Aim For Alaska Blog Hop - Catalogue Sneak peek



Image may contain: mountain, sky, outdoor, nature and water


Hello everyone and welcome once again to KOCreations Cards ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Today I am taking part in a special group blog hop - The 'Aim for Alaska' blog hop. 
This is a Face Book training group for Stampin' Up!® demonstrators that is available through Kylie Bertucci to help you achieve your goals of the incentive trip and more...
What is that saying "Reach for ther stars!" Well I am reaching and aiming high! It might take me a few years but I am determined to achieve this one day!
To help us Kylie invites prominent and succesful SU demonstrators to talk about their experiences and share what has worked/not worked for them. This is one of the things that I most enjoy, learning from those that have been there and seen what works and also what doesn't. We get to learn from their experience PLUS they are willing to share the information!
 If you want to join this group please use this link SIGN ME UP FOR AIM FOR ALASKA TRAINING GROUP

I have a list of other blog hop particopants closer to the end of my blog.
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver (Australia)

Okay enough chit chat ๐Ÿ˜† on to the reason for the blog hop. 
The new 2017-2018 catalogue release and some of the gorgeous products soon to be released!!!

Here is my project!

Cottage Garden


#KOCreationscards #daisydelight #colortheory #sticthedshapesframelits #minichevronribbon #stampinup #Loveitchopit
I think this card would be perfect card for a class....Hmmm gives me an idea lol. 
Plus it's awesome for #Loveitchopit too! 
If you love your paper, chop it and use it! 
Create something beautiful with it ๐Ÿ˜

Items Used

  1. The new 'Colour Theory' DSP (144194) This comes in four glorious colours blended with Whisper White. Those colours are Berry Burst, Old Olive (which I have used for my card), Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim.
  2. I have also used the new Daisy Delight stamp set (143669) I am LOVING this!!
  3. My card base is Old Olive  card stock (106576) folded in half and cut at 10.5cm.
  4. I have used another NEW PRODUCT the Mini Chevron ribbon in co-ordinating Old Olive (144196)


On a side note, I am currently playing with a new watermark (above) compared to the old one (below) I would love some feedback if you can spare some time...TIA

#KOCreationscards #daisydelight #colortheory #sticthedshapesframelits #minichevronribbon #stampinup #Loveitchopit

METHOD

For my card front using crackled DSP, I first glued thick Whisper White to the back of it. I then trimmed it to size. I used my Stitched Shapes Framleits to cut out my focal window, but making sure I had the Whisper White face up. This way the stitches are visible and help to frame my stamped images.
I then nested a layering Oval with the Stiched shape oval and cut a Old Olive frame for my focal area.

I stamped my images onto the whisper white side. 
I placed my ribbon onto the card front and I adhered it all onto the card base using dimensionals. 
I then glued the stamped images into place straight onto the card base..

Delightful Daisy - Birthday Daisy


Welcome back crafters ๐Ÿ˜Š
As I promised in my previous blog post I am back to share with you a couple of cards made with the offcuts of the DSP from the CC blog hop...
You can see those cards HERE 

I used a couple of scrappy bits of ribbon and a couple of Stitched shape frames along with a doily folded in half for a little lacey feel.

Here are my cards

Old Olive Birthday


#happybirthday #KOCreationscards #Daisydelight #Delightfuldaisy #Craftboxes #facetedgems 
The card bases have been made using an A4 sheet of card stock folded in half and cut at 10.5 cm. The card stock colours are Old Olive and Calypso Coral.

I have added some silver metallic thread to the back of my Daisies. 
You can see how I made my Daisies by clicking HERE

For a little bling I have added some rhinestone jewels to the focal area, but I kept them tight around the focal leaving a whole area of card that is nice an clean.

Calypso Coral Birthday


#happybirthday #KOCreationscards #Daisydelight #Delightfuldaisy #Craftboxes #facetedgems


For the card above the only difference other than colour, is that I used an embossing folder called Petal Burst to give a little extra interest to the background.

For the inside of each card I added a piece of whisper white card stock for writing a personal message.

 I do hope you have enjoyed it and found some inspiration too.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Special Guest Nadine Kรถler






Image may contain: text

Welcome back to one of my favourite blog hops. 
Kylie Berucci's Blog Hops is how I first started learning about blog hops and participating in them. 
Today we are all showcasing the stunning works of Nadine Kรถler each of us choose a project of hers and CASE it.
What is CASEing
Casing is where we Copy And Selective Edit a project. You can copy everything or only selected parts of a card and then share exactly where you got your inspiration from.
 You are here with me Kim Oliver. 
There is a list of all other paticipants towards the end of my blog.

This is the project I have chosen to CASE


It is a Clean and Simple (CAS) design. 
I adore CAS designs for quick and pretty cards, but I have to admit I am not very good at CAS.
But I keep practising ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Here are my Projects 



I used my favourite suite for these cards.
Can you guess which it is? lol
 It's the Delightful Daisy suite.
The DSP is divine and that Daisy punch WOW it creates flowers that are just gorgeous!

The Delightful Daisy suite will be available in my online store from the 1st of June.

Forever Young




This was the first card I created for this hop.
As you can see I chose to keep the basic layout that Nadine has used for her card.
All I did was cut a rectangle using the square stitched shapes framleits. I then punched out the daisy and backed onto Daffodil Delight.
I added a DD centre to the flower using the Blossom Builder punch and topped this with a silver faceted gem. I added a Silver embossed sentiment and a few diamantes to finish this CAS card.

I liked it so much I did it again in Calypso Coral below.

You Look Gorgeous!


