Today I have had my Stamparatus class showing lots of fun ways to use this great new tool. I posted the projects we were making a couple of posts back but I thought I would show you more detail of one of the projects. I don’t often share the details of class projects but today I want to share it would you my lovely blog readers.
The Stamparatus is a great positioning tool for your stamping but it can do so many other fun techniques. I think my favourite is stamping in a circle. I created these 2 projects with them. The first one is the one we made in class and everyone loved it. I think this might have just sold them on it. 🙂
This one is using the Accented Blooms set. The tiny flower creates a lovely flower wreath. These were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. The White mat was embossed with the new Tufted Embossing Folder.
I was playing around with a few other ideas. This leaf is from the Colorful Seasons set. Wouldn’t this be a lovely idea for a Christmas card?? (filing away that idea so watch this space). 🙂
This is a mini card measuring 10cm x 10cm (4″x4″). The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Sentiments.
So how you do this?? There are lots of great tutorials online. Rather than me repeat it why not head to Allison’s Blog -> HERE and see the video.
Have fun with it. If you haven’t got one yet, you might just have to get one. 😉
I don’t often share personal things here on my blog as I don’t like to toot my horn but this is Stampin’ Up! related – and it is very exciting for me.
For those who follow me on Facebook and Instagram will know that recently I achieved a HUGE milestone. It was a big goal and for the most part out of my control. As a Demonstrator we can achieve different titles. This one has alluded me for 3 years. Although I had the team and the sales for some time I needed some other factors to come in to play. Anyway, last month I did it! I made Silver Elite.
It might not be big for you and you may not really care what the fuss is but for me this is big! Thank you to my customers and my team for helping me along the way – and for your support. I received my certificate yesterday in the mail which was exciting. Always good to receive Happy Mail. I also received some other Happy Mail this past week and that is what I wanted to share with you today. I received 2 special cards.
The first one was from my Upline Vanessa. This is using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper that I have been sharing lately but this is one of the other patterns from the pack.
This card was a lovely surprise. This is from one of my blog readers who has become a dear friend, Ruth. It was even in my favourite colour too. This is using the Love What You Do set with lots of lovely shiny silver embossed features. Thanks so much Ruth x
Thanks for indulging me. Thanks everyone for your love and support and visiting me often. ❤
See you again tomorrow.
I mentioned the Stitched Labels Framelits 2 posts back. Ooh! I am in love with these. I am sure you will love these. I have used the Stitched Shapes Framelits so much and these will be a nice addition. So I was playing with them again over the weekend. With these cards I used the “old” set Oh So Eclectic. And oh! another new love – Gorgeous Grape!!
Here are the cards.
I kept the layout the same on both. This first one is in Lovely Lipstick – one of the new Incolors.
The “stitched” background was cut with one of the dies in the set on a smaller piece of card than the card base. I did that twice. Once at the top and then at the bottom. The white card was cut with one of the ornate frame dies and the flower and leaves stamped from the Oh So Eclectic set was raised up on this. The sentiment is from the stamp set and stamped on Granny Apple Green card and cut with one of the label dies. A little Silver Thread was wrapped around and adhered on the back of it.
The Gorgeous Grape card was created in a similar way. Under the white diecut frame I added a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper that I had flagged the ends. I stamped 2 flowers from the Oh So Eclectic set. The outline was stamped in Gorgeous Grape and the inside was stamped in Highland Heather another new colour.
Here are the Stitched Labels Framelits. How nice are they???
It has some great dies for the sentiments and a few little ornate ones. The line ones I mentioned in the previous post. I found it helpful to use the rubber mat for the top plate in the Big Shot to reduce the line from the edge of the die. I will be using these dies a lot I think. You need these dies. 🙂
These are available in my store -> HERE now. $57 AUS Please use the Host Code: FRS6ZZ6G
