Firstly, I just want to share with you my very exciting news…… yes, I have re-signed as a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! I missed it so much during the 6 or so months when I wasn’t a demonstrator, and am really looking forward to getting back into sharing stamping and papercrafting with others. I have signed up under the fabulous Carolyn Bennie, and am also looking forward to getting to know her and her team.
Today’s card is a sketch challenge from Sunny Challenges, and one that I really like. Might just have to make another card using this sketch!
And part of the challenge was to use heat embossing as well. I have used heat embossing for the greeting here, and actually it was a bit more of a challenge that it should have been, as I am still trying to find my Heat Tool – probably still packed in a box from my move in December!! Although I thought all the important stuff ie stamping stuff, was together, so would have been the first things unpacked, but it’s in hiding. So I had to do heat embossing the old-fashioned way – that is, over the toaster! Yep that’s right – just make sure there is no toast in there first, otherwise you might get a fright when the toast pops out!
So, the stamp sets are Perfect Punches and Every Moment. I have done double layers of the watercoloured flowers here, then cut the second flower out and stuck in on over the bottom layer to give it some dimension. Here’s a close up so that you can see what I mean a little better……
The colours I have used are River Rock, Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum, Night of Navy and some Peach Parfait in the centre of the flowers to brighten it a little.
Hope you got some stamping time during your weekend.
