STAMPIN' DREAMS BLOG HOP - LOVE THEME

Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. This month's theme is LOVE. You are currently visiting Rosalie Desmond from Australia. I hope you like my card.




I used the heart stamp in this set to create a boarder inside the card.



The moment I saw the Bird Banter stamp set I knew I wanted to make the Buggies into love bird silhouettes. I love it when I look at a set and instantly have ideas and in this case I am happy with the results.



Once I stamped the two bird images out, I then used the Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to colour the inside of the image. A nice and simple way to create a different look with stamps.

Bird Banter 145852


I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting (your name). Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!

Thanks for stopping by,

FAVORITE SALE-A-BRATION OR OCCASIONS CATALOGUE PRODUCTS - KYLIE'S INTERNATIONAL BLOG HIGHLIGHTS

One of my new favourite sets which is in the current Sale-a-Bration catalogue is the Party Pandas set. I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw this in the catalogue, so super cute and FREE with orders over $90AUS.

This card was created for my gorgeous 1 year Great Nephew in celebration of his 1st birthday.




I love this little panda, he is so much fun, easy to stamp and just needed to add a little colour. The bright colours in the strip of paper from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (1441118) gave me my colour inspiration for my card, with some Bermuda Bay (my favourite colour) thrown in.

The sentiment I used "Happy Birthday" is from the same set, Party Pandas and the number 1 was die cut using the Large Number Framelits (140622).




For the inside of my card I used the balloon portion of one of the panda stamps to further create the birthday theme.





Measurements:

Real Red Card Base 21 x 20cm, scored at 10.5cm
Inside Whisper White Layer 9.5 x 14cm
Strip of DSP 5 x 14.9cm
Scraps of Whisper White and Pacific Point Card stock

2018 SALE-A-BRATION & OCCASSION CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP

I love this time of year - Sale a Bration!
FREE products, new catalogues and bonus rewards, what more could I want - a blog hop of course! 

So on that note, welcome to the Crazy Crafters 2018 Sale-a-Bration & Occassions catalogue blog hop. You are in for a treat. Follow the whole hop around and you will have the chance to see some amazing projects and get some inspiration. 

I thought I would share another project with my (current) favourite stamp sets - Beautiful Peacock! I made this card for a wonderful friend (look away now Ellen). I didn’t send her a birthday card late last year as nothing I made was right, so I am sending this one instead. 






I love this colour combination - Lemon Lime Twist, Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay. I did do a little bit of fussy cutting of the peacocks body, but it’s a pretty easy cut and gives it some dimension. 




One of the wonderful aspects of making your own cards is that you can create them to your taste, so remember to add a little something to the inside of your card. 





I hope you enjoy the remainder of the  blog hop. 

Thank you for stopping by,
Rosalie

BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK - #GDP120

After a long blogging break, and an even longer break from entering challenges, I thought it would be fun to play along with the latest Global Design Project challenge.

Here is my entry.





Inspiration can come from many places, from photos, scenery, clothing, nature and the like. This time, the inspiration is from Krista's card. I used not only her layout, but also her colour palette.




I love the way the Soft Sky, Gold and White remind me of elegance and relaxation. I choose not to have a sentiment on my card. This will allow me to have versatility and use the card for an almost endless amount of purposes.






For this card I used the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set - Beautiful Peacock. You are able to receive this set for FREE by spending over $90 AUS in any order between now and March 31, 2018.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base 21 x 20cm, scored at 10.5cm
Larger Whisper White Layer 9.5 x 14cm7
Smaller Whisper White Layer 8 x 12.5cm
Inside Whisper White Layer 9.5 x 14cm
Scraps of Whisper White and Soft Sky

CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP WITH ANGELA MERIRITZ-REID

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 Angela Meriritz-Reid. I am so excited to have Angela joining us today, her work is absolutely brilliant. Make sure you take some time later to 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.

This is the card that Angela inspired me to create. 












I used the Playful Backgrounds Stamp Set to create the background using similar colours to Angela. I love the boldness of the rich colours. I then stamped the dragonfly from Dragonfly Dreams on vellum and coloured the back of the wings using a Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write marker.

My card today has been made for a beautiful friend and vellum lover that I saw over the weekend at the Melbourne Stampin' Up! event (more on that during the week). Thanks Miss E for introducing me to vellum.


This is the card from which I took my inspiration from. I loved the colours and the layout, so much that I just had to use them.




I hope you take the time to explore all the creations the blog hop has to offer.

JUST A LITTLE COLOUR

Sometimes it is nice just to sit down and colour a little, for some reason I find it relaxing. Maybe it is because it brings back childhood memories of spending time with my sister or maybe it is just because I can shut the world out and not think too much.

I made this card for one of my downlines for her birthday.







Feathery Friends is such a lovely set to use. The images are clear and simple, which makes colouring fun.



Feathery Friends (wood 144032, clear 144037)




To colour the images I used Stampin' Write Markers, teaming up Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach and Daffodil Delight. I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, first in Lemon Lime Twist, then I offset it slightly and stamped in Flirty Flamingo. To give the card a little something special I used fine-tipped glue over some of the images after they were coloured to give them a pop.
