Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Lots of Lovely


Hi Crafters!

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for July! You are currently visiting Jessie Holton from Australia. This month, the theme is CASEing (Copy & Selectively Edit) the 2017 Annual Catalog! So we have all chosen a picture of a card or project from the catalog & used it to inspire our own projects. We might have been inspired by the stamps, colours, layout or theme.

This is the card from the catalog which I am casing from the Whole Lot of Lovely Suite:





And here is my very simplistic take on it that I used for Maddie's party last weekend. I love the simple layout that makes it easy for beginners or advanced card makers to get a great result! And the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper is so beautiful, you really want to let it be the star. 


I've used the Pear Pizazz leaf print paper with the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon & ink. The sentiment is from the Lots of Lovely stamp set & doesn't it just fit perfectly in the Pretty Label Punch! I've added a nest of Copper Thread & some copper sequins from the Metallics Sequins Assortment for bling. The sentiment is propped up on Dimensionals.

I've also done some simple double & triple stamped flowers & leaves on the inside & I just love this sweet sentiment, perfect for so many different occasions. All of these images & the sentiment are from the Lots of Lovely stamp set & have been inked in Pool Party & Pear Pizazz.

I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Jessie Holton from Australia. Please see the list below & hop through the list to see all our projects from all over the globe! You don't want to miss any!

Global Design Project #GDP096 - Dragonfly Dreams

Hi Crafters!

Today I'm playing along with the Global Design Project Case the Designer challenge - Casing Tanja Kolar. I have had fun with this one & I hope you like what I've got for you! xx


I've done a pretty close case of Tanya's card cos I thought it was really pretty. I have used a Thick Whisper White cardstock base with a layer of Fabulous Foil Acetate - it's silver on one side & gold on the other. Just make sure you take off the protective layer so it's super glossy.


I've used the two largest Stitched Shapes square dies to cut a piece of Soft Sky & Shimmery White. I've also used the smaller Dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonflies dies on Soft Sky & coloured over with Clear Wink of Stella. And I wrapped some Silver Metallic Thread round the smaller square.


I have stamped the inside to match with the Hello Friend stamp set (image/Soft Sky) & the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (sentiment/Smoky Slate). I hope you have enjoyed my card today. I have also made a short video of me trying to make this card on Facebook Live with baby in tow - you can watch it here :P xx

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Jay Soriano - Lovely Words


Hi Crafters!

Some exciting news for you today! We are CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) the ah-mazing JAY SORIANO, who is also joining us on this hop! Exciting!

I hope you find great inspiration from all the projects in this hop. You may be starting the hop here at my blog (Jessie Holton) or you may have come from the previous person on the list. Be sure to click on the next person in the list to continue your blog hop adventure casing Jay's work.

Here's Jay's card which I have chosen to case. I really love how this sentiment panel pops against the diagonal one behind it. I love that Jay has used black for the panel, too. It's really bold.


And here is my take on it. I have used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (DSP) with a strip of Black Shimmer Ribbon & coordinating cardstock in Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, Berry Burst & Fresh Fig. I have cut a circle of Basic Black cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I have then layered the Silver Foil with the Hugs circle die from the Lovely Words Dies with a slightly larger circle from the Layering Circle Dies & put them through the Big Shot at the same time. I have used both portions of the Hugs Die cuts so I get two sentiments from each die cut.


I used the new Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Silver Foil before I cut it & it made life soooo much easier just having to peel away the backing & stick the dies onto the black circles. And I didn't get any glue on the front of the Silver Foil! Hooray! I found the Precision Plate made it easier to I've added a bit of Silver Metallic Thread & the Metallic Sequins Assortment for a bit of bling. My sentiments are propped up on Dimensionals.


On the inside of this card, I have used one of the sentiments from the Big on Birthdays stamp set & I have inked it up in Lemon Lime Twist all over, then 2/3 Emerald Envy & 1/3 Night of Navy. This is a fun Ombre technique for lazybones like me haha! When using this technique, it's important to start with the lightest colour & work your way to the darkest one. You also want to use colours that would naturally & easily blend into each other. To see this technique in action, you can watch my Facebook Video here.




I hope you have enjoyed my cards today & that you can hop around the rest of the crew & enjoy our cases on Jay's work. Thanks for joining us Jay, you were a lot of fun to case!

OSAT June Blog Hop - Very Vintage - Birthday Blooms


Hi Crafters!

This month's OSAT Blog Hop is all about Very Vintage. You may have come from the lovely Kelly Acheson's blog or you may be starting here at my blog. Either way, thank you for joining us & I hope you have fun hopping around this super fun theme!

I originally imagined Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand,Vanilla Lace Trim & the big rose from the Birthday Blooms set, but this is what I ended up with. I hope you like it! I am so happy with this card & project, even though it's nothing like what I originally imagined haha!


Smokey Slate, Soft Sky, Vellum & Powder Pink with a little of the blonde wood from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP). I have fussy cut the flowers from the Fresh Florals DSP Stack & added the new Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon. The ribbon is gorgeous! It has the tiniest bit of metallic silver woven through it. I've added Silver Sequins to match the silver shimmer in the ribbon.


I've wrapped my parcel in the Fresh Florals DSP Stack; this is the paper I cut the flowers from for the tag & card. I've cut out the squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies on my Big Shot. There are Dimensionals between the Smokey Slate & Soft Sky layers & I've threaded the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon & the Silver Mini Sequin Trim through here.


For the card, I've used the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder, although I think I may have stuck it on upside down haha! It still looks good :P

I've also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies for the Vellum circle & added some of the silver sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment.


I've just used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere the flowers to the Vellum & a couple more to adhere the Vellum to the card. You need to be careful which glue you use with Vellum as it marks really easily. The card looked too clean, so I added Clear Wink of Stella to my fussy cut flowers & splattered the card front with my Soft Sky Stampin' Write Marker.


I have also used the Soft Sky Stampin' Write Marker to hand draw a double border around the inside layer of my card with the pen tip end & then I've gone over it with the brush tip end. I have stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Blooms stamp set in Basic Grey on more fussy cut flowers, covered it with Clear Wink of Stella & added more sequins.


Ok, now I'll level with you. The box I wrapped for my project had my new Brayer still inside haha! So I unwrapped it after the photo shoot & re-purposed the tag for this sweet card below. All I've done here is added a Whisper White layer run through the Big Shot with the Woodland Embossing Folder & how pretty is it! 


Please make sure you hop around everyone's gorgeous projects, you don't want to miss any! Next up is my good friend, the gorgeous & very talented Jenny Hall! Please show her some love! xx
