SAB #SimpleStamping Saturday The Gangs All Meer. Welcome back to my #SimpleStamping Saturday series as we continue to look at some of the items in the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue. Today it is the turn of the stamp set, The Gangs All Meer. When I was at the OnStage Live Event back in November, these little guys were everywhere. There were photo booth opportunities with them, they were on badges, all sorts of places, there they would be. They certainly helped us to keep smiling.
Today’s project is inspired (a lot!) By fellow Demonstrator Jackie Aitkin from Western Australia. Jackie was one of the Artisan Design Team Members last year and her work is AMAZING. You can find her and the project that I have been inspired by HERE. You will see that the Simple version of the card I have made is pretty similar to Jackie’s original. Colouring in the image to get a silhouette is so inspired!
My second version adds some embossing, with the Subtle folder, and some Vellum to form the Sun. This version was almost easier than the simple version because I didn’t even have to worry about colouring inside the lines. I did the fussy cutting first so I could still see the image. I added some Braided Burlap Trim so they had something to stand on, and moved the sentiment up to where they were standing. Some Clear and Frosted Epoxy Droplets (well Frosted in this case) finished the project off.
The Avid version is very similar to the Casual version, but I punched through the layers of card with the circle punch and added a layer of Vellum between the embossed layer and the mat. On the inside of the card the Gang are all stamped again, but without the silhouette. The difficulty with this one is to make sure everything lines up perfectly.
So what do you think? Do you like what I have done with Jackie’s original idea? I hope you will think about giving this a go. Remember that the stamp set is FREE with an order of just £45 before P&P.
