Colour INKspiration #57

Hello!  Thanks for joining us for Colour INKspiration #57.  I’ve chosen the colour palette today – I hope you like it!  We’re crafting with Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight & Granny Apple Green – inspired by these gorgeous Calla Lilies.

Joining us on the hop today, as our guest designer, is Kate Webb – thanks Kate!!  Kate’s pretty card won challenge #55 and we are delighted to have her along for this hop.  Each challenge the crew picks 5 cards and ask the members of the Colour INKspiration Facebook group to choose a winner.  Join the group and make sure to enter your project for the current challenge!  Click here to visit.


The bold & bright colours of this challenge reminded me of spring, so although the weather here is cold and wet (hello winter!), my craft room can be as warm and summery as I like.  So with the challenge colours in mind, I’ve stamped some pretty butterflies using the new Butterfly Wishes stamp set and lined them up in rows.

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

This style of card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies as a frame reminds me of butterflies on display in a museum.  I’ve make them fly as much as I can by adhering in the middle of the body and flicking up the wings….

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

But I’d like to try a card like this again with flying butterflies!  I’ll keep it on my to-do list for another challenge!

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

For the sentiment in the middle of the card, I’ve masked the other words on the ‘celebrate’ stamp with masking tape and inked it up with Versamark and heat embossed in white.  I then cut it using the Classic Label punch.  To create the banner, I used the end of the same punch.  I love when products are so versatile!

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

I have the pleasure of linking you to our guest designer – Kate Webb with her gorgeous floral creation.  These colours just work so well for flowers!

Thanks for hopping with us, can’t wait to see your creations in our Facebook group.

ESAD Blog Hop | 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

Hello!  We are so close to the new Annual Catalogue – the excitement is building!  I’ve joined in with my South Pacific ESAD stamping friends to share a huge blog hop of sneak peek projects and fun ideas for the upcoming catalogue.  Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and keep click on next until you get back to where you started.  If you’re already sipping & hopping, then you’ve come from the delightful project of my talented friend Rochelle Blok.  Click on the next button below to visit another fabulous friend – Jo Stubbings.

When thinking about what I was going to make for this hop, I realised the most obvious thing would be the share the new In Colors with you.  I’ve shared a couple of sneak peeks of my favourites over the last week (Rococo Rose & Pretty Peacock) – but there’s 5 altogether!

Using the Colour Collection DSP, a new stamp set called Butterfly Wishes and the Stitched Nested Labels, I created an In Color gift set…

2019-2021 In Colors | kelly kent

The Colour Collections are available in all 50 Stampin’ Up! colours – with the current patterns of stripes & spots retiring and new patterns being launched of script, mosaic, gingham & diamonds.  You can purchase in the 4 colour families (Brights, Subtles, Neutrals & Regals) and 2 In Color collections (2019-2021 & 2018-2020).

Here’s the colours of the 2019-2021 range…

ROCOCO ROSE

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

TERRACOTTA TILE

PRETTY PEACOCK

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

SEASIDE SPRAY

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

PURPLE POSY

** Purple Posy ink is currently available while Stampin’ Up! fix a quality issue.  I’ve used Highland Heather ink.  It’s a darker shade – but the tone is great and it’s a great substitute while we wait for the high quality SU! product we’re used to.

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

Do you have a favourite??  I actually think I’m going to love them all!  Even Terracotta Tile is growing on me!

Butterflies are definitely a crafting staple for stamps and it was lovely to see another sweet butterfly set in the catalogue. Butterfly wishes has stamps that coordinates with the Butterfly Duet punch, new butterfly shapes and gorgeous sentiments.

The butterfly I’ve used on this card is the DisINKtive style of stamping – very detailed!  It doesn’t like super inky pads, so to get a beautifully crisp image, make sure to scrape back the ink on your ink pad (an old credit card works well as a scraping tool) and use the less inky section you’ve created to add ink to your stamp.Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

To add some extra texture to my butterflies, I’ve stamped once on the label and again on a piece of scrap – cutting front wing of the second butterfly and then adhering it for a fluttering effect.

