Old Olive Single Layer Stamping

 Now I should probably let you know that I am still buzzing from my new website and online ordering store. I'll try not to go on about it too much ;0) But should you get the urge to have a browse of the catalogue or place an order for Stampin' Up! products you can now do so anytime day or night using the link to my site above. 

Its so simple, just register for a Stampin' Up! account online (as with other online stores), browse the catalogue and add the items you would like to your basket and then checkout. Simple! You complete your transaction with Stampin' Up! through my online store and Stampin' Up! will then email you your confirmation and tracking number, direct to you. Your products should be with you within 3-5 days (with the exception of super busy times of the year around new catalogue launches where delivery will take an extra few days).  Delivery is a flat rate of £4.95 regardless of how many items you order and the size of your delivery (and it travels all the way from our warehouse in Germany to get to you). And the biggest benefit is that, if your order total is more than £150, Stampin' Up will also give you hostess benefits which can be redeemed with your order. Who doesn't love extra freebies?

Just as a reminder, the first 5 people ordering through my site will receive an extra special crafty gift from me in the post as a thank you for you using my online store link.

And now for some actual crafting.

Project uses: 

Cardstock: Whisper White (106549 £7.50 for 40 sheets)
Stamps:      Wordplay         (120308 - £37.95 or 120651- £29.95)
                      Printed Petals   (116679- £17.95 or 120444- £13.95)
Ink:               Old Olive          (126953 - £4.95)

Todays card share is one of the projects we completed at this month's Wight Stampers Shoebox Swap Team event. This was designed by one of my talented downline, Charlotte. We each created our own version of her lovely Old Olive card using the lovely Printed Petals Stamp Set (Page 95 of the main catalogue).

I love this single layer stamping technique. You are able to gain varying depths of colour by using the stamp on stamp off technique. If you have a piece of scrap paper beside you when you are stamping you simply ink your stamp, stamp on to your scrap piece of paper and then stamp on to your project. This creates a lighter tone of the colour you are using.

And another crafty technique, the lone flower above the M was stamped to cover a finger print! 

"There are no mistakes in stamping, only opportunities for embellishment."

Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting to you all ;0)
