I'm off to my class in a mo but realised I'd forgotten to share the projects.
We'll be using the fab new Best of Flowers set which is the first in a line of Best of sets that Stampin' Up! are releasing to celebrate 25 years of SU! Each month they'll release a new one which features some favourite retired stamps & some new ones too.
They are only available in clear mount but are priced at only £13.95 so a bargain.
Anyway here's my projects using Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink (some to be retired), Very Vanilla and a hint of Wild Wasabi.
I've used a misting technique on the gift wallet which I learnt at the recent SU training in Telford from a fab demonstration by another demonstrator. Check out a video of the day here.
Last minute cards are always a pain aren't they, I had forgotten about a friends son's birthday & hadn't got a card ready no didn't have a lot of time so decided to change a card I already had.
The original card was a quite a girly card but I knew I could change that easily. I stamped the cute balloon and bunting from the Collage Curios set in Wisteria Wonder then punched out with a circle punch & layered them over the original design. I then cut strips of Wisteria Wonder card stock to cover the original border which was a bit girly too. I'm happy with the result & you'd never know that it started out as a girls card. Simples :)
After a fab class yesterday I've managed to have a crafty play today too.
I bought the Beyond Plaid set from the Spring mini as I loved the patterns straight away. Though I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it!
I stamped the image in Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue then punched out with the 1 1/4" punch to create the background. I used the Oval framelits to create the topper with the cute Itty Bitty butterfly punch & the left over bits of the stamping.
I'm really happy with how it's turned out & I can't wait to use the other patterns in the set.
