Stampin Up Irresistably Yours

IMG_2448 (Medium)IMG_2449 (Medium)A little while ago my sister gave me some sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock which at first glance looked just white , but on closer inspection I noticed they had a clear embossed design on them, and Oh, what fun I have had adding colour to these plain sheets of paper! they are called Irresistably Yours by Stampin up, and for these first two cards I experimented with dylusion sprays. as the cardstock accepts the colour the embossed pattern resists it… it’s like magic! On cards I will post later I used inks, and then of course I had all this cardstock to turn into cards. The top card – Spellbinders fairy die. and punched butterflies and a prima flower. The bottom card – stampin up stippled blossom stamp set , ribbon and pearls.Til tomorrow….

A stamped garden!

IMG_0309 (Medium)On todays  card I have gathered a few stampin up ink pads and stamp sets  – stippled blossoms, bliss, and vintage vogue – and stamped out a colourful garden onto some white cardstock, which I then fussy cut around and stuck to another piece of white cardstock which I had embossed with a stampin up embossing folder – lacy brocade. I added some rhinestones, and heat embossed a butterfly on vellum and cut around that too before sticking it on the front of the card.This card is a favourite, and I must try this a gain! Til tomorrow….

Stampin Up stippled blossoms stamp number 1

IMG_0306 (Medium)I thought I would show some stamped cards I made a couple of weeks ago. These two cards are made with Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms stamp set. Its a two step stamping technique. the first stamped layer is a solid stamp, and you stamp it in a lighter colour, then use the second stamp in a darker colour over the top to get a more defined image. On the left I used stampin up inks – daffodil delight and tangerine tango, and on the card on the right I used stampin up rasberry ripple and primrose petals. The leaves were done with garden green and pistachio pudding inks. I used an E K Success punch on both cards. Still struggling with this rotten cold, so it’s been a lazy day for me! Til tomorrow….
