Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop, where I have been eagerly awaiting my nominated month to be a 'guest hopper'.
Currently you are visiting Sandra Roberts ~ Hi there, I'm a UK Demonstrator based in my fabulous Stamp & Craft Studio in central Norfolk.
Todays Teams Theme is 'From The Garden'. This time of year the one thing that always jumps to my mind, is the Spring bulbs popping their heads up through the cold soil. With Easter and Mothers Day just around the corner, these calendar events always make me think of Daffodils.
I have chosen to share with you a wonderful Spring themed stamp set from Stampin' Up! called 'You're Inspiring'.
This first card uses the Brick Wall Embossing Folder #138288 on the background. The daffodils have been stamped in Basic Grey Archival ink #140932 and Watercoloured using our Watercolour Pencils #141709.
These are high-quality, smooth colour pencils are perfect for watercolouring stamped images like these. Simply use an Aqua Painter #103954 or Blender Pens #102845.
Every project has to have some 'bling' right ? Our Rhinestone Basic Jewels #144220 have been coloured with our fabulous Daffodil Delight Dark #144585 Stampin' Blends.
For extra sparkle, I added a narrow strip of the gorgeous Myths & Magic 6"x6" Glimmer Paper #145601, a pack of 24 6" sheets in iridescent, light green and turquoise. Just that tiny strip makes all the difference.
This card was inspired by one of my fellow Demonstrator friends, making samples to display at our recent Sincerely Yours shows.
I hope you have enjoyed my contribution for our trip 'From The Garden' today. Please grab a cuppa and continue to look at the other talented Demonstrators by clicking the 'Next' button below and hop to see Emma's wonderful projects.
