Top Tip Tuesday – Lovely as a Tree. Well, let’s face it, Lovely as a Tree is not the ‘Tip’, but it is the stamp set I have used today as part of my card. I am a little surprised that this stamp set is actually going, it is the longest serving set we have, but it is time for it to wave us goodbye. There are actually a number of tips for you today on this card, so let’s look at them in turn.
My first tip is to remember to order stamp sets (and everything else) before they are gone. I am pretty certain that as we get nearer to 4th June, the number of items that will no longer be available will increase. However, the main ‘Tip’ for the day is to ‘GUT’ your card mats. I have used the inside of the Cajun Craze mat to die cut the ‘friend’. No one will know that you have done this, but it is a great way of stretching your supplies.
I used the, soon to be gone, adhesive sheets on the back of the Cajun Craze before I die cut, this turns the die into a sticker and is MUCH easier to use. Similarly, I really can’t be doing with adhering the dot on the ‘i’, life is really too short. To get around this I simply coloured a pearl with the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend. This is a great way to get embellishments that match your project perfectly.
I coloured the image simply by using a Blender Pen as soon as I had stamped the image, so the ink was not fully dry. To pull the acorn out from the leaves, I added a touch of Cajun Craze ink. Finally, I added some Old Olive Sheer Ribbon, which blends nicely with the Mossy Meadow Ink I had used for the leaves.
