Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!
I am in love with this years new In-Colours! I thought I would share 4 of them here today, purely because my chosen stamp set only has 4 stamps! So, let me introduce you to; Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo! The fifth colour is a beautiful orangey/peach called Peekaboo Peach, and I will be sharing a card featuring it on Saturday.
I decided to make a set of note cards for today’s Pinkies Blog Hop, featuring a couple of my favourite stamp sets from the upcoming Annual Catalogue, as well as a technique I found recently whilst trawling through Pinterest – Masking using the fabulous Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
The Stamp set is called Love you Lots. I am head over heals for this one, super cute animals and a couple of sweet sentiments – I am sold! This is one of the new Hostess Exclusives launching on 1st June, and available to order when you host an event or spend over £150 in a single order. I
I first stamped the cute animals in Archival Basic Black ink and gave them a minute or two to dry before covering the stamped image with the Fine-Tip glue pen. The metal tip makes it super easy to ‘colour in’ the image, making sure that the whole image is covered. It takes a couple of hours to dry, I have used this technique on some cards that are going out with my catalogues this week and I left those over night, but a couple of hours is really all you need.
Then once the image is dry, I stamped over them with another new stamp set; Playful Backgrounds. I’m loving this set too! 4 cool backgrounds that you can layer and extend. After stamping I also sponged more ink onto the corner of each piece, the ink that lands on the dry glue just wipes away as the glue acts as a resist, leaving the stamped critters white while the rest of the area is coloured.
Here is the complete set, as you can see I made a couple of boo-boos with the glue on the Ladybirds and the Hedgehogs, but they are still super cute! I will be sharing the other cards I made with the same technique next week after the arrive with my customers.
Have fun around the rest of the hop, I can’t wait to see what the other Pinkies have made!
