Hello! We all made it to the end of the week! How was yours? I’ve had a really lovely week filled with work, stamping, and family – all of which brought me great happiness.
I’ve also had the pleasure of sharing quite a few projects with you this week as part of my design team commitments and tonight’s a fabulous hop with my Paper Adventures Team. The theme is ‘In with the new’ and I can’t wait for the team to show you all the ‘new’ crafting they’ve been doing.
We welcome my gorgeous friend Narelle Farrugia, Artisan Design Team alumni, as our guest designer. Thanks for joining us Narelle – so great to have you share your talents on our blog hop.
My project from today uses my very favourite suite from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue – Expressions in Ink. I love every part of this – the stamp set (great sentiments), the die set (amazing centrepiece die), the DSP (oh my – watercolour!) and the ephemera pack (bling!).
I used all the elements of the suite to make this sweet card for a new team member who joined our Paper Adventures team during the Join+ promotion. Christine purchased her Starter Kit for $169 and received $283 of her favourite Stampin’ Up! products with free shipping and a discount on all her future purchases until at least the end of October 2021. If you’d like to take advantage of this great offer, click here to join.
The big floral die in the Artistic Dies adds a wonderful wow factor to all your projects. You can use it plain, cut the pieces apart or add stamped flowers behind the die cut like I have in this card.
The dies in the set also cut the stamped flowers and leaves from the coordinating Artistically Inked stamp set. This set has a watercolour effect. Christina Wrede shared a great tip on Instagram during the week to apply ink to your watercolour style stamps with a blending brush. I found that a combination of techniques worked for me – inking directly from the ink pad and then smoothing the ink out with a blending brush was perfect.
The DSP has gold foiling on one side of each of the patterns – it’s so wonderfully deluxe! The ephemera pack has gold die cut accents and adhesive backed sequins that add the perfect finishing touch to all your projects. Stampin’ Up! have kindly provided a suite code – 155459 – for this great product range – making it easy to order it all at once (because you know you *need* it!).
