IDEAS Blog Hop - 'Bird Ballad' Wellness Projects

Blog_Hop_Banner

Hi there

Welcome to the blog hop for the IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') team. We are a group of international demonstrators who create a Tutorial Bundle each month to give you, our customers and readers a heap of inspiration for your crafting. There will be a theme for each month and this month it is about wellness, so we have projects to say Hello/Get Well/Sympathy. We have 12 fabulous tutorials in this month's bundle, each including a card and 3D project.

If you've come from looking at Debbi's projects, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the IDEAS Team by clicking on the NEXT button at the bottom of the post. 

I have a 'ninja' project for you this month as it can configured in a number of ways. It comprises an easel card and a gift box drawer with optional insert. They are separate projects, but you can also create a combined card/gift box as shown in my photo below. I have made mine as a Get Well, with my gift box including some Aloe Vera tissues and some lovely doTERRA products that are perfect for when you're feeling under the weather. As we are coming into Winter in Australia, this is the perfect Get Well gift to make and have on hand.

However, this project would also be perfect for a birthday, thank you or friendship gift with a change of greeting.  It would make a fabulous gift for someone starting a new job, to put on their desk with some uplifting and motivating doTERRA Touch Roll On essential oil blends included, that will also fit into the drawer.

Broadway Milestone Birthday

Hi there

Someone in our house had a milestone birthday last week, so I made this double easel card to celebrate. This is a really simple fancy fold but has a wow factor to it.

Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Double Easel Fancy Fold - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I started with a thick Whisper White card base and then added the black easel panel to the front. The black, gold and white candle design paper from the Broadway Bound Specialty paper was added to the the back panel.

Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Double Easel Fancy Fold - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

The numbers were cut from a sheet of the designer paper. I adhered them to Whisper White first to make them more robust before popping them up onto the Black Foil circle.  The balloons were grouped together and adhered under the matted foil circle, which was popped up on the Gold Foil scallop circle. The gold spotted balloon was created using the balloon stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and then die cut.

Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Double Easel Fancy Fold - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

For the inside, I have decorated both surfaces with the birthday die in Gold Glimmer at the top and a party hat heat embossed in black on Gold Foil is perched on the corner. Boys need bling, too!

I have gold embossed the greeting from Broadway Birthday and then added Black Foil die cut letters for the WISH using the retired Little Letters dies. I substituted one of the cute Candle embellishments for the 'I'.

CASE-ing the Catty - CASE a Layout

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are CASE-ing a layout from the Occasions Catalogue. 

If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Sandra's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

CTC226_Banner
CASE-ing layouts is one of the best ways to get started when you're not feeling inspired to design your own creation. Since I've been back from OnStage, I've felt my mojo was still on holiday in Auckland, lol, so this has been great for me to get started creating again.

CTC226_SU_Sample

I've chosen the card above as my inspiration this week. I love the laser cut background and the layering of the embellishments.  

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I started with the same laser cut design from the Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, which are sized to fit a standard imperial size card base as shown in the Stampin' Up! sample.  I added mine to a piece of Pool Party card stock, leaving a wide border and then to a standard metric Bermuda Bay card base that I trimmed by 6mm in length to create an even border. I think the extra space around the laser cut panel makes it look less 'busy'.

I chose to use a piece of the beautiful Petal Pink and Pool Party blossom paper from the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper as my focus. It is new in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue that will be shipping to my customers from 6 May 2019.  The paper has been trimmed on each end with the Everyday Label Punch and layered on a Bermuda Bay banner for a pop of colour and added to a stitched rectangle of Vellum card stock. The Vellum helps to soften the bold laser cut design and keep the focus on the designer paper. 

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I didn't want to add any more colours, so I've used Silver Foil and Bermuda Bay die cuts behind the greeting, together with some Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim, both of which are retiring, unfortunately. 

Stampin' Up! Bird Ballad DSP & Free as a Bird stamp set - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
For the inside I have added a strip of the designer paper on the left and then stamped and coloured part of the large bird image from the new Free as a Bird stamp set with Stampin' Blends markers.

Nature's Poem Masculine Birthday

Hi there

Tonight I'm still in Auckland, New Zealand after attending the fabulous Stampin' Up! OnStage Live event for the last 3 days. I've had the opportunity to do a bit of local sightseeing today and I head home to Melbourne tomorrow. 

