HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Although I love ribbon, love both the feel and the look, I have a tendency not to use it often. I broke that tradition with these cards today.









Both of these cards are using the 2017-2019 In-colours. Both are the same design, just with different colours.




The matching 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon is so soft, its a delight to tie into a bow.



Measurements:


Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm
First Layer 14.2 x 10cm
Whisper White Layer 14.3 x 9.5cm
Designer Series Paper 8 x 9cm
Ribbon

PRETTY LITTLE WOOD WORDS

Every now and then I like to do something a little different with my cards.





This time I cut the front a little shorter than the back and then punch out a part shape using the pretty label punch. I then punched out a pretty label in Daffodil Delight card stock and added a hand cut images saying "hello friend" from Wood Words on top.





The front panel was decorated with the floral image from Wood Words, coloured with Stampin' Write markers. I hand cut a few flowers from this image so I could pop them out using dimensionals.

Measurements:


Calypso Coral Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm then 2.5cm cut off the front
Whisper White Layer 11 x 9.4cm
Inside Layer 11 x 9.4cm
Delightful Daisy DSP 2 x 9.4cm
Scraps of Whisper White and Daffodil Delight

INK & INSPIRATION BLOG HOP - MASCULINE




Today I am participating in the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. This months theme is : Masculine. You are currently visiting Rosalie Desmond from Australia. 


Many people struggle with masculine projects, I know I often do. Colours can have a huge impact on a project and change it from being girlie to being gender neutral or more masculine.  For my card today I chose Island Indigo, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight. I used the background die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits to create a mask. I then used sponge daubers and ink from the three colours to create the background.





The scene was stamped with an image from Mediterranean Moments using Black Memento Ink and coloured with Stampin' Write markers. Then cut out with second largest oval from the Oval framelits.





To finish it off I added three 1/2" circles cut out of Pacific Point card stock on dimensionals and added a Daffodil Delight enamel dot to each one.

Measurements:


Island Indigo Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm
Whisper White Layer 9.5 x 13.8cm
Scraps of Whisper White and Pacific Point cardstock

CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP WITH JEANETTE EGEMANN


Welcome once again to a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This time we are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by Jeanette Egemann. It's so lovely to have Jeanette joining us today, her work is absolutely amazing. You should check out her blog. We hope you find great inspiration from todays projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me. Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

I took inspiration from some of the elements in one of Jeanette's projects to create this tunnel card.





Here is Jeanette's project which inspired me. I used the floral design and the multi coloured layering to create today's card. While the colours I used are different to Jeanette's, I liked the combination of green, pink and purple, and then decided I wanted a little blue as well.






For something a little different I made my card into a tunnel card. Adding some more of the floral images in the centre to give it a focal point. I then used the outline stamp to add some texture to the Tempting Turquoise insert by stamping with Tempting Turquoise ink.





Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base 21 x 14.8cm, scored at 10.5cm
Whisper White Layer 6 x 10.5cm
Tempting Turquoise inside layer 20 x 13.8cm scored at 5, 10, 15cm

Scraps of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Tempting Turquoise cardstock

JAR OF LOVE - SHAKER

Every now and then it is time to make a special card, this time it is a shaker card using the Jar of Love. I love how this stamp set has matching framelits. This makes things so much easier when making a shaker card.

SPECIAL BABY SHOWER

Sometime I make cards for fun, other times it is to join in with a challenge and then at times I create for a specific purpose. This time I created for a special baby shower that I am attending today. I gave myself a challenge to make the card using the Special Delivery suite, which is aimed for birthdays, for the baby shower card.

BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET - TENT TOPPER CARD

It seems like forever since I made a fun fold card, this time I decided that I would try a Tent Topper Card, as I have never done one before. My next step was to decide on which colours I wanted to use before choosing the stamp set. I came across a lovely colour combination at Color Throwndown Challenge #446, so thought I would join in.

I love the way the Calypso Coral, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight work together. I just had to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set that was yet to be inked up.




I totally adore the sentiments in this set. I love the mixed fonts and the variety, that are included in the set. As a bonus there are matching framelits, although I did not use them on this card.

Swap - Crafting Forever

Recently I participated in a card swap with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators. We were split into groups. Each person created multiples of the same card. Participating in this group means I now have 11 cards, all different designs, by different people with new products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

This is my swap using the Crafting Forever stamp set which was made almost four weeks ago. The main image is coloured in using the 2017-2019 in-colour Stampin' Write markers.





I used the paint brushes to create an interesting background for my card.

Measurements:


Basic Black Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm
