I was so happy to have been asked to be on the display team. I can't show you my projects until the new catalogue pre-order begins on May 30th. I can't wait to show you what I've made. I had great fun after I got over my initial "OMG WHAT am I going to make with that!" Lol!
In the meantime, I have been having some fun with the new photopolymer stamp set, which you can earn free, with orders of £60 and over! They are so easy to use - I love them!
I have seen (and bought for my boys - who am I kidding? I bought it for me really!) various kids stamp sets that you stamp a shape and then doodle a character, a bug.... anything really with a marker pen. Then my sister bought a birthday card for my youngest son, that had colourful finger prints with little monsters doodled on a handful of them. So when I opened the Eye-catching Ikat set and saw one of the shapes, I immediately thought of creating my own little cartoon doodle card.
They were really easy to make. I simply created a grid in pencil on a piece of Whisper White card stock and then stamped different colours in different squares. Because the photopolymer stamps are completely clear it was so easy to line the shapes up. I then doodled little cartoon characters using a black marker pen. I got some ideas from a kids how to draw cartoons book and I made some of them up myself. Give it a go - it's easy and fun! I simply stamped the sentiment using the Cycle Celebrations stamp set and my stamp-a-majig.
For these cards I used:
Stamp sets: Eye-catching IKAT (free with min order), Cycle Celebrations wood or clear
Ink pads: Brights: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Subtles: Calypso Coral, Pear Pizazz, Pool Party, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, StazOn Black
Card Stock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral
I hope you've enjoyed today's project. If you're interested in more information about the regional event and would like to join me as a demonstrator so you can come to the next Stampin' Up! events, just give me a call. I am happy to have a no obligation chat with you!
