Everything is Rosy for the last time….

Happy last day of autumn!  We’ve had some truly glorious weather here in the South West of WA.  It’s been sunny & clear during the day with cool nights – so very changing of the seasons, ready for winter’s onset tomorrow.

Today is also the last day you can order the Everything is Rosy suite.  This limited edition product medley has been available during May 2019 – and what a fabulous suite of products!  Only available as a bundle, it’s packed with next-level supplies to be able to create beautiful projects.  You get a stamp & coordinating die set, DSP, ribbon, foil, printed die cuts, mirrored embellishments & shimmer paint.  Click here to see all the info in detail or click here to view it in the online store.

For the very last time on my blog, here’s the Everything is Rosy medley in action…

Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

This medley was designed with the avid crafter in mind – someone who loves their Stampin’ Up! products, crafts often and has a stash of other products at home they can mix & match with their Everything is Rosy supplies.  I’ve added in the large heart from the Be Mine Stitched Dies.

I’ve kept with the suite colours of pink & blue, but changed up the pink from Melon Mambo to Rococo Rose (coming soon) and Blushing Bride.  The foil is Champagne (you’ll find this in the Annual Catalogue) and I’ve popped some silver thread in there too.  I love the mix of subtle metallics!

Shimmer paint is my new favourite love.  The shimmer is out of this world and it dries quickly, so it’s easy to use.  You can see it on this card in the little leaves (stamped using Rose Gold), on the pearls (applied with a dry Aqua Painter in Champagne Mist) and on the large leaves (applied with a wet Aqua Painter in Champagne Mist).  You can also spritz it, heat emboss with it, flick it – and so much more!!!  Champagne Mist & Frost White are returning products in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue, but if you *NEED* to have Rose Gold in your collection, it’s only available in the Everything is Rosy medley.  Don’t miss out on this limited edition colour!  Click here to order via my online store.

Have a lovely weekend!  I hope it’s filled with all the things that make you happy and the weather suits your activities.  I love the Billy Connelley quote about there being no such thing as bad weather, just bad choice of clothes!  PJs & crafting with the rain falling outside sounds like the perfect weekend to me!!!

Everything is Rosy – Final Days!

04.01.19_HEADER_Q2_OOP_SP

There’s only a few days left to order the Everything is Rosy Product Medley – it’s a May only event.

This kit has it all – stamps, dies, DSP, ribbon, foil, mirror embellishments and printed die cuts.

I’ve set myself a challenge to really enjoy this kit.  When the pieces are as lovely as they are, it’s so easy to hoard them and not use them because then they’ll be all gone!  I’m particularly bad with die cuts in kits – I never want to snap them free of the outer layer.

So, this project set (a birthday gift for one of our Paper Adventures teamies), utilises the die cuts from the Medley, as well as some of the gorgeous DSP, the stamp set and the pretty ribbon.

Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

The only thing I’ve added is a Whisper White card base, a Stitched Rectangle mat for the inside and a navy blue notebook.  Plus Night of Navy ink and some adhesive.

Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

The elements of this kit are so lovely, you don’t really need to add much for the wow factor!

Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

With just a few more days left, and the chance they will sell out before we get to 31st May, I’d suggest ordering yours now!  You won’t regret having this in your craft room – it’s glorious!

Click here for Everything is Rosy Product Medley in my online store.

If you haven’t seen me mention it before, May is my birthday month which means every order gets a gift from me!

 

 

Just Add Ink #457 | Sketch

Hello!  Thanks for joining us for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge.

Image may contain: text

We’re all creating to a sketch and I know you’re going to love the design team projects.  You can see them all on the Just Add Ink blog.  You can also enter your card there for this sketch challenge – we’d love to have you share your work!

I’ve done some rotating and flipping with this sketch – the elements are all there, but I’ve spun it around.

This time of the year is always a battle between sharing sneak peeks of new products with you and enjoying some retiring favourites for just a little longer.  I’ve gone with retiring favourites for the stamp sets – Petal Palette (with coordinating dies) and Vertical Greetings.  I’m going to miss both of these!

I’ve combined my choice of stamps with a Rose Gold theme.  The Rose Gold Shimmer Paint & Foil Sheets are part of the Everything is Rosy Product Medley – available during May (unless sold out earlier).  For more info on the Everything is Rosy Product Medley – click here.

Rose Gold Petal Palette | kelly kent

There’s so many ways to use shimmer paint!  For this card I’ve used it three ways – with Versamark to clear heat emboss the leaves, then with a water filled Aqua Painter to colour the flowers (Rose Gold & Champagne Mist) and finally with a dry / empty Aqua Painter to colour the pearls.  Shimmer Paint dries surprisingly quickly, making it very easy to work with!

