Stampin’ Up! A Good Man card for Father’s Day

Hello!

I have a new card for you today, the third using my stamp set of the month, A good man.

The card I’m sharing is actually the card I gave my Dad for Father’s Day. It’s been a crazy week with Father’s day, My Dad’s birthday, a Friend’s 50th birthday and my Son’s 18th, phew! And it’s only Wednesday!

You’ll notice that I have used the same image as the last project but it’s a stepped up version using die cutting and colour with Stampin’ Blends which are Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers. If you haven’t tried them yet, you must!

Mirror technique with the Stamparatus and Animal Outing

Hello!

 

I have something fun for you today! You can do so many great techniques with the Stamparatus and I’d love to teach you the mirror technique perfect for those times when you wish there were 2 of one image.

The Stampin’ Blends are back in stock – Yipeee!! – and the new colours are now available – Double Yipee!! I don’t know about you but I just love colouring in. My Husband and I are the parents that would colour in the activity sheets our kids used to get in restaurants when they were younger!

If you haven’t heard of the Stamparatus before it’s a stamp positioning tool which in it’s simplest form means you get your stamped where you want it, every time. But of course as crafters we always want to discover new things and the mirror technique is a great one to learn from the many available.

I’m calling this my ‘Giraffe Selfie Card’ 🙂

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – This little piggy…

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for February 2018.

This month our theme is Animals!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Esther Boulter –  Gather and Create or you may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Stampin’ Up! has many cute animals to choose from but the This Little Piggy stamp set is a favourite of mine. The sentiment on the Piggy I chose seems to suit my current mood too! Girl Power in Piggy form 🙂

Those Piggies just put a smile on your face!

 

 

 

She believed she could…

 

 

Method – Hints and tips

I cut a piece of the gorgeous new Springtime Foils Specialty paper at 10 x 14.4cm and coloured it with the light Pink Pirouette Blends pen. Did you know you can earn the Springtime foils for FREE??

The Piggy was stamped onto thick Whisper White card in Versamark and heat embossed in silver. Then coloured in with Stampin’ Blends – alcohol markers. Please be careful when colouring in an embossed image, the alcohol in the pens are not friends with the heat embossing so stay inside the lines!

Her wings were very lightly coloured with Pink Pirouette blends, then fill the wings with fine tip glue pen and add dazzling diamonds. Leave to dry (won’t take long) before die cutting your image using the circles framelits.

 

Don’t forget the inside!
