Before I go any further, if you have just arrived from Rebbeca-Jo, welcome! At the bottom you'll find a "Next" button with a list of names, so please do click Next and see what everyone else participating in this blog hop have been up to. You'll visit Stampin Up! demonstrators from all over the place and eventually end up back here (or wherever your starting point in the list was). I'm sure you'll get lots of inspiration, I know I will as there are so many different things to choose from the catalogue!
I chose the stamp set Around The Corner found on page 40.
I decided to choose from the In Colours for 2017/2019 as they only have another 4 months with us which makes me sad as I do love them (Stampin Up! change their "In Colours" every 2 years). I couldn't decide which colour dsp to use, so I used all of them! At least I now have a bunch of cards all ready!
I used the Stamparatus to help me position the corner stamps, it meant I could batch stamp the card layers in one go. I made a standard sized card by cutting an A4 sheet of coloured card in half lengthways. Here in the UK, that meant cutting at 4 1/8". I then folded it in half to create a tent fold card. The dsp was cut at 4 1/8" x 5 7/8" to cover the front of the card, plus a piece of vellum 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" to layer over the top. I then cut a 3 3/8" square of Whisper White for the stamped image.I used the corresponding ink colour to highlight the "Its your Day" on the image, punching out random colours for the balloons and a vellum one for each card. I finished them off with some Rhinestones
I hope this has inspired you to go look at the catalogue for ideas. Its a fun way to try something different and the samples in the catalogue are there for you to copy if you wish.
