Colour INKspiration 29

Good evening everyone!  Welcome to Colour INKspiration 29.

Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month the Colour INKspiration Crew get together and create a hop using a selected colour palette to create with.  You can join in the fun by creating a project with the colours and popping a picture of it on our Facebook Page HERE by the Monday night before the next challenge.

This weeks colour palette is a beautiful selection chosen by Bronwyn with colours Crumb Cake; Chocolate Chip; Blushing Bride; Garden Green and Very Vanilla.  I initially went to go straight to florals for this colour palette as it’s so suited, but I had another project that needed to be done for a customer order, so I decided to combine the two tasks.

My task was to create a card for a 21st for someone who loves baking.  I was inspired by how Jackie Aitken created a brilliant BBQ Card a few weeks ago, so I thought I could adapt a basic Card in the Box design to create an oven and get it baking!

I must say, once I worked out how to cut it to achieve the look I wanted, this was quite fun to make!  I did use a few different bits and bobs to make this card.  The cupcakes were from Lift Me Up Stamps and coordinating dies and utensils and glove from the Apron of Love Bundle.  The Basket Weave Embossing Folder made for a great background to represent tiles – I am so glad this Saleabration item will be continuing in the new Annual Catalogue – I Just love it!

And the best bit – it folds flat for posting!

Myths and Magic Shaker Shadow Box Card

Hi everyone!

Today I thought I would pop past and share on of my creations with you all!

You see, my niece turned 18 last week – so that requires a bit more of a ‘special’ card in my eyes.  I mean, its a pretty special birthday and something to celebrate. Plus, its another good excuse to create a 3D project! Lol.

My niece is a BIG Harry Potter fan, so I knew whatever I created had to be themed around that.  Aren’t we lucky that our new Myths and Magic Suite could make sure that happened for me!

I used Bronwyn Eastley’s Magic Mermaid Shaker Shadow Box tutorial again (you can see my first creation HERE) to create the base of this card.  However Lou, one of the other AddINKtive Design Team members created the same box with clear acetate, so I guess you can say I CASEd her’s as well! (with permission of course!) You can see her design HERE.

So here it is – my

Myths and Magic Shaker Shadow Box Card!

Myths and Magic Shaker Shadow Box by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis

I have created the back portion of the box using the Myths and Magic Speciality Designer Series Paper.  This is just one of a couple of lots of Designer Paper in the new Occasions Catalogue that is thicker than regular Designer Paper, making it fantastic for 3D projects!  The centre piece, number 18 and sentiment are all using our Silver Foil – it was just SUPER difficult to photograph with the dark background and glare off the acetate no matter what lighting I tried to use!

The wizard himself has been stamped and coloured using our Stampin’ Blend Alcohol markers, but the little wizard and the castle in the background are fussy cut directly from other pieces of the Designer Paper.  I thought the young wizard at least had Gryffindor’s colour scheme! All I really need was a white owl! Lol.

The castle and trees are actually set on the very back panel, so here’s a bit of a close up for you –

It’s a mini Hogwarts!

The lovely ‘Celebrate’ die is a FREE item available during Saleabration.  It was cut from our Silver Foil Sheets with a Fresh Fig Sentiment layered underneath help ‘lift’ it off the card.

The shaker middle section just adds a bit of extra bling and fun to the card!

Bronwyn’s tutorials are really very versatile! Once you have the base, you can mix it up to suit your needs!  Take a look at her tutorial store and all that is on offer HERE.

I hope you enjoyed my project today!

Seaside Shore 3D Fish Tank Card

Hi Everyone.

I am so excited to share my Seaside Shore 3D Fish Tank Card with you all, that I honestly couldn’t wait and had to post about it TODAY!

Our Team – Eureka Stampers – has been set a challenge this week from our amazing leader.

She has challenged us to create SOMETHING every day for the first week of October.  She sets a specific challenge everyday, and we create something according to tat challenge! You may have already seen one I have shared on my Facebook Page – My Paper Oasis.

Todays challenge was to create something using EVERY SINGLE STAMP in one set!  Have you ever thought about such a task.  I realised the difficulty I was facing when rummaging through my sets to decide which stamp set to use.  So many actually have multiple sentiments that would make them tricky to use for this challenge. The more I looked, the more I realised just how tricky this was going to be!

After LOTS of consideration I decided to choose our Seaside Shore Stamp Set. It only had two sentiments and a host of stamps that coordinate really well together.  But I really wanted to do something Fancy!  So I started playing around with ideas in my head, and came up with using one of Bronwyn Eastley’s Tutorials for my design team project this month.  The tutorial I used to create my fish tank was none other than her Spring Planter Box Card!

Huh? I hear you ask – pop over to her tutorial shop HERE and see her brilliant design for yourself!

I basically used her Box Base to create the base of my Fish Tank.  Check it out –

I cannot tell you just how much fun this was to create!  The most difficult part was photographing the Fish Tank! But I gave it a good try so you could see all the angles!

And you are going to love the next bit … it even folds flat for postage!  This one is in a 6″ x 6″ envelope.  The top will need adjusting slightly – or you could make your own using our Envelope Punch Board.

Bronwyn’s tutorials really are versatile.  I simply added Window Sheets at the same measurements as the box base (although I did have to trim a very small bit off one end for it to fit snuggly) and then filled it up with all the images from the stamp set as per our team challenge!

I truly hope you love it as much as I do! I would love to hear what you think – so feel free to leave me a comment 🙂

Happy Crafting!

Honeycomb Happiness Easter Card in a Box

Well it’s March already! That means there is just under one month left to get all the Sale-a-bration goodies you are after! LESS than ONE MONTH! Arrgghhhhhhhh….do you have all of yours yet???

One of my favourites would have to be Honeycomb Happiness. It is soon cute and easy to use – especially when you combine it with matching designer paper, such as the Birthday Bouquet as I have done in the past.

This project was a little different.  I was requested to make a couple of Easter Cards.   Now I LOVE easter – i am a self confessed chocoholic!  But I don’t do very many Easter cards…..AT ALL!  But with the limited Easter Sets we have this year, I knew that little chicken from the Honeycomb Happiness set was going to be perfect. And because it fit the brief for the SUO challenge 143 for March, I thought I would play along with that too! It’s the first time I have played along with the SUO challenges, but those of you who visit regularly know that I quite like a challenge! You can find all the info for the SUO challenges here.

And I love a card in a box for a bit of a fancy card…. so here is what I came up with…..

My Paper Oasis, Honeycomb Happiness, Card in a box, Easter Card

How cute is that! I LOVE how it turned out.  I started by picking a nice floral piece of DSP from the wildflower fields DSP (another Sale-a-bration freebie with a $90 spend).  I then build my box and colours around that.  That’s one of the best things about Stampin Up! Everything coordinates!  I featured colours Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey when building this card.

I used the Sprinkles of Life set for my little easter basket – and can you guess how I made the little easter eggs???? I used the little spoon from our new Cups and Kettles Framelits Dies. I just trimmed off the spoon tip and stamped with some mini stamps (the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set is perfect for this, but you could use any little stamps you have!) And to save me colouring my chicken, I just stamped him directly onto some Hello Honey Cardstock. Too Easy!!!!
