removable insert for your message.  This section would also be great for a gift card or other flat gift (ie, jewelry).

Mini Album Card | kelly kent

Want to make your own Mini Album card?  With Marion’s blessing, here’s the adapted instructions.

You’ll need two 12″ x 12″ sheets of cardstock (same colour) plus your favourite DSP.

Cut one of the cardstock sheets to 10-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ and score 2-1/2″ & 8-1/4″ then rotate 90 degrees and score at 2″, 2-1/4″, 6-1/4″ & 6-1/2″.

Cut out the shaded sections as below

Mini Album Card | kelly kent

With the second sheet of cardstock, cut 2 at 11-3/4″ x 4″ (score at 5-7/8″) and cut 1 at 7-1/2″ (score at 3-3/4″).

Mini Album Card | kelly kent

The extra panels attach to the flaps left & right of the middle section and the bottom right panel.  This gives your card extra length.

Once you’ve cut the shaded sections from the above diagram and attached the extra panels, this is what your card base should look like.  You can round the corners of all the free edges in you like this style.

Mini Album Card | kelly kent

Add magnets (I used 6mm neodymium magnets) to the middle of the top centre panel and the bottom front centre panel (I hope that makes sense!!!),

Mini Album Card | kelly kent

Now you can cover all sides (except the centre back) with DSP.

DSP measurements with 1/8″ border

PANEL A: 5-7/8″ x 1-7/8″ x 2 (front & back)

PANEL B: 5-3/4″ x 3-7/8″ x 2 (front & back)

PANEL C: 5-3/4″ x 3-7/8″x 2 (front & back)

PANEL D: 2-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ (front only)

PANEL E: 5-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ x 2 (front & back)

PANEL F: 3-5/8″ x 3-7/8″ (front & back)

PANEL G: 5-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ x 2 (front only)

Cardstock measurements:

PANEL G: 5-5/8″ x 3-5/8″ plus Stitched Rectangle (3rd down from biggest size)

Insert for Panel E: Stitched Rectangle (3rd down from biggest size) layered on 4-9/16″ x 3-1/4″

School Holidays Stamping

We’ve been busy this holidays – play dates, gymnastics, Easter, swimming pool, roller skating, a sneaky trip up to Perth, science experiments, scooter riding, picnics – the list is endless!  It’s a full time job keeping kids occupied (and fed!) during the holidays.  But I love the time we get to spend together!

In the midst of all the busy, the girls and I took a moment during the week to spend some quiet time at home and get crafty.  They love doing ‘adult’ projects (no kids craft for them).  They search through Pinterest and present me with the projects they want to make.  This time the search was for fancy folds and the request was for a Jan B W card (see Jan’s YouTube tutorial here).

The picked their own colours, DSP and design, I was merely there to cut things to size and help them along with the instructions.

I love listening to them craft – using the correct colour names and talking about the different tools.  It’s so cute!!!

Here’s Miss Papercraft using the Big Shot without any help!

Stampin' Up! with kids | kelly kent

The other Miss Papercraft needs some help with glue (or we end up with a little too much) but she can cut, fold and stick like a champion!

Stampin' Up! with kids | kelly kent

Here’s their finished W cards – made using butterflies and love hearts!  I love the eclectic style kids have when they get crafty.  Sometimes I have to stop myself from putting my spin on things!!!

Stampin' Up! with kids | kelly kent

You’ll see that they both used retired DSP to make their cards.  Although they love Stampin’ Up! they prefer to choose their favourite patterns and colours rather than what’s current.  Lucky for them I have a large supply of retired DSP and I’m happy to share!  Whenever DSP comes up on the Clearance Rack at bargain prices, I stock up on more for the next time we make cards together.

Clearance Rack

The Clearance Rack was updated this week and there’s some great DSP choices from the Holiday Catalogue at the amazing price of $7.70.  That is not a misprint!  Less than $8 for 12 sheets of high quality Stampin’ Up! patterned paper!  These are all available while stocks last.  Ordering via my online store is the easiest way.  See the DSP and other items available on the Clearance Rack – click here.


The kids are back to school next week, so I’ll be resuming classes for Term 2.  I’d love to have you join me.  3 quality projects suitable for all crafting levels made using Stampin’ Up! products.  Your class is free if you place a $50 order

Date: Monday 29th April 2019

Time: 9.30am – 12pm

Location: my house in Dalyellup (address on RSVP)

Cost: $25 (or free with a $50 order)

Come, craft with me – you’ll have fun and take home fabulous cards to gift to family or friends (or keep in your craft room!).