Any stamp set that has great images AND a birthday sentiment is top of my wishlist.  Don’t you just love the ‘Birthday wishes’ of this set???  I’ve heat embossed in white (my favourite way to add a sentiment) and cut using the Darling Label Punch (a returning item from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue).

Butterfly Wishes | kelly kent

You know I’m a fan of anything stitched, so it’s no surprise the Stitched Nested Labels have been on high rotation here at Papercraft HQ.  The stitching is a dotted line (rather than the dashed line we’ve seen in the other stitched sets) and it’s just delightful!!!  They are bundled with the Free As A Bird stamp set – and I know you’ll see lots of amazing projects on the hop using these products.

To continue on the inspirational journey that is the ESAD blog hop, visit my friend Jo Stubbings and her creative sneak peek…

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!

Stamp Review Crew | Beauty Abounds

Hello to the new week!  I know it’s going to be a good one when it starts with a Stamp Review Crew hop!  It’s always a pleasure to join my international demonstrator friends and share projects with you inspired by the same stamp set.  See the full line up of demonstrators on the Stamp Review Crew blog by clicking here.

This week we’re showcasing the Beauty Abounds stamp set and coordinating dies.  I actually didn’t buy this stamp set originally – just the dies.  But then I had stamp envy after seeing so many gorgeous samples and just had to have it!!!

While shopping at Smiggle with the girls last week (a cutesy stationary shop that’s very popular with my kids), I picked out some little lip balms to put in our present box.  We like giving gifts, so I’ve always got a selection of sweet little things for the girls to give their friends.  Smiggle always has something great to add!

Smiggle Unicorn Lip Balm

Although cute on their own, I thought they’d be even cuter if I added some Stampin’ Up! love to them.

In the past I’ve put the lip balm together with a butterfly.  This project steps it up one more notch and I’ve added this element to a post-it note holder with a pen.

Butterfly Post It Note Holder w Pen & Lip Balm| kelly kent

You can find the instructions for the post it note holders by clicking here.  Thanks to Kristina Rees for a great tutorial.

The pack included several different colours of lip balms, so I made a few up, ready to have to hand when we need a present.

This version is Highland Heather & Gorgeous Grape with some little butterflies.

Butterfly Post It Note Holder w Pen | kelly kent

And Pool Party with Bermuda Bay.  While making this one, it occured to me that this stamp set would be fabulous to make your own DSP.  I hope someone has done that in the hop!

Butterfly Post It Note Holder w Pen & Lip Balm| kelly kent

I attached the lip balm to the post it note holder with mini magnets so it could still be used.

Butterfly Post It Note Holder w Pen & Lip Balm| kelly kent

This stamp set is gorgeous and there’s so many ways to use it!  I love that it looks great in any colour and with those dots, isn’t limited to one theme or occasion.

Keep hopping and visit Jay Soriano to see the amazing project he has shared using this stamp set.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week!

February – why are you leaving us so quick???

I know February is the shortest month of the year, but this one just zipped by me!  Things at Papercraft HQ went into serious overdrive – three kids to keep alive, three houses to look after, a birthday, some anniversaries, the start of school, resuming card making classes for the year and so much more meant every day was a whirlwind of activity!

With all that happening, it’s only in the final moment of February I’m marking some things off my to-do list – like posting birthday cards for friends!  They will arrive in March, but I posted them in February – so it still counts!!!

I’ve always appreciated having a birthday month, so hopefully the recipients will too!

Beauty Abounds | kelly kent

I made these cards using some Occasions Catalogue favourites and also a new DSP available as a Level 2 Sale-A-Bration reward.  See the second release catalogue by clicking here.  The Painted Seasons DSP comes in a bundle with a floral stamp set – available to redeem when your order reaches $180.

Beauty Abounds | kelly kent

I like to make multiples of cards with subtle differences.  Easy changes – like a different size butterfly in this case – give you a different card for minimal design effort.  Other easy changes are – changing the orientation or using different colours or DSP.

