Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop - Monochrome

Image may contain: text

Welcome to our Ink. Stamp. Share Blog hop, we are a group of global Stampin' Up! Demonstrators sharing creative ideas and inspiration using current Stampin' Up! products. I'm Laura Mackie from the UK you may of joined me from Sandra's blog or you may be starting off here, which ever I'm sure your going to be inspired to go get your Stamp on and get inky! enjoy...


This month our theme is MONOCHROME not heard of it before this is the meaning but in our case card making / papercraft!! Ha!Ha!


Monochrome definition, a painting or drawing in different shades of a single colour 

 and here is what I've made



I've used the Beauty Abounds bundle - (Rubber Stamps and dies) to create my card, using the Smooshing Technique to create my background on Shimmery White cardstock using Grapefruit Grove ink. smooshing is a pretty forgiving technique and gives great variation of one colour - so perfect for this challenge.

I added some of the bokeh spots from the Stamp set in Grapefruit Grove ink to my background.

I 'smooshed' some more on an off cut off Shimmery white cardstock then die cut some butterflies from it, I wasn't overly fussy when clearing out the bits that hadn't popped out from the die cutting machine,  I liked the lighter block of shade its added!

I added a few sequins to embellish and finish off my card.


The Beauty Abounds Stamp set and Dies will carry over into the new catalogue however NOT as a Bundle enjoy a 10% saving only until 3rd June.

Like my smooshing technique?? I just love playing with this technique with one or more colours! check out my post and a video sharing the Smooshing Technique HERE

Baby Shower Gift and Gift Box

If you've been visiting my blog this week you'll have seen my baby shower posts! this is the last instalment and today I'm sharing my baby shower gift and gift box 

I made the gift box to hold 2 baby vest I made well not
 made but added vinyl too see them below!




The lid is made with Whisper White cardstock and then stamped in 
Balmy Blue using the First Steps Stamp set, the base is made with Crumb Cake cardstock 

the box measure 12cm x 12cm by 6cm high
I cut the cardstock to 29cm x 29cm then scored on all 4 sides at 1.5cm and 8.5cm

the lid 

cut cardstock too 24.2cm x 24.2cm
score on all 4 sides at 2cm and 4cm 

I lined the box base with balmy blue cardstock.

The bow is tied in Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, the tag was created in a word document and printed on to Whisper White cardstock then die cut with my circle dies.



I wrapped the vests individually in white tissue paper then laid gold tissue paper in the box to wrap around them both, I added a little sentiment inside the box too

here are the little vest which were inside! 


To create the vinyl wording I used my Brother Scan n Cut and cut the words out using 
Arteza Heat Vinyl HERE
The vinyl is great the pack is amazing such a great selection of colours!
and even better it is so easy to weed and then apply! and washes amazing!

Baby Shower Keepsake Frame




OMG! I loved making this! what a great guest book alternative!

the frame featured 2 baby scans, the date of the baby shower and lots of little embellishments! I made it like everything was pegged on with little gold pegs! tied with the Whisper White Polka Tulle all available via my online shop.

I made this as a Guest book alternative, so everyone who came to the baby shower wrote around the frame with well wishes to the new mummy to be! 


What a keepsake - I so wish I'd of had one of these at my Baby Shower! such a cute idea 


the Frame is from Ikea its a Ribba Frame in white measuring 50cm x 50cm 
costing £12 see the frame HERE

I used a 12x12 sheet of Balmy Blue cardstock for my base which fitted the large aperture perfectly!


We had gold and blue pens for everyone to write in so it matched the colour theme!


how amazing does it look!? 
Keepsake envy ALOT! hahah!!
my sister laughed and said best you have another baby then! but my baby days are done Miss P starts school in September and my son is nearly 14! sleepless nights are not something I long for anymore!! haha
