Today, my husband and son (No:3) have gone to Campbelltown, the other son(no:4) is at work…so I have the house too myself for a few hours. So I have been having fun playing with new products and different techniques.
The first product I have been playing with is the new Embossing Paste 141979 and Pattern Decorative Masks 144103 that Stampin’ Up! brought out in this years Annual Catalogue. It is so easy and fun to use, make sure you have a look at the great video by Stampin’ Up! HERE
I ended up making 2 card fronts, one using the medallion mask and another with the diamond mask. I left the paste white and used night of Navy cardstock as my card front. This was then attached to card bases cut from Whisper White Cardstock.
The other is the Carols of Christmas Stamps 144804 from Stampin’ Up!….in this set I used the “Peace on Earth” Stamp and I used three colours to to colour the stamp.
How did I do this....
I started by inking up the top portion of the stamp with the lightest colour. in this case being Flirty Flamingo. Then I inked up the next 2/3’s of stamp with Bermuda Bay. The bottom part of the stamp I inked up with Night of Navy and as Night of Navy is the darkest colour it didn’t matter that I was going over the Bermuda Bay. Using the Bermuda bay Stampin Write Marker I blended the lines a little. A couple of breaths onto the stamp to re-moist the ink again and then stamp onto cardstock.
Using Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay cardstock and a NEW Designer Series Paper (soon to be released) I layered some banners and adhered to the card front. The Peace on Earth was attached with dimmensionals.
I made this card as part of the Global Design Project Colour Challenge #101
