Here's my challenge card which was loosely based on a sketch they had provided (but I always do something a bit different ;).



Materials used:
  • Whisper white cardstock & ribbon
  • Beau chateau DSP (retired)
  • Marina mist ink & cardstock
  • Fresh vintage floral stamp
  • Curly cute sentiment stamp
  • Stampin' Up! Sizzix labels framelits
  • Stampin' Up! Sizzix Adorning accents die and texture impressions.
  • Decorative label punch
  • Pearls (non SU - had run out and have some on order.)

Welcome

Welcome to my new blog dedicated to Stampin' Up! projects.

I've been involved in paperarts such as scrapbooking, card making and ATCs for more than 10 years.  I've been buying and using Stampin' Up! products for many years and thought I'd share what I've been doing with others interested in Stampin' Up! too. 

Like many papercrafters, I started papercrafting using cheap stamps but was never happy with the image they produced.  I've found over the years that it's very hard to beat the quality of the Stampin' Up! stamps.  Being a red rubber stamp, I can use them with hot mixed media techniques which the clear acrylic stamps just can't handle.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may about my projects at anytime - just post a comment and I'll reply asap. :)
