We all have some. Those pieces of DSP that we just pull out and admire and dream of the possibilities. I had one such piece and have seen many posts on Pinterest and Instagram using it beautifully. Still it remained uncut. Still dreaming.
Then I was asked to make a special 70th Birthday card so I relented and here it is. It is retired now but the combination of copper, glimmer and colour have been well combined in the new catalogue with these papers. I just don’t have mine yet!!
My DSP was the Affectionately Yours which is now retired, as is the Love and Affection Stamp Set I used on the inside. Thankfully Beautiful You on the front and the Large Number Framelits are still current.
Remember no question is ever wrong or unwarranted. Ask away.
As a demonstrator, the month of May often seems very long as I contain my desires and excitement for the new Products from the Annual Catalogue. Yes we get to have a play with some of them but not everything is available.
And play I have done. Some in preparation for Our Catalogue Launch with Irma Bradford, some for fun and some with my friend and upline Vicky Wright.
This is one of those created with Vicki who came up with the idea to use the Daisy punch for the skirt on this lady from the Beautiful You Stamp Set.
The petals were punched from the Delightful Daisy DSP. Her Top was colored with Water Coloring pencils but her hat was cut from the DSP and adhered.
The base card is – one of the new In colors, Tranquil Tide – a delightful soft grey green.
A sprinkling of Rhinstones and the New Glitter Enamel Dots helped to complete the top half of the card.
Again I used the same DSP and added a sentiment from Rose Wonder Stamp Set to complete the bottom.
The fold used is called a Dutch Door and is quiet popular at the moment as the top half – where we have our square – can be any shape and attached to the base card but not all the way across.
Call back as I will add here a link to a tutorial on Vicky Wrights Blog later.
Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for your patience this month and this delayed posting.
Finally, after much ado you are able to purchase this months Technique Treat. Hopefully you will have as much fun as I have had creating these delightful Techniques. They can be a bit messy but Hey! that’s part of the fun!
We have teamed the delicate looking “Falling in Love” Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue, with Marbled Papers, one using Shaving Cream the other Marbles, you can’t go wrong.
This set just begs to be used for all those occasions requiring a special look such as wedding, engagement, anniversary or a gift for your best friend.
We have our usual 4 cards for you to make but this month 3 techniques, one using Foam Shaving Cream and two for the Marbles, or sinkers or anything round.
Thank you for all your lovely comments from the last tutorial using the Beautiful You Stamp Set and we would love to hear how you may have used them, whether for yourself or a class.
Cheers, have fun
Have been playing with this delightful stamp set but not wanting to repeat what has been on Pinterest. There are some awesome examples of what you can do with the new stamp sets from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues on there but I like to use my creative brain when I can. After all the more I use it the less likely I am to get Alzheimers.
Now what was I talking about?
Oh yes the card below.
She was created by using Paper Piecing, to see how download the tutorial.
