Suite Showcase #15 - Les Shoppes

Hello and welcome back!

This is the first one of the month and as the weather is not exactly the best this summer in Norfolk, so I have been happily crafting to avoid getting caught in all of the rain.  This time we will be showing you the Les Shoppes suite by Stampin’ Up! I wanted to focus on the lovely Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This suite was also used in my fortnightly Stamp-a-Stack class and it was lovely seeing what the ladies created themselves using the same products as I had.

It has been a while since I made a six-inch card, so I decided to make two of them.  

For this card, I chose the images off the sheets of shops and the decided upon which colour card I wanted as the mount, for this one it was Crumb Cake.  I used two shops and made the canopy 3D by attaching another on top.

By picking out the colours in the card, I was able to stamp some leaves in co-ordinating colours and then punch them out using the bough punch.

I have always had a weakness for a lovely Embossing Folder so when they add type font into the mix it means the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder becomes my go to product.  Also to add greenery to the cards I chose to use my favourite punch - Bough Punch and the Layering Leaves stamp set.

With the second card I stamped all over the card using the dots and I wanted the leaves to be in the background to represent hedges.

By adding another fussy cut shop out and another canopy on top, from an incomplete shop I was abble to add more definition. 

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog post, below is a link to the products that I have used on creating these cards:

I will be adding the cards from my Stamp-a-Stack cards class to another blog post, so I hope you will visit again to see what I have made.  Her is the link for the upcoming blog post - Les Shoppes cards.  This post will go live on 14th August.
