Thank you for joining me today as I am once again playing along with the May Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop where we are saying goodbye to the 2018-2019 Annual Catalgue. This way we get to play with some of our favourites one last time .
We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! We would love for you to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.
If you have come from seeing Jenn’s lovely creation, thank you for visiting. It is much appreciated.
I wanted to play with Lovely as a Tree but of course when the time come couldn’t put my hand on it. So I opted for Sheltering Tree which is another retiring. I’ve teamed it up with the 2017-2019 In Colours which are also going!
The tree was stamped in Fresh Fig – only in error – but I love it! The leaves were inked in Lemon Lime Twist & then Fresh Fig & Tranquil Tide daubed on with a Sponge Dauber.
If you have started from me, then next up is Tracy. In the event that you get lost, there is a Roll Call of everyone playing along below or you can click on the NEXT ARROW to be taken to the next blog.
My post today is a very simple one but I think the colours of Fresh Fig & Flirty Flamingo make it pop! I wasn’t sure how the 2 colours would work together but I think they compliment each other. It is also one of the cards we created in our class last Friday.
This set is from 2018 Sale-A-Bration & is the new Stampin’ Up! “DistINKive” Stamp Set! The floral image lays down your ink at different opacities giving the image of a photograph. If you haven’t seen the video, check it out here –
If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a tutorial for you to create your own card. The tutorial includes list of products & measurements, both metric & imperial.
I thought I would share with you a card I did some time ago to highlight our Technique Treats – Sponging but never got round to sharing it.
To create my card I sponged Watermelon Wonder, Hello Honey & Tip Top Taupe Inks directly onto a piece of Whisper White Card. I then spritzed water over the top with a Stampin’ Sprizter. The trees from “Lovely as a Tree” were stamped directly over the top using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I then layered the sponged card onto a piece of Tip Top Taupe Card before layering direct onto a piece of Whisper White. The sentiment was stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
A piece of Linen Thread was wrapped twice around the card tying a small bow before being layered onto Base Card – Watermelon Wonder.
It’s a very simple card but one with a bit of a punch, I think.
Hello Honey has since been retired but you could subsitite the colour for Delighful Dijon or Crushed Curry.
Don’t forget, you are able to purchase this Technique from our Technique Teats Page to create 4 more cards using the Sponging Technique & “Lovely as a Tree” Stamp Set.
