Welcome to the December 2021 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Our theme this month is “My Favourite Stampin’ Up! product”. I find it very difficult to narrow it down to my favourite product. I think it depends on my mood, the day and what type pf project I am working on.
At the moment, I am loving new stuff. Today my cards will be giving you a sneak peek of a new stamp set, a new Sale-A-Bration offering and some new embellishments – they come together to make my favourite (for the moment) cards!
In The Moment stamp set has 3 different images – the one I have used for my cards, a lady looking out of the window holding a coffee cup and the third one is a lady relaxing on a bed with her dog reading a book. The sentiments offer words of encouragement. This is a lovely stamp set to send a card to a friend.
The DSP is called Simply Marbleous, and you will definitely want to chose that as a
Sale-A-Bration reward. The pack has pink, blue, green, yellow, purple and green sheets in it. One side has a soft marble look and the other is a darker shade with lots of swirls.
Stamp the lady into your circle. Stamp another one onto a post it note and cut it out. Cover the image on the circle with the post it note and colour over ith with Balmy Blue and a blending brush. Stamp the image onto your DSP and cut out the dress. Be sure to cut the bottom of the dress longer so that it will come down to the bottom of the circle. I used the grey and yellow DSP for the hats, but you could use the same colour as the dress. Stick the DSP onto your image on the circle and colour the rest of it with your Stampin’ blends,
For this card I cut two strips at 1.0cm (3/8″) and one strip 1.5cm (3/4″).
For the second card i decided to layer the design onto a Blushing Bride card base. I cut my DSP 9.5cm x 9.5cm (3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″) and then cut it from corner to corner to make 2 triangles. The finishing bling is the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Gems.
