You can have a laugh at my video today. DH was vacuuming while I was videoing! I have done a basic version of the chalkboard or blackboard technique on the video and you can see a version that is a bit more 'prettied up' if you scroll down. (I thought you would all have had enough of listening to the hoover!)
So with this one, I did thinks a little different. Firstly I trimmed the card a little shorter, so I didn't have to worry about the background stamp being short.
I then used the Squares Framelits to cut the stand out, rather than the trimmer. This was a lot easier so if you have the framelits that is the way to go.
And finally I added a banner using the Banner Blast punch, available free during Sale A Bration.
Today's two 3.5" square cards are made with the fabulous Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper from the new Spring/Summer catalogue from Stampin' Up!
This paper is stunning and here I have MADE myself cut into it - and it was tough believe me! :)
Here I simply used the Pansy Punch to cut two flowers from the DSP and layered it only Whisper White stamped with leaves. The leaves come from the Petal Parade stamp set which is a Sale A Bration freebie at the moment.
In this next one I just adhered a 3" square of the paper onto the card. I added a few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim and the stamp comes from Hello lovely.
This gorgeous DSP comes from a whole suite of watercolour themed goodies in the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue. There are pre-printed cards to stamp on and stamp sets that make you look like a watercolour expert - just have a peek. Click shop now to go and have a browse.
