More Birthday Adventures

I am in great company this month for birthdays!

During the week, it was the birthday of one of my Paper Adventure team members – Kristel Rimmer.

Kristel was my very first Paper Adventurer – back when it was just us, and the idea of having a ‘team’ was all very new.

She’s been an amazing support, a great cheerleader and a wonderful friend to share this creative journey with.

These little gift sets are becoming a fun little project for each team birthday that comes up!

Kristel’s necklace reminded me of the Definitely Dahlia background stamp – and a spotlight panel!

And some copper to finish the look!

Happy Birthday Kristel – wishing you everything amazing this year!


Product List

Good Morning! It’s New Catalogue Day!!!

Happy Wednesday, the first day of winter (here in Australia) and welcome to the new catalogue!!!

The new colours are beautiful, stamps amazing & product selection plentiful.  There really is something for everyone in this catalogue.

This is a card we made in a class on the weekend using the bright & beautiful Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo Peach inks.  The Definitely Dahlia stamp is carrying over from the 2016 catalogue.

Just Add Ink - #313 Add "B". Baby Wipe Technique - Definitely Dahlia stamp & 2016-2018 In Colors: Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum & Flirty Flamingo. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Using the ink refills, we made our our ‘stamp pad’ using a baby wipe.  This technique give a lovely marbled effect and shows off the new colours beautifully.

I wonder what the girls over at Just Add Ink will think for my ‘Just Add B #313‘ entry.

We also used ‘any colour’ embossing.  Did you know you can emboss in any Stampin’ Up! colour???

Simply ink your stamp in Versamark, then your chosen colour (Rich Razzleberry is pictured in my card) and then cover with clear embossing powder.  Heat as usual and the resulting colour will be a slightly lighter version of your chosen ink.
