I haven’t yet purchased the Watercolor Christmas Stamp set and so I wanted to see if I could use a different stamp set for the sentiments as a substitute. After all, sometimes we have our favourite sentiments that we want to use. I used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set instead and loved how the cards turned out. You could also use the Oh, What Fun stamp set as well and really any other sentiment stamp set that you own. The Watercolour Christmas Project Kit is really quite versatile and you can adapt any stamp set that you wish.
Below is a video produced by Stampin’ Up! on the kit and how to assemble the cards.
The pocketful of sunshine stamp set presentation continues.
I wanted to make a sampler and experiment with all the stamps that were in the set so created this sampler. I took some photos of my girls hamming it up in their sunnies.
I’ve used the Color Theory paper stack in conjunction withe the stamp set.
I really love how this turned out. I just need to get the hubby to put it up on the wall for me.
The last project I made was this banner. When I saw the pocket stamp I knew it would be great to create a banner with it and combine it with the alphabet stamp set. The colours I used were Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Old Olive & Berry Burst.
Continuing on from my last post I wanted to share some more projects that I’ve made to present at Stamp Camp using the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle.
This next project is a gift card holder for Fathers Day. I made a belly band to hold it closed. It is fairly simple.
This next project is a christmas card that I made while at Stamp Camp using the pocket framelit. The sentiment is stamped onto the money shape that is in the framelits dies. I thought it was a cute way of using it.
This next project is using the pocket die and I used a 1″ strip of DSP to make it into a pocket and used ribbon as the handle.
This next project is using the new mini pizza boxes and I used the sun shape to cut out the window with the sun rays.
All of these projects are fairly easy to recreate and if you’d like to make them yourself then get yourself the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle and get creating.
At Stamp Camp there are presentations of techniques or stamp set spotlights. We get the opportunity to see new techniques and be inspired. This years presentations were on bleaching, embossing paste, faux silk, Retiform or Block technique.
The last presentation was by me and I did a Spot light on a stamp set called Pocketful of Sunshine (143719 $30.00) and matching Framelits (143750 $41.00). You can save 10% if you buy these two items as a bundle (145345 $63.75)
I started making samples early and searched Pinterest to see what inspiration I could get. I made these cards after being inspired.
Then I wanted to use some of the Embossing paste to create a wall and create a graffitti wall with the stamps.
While at Stamp Camp I was told about a card similar to the one below. I used gold embossing powder for the bottom glasses.
If you’d like to purchase this stamp set or framelits, you can contact me.
