COLOURING THE SPRINGTIME FOILS PAPER – PART 1!

The Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper has been HUGELY popular for Sale-A-Bration.  Have you got it yet?  You really have to jump on this THIS WEEK as Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end on Saturday. Here is the gorgeous paper if you haven’t seen it.

For the next 3 posts I thought I would show you different ways you can colour the paper.  Of course it is very elegant and classy just left on it’s own too.

For these cards I coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends.  They glide on so easily.

For the card above I used the Dark Pink Pirouette in the centres and the Light Rich Razzleberry in the edges.  The leaves were Old Olive.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Day and embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I had to finish it with a few loops of Gold Thread.

The card below was coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. (Don’t look too closely 😉 )

The coloured piece was adhered to a mat from Gold Foil. I embossed the white piece in the top 2/3 of the Whisper White card piece.  Tying around some Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon.  The sentiment is from another Sale-A-Bration set Heartfelt Blooms.  It was all adhered to an Old Olive Card base.

Stop by again tomorrow for Part 2 colouring with the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #13 – HEARTFELT BLOOMS!

Watch It Wednesday’s and Wednesday’s WOW! are back for 2018.  I have decided to combine them both in to Wednesday’s WOW! Each Wednesday I will bring you a stamping WOW! It might be a video, a tip, a product that has caught my attention or a special project.  I hope you enjoy these episodes.  You never know what I might uncover.

Today we have Wednesday WOW! #13. 

Do you find sometimes you go through a catalogue and see a stamp or maybe a die set and think Mmm? Maybe? But it doesn’t really do it for you.  I found that with the Sale-A-Bration set Heartfelt Blooms.  Another flower set and the flowers weren’t all that exciting.  What do you do with a stamp like that??? 

Well! I have been watching this little sleeper over the last few weeks and I have to say I am quite surprised with what this stamp can do.  Firstly, this stamp is a different type of stamp.  It is a “distinktive” stamp.  Meaning that the stamp lays down the ink at different opacities.  So you get different depths of colour.  It gives a Photographic finish.  Clever!

Stampin’ Up! have recently released a Youtube video highlighting this stamp.  I was impressed.  I thought I would share it with you if you hadn’t noticed it.

What do you think of this stamp?  I would love to see some of your cards using this set.  Why not email them to me and I might just share them here. (I might event send out a random prize of some handmade cards).  I have just got this set so I look forward to playing with it.

There are so many different ways that people have used this set.  Some people have coloured it with pencils, or with ink and daubers.  They have cut and layered the flowers.  If you want some inspiration, I have put together a Pinterest Board with this set.  Head on over -> HERE to see them.

Now this stamp is a Free one.  Really! Grab this as one of your Free Sale-A-Bration choices when your order reaches $90 AUS.  Available in Wood and Clear Mount. See it in store now -> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WHAT IS STAMPIN’ UP! ABOUT THEN??

 

(If you receive this blog update as an email and you can’t see the image above then please pop over to the actual blog post and check it out).  

I posted the image above on my Facebook Business page last week.  It created a lot of discussion and lots of interesting statements of what people felt Stampin’  Up! is about.  I thought I would share it all here and I would love to hear what you think PLUS I am going to draw someone at random to receive a prize.

Some of the things people on my Facebook page felt Stampin’  Up! was about to them is:

  • Creativity – through stamps, ink, papers, sharing ideas and inspiring each other.
  • Fun.
  • Making a difference in people’s lives.  (Changing lives and enriching lives). This can be through sharing stamping with others and helping them feel excited about it. Also, giving support to them maybe through fundraising or help.
  • Memories – making them during events and get together’s and preserving our memories by scrapbooking them.
  • Relaxing and providing a “time out” for you.
  • Friendships – This was the most popular.  It draws people in to share a common hobby/past-time.  As a result friendships are formed and these can be long-lasting.  For me personally, I have made friends with people from all over the world and I am very thankful for that.  I wouldn’t have “met” them if it wasn’t for Stampin’  Up!

 

So, can you add anything else?? Why not drop me a comment and tell me your thoughts and what Stampin’  Up! means to you.  Whether you are a Demonstrator or a customer. You might feel the same way as those mentioned above or it might be something else.