The above card is exactly the same just different colour. Calypso Coral and Powder Pink are teh colours used for this card.

I still hadn't finished with this design!
 I decided I would step it up by adding an embossed background.

I would love to know which design you prefer (for me it's the steped up cards).
The embossing folder I used is called Petal Burst.
I also die cut my daisies in white, shaped them and daubed colour onto them to match the cards colour panel.

It's Your Day


The coloured DSP has been backed and adhered to my embossed base using dimensionals.
I added silver metallic thread under the  flowers.
The flowers have been given a little more lift by popping them up on a dimensional..
Like my Daisy
Click HERE to watch how they are made!

Make  A Wish


Just to finish these stepped up cards I added some Rhinestone Diamantes areound the embossed sentiments.

I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today.
Here is the list of all the other participants that have taken part in this wonderful blog hop..






If you have reached the end then I do hope you have found some inspiration too.

Thank you so much for visiting today.
If you have any questions please ask in comments below.
Or you can tell me what you think of my efforts today, I would love to hear from you ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ooooh I nearly forgot to mention I made a couple of extra cards from some of the scrappy bits. I will share these with you all tomorrow.
Bye for now and have a great day x

Ink It! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop - Congrats


No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to our very first first Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. How exciting ๐Ÿ˜Š
This month we will be sharing projects inspired by the theme 'Congrats' using NEW catalogue products.
#inkitstampit
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver of Australia. I am an Independant Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator with a passion for creating, teaching my craft and sharing what I create to make others happy.
I can honestly say I am feeling really blessed to be part of this design team.
You will find a list of other talented members for this Blog Hop closer to the end of my post.
Just click the name after mine ๐Ÿ˜‰
My project today has been created with a wedding in mind.

I have used the 'Delightful Daisy' Suite and a new in colour Tranquil Tide.

The design I used is perfect for #Loveitchopit!
Something I am practising more of these days.
I have a huge stash of DSP that I am slowly chopping and munching through!

Here is my project

Tranquil Daisy

#Delightfuldaisysuite #Weddings #Loveitchopit #KOCreationscards #Rubberstamping #Stampinup #Daisydelight #Love #Colorfulseasons #inkitstampit


I just adore this gorgeous floral suite. It is perfect for almost any occasion. 
This gorgeous double sided DSP has matching stamp set that also has available a daisy punch! 
You can create your own style of daisies using this awesome punch. 
Me I love gerbera daisies ๐Ÿ˜

The Delightful Daisy suite goes perfectly with the new faceted gems that Stampin' Up! are now carrying in the new catalogue. They are available in silver (pictured) and gold. There is also a sweet double sided double stitched ribbon in the Delightful Daffodil colour that you can use with this stunning suite. 
You can see a small piece of that ribbon looped behind my daisy along with some black metallic thread....

Angled and Inside view

#Delightfuldaisysuite #Weddings #Loveitchopit #KOCreationscards #Rubberstamping #Stampinup #Daisydelight #Love #Colorfulseasons

For the sentiment and the inside of my card I used the 'Colourful Seasons' stamp set and the co-ordinateing thinlit dies called 'Seasonal Layers'.
The sentiment has been stamped in Tranquil Tide ink onto a square made using the Stitched Shape framelits and thick Whisper White. This has been backed with a tranquil tide square cut using a scalloped layering squares Framelits. These framelits co-ordinate perfectly with each other.
The small tag has been stamped using the Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
I double stamped this in Delightful Daisy and Tranquil Tide.

Thank you for stopping by my blog during this wonderful hop.
I do hope you found it inspiring.
Please keep hopping through the blogs to see more wonderful projects using our new products.

Eastern Palace Suite - Funky Window Flowers

Welcome back crafty people ๐Ÿ˜Š

I was having a little play with my Eastern Palace Suite this morning before I went away.
Just mucking around stamping circular patterns on some Vanilla cards stock that I had cut out a flower  nested pattern on.
I had seen it done numerous times and wanted to seewhat I could do with it.
I liked what I was seeing so I kept going. 
I ended up making 3 seperate cards, each one slightly different from the first. 
They windows I have created reminded me of bright and funky flowers.

Here they are

Funky Window Flowers


#easternpalacesuite #KOCreationscards #easternbeauty #windowcard #nestingdies #lemonlimetwist #dapperdenim #berryburst #rubberstamping #stampinup

For these cards I used Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist, one has a touch of Berry Burst 

Enjoy Today


The cards above and below are window cards. 
I used the flower shaped die to nested with 2 other circular dies that fit inside to create a window in the Very Vanilla layer. 
I added a Lemon Lime DSP collar to add the lime layer behind.
The Lemon Lime DSP has been die cut using the flower shaped die and then a layering circle die on the inner piece. I then snipped it from the DSP with my paper snips. I cut one side and wrapped it around the outside under the petals of the vanilla inlay.
I added a dapper denim circle cut using the same die as the vanilla layer but I also used a layering circle to keep the window open.

Hello


I used more Lemon Lime Twist on this card and also used the star shaped inner die, this created a slightly different window.

Berry Burst Hello


And lastly for this card I started the same as the other two, but I added a left over scrap circle behind the window making it a pattern with the Lemon Lime as a contrasting colour, not a window.
The addition of the Berry Burst for this card just makes it a little brighter and gives it a little lift, don't you agree?
I lifted the front of this card with dimensionals also.

Thank you for stopping by today. If you are looking to purchase the items I used to create this set then NOW is the time to do it!
You can order 2 different size bundles atm and you get free items in each size!
Great value for your money!

Don't forget the MAY Hostess Code if purchasing from me.
