Our Paper Adventures team got together on the weekend for a team meeting. We tend to do this every 6 weeks so we can chat Stampin’ Up!, check in with each other and get crafty!
This meeting was hosted by the lovely Joanne. She chose a Christmas in July theme, spoiling us with Christmas gifts and a gorgeous 3D make & take card.
Each meeting we have the option to bring along cards that we share (swap) with other, so we can be inspired by the creativity of others.
I recently had Dandelion Wishes delivered and wanted to get it inky. The images & font in this set are lovely!
I used my stamparatus to ink the sentiment in colour first and then again in Versamark so I could heat set it with clear embossing powder. This gives it a slightly darker tone of the same colour and a pretty shiny finish!
This stamp set is a wonderful match with the Bokeh Dots stamp set. I used the sparkle stamp to create the background. Many people have been surprised when this stamp has arrived that it’s small (about 8 x 5.5cm) when stamped. I cut my layer of Whisper White cardstock down by 1/4″ (0.5cm) and then cut it in half length & width ways. This gave me 4 small segments which I was able to stamp and layer.
I made 4 different colour combinations of this card – Balmy Blue (pictured above) plus…
I love a monochromatic card! I used Smoky Slate as the neutral colour – it goes so well with the Subtles range.
Which colour is your favourite???
If given a choice of swaps, I often pick yellow tones. Or pink – that’s one of my favourite colours. But I also love greens, and blues and purples….
Have you seen this image about seeing colour – it’s so true! Although I tend to think & talk in Stampin’ Up! colours (so do the Miss Papercrafts – they love learning the colour names!).
If you need more Stampin’ Up! colours in your life, then you won’t want to miss the joining special during July.
