The weather this weekend has been absolutely miserable and I didn't feel guilty for once popping into the craftroom to create. With the heater on the room was nice and cosy and the first stamp I thought of was Colorful Seasons as it is full of images that suit any season in the year.
I used shimmery white cardstock to water wash three colours - Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Pool Party across the card topper. I did 3 layers of water colouring over each section to achieve the look I wanted.
I splattered water over parts of the dry card (very hard to see in the photos and patted it gently with a paper towel to remove the excess water). Now I'm not the most patient person and I quickly stamped my greeting on the right hand side of the card and shock horror!! My card wasn't dry and the greeting had "bled" everywhere!
Not wanting to go back to square one I took out one of the stitched framelits and quickly covered my mistake and popped a die cut chair on the s…
As a demo we get to order about a month or so before the new catalogue comes out. As I had attended a Stampin' Up event in Auckland in April I was able to order some of the new goodies super early!
One of the cards we made at the SU On Stage event was using the new daisy punch and stamp set, so I thought I would CASE (copy and share everything) using the new in colours.
I used the same design on all the cards but the finished result is quite different depending on the cards base you use. It was super easy and quick to make them all and I now have 10 cards ready to be posted out/given out when needed.
The new in colours are:
Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide and will be available for purchasing on 1 June 2017.
It's been a very long time since I blogged and a lot has happened in that time. I broke my shoulder in May 2015 and have finally had a second surgery in March 2017 which has meant l now have nearly full moment in my left arm and also a lot less pain. It also means that I can actually spend some time in the craftroom.
I have just returned from Auckland having attended On Stage. This is an event run in April and November by Stampin Up and is for demonstrators only. It's a great opportunity to catch up with and make new friends who all share a common passion. It is also an opportunity to learn new things, see new product and you come away very inspired. If you've ever thought about being a demo send me an email and I can provide you with all the information required to sign up. I joined in April 2007 and celebrate 10 years in October .....yay!
On Friday I was able to hang out in the craftroom and play with the Cool Treats Suite which sadly I purchased some time ago but had ye…
