Stampin Up Party

Here are the 4 projects my wonderful friend and Stampin Up demonstrator Jane Norrish organised for my party.

We tied this tiny bow using a fork. Obviously I will need to practise this technique.
The stamp positioner made this card so easy to do.
At the end we sprayed the new Frost White Shimmer Paint very lightly over the finished card. Jane used  a mini mister bottle filled it with ISOCOL (it’s rubbing alcohol antiseptic) and added some Frost White Shimmer Paint and then combined the ingredients in the mini mister to create this amazing shimmer affect on the project. I will have to add this product to my Wish List.   Lightly is the key word as heavy means your previously stamped  inks wet up, and sadly your  images will bleed and ruin all your hard work. See there is a trick to everything. Three light sprays was all I needed. What would I do without Jane’s wonderful tuition.

On this card for the background we first stamped a flourish randomly then used a Stampin Write marker in the Colour Spritzer Tool. This created the splattered affect the punched out the four squares and distress the edges. Loving this lace.

Here we punched out the hearts and stuck them to white cardstock. Then put that thru the Big Shot using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Wow how good does this look. Now I have to add the hearts punch to my wish list. (Jane’s tip is to wash your folder under the tap just in case any glue got on your folder in the process)

Here we have the bird house. Jane used her Mini Milk Carton die and this was so fast to make and so very cute. I install timber shingle roofs for a living and this was the quickest roof to date I’ve ever installed.
I’m using a fake battery operated candle in mine. Jane supplied a mini library clip to close the top.
It is adorable!
