Last night my lovely Upline and Stamping Friend Michelle Scott came over for a wee few hours of stamping and chatting and we had a great time! We basically swapped and played with products that each of us didnt actually have ourselves.. Mich went home with a bunch of top notes and I was left with pages of Vintage Vogue flowers! haha
I couldn’t resist creating straight away with Vintage Vogue as I have the Very vintage Wheel but hadn’t stretched my investment to the actual stamp set! Oh Joy this is what I whipped up during our stamping session last night…
I love this colour combo of Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Soft Suede. The DSP is from the delightful Cottage Wall papers – do you like? A closer look at the flowers might reveal that I actually used the rock and roll technique first stamping in soft suede and rolling the edges in Chocolate Chip:
My stampajig helped me place the border stamp at the bottom and the sentiment stamp perfectly (love that tool!!!)…
Then I moved on to my favourite card shape of the moment – The Gate Card. I scalloped the inside edge and turned back the “collar” of this one. Inserted a DSP sheet inside, stamped another lovely flower vine from Vintage Vogue on the front, and then moved to my BigShot table.
With my Bigshot, I cut out a set of the Buttons and used three of them to stack together and create the button embellishment on the bottom… Then I grabbed my Thanks embosslit and created my sentiment feature at the top with the reverse side of the same sheet of DSP. Here is a closer look at the sentiment:
Its really subtle in this pic but so sweet in real life! Dont you love the polkadot Grosgrain in Soft Suede?
As you can see I had a great time swapping stories, tips and products with Michelle last night (thanks Mich!!!) and I am sure she liked the stamped card that my eldest Laurenz made for her at his stamping table too!
Thanks for stopping by guys, and if you would like to join our team of stampers, don’t forget that the starter kit is a wopping 20% 0ff at the moment (just $259) – give me a call if you’d like to know more about becoming a demonstrator, or just fancy making a little extra money to feed your craft addiction (er hobby)
