Doing more with your Tin of Cards with Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Happy Friday crafty friends.

I've had a fun few hours finishing off my Tin of Cards Project Kit this morning. I was amazed at the variety of embellishments and elements in this kit. I completed my 16 cards and had plenty of bits left over to make more cards to fill my tin.

The kit instructions give you 4 card examples (1 for each coloured card base). But when you have so many lovely bits and pieces, why create the same cards 4 times? There is plenty of scope for making lots of different designs. Which is what I did. I decided to add a couple of additional stamp sets in to give me a full range of different cards. Today I am sharing the blue striped cards I made to go in my tin.

I used the coordinating Tin of Cards stamp set to create the additional stamped effects on the wood element and background. I also used my Snail, Tombow and Dimensionals to complete the overall project.

For this card I used the white side of the butterfly elements. I used a dauber to add Bermuda Bay to the smaller butterfly to coordinate with the base.

My favourite embellishments in this set are the gold epoxy hearts. I loved adding these to my cards for texture and dimension. I also mixed up which cards I used DSP on and which I added the elements too.

This final 'blue' card I've included to show you the importance of using the right ink pad for this project. I used my Memento to stamp the sentiment and you can see where it bled in to the wood. I realised after this card that Stazon is a better choice to get a clean stamping effect on the wooden speech elements.
