A get-together with a group of friends who are also Stampin' Up Demonstrators gave me a chance to play with some of the new catalogue products that I haven't ordered (yet). I was lucky enough to try some new colour combos with the Wildflower Meadow Stamp and Embossing Folder.
This first card uses one of my favourite new In Colours for 2013-2015, Strawberry Slush, and was very quick and easy to make. . .
|Stamps||Wildflower Meadow, Mixed Medley (hostess, retired)|
|Card stock & Papers||Whisper White, Strawberry Slush|
|Tools||Fancy Flower Punch, 11/4 Scallop Circle Punch, 3/4 Circle Punch, Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder, Big Shot|
The second card uses another In Colour, Crisp Cantaloupe - don't you just want to eat these colours - I love the names, and also allowed me to have a play with the Simply Pressed Clay. I made the flower in white and then mixed re-inker with Crystal Effects and painted it on the top. The card was another quick and easy one, but the clay does take a day or so to dry. I find it easier to have lots of flowers and buttons made in advance and then I can just colour them as needed. You can also colour them with the ink pads or markers, so they are very versatile.
|Card stock & Papers||Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe|
|Ink||Crisp Cantaloupe - Pad and Re-Inker|
|Accessories||Pearls, Simply Pressed Clay Flower, Whisper White Satin Ribbon|
|Tools||Glue Gun, Crystal Effects, Wildflower Meadows Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Scissors|
The final card did take a little longer to make as I used the Markers to colour the stamp, however I think the effort was worth it. I have seen it coloured in various combinations and you get quite a different look depending on the colours you use.
|Stamps||Wildflower Meadow, Pretty Petites (Retired)|
|Card stock & Papers||Whisper White, Marina Mist|
|Ink||Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Blushing Bride Markers|
|Accessories||Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals|
|Tools||Wildflower Meadows Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Petite Curly Label Punch|
I hope you have enjoyed looking at these cards and please contact me if you would like to order any of the products featured in them, or to book into a class to make some of your own creations.
Thanks and Happy Stampin'
