Today is the start of the Stampinup new year and I have been in creative mood today. This creatively could be as it is World Card making Day. So celebrate by making some Happy New Year Cards of your own.
At last months retreat I joined loads of my Stampinup family and together we crafted. One of the make and takes from Sam Hammond was a card demonstrating a technique using Sliver Glimmer Paper under Window Sheets, coloured in with Blends.
I thought the effect was really pretty and the glimmer paper hides the adhesive too. So today I have been experimenting with this technique using different stamps and dies and Blends.
Hi, today a Peekaboo Slider Card, with inspiration from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts on YouTube I made this card. Originally I made the birthday one, one of the ladies in my class put flowers on the front of hers, and I thought I like that.
A friend of mine was asked to make a card for a 3 year old who loves Thomas the Tank Engine, who doesn’t! As I have said before I am not the most creative of people so I popped on to pintrest and youtube to seek inspiration. Patsy Waggoner had a great video and blog with just want I was looking for click here for her video. I play with Punch Art from time to time and pleased that I had the punches I needed.
Congratulations to my friend at work who has a new job (yes another one). Loving this crafty afternoon making this congratulations card for her. A fellow crafter posted a triple stamped card, so of course I had to give it a go and this is what I came up with.
I made this card using the following stamps and colours
The inks and card stock I used are Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo twist which are both retiring at the end of May so may not still be available, but I think it would still look great with different colours.
A friend of mine got a new job yesterday and I am going to miss her support at work, so of course I had to make her a card to congratulate her. I am not naturally a creative person so find inspiration from other stampin’ up demonstrators, I love that they all share projects. On Sam Johnson’s blog I saw a sketch she had used and decided to start with that.
I have used the Suite Sayings stamps as they are the ones I have just bought, stamps for all occasions. I was going to put flowers around the balloon, but that just wouldn’t have worked and then I remembered that the Sprinkles of Life set had a stamp that looks like clouds so with a sprinkle of glitter embossing I felt the clouds were perfect.