To use shimmer point for heat embossing, ink up your stamp with Versamark, the apply Shimmer Paint with a dauber and stamp as usual.  Coat the stamped image in clear embossing powder and melt with your heat tool.  The glossy & shimmery effect is so pretty!

Rose Gold Petal Palette | kelly kent

The strips of foil on the card are both Rose Gold (Everything is Rosy Medley) and Champagne.

Rose Gold Petal Palette | kelly kentHave you ever used two embossing folders on the same piece of cardstock?  Using more than one embossing folder is so new to me – it just never occured to me until I wanted a bit more texture on the background than the crisp finish of the Tufted folder.

The embossing for the background of this card has been run through the Big Shot three times.  Twice (once each direction) with the Subtle Embossing Folder and finally with the Tufted Embossing Folder.    I love how it looks and I’ll be looking for other embossing combinations!

Rose Gold Petal Palette | kelly kent

The full sun on the card is a little bright, but I wanted to share just how sparkly the colouring is when you use Shimmer Paint as your colouring medium.  You can only imagine how stunning it looks in real life!


All the products I’ve used for this card are available in my online store – links below, but some items are only around for a limited time.  Items on the Last Chance Retirement List are only available until 3rd June (or sold out).  Everything is Rosy is available through May until sold out.

Thank you for visiting and checking out my Just Add Ink card.  All the design team cards are on the Just Add Ink blog and the linky tool to share your creation with us.  It’s such a versatile sketch – I can’t wait to see all the entries.

Wonderful Mother’s Day

It was Mother’s Day here in Australia today.  I enjoyed a weekend of family time as I celebrated being a Mum to my three mini Papercrafts and also celebrating with my Mum – Nanna Papercraft.

I received thoughtful gifts from my gorgeous trio – a handmade box with gift vouchers, a personalised decorated stationary set, presents from the school Mothers Day stall, cards & artwork from school and a cute llama mama nightie which I shall be snugly wearing to bed tonight!

Here’s a proud Mum share of their handmade papercrafts (with thanks to Nanna Papercraft for being the facilitator).

I’m also sharing one of Maddie’s Mother’s Day artworks because it was so cute – my love of paper, stamps & inks is no secret in this house!

Mother's Day 2019 | kelly kent


For my Mum this Mother’s Day I’ve been working on a Mini Album Card using Floral Romance DSP.  I love the combination of green, purple, pink & white – in such a delicate balance.  I was able to complete it this week when my Everything is Rosy Product Medley arrived.

Wonderful Romance + Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

Sometimes when products have an identity within a bundle, it’s hard to see them any other way, but the stamps & dies that come in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley are so versatile, they go with lots of the other Stampin’ Up! designs – especially florals.

Wonderful Romance + Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

Somewhere between a scrapbook album and a fancy card, the Mini Album is a great way to take the card to a whole new level!  This is the second Mini Album card I’ve shared.  You can find the first one as part of the ESAD blog hop last month with full instructions – click here.

Wonderful Romance + Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

You can see how well the stamps & dies blend with the DSP for a wonderful collaboration.  Mixing between suites & bundles gives new life to everything you own!

The sentiment stamp set I’ve used for this card is called Strong & Beautiful and is on page 48 of the Occasions Catalogue.  It’s full of empowering words and fabulous phrases – ready to stamp and send to your Mum, girlfriends, team members or other women in your life worth admiring.

Wonderful Romance + Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

The vellum sheets in the Floral Romance DSP are so delightful!  Delicate yet bright, they add elegance to every project!  For this card I’ve used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to Whisper White cardstock before adding them as a layer to my card.

The Floral Romance DSP is on the Last Chance Retirement List.  If you love this DSP, it’ll be worth stocking up now before it is no longer available.

You’ll find the links to all the products I used in the table below.  Click to be taken to my online store where you can browse til your heart is content!


I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend, and the week ahead is filled with wonderful!

It’s Mother’s Day tomorrow in Australia and to help out my husband, I did my own Mother’s Day shopping this year.  I treated myself to the amazing Everything is Rosy Product Medley.

This limited edition selection of products is even more amazing in real life than any sample I can show you!  But, I’ll try…..

Everything is Rosy | kelly kent

The Rose Gold features throughout this suite are fabulous – from the foiling on the DSP to the edging on the ribbon, Rose Gold Foil, Shimmer Paint and mirorred embellishments.  Plus, there’s more Rose Gold that I wasn’t able to fit on the card in the form of printed & foiled die cuts.

The medley is $139 – and includes:
