Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop - Technique #inkitstampit

 
Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. The Design Team have been busy making projects inspired by our Technique theme. The team are from all over Australia and have created amazing projects to share with us tonight. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite technique is?

I always wanted to be a paper designer, and I can be everyday especially if I use the Repeat stamping method. I love making my own crazy patterns and the best part is you don't need a whole lot if supplies to create something anaxing. I have used 3 ink pads and one stamp set to create the background. The circles are from a new & upcoming set called Swirly Frames.
Don't these look like cricket balls?! There are no rules with repeat stamping - just go for it, stamp all over, overlap the images and change up the colours.

Here is the stamp set if you haven't seen it yet! Watch out come June 1st when the new annual catalogue goes live.
If you like the colour combination, please share it on your favourite Pinterest board!


Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope that you'll join us again next month to see our New Catalogue projects. I'm Carolina and to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next.

I was a Sydney Onstage Display Stamper - Part 1 - Sharing my Scrapbook Pages

I was so excited to be asked to stamp for Onstage as a Display Board Stamper! My work, alongside a few other demonstrators are the first creations to be seen using NEW not yet released products. Today I'm sharing my scrap book pages. I don't claim to be a memory keeping expert but I think I did a good job to showcase the new products. I will be sharing all my projects over the coming couple of weeks so stay tuned for those posts. 

Thanks to Heidi Bell for this photo of my display!
Below is my first page of my son Marco. The journaling talks about how he's always trying to grab the camera, so I made a camera with the Swirly Frames stamp set. This stamp set is more than just lines on a page. The colours in my photos are enhanced with the reverse side of the Garden Impressions DSP, blues & greens always work well together. 
 
 
Here's a closer look at the camera.
Add a few layers for a realistic feel. How uncanny that it looks a lot like Sue's camera!
 
Hopefully I have made you think twice about this stamp set.

My second page is a throw back to 1988. 30 years ago sounds like so long ago! I thought it fitting to celebrate something from 30 yrs, as Stampin' Up! are also celebrating 30 yrs. The bottom photo is of my cousin Ricky & I in NZ as kids. I don't know why I'm holding the fish (fush), my cousin caught it, and clearly from the look on his face he's not impressed. It's been a bone of contention all this time! 
This cut out is from a Memories & More pack. 
I'm sorry Ricky! It's official now - the fish prize is all yours.
If you like my colour combinations, please share them on your favourite Pinterest board!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed seeing my Memory projects please take a few moments to leave me a comment I'd love to hear what you think.

Onstage Gifts and our Make n Takes

One of the best parts of Onstage are the beautiful gifts we receive. These exclusive gifts make you feel so special, knowing that you are among only a few people that has them. The gifts are always something new and different so you don't want to miss out on going if you get the chance. Read to the end to see our make n takes using some of the products we received. As you will  see I have a few things to share with you, so I photographed everything - that took ages but it is SO worth sharing it all. Ready?!  
We discovered during a Sara (CEO) and Shelli presentation that barefoot stamping is 'a thing'! So I have taken a picture of me getting ready for barefoot photography.
First of all - the BAG!! The bag of all Stampin' Up! Bags. This gorgeous shoulder bag is so lovely, it's a great size and is reversible too. 
 
A new notebook. I love the ombré colouring and the dots are like silver embossing. There were other colours too including pink & greens.
 
The light box - this is so cute and the size is just perfect to fit on your desk.
Stamps - of course we got stamps. Included in the picture are 3 sets that I got for being a Display Stamper for the event! Keep an eye out over the coming days for my posts on the projects I created with Swirly Frames, Artisan Textures & Detailed in Love.
 
Ribbons - oooh new colours and textures are coming.
A few more that we shared from our make n take box.
It is so great to be able to get our hands on some of these goodies even if it's just a handful. 
How gorgeous is this Vellum!? Looks just like the name suggests right, like Stain glass.
The first of our Make n takes. Ignore the bright yellow for a moment - I got totally carried away with colouring but there were only 2 blends on the table. Can you see this lovely PINK cardstock - it's a new INCOLOUR called Lovely Lipstick. 
Next up is one I shared in my Sunday blog post - featuring the Rooted in Nature Suite. I love this set!
To get longer leaves simply cut in half & adhere with a gap, cover the gap with a sentiment. 
This is a beautiful suite - which you will be able to order a month before it's released in the catalogue- mark in May 1st to your diaries!!
Share What You Love Suite
If you love water colouring but are too impatient with it, these new pre-coloured cards are for you! This one has a sheet of the new laser cut DSP over the top, it's devine and lends itself to so many possibilities. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed seeing my project please take a few moments to leave me a comment I'd love to hear what you think.
