A couple of Stampin' Up! projects

Today I'm sharing two of the Stampin' Up! projects we recently did in my monthly class. This one, which is a CASE from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, was quite challenging.  I had been asked how it was done and thought it would be a good technique to showcase in a class.

The background is stamped using the Lovely Lace embossing folder. You ink up the inside of the folder (the side which says Made In China on it) with Versamark ink and then sandwich your card stock in between and apply even pressure to the outside to transfer the Versamark to the cardstock. I found that the best results were when I used the brayer to roll over the outside, with the embossing folder on a Stampin' Pierce Mat or rubbing your fingers firmly over the outside, with the folder on the mat.

This second card was using the Blendabilities (Wisteria Wonder). I had been asked by one of my lovely ladies if we could do another project using them and the Blended Bloom rubber stamp.

I will be doing a special Blendabilities class in the new year - so watch this space for more details.
This week I am working on a load of Christmas projects to display at my upline, Michelle's training on Sunday. So expect a full blown Christmas theme going on next week! My eldest son, Regan, was a bit non-plussed about the project I was working on yesterday. Personally I was very excited about it - maybe when he sees it finished he will be too as it is for him and his brother!!

I hope you've enjoyed today's projects. Thanks for stopping by.