I'm sharing a card I made a while ago, that I CASE-ed from a fellow demonstrator, Rachel Woollard. I've changed up a few things but kept the layout the same. This is a great masculine card to have in your stash and the layout is super versatile as you can use different designer papers to change up the look.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Poem Suite - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock the same size as the card base and ran it through the Subtle embossing folder for some background texture. Next came the strip of Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper and I chose the Cajun Craze design for a strong contrast with the Tranquil Tide leaves.

Rooted_Nature_Close

I wrapped some of the Braided Linen Trim around the matted Tranquil Tide panel and tied it in a knot and popped up the panel on foam pads.  The greeting from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set was embossed in copper on Champagne Foil for a really lush look. I cropped it with the large tree die from the Nature's Roots Framelits to create a bold embellishment that was popped up on the Tranquil Tide panel. One of the copper leaf trinkets was adhered with a glue dot under the knot. 

Stampin' Up! Nature's Poem Suite - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

For the inside, I have a strip of the Tranquil Tide DSP down the left side of the writing panel and I've stamped some leaves in Crumb Cake ink down the right side. The panel was adhered to a Cajun Craze mat.

CASE-ing the Catty - Classic Garage

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are taking inspiration from the Classic Garage  section of the Occasions Catalogue. 

If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Michelle's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

CTC223_Banner
There are such a lot of great samples in this section of the Occasions Catalogue and I would loved to have CASE-ed more than one if I had the time. I will have to revisit this again.

CTC223_SU_Sample

In the end,  I decided to go with the card above from page 51 of the Occasions Catalogue, using the Perfectly Paired stamp set. I don't own this set, but a friend kindly let me stamp some images a while ago, so I'm glad to be able to use one.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Paired - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
The sample image was coloured with watercolour pencils, but I have used my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers, for a bold and bright result. I have a thick Whisper White card base and then a Balmy Blue mat to create my sky. I dry embossed a piece of Pacific Point card stock with the Seaside Embossing Folder and then cut the top following the curves to give it more depth. I die cut some clouds from Sparkle Glimmer using the Up & Away Thinlits and added the Sparkle Glimmer die cut 'welcome'.  'Baby' was stamped in Pacific Point and double cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to get the length I wanted.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Paired - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
After colouring the image, I decided to fussy cut it, so I could add my own background. It was a little fiddly, but worth it. When cutting right on the line of the image, I always go around it with a Stampin' Write marker in a slightly lighter colour (I used Smoky Slate this time) to cover any little white bits. 

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Paired - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
For the inside I have a Balmy Blue mat and some of the Balmy Blue gingham DSP at the bottom. The greeting from the Better Together stamp set is stamped in Pacific Point. The little deer from the retired Made with Love stamp set is the finishing touch.

CTC222_Banner

We are taking our inspiration from the Sale-a-bration Brochures again this week and I am looking at this photo on page 15 of the main brochure.

CTC222_SU_Sample

Somehow I haven't managed to ink up the Lovely Lattice stamp set yet, even though it is one of the first that I chose to get. This sample in Petal Pink is very pretty, so I let the colour drive my creation this week. 

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

My base card is thick Whisper White and I've added a panel of the very lovely Petal Pink vellum from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP as a background to the fussy cut floral image.  It was fortuitously lying on my craft desk, so I put it to use.  I recommend using a sponge to pick up a little Tombow glue from a Silicone Mat and then dab it around the edges of the vellum. Place the vellum onto the card and press lightly. You won't get unsightly adhesive showing through if you use this method. To add a bit of pop I have a band of Grapefruit Grove card stock at the edge of the vellum and I've carried it through to the birthday greeting at the bottom. 

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I have coloured the image with Petal Pink Stampin Blends markers, with a little Calypso Coral for the shading. I've used my favourite Granny Apple Green for the leaves and then fussy cut the image leaving only a narrow border. The image was adhered to the panel, popped up on Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

For the inside I have a mat of Grapefruit Grove and a strip of the Petal Pink vellum at the base. I stamped part of the Lovely Lattice image again and coloured and fussy cut just the largest flower and the smaller attached flower.  It is such a lovely image to colour.

