I wanted to show you the card everyone got to make at my Open House events last weekend. I think everyone was happy with their results.
I wanted to showcase the Colorful Seasons Bundle as I had been playing a bit with it lately.
This card was inspired by a card by Patty Bennett. You can see her card HERE. I loved the idea of the sponged moon effect.
The card base was the lovely new Incolor Berry Burst with the Powder Pink. Instead of the ribbon that Patty used I added a scallop edge in Powder Pink using the Scallop Thinlit in the set. I added a little sparkle with a strip of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
To create the Sponged moon effect. Take a piece of copy paper cut to the size of the Whisper White card. Cut a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits to the left of the copy paper piece.
Place the piece of paper over the Whisper White card and carefully start sponging the Powder Pink ink inside the circle. Gradually making your way in to the centre of the circle. It is good to leave the centre a little lighter. TIP: If you haven’t used any removable adhesive on your paper then you need to hold the paper in place carefully with your fingers at the circle edge. Sponge in to the circle. Slowly move your fingers as you work around the circle to hold the paper down. If that makes sense??
Then take the Berry Burst inkpad and sponge a small section in the lower left corner. Then you can remove the piece of copy paper, stamp your sentiment and tree branch in Early Espresso and some flowers in Berry Burst. Assemble your card together, then cut a chair (love that chair!) in Berry Burst and some small flowers in Powder Pink.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a super stampy day/night wherever you are. Don’t forget to stop by and say HI. Tell me where you are from. I love to read how far this travels.
For Local Wollongong people: Come along and have a fun time creating and seeing lots of new products at my Catalogue Open House. I can’t wait to share it all with you. If you haven’t been before don’t be shy. We are nice people – I think. 😉
Bring a friend with you or if you can’t come why not pass the invite on to a friend. The more the merrier!
The details are below. Please reply early as seats book out very quickly.
Yes! Stampin’ Up! are so generous. New products choices have just been announced for Sale-A-Bration AND they are catalogue products. How cool is that! I will tell you about that but first I wanted to share this card for you using the Sale-A-Bration set Avant Garden.
I haven’t used this set nearly enough over the last few months. (Maybe I was a little discouraged because I have lost the little stamen stamp). Never mind, there are still some gorgeous creations you can make without that little stamp. This card is another card we are making at Card Class this Friday along with the Dragonfly card I shared last post. Check back on the earlier posts if you want to see that.
I was inspired by a card on Pinterest to stamp the flowers as a background. This card took a life of it’s own after that.
If you are in the Wollongong area come and join in the class this Friday 24th 10am or 7pm. Lots of fun and creativity.
Now to those new products Stampin’ Up! are offering.
For every $90 order you can choose one of these catalogue choices as your Free option. Here they are. Which choice do you like? Paper, Embossing Folder or the Washi Tape.
Just a note: If you are ordering Online (which is HERE by the way!) and you are choosing one of these please be sure to use the Item Codes shown below.
I need to get creating with this set more before it goes. How about you?
