Alter your Stamps to Create Fun Backgrounds

We’re into a new week and despite being in lockdown I’ve just had the most brilliant weekend. I’ve had the pleasure of being on Craft Alive and the Be Inspired Online Market. If you are on Facebook, please join the market group to enjoy all the fun we are having with many vendors there. Please follow me on Facebook and subscribe to my YouTube channel where you can see all my videos.

This week I’m working with our range of colouring mediums. We have many and with our colour coordinated products, it’s so easy to create great projects.

Product of the Week Colouring mediums

Today I’m featuring our new product, Soft Pastels. This cute card uses a fun colour combo and the What’s Cookin’ bundle goes well with this as I think it’s very cheerful.

I had this idea of creating a background with the chef’s hats however they were all in a row. What was one to do, except cut them apart! Then I placed the 3 hats, at various angles on 1 Clear Block and inked them up in Coastal Cabana and I was able to quickly stamp a fun background.

It was my first time using the Soft Pastels. They are fun – it’s like being a kid again! Anyway, I tried something. I coloured the tag, which was die cut from Shimmery White cardstock, with the pastels. Then I used a Water Painter and this brightened up the colour. Some Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum on the back and this makes a great card to brighten someone’s day.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Case the Catty

Great to have you here for our Ink. Stamp. Share Blog hop. We are CASEing the Catalogue as our theme this month. Stampin’ Up! catalogues are a source of inspiration and countless times I draw on it for ideas with layouts, techniques, colour combinations and more.

To CASE is to Copy and Selectively Edit, giving credit to the original creator of the project. My CASE is from page 79 of the Annual Catalogue. This particular page features a stepped-up card from a Beginner project to a project suited to the more Avid crafter.

I chose the What’s Cookin’ Bundle to feature on my card. With cute images and sentiments perfect for adding on cards and your homemade goodies, this is such a fun set.

I embossed the label from the Hippo Dies and then coloured with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

Wanting a nice deep colour for the border, the Night of Navy Ombre Specialty DSP added the right amount of glimmer for this card. I’ve layered some ribbon on top of it and that velvet Mint Macaron ribbon is just so soft and beautiful. The tiles from the In Good Taste DSP are perfect for this baking inspired card.
