Good morning crafters.
How was your weekend? Mine was spent with a head cold which resulted in a lot of things being dropped, a fair few silly accidents and bumps, and one very interesting card class where my fuzzy head meant I didn't make a whole lot of sense trying to teach our projects for the month. But we got there in the end.
I have a set of birthday cards inspired by Serene Silhouettes to share today. I had seen this card on Pinterest and knew it would look lovely with a Stampin' Up! twist. So I set about recreating it using the stamps from Serene Silhouettes as my focus.
The colours I picked were So Saffron, Cajun Craze and Calypso Coral . I used a So Saffron base for two of the cards with a layer of Cajun Craze and the stamping layer was on Whisper White.
I created masks with my circle punches in various sizes. I sponged the colours through my masks to create the coloured backgrounds.
For this first card I created two masked circles and I then heat embossed the butterfly circle with gold embossing powder. I added the greeting from Wetlands and then added pearls and circles of gold ink using a sponge dauber.
This second card more closely resembles the Pinterest card. I used the silhouetted flower heads stamp over the three masked circles. I heat embossed the silhouette in gold.
And the final card was a more simplified version of the butterfly circle card. This time instead of sponge daubering circles I used the rubber on the end of a pencil to stamp smaller gold circles over the card. I added basic pearls as a final embellishment.
Have you checked out the retiring lists yet? Still some great bargains to be had. Don't forget these items are only available while stocks last.
With a new catalogue just around the corner this is a perfect time to pick up a bargain and say goodbye to some old favourites. There are lots of stamps and accessories on these lists that I love and will be sad to see leave. But then I am super excited to see what the new catalogue has in store too.
