Happy Friday to all.
Only one work day to go and it'll be the weekend. And how lovely that the beautiful weather has returned just for the weekend. Lots happening here on the Isle of Wight this weekend from summer fayres to visiting friends so hopefully it'll be a busy (and fun!) one.
So lots of craftiness to share with you today. With a new month brings lots of new crafty announcements. The first of which is August's 'Best of...' stamp set. And this month Shelli (co-founder of Stampin' Up!) takes centre stage with the Best of Shelli. I am super excited about this set as I just love all the images within it. As with Butterflies and Flowers, this set will also be available through to March 31st next year. But best order yours now to avoid disappointment in case they sell out.
And even more exciting, Stampin' Up! have also announced an exclusive Designer Paper promotion for August. Order 3 packs of paper and get a 4th for free. This includes all the £9.95 beautiful packs of papers from the Annual Catalogue (Speciality Papers & Paper Stacks are excluded from the offer). To take advantage of this, please get in touch today on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01983 609249.
And finally, here is a bit of crafty creativeness for your Friday morning. This is one of the cards we made at our July card class. When i first got my hands on a copy of the Stampin' Up! catalogue I fell in love with the Wetlands stamp set. I adore the sketchy designs of the seashore birds and the accompanying sentiments and grassland stamps. It is such a beautiful and versatile stamp set.
We created this card using an Apothecary Accents mask secured with post it notes. We then used a sponge to ink Tempting Turquoise and Soft Sky ink for the sea and sky and So Saffron and Crumb Cake for the sand. We then stamped the grass in Wild Wasabi and the birds and sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar. We then mounted the Whisper White layer on to a card base cut from the beautiful Natural Composition Speciality papers and tied with (still one of my all time favourite) linen thread.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please get in touch with any questions or queries or to place an order or book a workshop. I can be contacted on email@example.com or 01983 609249.
