Thank you so much for joining us for another Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday! Today we have two demonstrators here to share their love for the new Tin of Cards Project Kit with us.
We love seeing how these ladies can take the components of a kit and make something new and unexpected. Let’s see what Anne Granger has to share!
“The new Tin of Cards was the first thing that I ordered when the new 2015-2016 Annual catalogue was launched. This new Tin of Cards is a MUST in your collection as you not only get the gorgeous tin but you also receive all the supplies to create 16 beautiful cards. Which is perfect as you can keep one for yourself and give 3 away to family and friends!!!”
“One of the things that I love doing is showing my customers other ways of using their accessories in their project kit as this helps them think outside the box. Plus it’s a great way to show more value to the project kit!”
“One of my favourite techniques right now is sponging ink on the negative side of embossed cardstock. I embossed my Mint Macaron card stock with the Large Polka Dot Impresssion Folder and then using a sponge dauber and Mint Macaron ink, I inked up the circles. This creates a fun monochromatic feel to your project!”
“When I’m creating cards I really like to use online sketch challenges. I love using sketches, as it’s like a mystery just waiting to be solve, you just need to find the missing puzzle pieces! I started with a sketch for this card and I love how it turned out.”
“Are you a trend watcher? Do you look around you and see colour combinations that you think, wow that would look fabulous on a card? Well I do, and one of my favourite colour trends is Black and Yellow right now! This colour combo is striking together and as soon as I saw that yellow butterfly, I knew that it had to the highlight of my card!!”
A big thank you to Anne Granger for sharing her awesome cards with us! Next we have the projects of Julie Oliver to share.
“I really like the Gold sheets provided in this project kit. Combined with black and white, it makes a really elegant and sophisticated wedding card. I added a bit of black background paper from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Stack, and the gold epoxy hearts stickers were perfect to complete the card.”
“The Crushed Curry colour of the big butterfly is a great contrast with the Bermuda Bay card base. I also really like that with the new photopolymer stamps, you can bend them and create different images. I was able to use the “line” image and make it into a curved trail left by the butterfly.”
“For this card, I used the window in the card base to “suspend” the butterflies. The gold metallic thread included in the kit was great for this! I completed the card with a flower from Beautiful Bunch Bundle and some little leaves made with the Bird Builder Punch. I also used the negative image of the butterfly (included in the kit) to sponge some butterflies inside the card with Crumb Cake ink.”
“To create the “sunburst” pattern for this card I used all the different designer series papers from the kit. I love how bright and fun this looks! The wood cut out and Star epoxy stickers completed it beautifully.”
Thank you so much Anne and Julie! Your projects are so cute and show the versatility of this great Tin of Cards kit!