The second card used the same die set, but the large butterfly as the centrepiece.

Beauty Abounds | kelly kent

Both cards have the same bokeh dots in Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove & Blushing Bride (to coordinate with the DSP) on a Rectangle Label (of course!), a Stitched Label die cut and a heat embossed sentiment.  The sentiment is cut down from the ‘FRIENDSHIP’ stamp in the Beauty Abounds set.  I always love it if I can get multiple uses from the words in a set.

Beauty Abounds | kelly kent

And those dots – I’m still in love!  I originally bought the Beauty Abounds stamp set just for the dots.  And I have no regrets!

Beauty Abounds | kelly kent

The stamp set also has a lovely flourish that I thought would look nice on the inside of the card.  Seems to be the month for extra decorating!  I love colouring with my Stampin’ Blends – they are so smooth and luxurious!

Beauty Abounds | kelly kent

Here’s hoping that March is a little slower in pace but just as full of love, happiness and fun!

Just Add Ink #445 | Embossing

Hello!  You’re going to love the Just Add Ink challenge this week – we’re adding embossing!

Image may contain: text

Make a project with any kind of embossing you like – heat, paste, folders….  There’s so much potential!  Go nuts and add all the embossing if you like!

I decided this challenge was the time to dust off my neglected embossing mat and use them with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits to create a pretty background effect.

Just Add Embossing JAI#445 | kelly kent

If you haven’t used an embossing mat before, it’s an extra set of layering plates & mats for your Big Shot that transform cutting dies into embossing dies.  They don’t cut through – they just leave the imprint on your cardstock.  Magic!  Especially when you add a spritz of Shimmer Paint (which of course you can’t see in the photo – but it’s there and it looks fab!).

Just Add Embossing JAI#445 | kelly kent

I’ve layered butterflies from the same Thinlits set on top and cropped down one of the bigger sentiments to just include ‘friend’.  Of course, the sentiment is heat embossing in white – that’s my favourite use of embossing!

Just Add Embossing JAI#445 | kelly kent

The DSP is from the Floral Romance suite.  This sheet is a vellum finish and just gorgeous!  The colours and pattern are so beautiful.  I love Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive together.

Stamp Review Crew | Butterfly Gala

Hello!  Happy Monday and welcome to the Stamp Review Crew blog hop.  I’m joining a group of fabulous Stampin’ Up! demonstrators as we share projects we’ve made with today’s featured stamp set – Butterfly Gala!

The projects you see on today’s blog hop will definitely feature the stamps from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Some may use the coordinating punch – Butterfly Duet – isn’t it cute!?!  So cute in fact, that it has sold out worldwide and Stampin’ Up! are waiting for more stock to arrive (expected end March 2019).  So, make sure to save the projects that inspire you and be ready for when the punch is ordable again!  Your local Stampin’ Up! demonstrator can keep you in the loop.  Until then, it’s totally possible to snip around those butterflies with scissors or you can stamp directly onto your project.


I’m a little late to share my Valentine’s Day card this year for Mr Papercraft because it was so perfect for this blog hop.  Luckily it’s not specific to Valentine’s Day.  This style of card would be great for a wedding, anniversary, appreciation  or general “I love you” card.

Butterfly Gala | kelly kent

I decided I wanted my card to be symbolic of the life Mr Papercraft and I have built together. The two hearts are us and the three butterflies are the little Papercrafts (two Lovely Lipstick girls & one Tuxedo Black boy).

Butterfly Gala | kelly kent

The origami hearts were so easy to make and look amazing in our pretty DSP.  The smaller heart uses All My Love DSP and started as a 3″ square.  The larger heart uses Botanical Butterfly DSP and started as a 4″ square.  You can find the instructions on making an origami heart here

Butterfly Gala | kelly kent
The sentiment in Butterfly gala was just perfect for a card for Mr Papercraft.  He’s my best friend and definitely makes me a better person.  If I had to choose anyone in the world to spend time with – it’s him!


