I have to say, I have fallen in love with the stamp set "Sitting Here". It boasts 14 photopolymer stamps....featuring an old wooden swing, three different types of pillows, a cat, a dog curled up asleep, his basket, a little bird, grass, plant pot and four salutations. Imagine how many great little scenes you could make with this.
I made up 4 variations myself, trying to decided which one I would use in my June Stampin Class. Here's a closer look at the one I chose.
I taught the ladies how to "mask".....giving the impression the plant pot was in front of the swing and a chance to work with either Aqua Painters, Blending Pens or Stampin Write Markers to colour the scene. I used Crumb Cake card stock as the base, a layer of Old Olive card stock and stamped onto Whisper White Thick card stock.
The other card the ladies worked on "Painter's Palette", features 9 stamps. A great way to add a splash of colour to your cards. With birthday wishes or expressions of friendship, this is a really nice stamp set. Here is a close up of the card.
I had so much fun using all the new "In-Colour" ink pads, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. Keeping the colour splashes to the bottom right hand side of the Whisper White card stock, with a piece of the new "Playful Palette Washi tape in a diagonal line from left to right. Just out of interest, have any of you ever used Washi tape on any of your cards?? It's such a useful little tool.
The easel was stamped on a scrap of white card stock, cut out and adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. The card "topper" was then adhered to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock with Multi Purpose Liquid Glue and mounted onto the white card base, again using Stampin Dimensionals.
Such a great class....we chatted, crafted, had a cuppa and crafted some more. My ladies all went home with a new catalogue, AND a little gift from me.....
A wish list pad to keep track of their favourite products, plus a bookmark of the 5 new In-Colour inks and cardstock. A fun night.....hope you can make the next one??
