Jayne’s second challenge from last night was to use Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray and Whisper White to make a card, layout or 3D item. I needed some thank you cards and I thought those colours would be nice to use on those. Here is what I came up with ………
I used the large En Francais background stamp in Basic Gray first and although I inked up the whole stamp, when I lay the Whisper White cardstock on the stamp (I tend to use the En Francais stamp facing up instead of stamping it onto the cardstock) I just pressed with my fingers in some areas instead of smoothly it and pressing flat all over like I would if I wanted all of the text to be stamped. I then stamped the large Vintage Vogue Flower in Cherry Cobbler, using 2nd, 3rd and 4th impressions so the colour was a bit lighter.
To get the frame around the label, I punched two Modern Label shapes from Basic gray and adhered them together so that they overlapped, then adhered the stamped and punched label in the centre of the two. A bit of the White organza ribbon (which is divine!) and I was done! Hope the girls who received the card liked it!
That’s all for tonight! Cheers, Kari 🙂
Yes, I am still around 😉 I have been busy the last month or so preparing for my stall at the Craft Fair! I am by myself this year, so I got really organised and set up my display in the lounge at home to see what I wanted to take and display and I have to admit, it made packing, transport and unpacking SO easy! Plus, I didn’t lug heaps of stuff down there only to leave it in a box under the table! LOL!
It’s been lovely to see so many familiar faces there – customers and demonstrators – and I have really enjoyed the first two days, still one to go! Thought I’d share a pic of my stall for those of you that can’t come ….
I have to say a huge thank you to Carol Dunstan for lending me her Stampin’ Up! Banner – mwah! Much appreciated! And a big thank you to all of the demonstrators out there who have participated in swaps with me …. if you look carefully you may see one of your cards or scrap pages on display!
And, not sure if you can see them clearly at the front on the left, but here’s a couple of pics of some little things that have proved quite popular …. in fact I have had to make more each night for the next day!
The top ones hide a little lollipop inside and the bottom ones are battery operated tealights (I call them fat-free birthday cakes!). I have had lots of positive feedback about them and even had a couple of orders for specific colours. Thanks everyone!
Okay, that’s all for tonight, off to rest my feet for tomorrow 🙂 Happy stampin’! Kari
