in the pink with magic...
Today and tomorrow I am at Inspirations in Preston demonstrating my new range and Christmas craft dies by Creative Expressions so pop along if you want to see what I will be doing! They should have stock of the new range so it's a good chance to get the products that seem to be selling out so fast!
Today I thought I would share a card that is made using the magic stamps and my spring collection of stamps.
I stared by heating the magic stamp with my heat gun then I pressed the stamp into the Crafts Too rose embossing folder ( Part of the set on this weeks Hochanda shows) this made a large rose stamp. I then randomly stamped this over a piece of white card (8x8") using the rose, grenadine and ultramarine izink die ink pads. It does have a look at an early 1980's wallpaper to me! Next I cut a smaller block form the main piece and again heated and pressed this into the embossing folder this tine selecting a single rose. This i stamped, using the same colours, over the top to give a more defined rose pattern.
I cut this piece into a square for the backing and a strip for the side of the card and backed these in deep blue card from my stash. Next I stamped, using my press to impress of course!, the open flower spray from the Spring flowers clear stamp set onto more of the white card. I coloured and shaded this using the Clear Colour watercolour brush pens and using a water brush pulled out the colour to add the shading.
I matted this on blue and added a pale blue bow to bring the ultramarine colour to the front and finished!
I have been asked loads of questions about the press to impress stamp platform so I am planning a short Facebook live video for Friday morning explaining the way it works and the differences between the other platforms on the market ( you know me I like to explain what something is my favourite!)