Thanks for hopping with us today.  For more amazing projects, keep clicking the ‘next’ at the end of each post.  I’m taking you to Holly Krautkremer in the US.  I always love what Holly makes and can’t wait to see her butterfly inspired project!

Just Add Ink #441 | Inspiration

How good was the Just Add Ink blog hop last week?

We’re back to regular programming from this week with the usual range of fabulous challenge themes. You can see all the design team cards this week over on the Just Add Ink blog.  Click here to visit, and also share your creation with us.

The theme for this week is photo inspiration using this yummy picture chosen by Jo.

Image may contain: food

I used the gorgeous colours of the frosting to create a fold out butterfly themed card.  What colours do you see??  I pulled out HIghland Heather, Balmy Blue and Blushing Bride.

Just Add Ink #441 | kelly kent

The card folds out to the left – and the right!  This is the middle panel….

Just Add Ink #441 | kelly kent

To create this card, I cut an A4 piece of cardstock in half lengthways (your typical card base).  I then cut 10-3/8″, keeping the piece from the edge for the right side flap.

The right side flap was scored at 2-5/8″ and the tab adhered to the back of the right side of the card.

Just Add Ink #441 | kelly kent

Like everyone else, I’m loving all the butterflies in the catalogue at the moment. So many butterflies!  I coloured each type of butterflies in a different way.

The little butterflies are stamped in Memento ink, coloured using sponge daubers, highlights added with Stampin’ Blends and punched using the Butterfly Duet punch.  The halo dots were inspired by the Beauty Abounds stamp set (it’s on my very next order – you know when you don’t know you need something until everyone else has it and you don’t!!).  I made them by pressing the sponge dauber to create a circle.

The big butterfly was die cut using the Butterfly Beauty die (trimmed to just the single large butterfly), coloured using sponge daubers and then spritzed with Shimmer Paint (mixed with Isocol alcohol).

The medium butterfly on the inside was stamped in Memento ink, coloured using Stampin’ Blends and punched using the Butterfly Duet punch.

Just Add Ink #441 | kelly kent


Thank you for visiting today!  Make sure to check in with the Just Add Ink blog for the rest of the design team cards – as always there’s so many ideas from one starting point!

We’d love for you to join the challenge and share your card inspired by those scrumptious cupcakes!!

ESAD Blog Hop | Occasions & SAB 2019

I’m so excited for today’s hop with my ESAD friends – it’s a huge hop filled with Occasions and Sale-A-Bration inspiration!!!

Thanks to Lou Kitzelman for her stellar organisation that makes these hops happen.  Everyone hopping today is part of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator only group called ESAD.

Image may contain: text that says 'What is ESAD? ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is Facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. We love what we do and love to share with our customers, friends and blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community through swaps, challenges, and sharing knowledge, ideas and friendship. We are always there to help and support each other. If you are Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand and would like more information on joining our group, please contact me via this blog.'

For my projects today, I have focused on Sale-A-Bration products – because.. who doesn’t love FREE!  The winners of Sale-A-Bration 2019 for me is the embellishments – pretty paper, cool wood elements and fantastic ribbon are sure to lift all your 2019 projects.

Check out this stunning DSP with full colour butterfly prints on one side and black and white prints on the other side.

This DSP was the starting point for the projects I’m sharing today – desk calendars.  I’ve added in a couple of new Occasions products too!

Butterfly Desk Calendar | kelly kent

The calendars both use the Botanical Butterfly DSP, Butterfly Elements and Organdy Ribbon.  These are all items you can choose for free when you order $90+ on your favourite Stampin’ Up! products.

Note: I’m in Australia, the SAB ordering requirement may be different in other regions.

I made the first desk calendar in Highland Heather to coordinate with the DSP and set butterflies set on a quaint tea cup.

Butterfly Desk Calendar | kelly kent

You’ll find the tea cup in the Occasions Catalogue – a beautiful new set called Tea Together.  I stamped it twice – once on Whisper White and once on the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Using paper snips, I cut around the cup, handle and part of the saucer (this technique is called paper piecing and is best for the crafter who doesn’t mind a little bit of fussy cutting!).

