Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Say Hello To - (Something New) Feb 2022



Hello lovelies,

Welcome to our monthly Sunday Stamping Blog Hop.

I am Sharni Haines from South Australia. This month we are say Hello to Something New from the 2022 Jan/June Mini Catalogue. It is always so much fun to try out, play and create with something new isn't it?

I have been having so much fun the past few weeks and I can't wait to see what everyone else has created.


I have made 3 cards, 3 different ways, stepping it up each time.

BEGINNER CARD


1. The first card is designed for the Beginner, or what I like to also think of as simple & quick stamping. For those who like clean, simple and quick cards using very a little amount of product.

I have decided to use the Seas the Day Bundle. This is a very simple card with minimum stamping. I did stamp the sentiment a little wonky...but left it to show that you can always stamp again on a spare bit of paper and glue it over the top...something we have done in class more than once! I used Polished Pink for the octopus and Pacific Point for the sentiment & bubbles. The ribbon is part of a combo pack - Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack - Misty Moonlight & Petal Pink.




CASUAL STAMPER


2. This card is designed for the Casual Stamper who has a little more time, more products and likes to try out and use some different techniques.

The die I used is so fast with amazing results, I left it all white and added colour with the sea animals. The star fish were stamped with Calypso Coral and mounted with Dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out with Happy Hippos Dies.




AVID STAMPER


3. Third is for the Avid Stamper who has the time, an extensive collection of products and a little more experience or likes a challenge!

This card was a lot of fun! The layout is the same, the octopus was stamped in a brighter colour this time (Magenta Madness) and die cut out.



To achieve the finish on the front of the card, I brushed on Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Pacific Point onto a peace of Shimmery White Cardstock with my Blending Brushes, then flicked water over the paper. I dried it with my Heat Gun and then die cut it out.






I used the left over piece from the die cut to cut a piece of the seaweed. ( see diagram above).




I arranged the seaweed so it appears to be part of the ocean scene. Then glued the sentiment oveer the top with some dimensinals and a bit of Linen Thread. I saved the little circles that came away with the die cuts and repurposed them as embellishments back onto the card.
