I had a great time yesterday during craft club at The Centre @ Halton which is near Lancaster, Lancs. This time I’d chosen a brand new stamp set, Awesomely Artistic. For those of you out there who love Gorgeous Grunge (Wood-Mount | Clear-Mount) and Butterfly Basics (Wood-Mount | Clear-Mount | Photopolymer | Bundle & Save too!), this set is like a mix up of the two. Featuring arty paint splashes, ferns and a dragonfly!
Yes, I did say Dragonfly. Those Stampin’ Up! die hard fans out there will chuckle to themselves, we’ve not had a Dragonfly in a stamp set for about
3, 4, 5 years?! If only there was a punch to match, but we can’t have everything now can we. 😉
Now what makes this card a ‘Flip – Flop’ is the way you open it. On my samples the flap opens up to the right, then the left to reveals a double layer of space for you to write your message. You can of course make this so it opens in the opposite way, and also an upright standing card.
The colour palette for the collection of three cards is Watermelon Wonder, Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette. In with that I added Whisper White, Sahara Sand and a touch of Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede. Mmmmm!
Everyone received a full pack of Perfect White Accents in their kits, these are brand new in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue. They are pretty much a cross between our Pearls and Epoxy stickers. They have a iridescent look, and are a sticky flat dome. I met a new attendee Sue who did a fantastically well, having not used Stampin’ Up! products before. She even turned this happy accident, where the flip/flop was cut not score, so she improvised and came up with an alternative. Be sure to check back soon for a YouTube video recapping this card technique.
