Pootler's Design Team - Week 3


Can you believe we're at Week 3 of the Pootler's Design Team for January?  Where is the month going?  So, as promised, for each Thursday in January, I'll be posting a project created using this little cutie...


Bella and Friends had been on my wish list since the launch of the current Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue (along with pretty much every other stamp set that hadn't yet made it into my ever growing collection - I'm such a stamp addict), and I'm delighted to share with you this week's Bella and Friends creation.


I have to admit, I've become slightly addicted to this watercolour technique.  Who would have thought that a Classic Stampin' Pad could be so versatile?  I know I didn't!

This week's project is created by stamping the image and greeting onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 3 5/8" x 5 3/8", using the Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad.  Once dry (which takes very little time), I then used one of my Aqua Painters and my Classic Stampin' Pad's (in Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive) to watercolour the image.


Once dry, using Snail Adhesive, I then mounted this image onto a piece of Island Indigo Cardstock, measuring 3 7/8" x 5 5/8".  This was then mounted onto a C6 card blank I created from half a sheet of A4 Whisper White Thick Cardstock, again using Snail Adhesive.

This is such a simple card to make, but I think its very effective and gorgeous.  I hope you do too!

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I cant wait to be able to share with you my next creation for the Pootler's Design Team, and I hope you pop back next week to see what I've created.

Pootler's Design Team - Week 2


I was so excited to discover I'd been accepted onto the Pootler's Design Team for January, and even more so when I discovered which of the fab Stampin' Up! stamp sets I'd be playing with!  So for each Thursday in January, I'll be posting a project created using this little cutie...


Bella and Friends has been on my wish list since the launch of the current Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue (along with pretty much every other stamp set that hadn't yet made it into my ever growing collection - I'm such a stamp addict), and I'm delighted to share with you the second of my Bella and Friends creations.


I couldn't resist creating a card with an added bit of sparkle for this weeks project.  With the weather being cold and grey, I'm sure there is at least one person I can think of that would appreciate this Bella and Friends creation.

I made this card by cutting a sheet of Whisper White Thick Cardstock in half, then folded in half using the Stampin' Trimmer.  I then cut a piece of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock to , before mounting it to the front of the card using Snail Adhesive

Taking a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I then trimmed this to 3 5/8" x5 3/8", before stamping the dog and bird image in Basic Grey ArchivalStampin' Pad.  A second image (this time, just using the balloon) was then stamped onto a Wisteria Wonder sheet from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack, then cut out and stuck over the stamped balloon, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I also stamped the sentiment onto another piece of Whisper White Cardstock, before running it through my Big Shot with a Stitched Shape Framelits Die.  The image was then coloured in using an Aqua Painter and my Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, Chocolate Chip, and Crushed Curry Classic Stampin' Pads.

 
Once dry, I created the glittery background by using a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and once dry, attached this panel to the Wisteria Wonder panel on the card.  The sentiment was then attached to the card front using a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.

Pootler's Design Team - Week 1


I was so excited to discover I'd been accepted onto the Pootler's Design Team for January, and even more so when I discovered which of the fab Stampin' Up! stamp sets I'd be playing with!  So for each Thursday in January, I'll be posting a project created using this little cutie...

Bella and Friends

Bella and Friends has been on my wish list since the launch of the current Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue (along with pretty much every other stamp set that hadn't yet made it into my ever growing collection - I'm such a stamp addict), and I'm delighted to share with you the first of my Bella and Friends creations.


I thought I'd start with a cute little 3" square Thank You card, perfect for popping into a bunch of flowers, or on top of a gift.

The card blank (3"x6") was cut from a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock and scored down the centre using the Stampin' Trimmer.  Then, taking a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad I stamped the image of the bird (taken from Bella and Friends), and coloured the image using a watercolour technique with an Aqua Painter and Real Red, Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, and Elegant Eggplant Classic Stampin' Pads.  This was then cut out using my Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits Dies, and matted onto a scalloped circle of Real Red Cardstock, also cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.

The background was taken from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack and cut to 2 7/8"x2 7/8" (with an additional piece cut for inside of the card).  This was then applied to the card blank using Snail Adhesive, with the topper being applied to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.


The greeting on the inside of the card (also taken from Bella and Friends) was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad.  The greeting was then punched out using the Decorative Label Punch, and stuck in place using Snail Adhesive.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I cant wait to be able to share with you my next creation for the Pootler's Design Team, and I hope you pop back next week to see what I've created.

Pootlers & Artful Stampers Blog Hop


What a day today is!  A massive welcome to my blog, and an equally massive welcome to today's Pootlers and Artful Stampers Blog Hop!

Today you are in for a treat!  For those of you that don't know what a blog hop is, its where a group of like-minded people get together and blog along the same theme, with a link enabling you to "hop" between the blogs (see below). 

My name is Camille, also known by the name Cam's Creativity, and I'm an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator here in the UK.  I'm also part of a wonderful team called the Pootlers, and today we are teaming up with the fabulous Artful Stampers, a sister team over in Australia, to bring you this blog hop (I have to say, I'm feeling rather jealous of your weather Artful Stampers - its a little chilly here in the UK).

Today's theme is Anything Goes, and as I no doubt many of my fellow bloggers will be going with something Christmassy from the Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue, I've gone for something from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  And here is my creation...


I used the following products in creating this Thank You card.
  • Pop of Paradise stamp set
  • Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape
  • Pop of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper
  • Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad
  • Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin' Pad
  • Basic Black Cardstock
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Snail Adhesive
This card is a relatively easy one to make, with the card blank being decorated with a few strips from the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape, and the background which the flamingo is mounted onto, being a piece from the Pop of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper.

I have to say, I do love a bit of pink, and love how this card has turned out.  Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you!
