Kylie's Go For Greece April Blog Hop

Kylie's Go For Greece Blog Hop....
 Hello & welcome to my blog My name is Donna Gray I am an Independent Stampin Up!®Demonstrator from the Northern Rivers Area in New South Wales Australia I have been crafting for many years but I made the great decision to join Stampin Up! nearly 2 years ago now I must say it has been one of the best decisions I have made in the last few years
So a group of us demonstrators from all over the world are taking part in a training program to help us run our Stampin Up business by giving us business tips Live talks with successful business & setting us challenges to get us out of our comfort zones to try new things to see if it makes our Stampin Up businesses improve
One of the challenges to push us out of our comfort zone is to participate in this blog hop 
There are so many new items coming in our new catalogue that I really wanted to use them but I decided that was not a good idea as you would be very eager to get your hands on them but unfortunately they are not available til June so I used two of my favorite sets to make these cards for this blog hop...

The card on the left I used a favorite stamp set Big on Birthdays & as you will see the ombre effect on the large birthday sentiment This effect can be used with many large sentiments even flowers You can achieve the look simply by choosing 3 depths of coloured ink pads with the same tone For this card I chose Lemon Lime Twist Bermuda Bay & Island Indigo 
You start with the lightest ink pad first & ink up the whole stamp then with the next darkest ink only the bottom 2/3's & then the darkest ink just the bottom 1/3 of the sentiment Then stamp down as normal I also used the Touches Of Texture Stamp set to create a textured background on my Lemon Lime twist layer using my bermuda bay ink I finished it of with some of our adhesive backed sequins & some of the new black cord that will be coming in our new catalogue
 For the card on the right I used the Touches of Texture stamp set that you will notices has lots of textured stamps but also has some lovely flower stamps as well I used a card base of Daffodil Delight
& layers of Flirty Flamingo & whisper white
I used a combination of Soft Suede Daffodil Delight Calypso Coral & Cajun Craze ink pads & stamped the sentiment in Black Archival Ink I then finished it off using the new Crumb Cake bakers twine & the faceted gems that will be coming in our new catalogue
I also did a live video showing how I created these cards as well as another card using the Tranquil Tulips Host Set
