Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah on this wonderful Sunday. Today I’m blog hopping again, but this time with a wonderful group of demonstrators from Australia!
We are showcasing some awesome products from the new Spring / Summer catalogue (or the Occasions catalogue if your in Aus) and had a tough challenge set by the lovely Sam Hammond Donald (Pootles) to only use one stamp set / one die or punch / one ink / one card stock! I will admit to have slightly bent the rules and have added both Whisper White card stock and White Craft Ink!
I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far, and remember to hit the NEXT button at the end of this post to continue along your journey of inspiration!
I knew this stamp and die bundle was on my ‘Must Have’ list as soon as I spotted it in the catalogue back in November. I love an intricate die, and this set is just stunning. So, when it came time to design my ‘hop’ project, Rose Wonder was the stamp and die bundle of choice, and the obvious choice for card stock had to be Rose Red!
As I have already mentioned I have slightly bent the rules, and used two colours of ink. I stamped the Rose onto the Rose Red card base in White Craft ink, before adding a layer of Vellum. I also have to admit that this also isn’t quite the truth, as I also stamped the rose onto the Vellum in Memento Black ink, before colouring the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink and one of my favourite tools – my Blender Pen!
The die cut is actually designed to be the other way around, but it fit my card design better this way. This die cut pops out of the die so easily when you’ve used the Precision Plate on your Big Shot machine. It’s even easier if you use the brand new Big Shot Die Brush too (more on that coming soon!).
This card needed a couple of extra finishing touches; the sentiment is taken from the same stamp set and die cut with another one of the dies from the bundle. I’ve also added some (Pootle) loops of Gold Metallic Thread and a trio of Metal rimmed pearls. The card still needed an extra special something though and so I have added a touch of glitter with the Brand New Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in clear to the vellum behind the die cut. Trying to get a photograph of the sparkly glitter was a little tricky as it is so super fine, but I think I managed it in the end.
Hope you are enjoying the hop. I’m hopping along too to see what the wonderful Michelle Mills has created, lets go….
