Stampin' Stars and Twinklets Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! 2016 Catalogue

Hi All

Glad you made it to our blog today as we are excited to showcase a new stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalogue which only launched on Wednesday. Have you got a copy yet?

It's our first time in a blog hop so thank you for stopping by. If you came straight to us, check out the full list of all participants at the bottom of the post.

Before you do though, here are our makes using,

2016-2018 In Colour Classic Stampin' Pads

We have been inspired with the masking technique we used on the Make & Takes at the VIP day we were lucky enough to attend at Stampin' Up! HQ in aid of the Coram Charity. We have used this technique on these A7 Very Vanilla notecards.

Stamp on a sticky note then cut, to use as your mask before stamping the leaves to create depth. Keep the handmade mask in the stamp case to be used next time.

Use the Blender Pen to colour the main flower and add the shadow around the flower. For the background alternate between 1st Generation and 2nd Generation stamping technique to add even more dimension.

For this card, we've added some interest to the leaves with the new Copper Embossing Powder and highlighting areas with a white pigment pen.

The Floral Affection Embossing Folder matches the designs on the stamp set. For this card we have used the debossed side and sentiment from the stamp set. The colours have been applied using the  Stampin Sponges and using a straight edge as a mask to add a 'sun flare' effect.

Here are some other projects we have created using the set:

Create borders for your scrapbooking pages by using the same techniques from the notecards

Stamp randomly to decorate kraft paper before turning into a Mini Treat Bag

Used in corners to add depth on this seascape

Hope you like our projects and feel inspired to create something this weekend. We would love to see your creations so share them on Facebook or Twitter. Also, if you live around Basingstoke, come and join us at one of our card making class.

  1. WOW, these are stunning. Love the scrapbook page and the card made by inking the embossing folder. x

  2. What lovely uses of this stamp set, I especially like the compositions of the scrapbook page. The sunset card is something I would never have thought of!
