SAB Birthday Circles

The fabulous Textures & Frames Stamp Set makes another appearance with this simple Birthday card.

It uses just two stamps from the Stamp Set to create the background in Misty Moonlight and Mossy Meadow. Combined with Very Vanilla, this colour combination is great for those more masculine projects.

The central piece is cut using the Layering Circles Dies, with a sentiment from the Nuts About Squirrels Stamp Set. As I wanted the sentiment on two rows, I used a Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up each part separately.

As I was using circles, I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners to match.

A length of the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack in coordinating Very Vanilla is wrapped around the project.

Finally, the sentiment piece is raised up using Dimensionals.

I really love this stamp set and am going to miss it when Sale-A-Bration is over. Make sure you don’t miss out on getting your hands on one.

For this week’s Top Tips, Tricks & Techniques video, I’m showing you the tone on tone stamping technique.

My project uses a colour combination of Blushing Bride, Merry Merlot, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla.

A panel is stamped tone on tone in each colour using the SAB Textures & Frames Stamp Set.

These are then set at an angle (see one of my previous videos about angles).

A length of Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon in Blushing Bride, from the new July-December Mini Catalogue is then added.

The sentiment is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set and is raised up over the edge of the ribbon using Dimensionals.

FREE Textures & Frames Stamp Set

As you know, I love a stamp set with lots of different abstract shapes and designs.

This fabulous new Textures & Frames Stamp Set just had to jump into my shopping basket as one of my FREE Sale-a-Bration (SAB) items.

SAB started yesterday and runs until the end of September. There is a FREE SAB item for every £45 spend. Plus FREE items for joining my team as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator during SAB too.

My colours of Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Night of Navy, with Basic White are a great neutral combination.

Each image was stamped randomly over the page, some in first and some in second generation stamping. Only the central shape was stamped with a position in mind.

For the sentiment, I used the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set and cut the edges to mirror the angles of the box.

Just a small swoosh of Basic White Twine from the Essentials Pack sits behind it.

A few Mini Dimensionals raise the sentiment up to make it stand out.

This would be a great project for batch production. You could stamp a whole sheet with the random pattern and then just cut it into pieces for the cards.

Why not make a few with different sentiments and give them as a gift?