 

 

 

 

Colour INKspiration #54

Hello!  It’s time for another Colour INKspiration challenge – possibly one of my favourites of all time.  Which is crazy – because it’s so simple.  Black & white plus a pop of colour.  But the simplicity is what makes it awesome.

No photo description available.

I can’t wait for you to see what the crew have come up with this week.

You may have hopped here from the gorgeous Anne Matasci.  Anne won Colour INKspiration #52 and joins us for this hope as our guest designer.  I just love her card – and I know she loves the theme as much as I do!

To join us and share your card for Colour INKspiration #54, find us on Facebook.  Click here to visit the group.

I could have made a million cards with this colour combination (if only time would allow), but sharing this sweet card made with a few items that will join the retirement hall of fame very soon.

Hand Delivered | kelly kent

The stamp set is from the Stampin’ Rewards section of the catalogue – Hand Delivered, the embossing folder is Petal Pair and the DSP is from the Brights stack.

Click here to see all the retirement list items in the online store.

Hand Delivered | kelly kent

My pop of colour is Bermuda Bay.  But like so many of the cards on this blog hop, you could sub in any pop of colour that was your favourite to change up the design.

Now that we’re using our fireplace to combat the cold weather, I’m experimenting with different locations to take photos of my cards. I love being back in the outdoors with all that natural light!

 


Next stop on the Colour INKspiration blog hop is my beautiful friend Nikki Spencer.

Thanks for hopping with us!

Happy Easter 2019!

Image result for happy easter

Happy Easter to you & your family!  I hope you have a lovely weekend – with a good mix of family, friends, craft & chocolate (and all the things that make Easter special to you).

Easter chocolate is my favourite – so there’ll be a few yummy eggs for me this weekend.

I’ve packaged up a few eggs in a cute little basket.  This project was inspired by Nikki’s Just Add Ink Choose Two creation from last week.  I’ve used the same theme I used for my JAI card – I fell in love with the flower bunny!!!

Easter treats | kelly kent

Click here for the tutorial by chic n scratch.

These cute little boxes could be used for any occasion and are super simple to make.  The dimensions are for US cardstock – which means you need 2 sheets of A4 card to be able to cut the pieces.  It’d be easy to adjust the measurements and I think this is what I’ll do next time I make them.

I’ve filled the box with Ready Shreddie (currently available on the Australian Clearance Rack – click here to view in my online store) and some yummy Cadbury solid eggs.

Easter treats | kelly kent

Of course a gift isn’t complete without a card, so here’s the coordinating card…

Easter treats | kelly kent

The All My Love DSP is one of my favourites and I’ve made sure to stock up on it before it retires.  All the DSP from the 2019 catalogues is retiring – making way for new & amazing patterns from 4th June.  See all the retiring DSP patterns & coordinating cardstock packs here.

Easter treats | kelly kent

Back to the craft table for this lucky duck.  I’ve got a hot cuppa and secret chocolate stash that the kids don’t know about!

Just Add Ink #453 | Add Two

Hello Easter, family time and a long weekend!  What are your plans for this mini break?  Hopefully all of the things that make you happy!

If you have Easter projects still on your to-do list, the Just Add Ink design team have some great creations to inspire you.  The theme for this week is Choose Two – Bunnies, Flowers, Crosses – not strictly Easter, but it does lend itself to that rather nicely!

Image may contain: text

After seeing a totally amazing card on Instagram (see it here), I wanted to create a whimsical card where the Fable Friends bunny had a flower garland.  So this challenge was perfect timing for me to Choose Bunnies & Flowers!

Fable Friends | kelly kent

With a pair of scissors in hand, I spend some time fussy cutting the All My Love DSP.  Quite a bit of time – don’t CASE this card if you don’t like fine cutting with scissors!

Fable Friends | kelly kent

I love the pattern & colours of the All My Love DSP.  I used it for the card background, the flower spray behind the bunny and the flower garland.

Fable Friends | kelly kent

The sentiment is from the Fable Friends stamp set.  I did a little happy dance that this stamp set didn’t appear on the retirement list (read: it’s in the upcoming Annual Catalogue!).  The bunny is adorable!!!  And so are the other characters!

Retirement List – Occasions 2019 & 18-19 Annual Catalogue

04.15.19_HEADER_RETIRING_LIST_SP

Well, it’s that time of year again when Stampin’ Up! regales us with the promise of amazing new stamps (and they are amazing!!!) at the same time as sharing which favourites are on the retirement list.

We know that all the 2017-2019 In Color items are retiring – Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide & Lemon Lime Twist.  Historically, these items sell out very quickly, so I’d suggest ordering sooner rather than later.

There’s several ways to view the retiring lists.  Click on the links below to see all the information in the way that best suits you.
