An easy technique

You may have heard that Stampin’ Up! have decided to discontinue the Blendabilities. I’m really sad about this as you may have noticed that I really like them!! They have had numerous issues with them and have decided not to continue to offer a product which doesn’t meet their high standards. Whilst I’m sad that they are no longer available, I am proud to be a part of a company that has such high standards and is willing to make such a decision.

So I had a workshop recently and decided to focus on our other pens, the Stampin’ Write markers. One of my favourite techniques is the marker to stamp technique. It is a great and easy way to add more than one colour to a stamp. And it’s always an Ooohh moment when it works!!

I was inspired by a card on Pinterest, see here. I have changed it around a bit, including turning it on its side. I have used the Big News stamp set which is great for large sentiments.

12 June 2013 – An awesome birthday card!!!

My birthday was at the end of January and my amazingly talented Stampin’ Sister, Jess, sent me an absolutely awesome birthday card!! She is sooo talented!! Check out her blog here.

I didn’t have the same stamp set that she had used, so I improvised with what I had. I used the Delicate Doilies stamp set (which I love!!) and embossed each of the “doilies” with white embossing powder. I then coloured them using markers and blenders pens. I just love the rounded corner which I tried to punch out but was a dismal failure so I ended up cutting it by hand. Sometimes, you just have to go the old fashioned way!!

I also love the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit!! Too pretty!!
