Faux Patina

I loved this topper when I was given it as a swap, the colour and design idea were just perfect for the technique on Split Coast Stampers called Faux Patina.  The colours used are Pool party and Soft Suede for the topper, the back ground involved putting a piece of Whisper white card into the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder which had been inked up with Crumbcake on the flat side and then putting this through the Bigshot.  This transferred the ink to the card which was not embossed. 

Then by daubing various colours (pool party, soft suede and early expresso) on to the piece of card to give some depth to the texture.  Dry the card thoroughly (either by air drying or wiping with a static bag) and lightly dab with versamark (not all over) splodges really, then cover with gold embossing powder , shake off excess and heat.  You can go one step further if you wish which is to then sand the gold embossed areas to give a more distressed look. The fabulous bakers twine in pool party brought the whole colour scheme together. 

The Vermillion Stamp and the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was inked in Soft Suede. The breast of the bird was coloured in using the ink off the lid with a blender pen (my new best friend!!)  love em.

We made this card at our last Card making group evening, so if you would like to join in the fun one evening, please check out the details in my side bar or tabs across the top.

Till next time, Jayne

I attended Stampin' Up regional training over a week ago (where does the time go?), when demo's get together we swap (these are usually card fronts which we have designed ourselves, we make loads!!) and then when we get together we swap.  This process gives us a wealth of ideas and inspiration.
Today I have pictures of 4 swaps to show you, these all use the stamp sets from the new Summer Mini.  Its amazing how many different ideas there are out there.

I am hosting a Summer Mini launch workshop on Thursday 10th May in the Community Room, in the Village Hall in Marldon.  It starts at 7pm, there will be make & takes, prize draw, light refreshments and products/samples from the new mini catty.  We'd love to see you, contact me to book your space.

If you fancy hosting a workshop with your friends and earning some hostess £'s to spend in the catalogue then contact me and we'll make a date.  We can even tailor the party if there is a specific stamp set for technique you want to see/use.

Stampin' Up have also reduced the price of the starter kit to £99 so if you were contemplating becoming a demo then its perfect, contact me to have a chat about your options.  You don't have to do workshops etc you can just be a hobby demo and get your discounts.............perfect lol

Don't forget Craft Group dates coming up :  Come Crafting - 24th May and Cardmaking Group - 7th June

Project Night in June is a make & take night- General Occasions, more details to follow....
