Stampin’ Up! Hello Darling using a sketch from Stamping&Blogging

hello darling from stampin up by Michelle LastAnd she skids in at the last moment having just made the card in time!!  Cor blimey that was tight this week, I decided to have the day off yesterday and had a lovely day having my haircut, a little shopping followed by a cry fest watching the fault in our stars at the cinema with my sisters, neice and mum.  It was a perfect day and the reason I had to hastily make the card this morning ready to post!

This is another of the sets I have been dying to use, Hello Darling.  I saw the sketch and looked up on my shelf and it seemed that the set was perfect for this card.  I love being able to just reach out and use a little of this and a little of that and it all comes together so easily thanks to the coordination from Stampin’ Up!

So here is the sketch I used -

Pinkies Annual Catalogue 2014 Blog Hop

Blog Hop, StampinUp, sale-a-bration, MIchelle Last

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

Big hello to you if you have arrived here from Angelique’s blog..

So I had 240 pages to choose from and I chose the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. I have seen so many beautiful things made with this stamp set I could not wait to get my hands on it!  And once I got my hands on it I have loved every single thing I have made with it.  The stamps all go together so beautifully that there is no need to use anything else apart from the matching butterfly punches!

So I created a card wallet to house 4 matching cards and envelopes.  And I am offering a kit with the a pdf of measurements (in metric) and an instructional private video to make the project in the comfort of your own home.

I made the 4 cards first and there are two of each design and stamped on the inside too and then the wallet and belly band followed…

Stampin’ Up! Epic Alphabet stamps using a sketch from Stamping&Blogging

Epic Alphabet from stampin up made by Michelle Last

Something a bit different today. The brief was to make a masculine card.  So with slight trepidation I set to work and before I knew it, the card was complete – love it when that happens.  I have been struggling with TMS (Too much stuff) since the delivery from the new catalogue arrived but I think this card cured me!

I was itching to use the epic alphabet photopolymer stamps and I would normally line all the letters up on a clear block and stamp all at the same time but the letters were too far apart.  So I used some washi tape to stamp in a straight line (see below) and stamped the letters individually with Staz On ink.  It is so easy to peel off the washi tape once you are done!  As they are completely clear it was so easy to line up the letters and then I fussy cut around the whole word.  I need a little practice with my fussy cutting but oh well……

washi tape straight line

I added the ‘hey’ sentiment from the Hi There stamp set and I loved the sentiment hey dude, it reminded me of a Beatles song and then I found the perfect sentiment for the inside….

Made me chuckle as I love to think of myself as such a cool mum, my kids on the other hand wholeheartedly disagree with me!!
