Crafting Forever

Heya Stampers,

My card today is one we created last week in our class “Cards @ Toogoom“.  The ladies loved it & thought it was a perfect way to use up those bits of DSP hanging around, not 20170612_102411blog-insidedoing anything but sitting just in case…..

For me it was the perfect time to showcase the gorgeous “Crafting Forever” Stamp Set, Page 181 of the new Catalogue.  It has a couple of lovely images great for the male, female & kids.

I’ve used the “Playful Palette” DSP Stack (retired) but the perfect excuse to use most of the remaining pages.  You could easily change out the DSP, replace it with current DSP to achieve an entirely different look.

To highlight the DSP even further & for the colours to pop even more,  I allowed a small amount of Basic Black to show between each piece.

I didn’t colour the image as I thought the DSP was busy enough & didn’t want to take away from the DSP.  I did, however, “Paper Pieced” the vase with the same DSP.

To create your own card, just click on the link below to download the tutorial which includes all the product used & measurements (metric & imperial).  SU! Demonstrators are quiet welcome to use the tutorial for any of their classes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Hey, Girl

G’day Stampers,

My card today highlights  our Pretty Pattern Paper Tutorials which teaches you ways of using that gorgeous DSP you have sitting in your cupboards or on your shelves waiting to be used.

untitledAs this lovely stamp set “Hey, Girl” is retiring at the end of the month, I thought I would share a card I created  a couple of weeks ago featuring the Technique “Paper Piecing“.

I also wanted to share with you one of my more popular pins using the same lovely set, again using the “Paper Piecing” Technique, along with lots of colouring.  You can find the Free Tutorial for this card by clicking on the highlighted link.

For today’s card I Paper Pierced the top & skirt while I coloured her hair, skin, bows & shoes with a Blender Pen & Crumb Cake & Rose Red Inks.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Vivid Vases

I used a stamp set that has been sitting on my shelf for a couple of months now & must admit that it has never seen ink!  Today, Challenge-#3---AprilI decided that I wanted to create a card for one of my nieces & thought this would be perfect for the card.

Not only that I have “killed 2 birds with the 1 stone” – so to speak as I have used our challenge sketch & the colour “Purple” for the card.  Half way through I remembered that Amber loves purple, so strike #3!  I also decided to flip the sketch on its side so that I could use the stamp.  Love it when a plan comes together!

016wm-blog-insideI also did a couple of Techniques on my card – Paper Piecing & Heat Embossing.  I’ve actually embossed the image by inking in VersaMark & then Basic Grey prior to stamping the image.  I again did the same for the Vases.  I stamped the image onto a piece of DSP with VersaMark & Basic Grey & Clear Embossing Powder.  You can’t really notice in the photo but looks great in real life.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
