Thanks for popping in. A week ago today we were at the NEC in Birmingham, pedalling like crazy. Seems like months ago! Was it really only last weekend? I must check….yep.
I was on Bauble Duty, demonstrating the new 2-way overlay baubles, which have proved so popular. Maybe the price offer is irrestible. Maybe you like the illustrations. Maybe both! There’s a 3 for 2 offer on the website, which I will leave there for another week, I think….
I moved from one bauble to the other, doing little demos and showing off lots of trick n tips. How you can overlay the two stamps, how you can use them alone. One which went down well was this one, using the round bauble, the trad one.
Designer Card. Shenandoah. There’s an orange one in particular….
There she is!!
Use the stamp indexing sheet to decide the position of the bauble on the card. TOP TIP: Stay in the light area.
Black Archival to stamp the bauble into position. The 4”sq Megamounts do the job well. We had lots of conversations about Stamp positioners, or stamp platforms as they’re called. Of course our stamps work with these aids. And the day I need one, I shall buy one too.
See the Shepherd underneath? Now to make the bauble more dramatic…
Cover up with a mask which comes with the stampset.
Brush black archival ink from the centre of the bauble out to the lefthand side. A little bit top right, but mostly concentrate on top left.
When you lift off the mask, the bauble really jumps.
Trim the card and edge with a black Sharpie pen.
Mount on a 7×7 Kraftcard blank. We sell beautiful packs of this colour. Perfectly earthy, neutral colour.
Topped off with one of our new Celebrations and Christmas stickers.
Finishing touch: add the little hook at the top with a Micron pen x
Time to go indoors. I’m on Stamp cleaning and bagging duty today! No peace for the wicked!!
But all IS calm.
Love & Hugs
PS. No wonder I did my neck in ! Look ! Nice though !
