Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenges Challenge 122

 Hello and welcome to another Inspire.Create.Challenge. I am Karen Farquhar from Australia. This week we are celebrating the talent of not only a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator but also friend of mine Denita Wright-Smee. Our challenge was to CASE the designer, meaning: 

Copy and Share Card/Copy and Share Everything”. If you see a card and there's something you just love about it, go ahead and copy and share what you create!

You can copy the whole card or just take elements from the card and create your own interpretation.


For my card I have used the 'Stack, Cut and Shuffle Technique'. If you like to mass produce cards this technique is perfect! I thought this technique would be a fun design for my next Stamp-a-Stack Class. You could do this with any of your Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) packs as they are all designed to coordinate beautifully.


I have used only 3 of the paper's designs to produce these cards and I have cut enough pieces for 15 cards in total. By flipping and mixing the paper designs I ended up with 3 different designs but by choosing coordinating base cardstock to layer on these the possibilities are endless.


Because I like to keep things simple I searched the internet with no success for metric measurements for these cards. I found that the people who had taken the trouble to convert the imperial measurements to metric had still made them to fit imperial measurement cardstock and I wanted to use the metric cardstock.
So I have created my own measurements.
I have used half a piece of metric cardstock and scored it at 10.5cm.
I wanted 2 borders so I have cut my mats at 14.5cm x 10.1cm & 14.1cm x 9.7cm.
My DSP pieces were cut as follows: 4.5cm x 13.1cm
                                                           4cm x 9cm
                                                           4cm x 3.7cm
I created a template with a piece of 13.7cm x 9.3cm cardstock to use as a guide when positioning the DSP pieces to my card front.


If you are wanting to try this technique Karen Titus has some beautiful step by step instructions on her page with imperial measurements.
My caravans were cut from Trees Lot Dies available for FREE with a $90AU purchase during our Sale-a-Bration promotion. 


I hope you have gained some inspiration from my projects today.

Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges #120

Hello and welcome to another Inspire.Create.Challenge. I am Karen Farquhar from Australia. Today Inspire.Create have a Home Decor Challenge for you. 

When my new July-December 2022 Mini Catalogue arrived in the mail from Stampin' Up! I immediately fell in love with the Story Book Gnomes Suite. I had seen a lot of felt gnomes on Pinterest so I had the idea to attempt to make them using the Gnome dies.  for this challenge.


Firstly I created a gnome garland which I will probably display at Christmas time.



My next effort was a garden gnome adding the Pansy Dies for the little violas on the Gnomes hat and at the second largest circle die for his hat.


           

I also attempted a little girly gnome adding a heart die from the Give it a Whirl Dies and the flower is also from the Pansy Dies.



But of cause I had to create a card with the StoryBook Gnomes Designer Series Paper and the gorgeous Fern Embossing Folder.
 I hope you have gained some inspiration from my projects today.

Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges 119

Hello and welcome to another Inspire.Create.Challenge. I am Karen Farquhar from Australia. This week we are show casing the beautiful new 2022-2024 Stampin' Up! In Colours. So pretty.


These colours are so bright and vibrant I decided to create a birthday card for my granddaughter.
I used the 'sun' stamp from the Paradise Palms stamp set to randomly stamp the spots over the card face.


  My granddaughter who is turning 22 years old asked her Mum if she was having a birthday party. To which my daughter replied 'You are 22 you organise your own birthdays now'. Much to my granddaughter's dismay.


So I have made up a 'party in a box kit' for her as a little joke.


I have coordinated the box with the card. For the dots on the gift tag I have used a stamp from the Hello Ladybug stamp set and a stamp from the Hello Beautiful stamp set for the bow.


 I hope you have gained some inspiration from my projects today.
