Scenic stamping

Scenic stamping with direct to paper


stampin up, feeling sentimental, sponging technique

I've been trying out the direct to paper technique this week. I think I need a bit more practise but I really enjoyed using this technique.

This is something I will definitely try again.

This one I tried using a bit more colour to create a scene.

This one is done using the stampin sponges, rather than direct to paper. It was really quick and I think it was very affective.

Emboss Resist with Shimmer Paint

Emboss Resist Wedding Card

I'm back to the wedding theme again and this time I've used the shimmer paint for an emboss resist technique.


I stamped with the mixed bunch set in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder onto the bottom half of naturals white card stock.

I used a sponge dauber with the champaigne shimmer paint, applying using small circular motions.

Then I gave it a whisper white mount, a piece of whisper white satin ribbon (sadly that's been discontinued) and a naturals white card base.

The photo's don't really catch the sparkle.

Hope you enjoy.

Butterfly Wedding Invitation

Nice Invitation Ideas

A cute card that I made as some samples for possible wedding invitations.

I did a stepped up version of it too, with some texture on the background and a brad.

The background was done using the simply scored, scoring board so would be a great low budget idea for diy invitations for non crafters. The lovely antique brad makes it a bit more sophisticated.
