NEW SERIES! Frantic Friday. Stampin’ Up! Meadow Dies. I am going to be totally honest here. I originally thought I would call this new series ‘Five on Friday’, meaning five minutes. Now, I can put a project together quickly, but five minutes is just too quick even for me. So, I have decided to call this Fast on Friday. I will still try to complete the project in as near to five minutes as I can, but it will take a little of the pressure off. The premise is that I will do a lot of the prep before I start the video, but any stamping and die cutting that can’t be done until after the stamping, will be done on camera.
For my first project I used one of the dies that was left over from my Facebook live on Tuesday. This is from the Meadow Dies in the new catalogue, which ‘Bundles’ with the Quite Meadow stamp set. I grabbed a Basic Black card base and some Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper as my starting point for my project.
I added a Melon Mambo Mat and some Black and White Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo. With my basic supplies in place, it was probably the heat embossing that ate up most of my time finishing this card off. If you watch the video (which is very short for me!) you will see how much I missed five minutes by.
After recording the video, I decided to use up the final die cut from Tuesday’s Facebook Live. This time I selected the Artistry Blooms Paper, which is the perfect foil for the die cut I had left. I mounted it on Mango Melody.
The tag was added simply by cutting the top of the loop/hole and feeding it round the branch of the die cut. By being careful about where you cut, you can hide it behind the black of the die cut. I popped the die cut up on Black Dimensionals for some added pizzazz! I hope you enjoy the new series, and I hope my blood pressure can cope with it!
