Breezing around the net, looking at weddings, cafe’s sign, and crafty places one thing you see are a lot of are chalk boards and signage. It is on “trend” as they say and so will you be when you apply this technique to your cards and scrap booking layouts.
How do I do that you ask? Well we are bringing you how to create with the Chalkboard and Shadow Techniques.
We have used the “Carousel Birthday” Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I have posted other cards here, using this versatile stamp but I think these Techniques really compliment the stamps well. The fun of the carnival in town, before television and the internet exploded our sense, was a much longed for event, well reflected in this stamp set. Nostalgia abounds. Even my granddaughter has a tiny carousel in her toy collection!
We are consistent in making sure that each step in the card making is photographed and fully described for easy following. With ease of use on our minds for you we have decided to separate the measurements under imperial and metric headings to make it easier for you to follow in all the far flung lands.
As always you are invited to use these techniques for class or just for yourself. Everything you need is written down for you. Just supply the paper, inks and stamps and get creating!
Enjoy, there’s no time like the present, get your copy now!
Happy Creating! Naomi.
Before I launch into this months Techniques, (which holds a surprise for you all) I would like to thank Alex at the Hosanna Farm Stay just over the NSW border for making our time there so enjoyable. And yes! I did jump off the 3 meter diving board. Check the farm out when you can put your crafting aside, it is a very family friendly, relaxed (I needed that) country place.
So what’s the surprise!
Having listened to you, our dedicated support group, we will be including a full photo view of the cards we make from this month ……..you can also look back to a few months ago to see what was behind the sneak peeks then as well. Vicky is working hard on bringing you the updated images.
As well, if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrators you can now just purchase your next class all neat and tidy for you to run with, all the hard work done.
This month sees the fantastic Technique Heat and Stick that just adds so much bling to any card. I’m sitting here, looking at them, and feeling for you as the images don’t do the wonderful dazzle justice. So much more beautiful in real life, as is the Wink of Stella. Those who have used it know this all to well.
Our other Technique is using Masks and we again have extra tutorials for you because there are so many wonderful ways to use masks. We have touched on only a couple with other suggestions on how to use them in your cards. There are 4 new ones in the Holiday catalogue, just begging for you to try them.
We combined the techniques with the Peace this Christmas Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalogue. Christmas is coming at us fast. Time to get those cards made!!!
Hope you enjoy this change in our presentations. Let me know what you think. We aim to please!
Cheers, a rested Naomi!
