Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop: 3D Christmas Tree Garland

Friday, October 25, 2019


I LOVE Christmas and I love being able to decorate my home in preparation for the festive celebration.  My 3D project for the Ink It! Stamp It! blog hop this month is a gleaming garland of Christmas trees.


Below is a quick video of how to put them together:


I've used: Pine Tree Punch, Brightly Gleeming Designer Series Paper, liquid glue, gold thread, hole punch (you could also use a needle).

Here's what the finished product looks like strung up:



I hope you enjoy seeing what the rest of the design team have made for this hop!  Here's the line up:

Magnolia in Shadow

Saturday, October 19, 2019

There's a little trick to getting an image to pop out a bit more on the page.  It's achieved by creating a soft shadow around the outline in the darker areas of the image.  I've done it before with pencils, but did you know you can also do it with Blends?  I filmed this project so that you can see it in action - look for the video at the end of the post.


 If you look carefully you can see the Smoky Slate shading in both of the cards.  The one above was made using Blackberry Bliss light, Flirty Flamingo light, and Petal Pink dark & light.  The card below is made using Calypso Coral light & dark, and Petal Pink light & dark.


The leaves and stem for both were Granny Apple Green light & dark, and Crumb Cake light & dark.


Do you have a preference for colours?  Which one's your favourite?


Click the video below to watch how to make these cards yourself and use that sneaky little shadow tip.

Blackberry Bliss, Lovely Lipstick, or Bermuda Bay?  I can't decide which way I like this card best.  So what do you think?  Leave me a comment and help me pick one to make more of!

Bermuda Bay:

Blackberry Bliss:

Lovely Lipstick:

Fun cards to make up.  1) Watercolour onto Shimmery White cardstock, let it dry. 2) Stamp, colour, and cut out three flowers from the Botantical Bliss stamp set. 3) Cut a strip of Shimmery White cardstock and pop the flowers up on dimensionals and adhere. 4) Stick down all layers (Base = Whisper White, thick, matching coloured cardstock, watercoloured layer, bar with three flowers) and stamp the sentiment at the end.

Crafting forever with friends

Wednesday, October 02, 2019

No one appreciates a handmade card more than a fellow crafter so they are always my favourite cards to make.  Here's a bunch I made up for a recent team day which I hosted for a few other demos in Melbourne.


I love getting together with teammates and chatting away while we craft.  Joining Stampin' Up! has been one of the best things I ever did because aside from all the obvious crafting (and financial) benefits I have met some fantastic people who I call friends.


We crafted (see the photo below for what we made a few dozen of), chatted, had a yummy afternoon tea and bubbles and the time just wizzed by.  Why don't you join us?!  If you join my team then you can!  And don't worry, if you aren't in Melbourne, we have lots of fun in our private Facebook group area and still get to meet up at the annual Stampin' Up! days.


Send me a message if you'd like to ask me more about joining Stampin' Up! or just dive in and do it today.  You honestly won't look back.
