Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. I’m glad you are here and if it’s your first time here, I hope you find lots of inspiration to keep you coming back.
Today,I’m blog hopping with my demonstrator friends from the ESAD Facebook Group. We are sharing projects which will be farewelling products from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.
I’ve chosen the Seaside Notions stamp set and combined it with retiring and current product to create this beachy card. Every time there is a nautical or beachy stamp set, I always ‘need that’. So I’ve collected these stamp sets (a bit like collecting shells!).
The centre label was die cut with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from one of the note cards in the Sweet Little Valentines Cards & More. This is one of the hidden gems in the current Mini Catalogue. The cards are printed on the front and back so you can stretch this out by cutting them in half to get more . You can see some other cards I made using this mini card pack here.
I stamped the sea horse and shells in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Fluid 100 Watercolour paper. Then using Water Painters, they were coloured with Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral.
For the background I used the Emboss Resist Technique, heat embossing some of the coral with White Embossing Powder. Then I lightly blended some Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral over this, rubbing back over the image with a tissue to show up the embossing.
The sentiment was stamped on the other half of the notecard in the pack.
I hope you’ve enjoyed what I shared and are inspired to work with some (or all) of these products. Make sure you go around the hop as you will enjoy lots of beautiful creations. As you go around, please leave us a comment as we value your feedback.
