Ink.Stamp.Share. Special Blog Hop - August



So what have I been working on lately?

First of all, thank you for visiting my blog from Cindy's blog and secondly, welcome to my first Blog Hop with Ink.Stamp.Share. I was truly excited to be taking part in this Special Blog Hop and it is here you will also see fellow Demonstrators showing what they have been working on for the past few weeks using various Stampin' Up! products.

So what have I been working on lately?  Recently I was asked by my Father to create two sympathy cards to send overseas (had to omit Dimensionals to keep down costs).



I knew instantly which Stampin’ Up! stamp set I wanted to use as I had wanted to buy this as soon as it was launched last year - Very Versailles.  I love the script and the elegance of the frame and the leaves and I knew this set would involve me using gold Stampin’ emboss powder as soon as I saw it, even after all these years I still smile when I watch it melt and see the finished item.  


The frame involved me doing some good ole’ fussy cutting (it’s like Marmite – you either love fussy cutting or you hate it) which I love doing, I find it so therapeutic.  


Due to these Sympathy cards being sent to the United States, I had to reduce the thickness of the layers, I usually get a bit Dimensionals happy but this time I only used them on the heat embossed frame  The frame involved me doing some good ole’ fussy cutting (it’s like Marmite – you either love fussy cutting or you hate it) which I love doing, I find it so therapeutic. 

To show just how versatile this stamp set is, I also created a ‘40th Birthday’ card, a ‘Thank You’ card and a ‘Bride & Groom’ card using the same colourways as the Sympathy cards.  They needed a little something extra added to give them and extra bit of bling, so I randomly (I struggle with ‘random’ so I call it ‘organised random’) placed several Metallic Pearls on these cards.


Here are the Stampin' Up! products that I used to create these cards:
