Well I’m not sure what’s happened to summer but it’s great weather for crafting :). I’ve been busy creating with some of the new products from the Occasions Catalogue.
My favourite stamp at the moment is the ‘Beautiful You’ set. This outline stamp lends itself to a number of different ways to colour – ink, colouring in with the new watercolour pencils or the paper piecing technique. I’d never done this technique before but it’s very cool and effective.
First off I stamped the image on a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Envelope Paper. I used both sides of the paper – the patterned side for the dress and then the plain side for her hat – and then cut around the outline.
Next up I stamped the image on the card front and then adhered the DSP cut out over the stamped image.
I used Pool Party ink for the ‘puddle’.
I also bagged up some Note Cards and Envelopes I’d created from my One Sheet Wonder project – a nice gift to give away.
Check back later this week to see some watercoloured cards using this stamp set.