Art With Heart Easter Blog Hop

SWH_March_Banner

Hi there

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects with an Easter theme.  Don’t forget, Sale-a-bration ends on March 31st! There is still time to earn FREE product with purchase or even join our Stampin’ Up! team. Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.
 
Tonight, I have 2 very different Easter cards for you. The first one uses the His Grace stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue together with the Cross of Hope Framelits dies for a simple, but elegant card celebrating the true meaning of Easter. I'm sure my Mum will love this.
 

Stampin' Up! His Grace - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

The base card is Gorgeous Grape and I have a narrow border of Silver Foil for the art panel. I stamped the sentiment at the top in Gorgeous Grape ink and the floral spray in Early Espresso ink and coloured it with Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. To add extra texture and interest, I spritzed the reverse side lightly with water and ran it through the Subtle embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! His Grace - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

The cross in Silver Foil was popped up and then the narrow cross in Gorgeous Grape was also popped up over the ribbon. The dove was silver embossed and I used a glue pen to add Dazzling Diamonds glitter and popped it up on the cross. I finished with a sprinkle of Clear Epoxy Droplets.

Stampin' Up! His Grace - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

For the inside, I have a mat of Silver Foil for the writing panel and I have stamped and coloured the single flower either side of the sentiment.

My second card uses the sweet Fable Friends stamp set and the Large Letters Framelits to create this fun card I will send to our nieces for Easter with some chocolate treats. 

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I have added some Balmy Blue Gingham paper to a thick Whisper White card base with Lemon Lime Twist scalloped  and stitched trim on each side. The large letters were spritzed and run through the Subtle embossing folder and then adhered to a second layer to make them more robust.

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

The cute rabbit was stamped in Early Espresso ink and coloured with Stampin' Blends, fussy cut and popped up between the letters. The little flowers were punched from Sparkle Glimmer paper and I coloured the rhinestones to match. The 'EASTER' greeting was printed from my computer and I used the Rectangle Stitched dies to crop it. I don't think rabbits have blue eyes, but it does look cute!

CASE-ing the Catty - Needlepoint Nook

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are taking inspiration from the Needlepoint Nook  section of the new Occasions Catalogue. 

If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Sandra's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

There is just 1 week left to earn FREE product when you make a purchase of $90 or more between now and 31 March 2019. You can see all of the Sale-a-bration products that you can choose from in my Online Store. Don't forget the Sale-a-bration Coordination - all those fabulous dies to crop the images from your favourite Sale-a-bration stamp sets,  available only until 31 March (except the Hop Around Framelits, that have now sold out). The popular Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack is back while stocks last. 

CTC221_SU_Sample
This week I've taken my inspiration from the card above, that I've cropped out of the banner photo so you can see it more clearly. I was attracted to this card because of the colour - Berry Burst (along with Lemon Lime Twist) are my absolute favourite colours from the 2017-19 In Colours and they won't be around much longer (sob!). I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make another card with this lovely colour.

Reminder: now is the time to get your retiring In Colour re-inkers and card stock, as they will go like hot cakes when the Retiring List is released in Early May. 

Stampin' Up! First Frost & Needlepoint Elements - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I decided to go with a square card base in Berry Burst and a centre panel in Berry Burst and a wide mat in Whisper White to add pop. For the centre panel I first embossed a section of the lovely needlepoint embossing die from the NeedlePoint Elements Framelits Dies in each corner. Layered on the panel is a doily and some of the white Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and then the flowers from the First Frost stamp set in Berry Burst, stamped off and full strength. This lovely stamp set carried over from the Holiday Catalogue, so you won't see it in any catalogue at the moment. You can find it in my Online Store, so if it is still on your Wish List it might be a good time to purchase it, as we don't know whether it will make it into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue that is coming soon.

Stampin' Up! First Frost & Needlepoint Elements - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I popped in lots of greenery die cuts around the flowers as well as stamped leaves from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Granny Apple Green. Finally the centre banner in Silver Foil was added on top and the stamped greeting from the Amazing Life stamp set was popped up on the foil banner. I added a couple of rhinestones on the greeting banner and 3 of the cute Crumb Cake buttons from the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons pack.

Stampin' Up! First Frost & Needlepoint Elements - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I have kept the inside simple, with a double mat and more of the needlepoint embossing die in the bottom corner. I added a stamped rose over the top and a single leaf spray.
