Welcome back

Next week I have a flower making class followed by a class making bases for the flowers.   I had some fun making these flowers in different colours using the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies stamp and die set.  These are so quick and easy and you can do whatever colour you like.  For these flowers I have heat embossed using the beautiful Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Powder on white cardstock.  Before cutting out using the dies I used my sponge dauber to add the colours – Memento Summer Sky, Dandelion, Lulu Lavender.  I have done the same thing with the leaves and used Memento New Sprout to colour them in.  I have shaped the flowers using my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  I will be putting a tutorial up later this week on how I have done the hinged card using the Spellbinders Heirloom Oval die.  I was very happy with how this turned out.

A Stampendous Review

Welcome back.

This week I have a couple of cards made using a Stampendous cling stamp and coordinating die set.  Stampendous was one of the first companies that I bought stamps from over 20 years ago and I always liked them as they had some beautiful images.  As I was cleaning out my craft room I found the old catalogue and the images are still lovely and it is interesting to see how fashions have changed over the years.  I picked this set up through Facebook because I loved the image and the hummingbirds in it.

However, I was very disappointed with this stamp and die set.  The image did not stamp clearly and crisply and the dies did not cut very cleanly.  I used a Fiskars stamp press and I know this is a big stamp, but I had no problems stamping the large Fuchsia stamp from Heartfelt Creations and getting a crisp clear image.

However, I was able to make a couple of reasonable cards out of this image but I won’t be making any more which is a shame.  The image is beautiful and at the moment I have these pink Bower Vine flowers outside my kitchen window and they always give a good show.  I have coloured with copic markers and used flower soft for the centre of the flowers for something different.

Materials used:

Cardstock – CTMH White Daisy, Pear and Pomegranate

Ink – Memento

Copics – Pinks and greens (sorry I think I have packed up the chart I have – will try and remember to update this later!).

Stamp – CTMH Framed (NLA)

Flower soft

I have finally got myself a Cricut Explore Air and today I had some fun with some SVG files.  I can’t wait to show you what I have made with it.  I can’t believe I didn’t get one earlier – they are so much easier and better to use.  So watch this space….

Have a good week and Happy Crafting.
