I was having a Christmas Card marathon and then my Stampin’ Up! order arrived.
Happy Day! Along with goodies for the girls, I ordered the Stitched from the Heart Framelits., our November Special with %25 off selected stamps as well. I had (as we all do now and then) just made a blob of ink in the wrong place and was Grrrring at myself when inspiration struck.
I grabbed the framelits, some This Christmas DSP and proceeded to mix and match and this is what resulted. I was quiet happy at the rescue and who would know! The stitched impression is right next to the edge and very fine. Matching perfectly with the Layering Circles and Ovals.
Remember it’s not the only way to get a stitched effect. Check out our Technique Treats #10 for Faux Stitching.
“Waste not want not!” my Mother said.
Bye catch you next time.
I had to look up the International timeline today to make sure somewhere in the world it is Saturday!! Because SATURDAY, 1st of the month, is when you lucky people can purchase our delightful Techniques Treats . I missed yesterday here in Australia but better ‘late then never’ as the saying goes. Apologies to those of you who checked in yesterday.
As you can see by the image we are bringing you two great techniques that are highlighted in Christmas cards. Certainly international cards need to be in the post very soon to reach your loved ones in time for the Happy Holiday.
We bring you the Faux Silk and Faux Stitching this month together with the stamp sets Reason for the Season and Embellished Ornaments.
As we always seek to listen to what our customers want and make any necessary changes we are happy to assure you that you are welcome to use these in classes and demonstrations. In fact they are ideal as all the work is done for you!
Just read the list of benefits to see why I say that! Follow the precise instructions, make your demonstration card, cut your kits, then on the class day just set up your iPad and refer to the PDF if necessary, no more need for notes. How simple and a fantastic time saver!
Let us know how you get on, or better yet send us some pics of your classes and we will post on Pinterest.
