Many of you have been enjoying the savings from the Weekly Deals offered by Stampin' Up!® , but sadly it is time for them to finish.
There are just 2 more offerings and there are lots of products in those offerings. This week April 6 - 12 have some excellent stamp sets, so I thought I'd just show you a couple of samples I made for a class this week to help you envisage how useful they can be.
I've chosen 2 Christmas sets:
Reason for the Season
Holly Jolly Greetings.
I chose these sets because they are really versatile and at such a good price, you may decide you need them too!
Images from both sets can be used to stamp randomly on your paper, creating lovely backgrounds for a simple Christmas Card.
We'll start with the Reason for the Season set.
It is photopolymer so very easy to place the stamps in the 2 step stamping process.
I stamped the outline image in Archival Black Ink, then stamped real red for the petals and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.
I really like how this gives a "casual" feel to the images as they are not meant to line up perfectly.
I added a little bling - because I just cannot do Christmas without bling - using a 2-way glue pen and some Stampin' Up! Gold Glitter.
The next card is made from the snowflake image from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.
I made the background with my brayer, (Pear Pizzazz) ensured it was really dry then randomly stamped the snowflake images using Versamark, over the background. I heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder
I cut the image into 3 equal parts, matted it onto Gold foil and then added a greeting (not from this set)
I tried this technique in a few colours and matted them differently. Here is one using cherry Cobbler.
These cards are really quick to make a bundle of, and show just one way you can use these versatile stamp sets
