Good morning lovelies.
How is your week going? What beautiful weather we are having. The Isle of Wight is positively beaming with sunshine. I am keeping my fingers crossed the sunshine holds out for the weekend and the Isle of Wight Festival. I haven't been for a few years now and I am so looking forward to some good live music (Queen with Adam Lambert are headlining on Sunday. I am super excited!).
Over last weekend I demonstrated for two groups of lovely ladies showing them all the loveliness of the new Stampin' Up! catalogue. I chose the Swirly Bird bundle for our make and take (which I will share with you later in the week). I wanted to demonstrate how versatile the stamp set is so created my hostess thank you note with the same set. I came up with this sea scene.
I used a Whisper White Notecard as my base and stamped the swoosh from the Painter's Palette stamp set in Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Pool Party for the ombre style sea. I then stamped the sun in Daffodil Delight and Watermelon Wonder (I stamped the middle circle on scrap paper and cut around it and raised on a dimensionals).
I stamped the boat on to scrap paper. I pieced the boat together using the various stamps in the Swirly Bird stamp set. I stamped using Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim and Watermelon Wonder. The final touch is the Thank You from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set (I love a handwritten style sentiment).
Thank you for popping by today. Please let me know if you have any questions about Stampin' Up!, or any of our products. I would love to help. All items can be purchased online via my shop or get in touch directly and I can order them for you to be delivered direct to your door. I'd also love to Demo for you and your friends at a crafty party. As the hostess you earn lots of lovely freebies and you all get to make a fun crafty project too (no crafting experience necessary!).
