Welcome to part 2 of our Sale-A-Bration Farewell 2016 Blog Hop!
You’ll be hopping around to 8 countries and will visit 15 amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators, each with an inspirational project for you to enjoy. There’s just 6 days of Sale-A-Bration left and we’re getting ready to say ‘farewell’ to what’s been fantastic Sale-A-Bration of 2016.
Currently you’re visiting Sarah Berry from Lancashire, United Kingdom. Hello there! 🙂 You can continue hopping my using the list of names at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.
Yesterday was William Morris’ 184th birthday, he was an English textile designer who created many wonderful repetitive floral patterns for tapestries, wallpaper, fabrics and print. I just love repetitive pattern and have always been inspired by Morris’ work while completing my Fashion and Textiles degree. My favourite pattern of his is called the ‘Daisy’, and is what I’ve taken inspiration from for my card today.
I’ve chosen my favourite Sale-A-Bration stamp set, which is called Flowering Fields. This is a free stamp set you can receive with a £45 order (until 31st March 2016 only!). I’ve picked just one flower and repetitively stamped in Versamark ink, then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Each time I flipped the stamp round to create this pattern, with the help of my friend the Stamp-a-ma-jig!
Using an Aqua Painter, I’ve added colour to the flowers choosing the same colours as in William Morris’ Daisy pattern. The colours I’ve used are Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Mint Macaron.
Thank you for visiting today. If you’ve not seen last week’s part 1, you can start hopping that one here. The next stop on the farewell hop is my super talented friend, Constanze Wirtz from Germany. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
