Happy New Year

Happy New Year in October?

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.

The first card is Serene Garden stamp set and matching dies.

The second card is Lift Me up stamp set and dies.

The third card is Dragonfly Delights stamp set and dies.

 

I have to say I really love this technique, It is one that I will use a lot.

 

Stay Crafty

Sweet Storybook

The Sweet Storybook stamp set and coordinating storybook scene dies is such a sweet set. It can be bought as a bundle with a saving of 10%. These dies are very creative, you can either cut out the leaves or just the middle. This makes for a great demential cards, which the photo doesn’t really show.

I have matted and layered the green and white cardstock, with foam adhesive strip so that the mushroom sits behind. The mice and mushroom are 2 step stamps allowing you to colour in with a stamp different from the outline. The sentiment on this card is to cover a little smudge, I will be changing that before it is set out.
