Stamparatus Technique ~ Wreath Video Tutorial

This is the 8th in my series using the Stamparatus by Stampin’ UP!  The Stamparatus is Stampin’ UP!’s latest tool  and an absolute must have for all stampers.  It helps you perfectly align your stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and accurately and gets complete ink coverage – ‘cos you can do a ‘do-over’

I am using the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set for this technique as I find it I get a better result  if I have a lot of smaller images rather than a few larger ones.  It also gives me the chance to use lots of different ink colors as well.

Narrow Notecards with Tropical Escape DSP

Merry Merlot in a Tuscan Vineyard!

I just could not resist it………….. using the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp set with the Merry Merlot ink and card!!!!!!  With the exception of a little glint of gold I made this card monocromatic so the images really pop out.  I am thinking that this will be one of my sweet and simple cards where I use one stamp set, some card and ink, an embellishment and a couple of tools.

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Merry Merlot Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card

Layer 2: 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 Merry Merlot Card

Layer 3: 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 Very Vanilla Card

Banner 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 Merry Merlot and 4 1/4 x 1 Very Vanilla Card

Ink Colors: Merry Merlot

Layer 1 was stamped randomly with the Bunches of Grape Stamp, then attached to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  Layers 2 and 3 are popped up on  4 – 5 Stampin Dimensionals, as it the banner at the base of the card.

A trio of gold metallic pearls and we have a card ready to send.  I did not add a greeting to this card, partly because the stamp set does not have any but also I think it would work for any occasion, don’t you?

Home to Roost with Grapefruit Grove Foil ~ Free from Stampin’ UP!

Today I am pairing 2 of the Sale-a-bation items onto one card.  The Home to Roost stamp set has proven to be a  very popular choice, due mainly I think to that very handsome rooster stamp.  If you really look at the set though it has 4 very useful greetings as well as a ‘bunch of grasses’ which are so very peaceful looking.
