Single Curtain Fold

I am just loving the Curtain Fold technique, this time I have done a single curtain fold. I do love the full curtain fold but just loving this technique and the single curtain fold just gives it a different look.

I also have used the beautiful new Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Floral Boutique, I just love this DSP and can see me buying more of this one definitely.

Rose Wonder Bundle - Stenciling with your Daubers


With this card I have die cut the large Rose out of the framelits and used it as a stencil to color my image I have used Stampin Up Ink Pads with daubers. Then glued the rose in place with the Fine-Tip glue pen. Finally, added a sentiment.

Rose Wonder - Background Stamp

This shows you just how versatile this Rose Wonder Bundle is, with this card I have used the large Rose Stamp as a background stamp and added a 1" band with some ribbon and pearls. Then just die cut the banner out from the framelits and applied it with my sentiment with some dimensionals.

Just shows you how different it can turn our using the same Rose Wonder Bundle by using a different technique. I have made 5 different cards using this bundle so far just by changing the technique I have used. I have a Utube Tutorial over on my Channel showing the 5 cards I have made.

Sitting Here - Creating A Scene with Masking


I thought I would create a scene with this great new stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which was released on the 1st June this year. I started by sponging my Whisper White panel with Soft Sky, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz. Then I went ahead and stamped the images on a sticky note and cut them out creating masks for my scene using the stamp set Sitting Here.

Firstly, I stamped the first cushion, covered it with my mask before stamping the second cushion. I then put my second mask on second cushion and stamped my cat. Putting all the masks on the cushions and the cat I then stamped the swing, take off your masks and you have the first part of your scene. I then stamped the bird on the back of the seat swing, stamped the flowerpot and my sentiment. I then put my mask over the flowerpot and stamped in some grass. I hope you like this card I have created for you.