The main cup shape – on Whisper White is cut using another Sale-A-Bration choice.  The coordinating framelits are available as a level 2 Sale-A-Bration item.  You can select the Tea Time Framelits when you spend $180+.

Butterfly Desk Calendar | kelly kent

The second desk calendar has a Balmy Blue colour scheme – don’t you love all the colours Stampin’ Up! brought us in the 2018 colour refresh!!

Butterfly Desk Calendar | kelly kent

I just love that crazy butterfly DSP with a vellum overlay!  And the pretty ribbon adds a fantastic touch to projects.   The SAB combo pack has 23m of ribbon (4.6m x 5 colours!) – what a great choice for a free item.

The itty bitty butterflies in the middle of each of the wood elements are cut from the DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch.  It punches so many of the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP…. so you’ll want to make sure the punch is part of your $90 order if you’re choosing the DSP as your free SAB option!

Butterfly Desk Calendar | kelly kent

Want to make your own 2019 desk calendars?  I followed my instructions from 2015!  See the original post here.

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of A4 (Australian size) cardstock in half (it’ll be 4-1/8″ x 11-11/16ish”)
  2. Score at 5″, 10″, 10-3/4″, 11-1/2″
  3. Fold cardstock into a triangle shape, with a mountain fold underneath.  Adhere the little flap to the inside of the triangle.
  4. Calendar front – Mat 1: 3-7/8″ x 4-3/4″; Mat 2 (DSP): 3-5/10″ x 4-1/2″

Butterfly Desk Calendar | kelly kent

I love this time of the year!  How lucky are we that Stampin’ Up! designs such beautiful products and then gives them to us for free!


Thanks for stopping by today!  Unless I’m your last stop, there’s plenty more inspiration to guide your Sale-A-Bration shopping list.

Next to visit is my gorgeous friend in Victoria – Cheryl Algie.

CASEing the Catty #190 | Artistic Impressions

Hello Sunday visitors – the end of the weekend rolls around so fast, doesn’t it??

CASEing the Catty blog hops are always a great way to finish the weekend.  Hopefully you found some craft time in yours – and maybe joined CTC#189 by sharing your project in our Facebook group..

There’s still 24 hours to participate in last week’s challenge (CTC#189), or you can start the week by creating for challenge #190 – pages 127-141 of the catalogue, featuring some of the samples from the Artistic Impressions section of the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

No automatic alt text available.

As always, the pages are filled with wonderful inspiration.  This Beautful Day sample on page 134 caught my eye…

I love the layered look of the front of the card.  I swapped the flower for the butterfly and changed up the colours to create this card…

Beautiful Day | kelly kent

The butterfly part of the card was created by stamping & black heat embossing the middle butterfly first.  I also created a mask using copy paper which I placed over the first butterfly before stamping & black heat embossing the two butterflies either side.  I love the strong & shiny look of the black embossing powder.  It’s so lovely to have it back in the catalogue!

I coloured the butterflies using an Aqua Painter in Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and So Saffron, and added a shadow above the butterflies in Crumb Cake.  The butterflies also got a splash of Wink of Stella at the end!

Using snips, I cut the bottom edge from the butterflies and added DSP to the inside of the card.

Beautiful Day | kelly kent

As this was a card for a brand new team member who signed during the July recruiting special, I changed the sentiment to ‘hello’.

Beautiful Day | kelly kent

This is a set you’ll want to own – it’s called Another Wonderful Year and is filled with pretty fonts & great sayings!

August is a great time to work your way through some of your Annual Catalogue wishlist – you’ll collect Bonus Days vouchers for every $90 you spend.  See all the details here.

Don’t forget that we’d love for you to join us for this challenge.  All the action happens in our Facebook group.   Click here to join.

You’ll also want to continue the hop to see what the other design team members have created using the Artistic Impressions pages as inspiration.

Next blog to visit is the gorgeous Judy May.

Thanks for joining us!
