#SimpleStamping Saturday – The Gang’s All Meer. We are so very close to the end of Sale-a-Bration, so this is the penultimate edition of #SimpleStamping Saturday Sale-a-Bration Special.
I have chosen to look at The Gang’s All Meer stamp set again. This is such a very cute set, great for children and adults, which means it is a really useful set for so many makes. I particularly liked the sentiment ‘We’re Here For You’, which is ideal for these interesting times. Although we are having to distance ourselves physically, there is no reason to distance ourselves completely. Sending a virtual hug in a card is such a great way to keep in touch with our loved ones.
My #SimpleStamping version uses a few of the stamped images, all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then coloured with Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. Remember to make sure the ink is fully dry before you blend, to avoid smudges. I used both sets of Watercolour Pencils individually just to show that you can. To be honest, my preference is the one I did on camera, using just the Early Espresso Pencil for the Meer Cats, and with a hint of Paper Pumpkin for the sand.
The first stepped up version adds some coloured card and some Garden Lane Designer Series Paper, as well as the So Very Vellum Paper, a Level 1 item from the second release of Sale-a-Bration. I changed out the pencils in favour of Stampin’ Blends and added a few punches as well as some Linen Thread and Gold Metallic Pearls.
My final version includes 2 different ways to use Heat Embossing. The first way is for the Black outlines and the second is to make a background of cacti using Clear embossing powder. Everything else on the card is the same as the Casual Version above. As ever, the video shows how I made the simple version and explains the other versions.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and that they brought a smile to your face, even for a few minutes. Remember that my videos not only include tutorials, they also include my personal brand of madness, so are always good for a laugh!
