PAINTED SEASONS – DISTINKTIVE!

Well good morning all my lovelies, 

Hope you are all well and here in Brisbane we have been enjoying some well needed rain, a few bad storms but the rain is certainly welcome!

During the storm yesterday there was a little sunshine in my craft room!!  I had Tilly the dog quivering at my feet but I did manage to make this simple stamped card using the new and beautiful Painted Seasons stamp set.  If you haven’t already seen a Distinktive stamp, this is one of the best.  These stamps are manufactured a little different to normal stamps to give you a beautiful textured and shaded look on your stamped images.  You will notice in the catalogues these are marked with a Distinktive icon.  There are some techniques you may need to know when using these beautiful stamps one of the most important tips is that you should always use a paper piercing mat beneath your card stock when stamping with these stamps.  This gives a clearer stamped image.  I hope you can see from the images the exquisite shading that these have.  SU make it so simple to be an artist!  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Well Written framelits and these are cut out in Mint Macaroon card stock and I also remembered to use the multipurpose adhesive sheets which are a must when cutting out wording or fine thinlets etc.  I am hoping to do a video for you soon on the multipurpose adhesive sheets as they are just a great product.  

The colours used are Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaroon.  The small dot stamp is Crumb Cake.  I love this colour combo and I hope you do too!

The String Technique

Morning all,

Have been wanting to try this string technique for a long time now and finally decided to give it a go today.  So happy with the end result however it did take a few tries and not the cleanest of techniques but a great result!

I used the lovely new Blackberry Bliss for the flower and used Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves.  The leaf stamp is from tranquil tulips (retiring).
