Hand Stamped Sentiments 280

One of the many lovely things about the summer holidays is more craft time. The first challenge of the year from Hand Stamped Sentiments is this sketch.

I'm continuing my experiments with the Amazing You stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalogue, along with Stampin' Blends.

The flower was stamped twice in Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin' Blends - Daffodil Delight with a touch of Pumpkin Pie. The centre petals were fussy cut out of one flower and popped up on a dimensional on the other. The flower is in a soft pool of Smoky Slate, again created with Stampin' Blends.

The outer edges of the flower have layer of clear Wink of Stella to give some sparkle. The stamen area has been stippled with a black marker and a white gel pen to add some definition to them and the centre completed with a clear faceted gem.

This stamp set is a Sale-a-bration product, available for free with any qualifying order of $110. 

If you live anywhere in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd love to help you with ideas and Stampin' Up products. If you would like a copy of the new Special Occasions Catalogue or the Sale-a-bration brochure and don't have a demonstrator, then contact me. You can message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below.
