Facebook Live 29th January

By | 1st February 2018

Well, what a night Monday turned out to be!! My internet signal kept going AWOL so our Facebook Live session ended up being in three parts!! Thanks to everyone who kept going with me. I’ve managed to splice all three bits together into one video now which you can watch below. We started with a little ‘Stamping 101’ to cover the basics of stamping before moving on to make these cards:

Card 1 – Painted with Love & Perennial Birthday

For this first card I wanted to show how just a little of our Designer Series Paper goes a long way. I love the patterns in the Painted Love DSP but think they’re a bit overpowering. But, by using just a small piece we were still able to make this very clean and simple looking card that allowed the pattern to shine without being too much. The bonus is that it really makes your paper go a long way. I think the gold sequin trim really adds a lovely finishing touch, picking up the gold in the paper. Plus, out came the fabulously versatile Perennial Birthday stamp set. This set looks very floral but you can see there’s not a flower in sight here!

Card 2 – Painted With Love & Happy Wishes

Sticking with the Painted Love DSP I used a different layout. But this time the focal point was the Happy Wishes stamp set, which is one of our free Saleabration items. I love that you have lots of elements that you can combine in different ways to crate just the greeting you like. I also showed you how to get the ‘ombre’ effect on the main ‘Happy’ sentiment

Card 3 – Petal Palette & Washi Tape

For our third card I went back to a favourite – the Petal Palette stamp set. This time, I wanted to use one of the smaller images to create a background. Plus, I broke out the washi tape! This is one of those things that never seems to get an airing even though I love it – do you have things like that in your craft stash? Anyway, the sample card used Lemon Lime Twist but the one I made used Pool Party. I think I prefer the Pool Party one – what about you?

Card 4 – Picture Perfect Party Candles

For our final card, I used the wonderfully fun (if a bit of a tongue-twister) Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. The little candles in this stamp set are so fun and I’d already done three samples in different colour schemes because I’d had so much fun playing with them!

This would make a lovely set of cards to give as a gift but also shows how you could easily make up a load of cards really quickly and easily. Just by varying the colours you get cards suitable for a range of people (kids, female and male). In the video, we made the one on the right of the picture using Night of Navy and Marina Mist and the gorgeous new corduroy ribbon. I just love the feel of this one – it’s so wonderfully soft!

If you’d like to know the colours used on the others, just drop me a line or leave a comment and I’ll list them out for you rather than making this post even longer than it already is! Which one is your favourite?
