I can hardly believe how time has flown since I returned from Incentive Trip last month! I have been super busy with classes, workshops and Christmas Stamp-a -Stacks as well as fitting in the Penrith Show and our Stampin’ Up! Regional Training Day at the Sofitel this weekend – which was heaps of fun (more about that later). Not much time for Blogging I’m afraid! But I thought I would pop in quickly today to let you know that once again, I am offering Gift Vouchers this year to make your Christmas shopping easier. If you are anything like me and leave things ’til the last minute, you’ll love this option for your gift-giving. You can choose a hand-stamped voucher in any denomination (pictured above), beautifully presented in an envelope to pop under the tree for that someone special.
Email me today to organise your gift vouchers!
And here is a quick card we made recently at Stamp Club using the Faux Silk technique which is a simple way to get a great effect with almost any stamp. I have used the All A Flutter single stamp (p 161 of the Catalogue), stamped it onto some white Tissue Paper in Black Stazon before watercolouring with a Blender Pen and ink from the lid of my inkpads.
Next I scrunched up the tissue before gluing it onto some Confetti White cardstock (HINT : adhere Anywhere GlueStick to the cardstock rather than the tissue paper as paper will tear and make sure you cover every inch). Without flattening out the tissue too much spread it out and press it down on the glued surface of the Confetti cardstock. The effect is a lovely textured look which feels like raw silk and gives your stamped image extra dimension too.
If you’d like to learn some new techniques and get together regularly with other stampers as well as take advantage of exclusive Club offers then email me for an application form. Monthly Stamp Clubs will be starting up again in late January and run for 6 months. For more information about my Stamp Clubs click HERE.
I’ll be back soon with some more things to share and hopefully some photos too!
