#SimpleStamping Saturday Featuring From All of Us from Stampin’ Up! How can it possibly be Saturday again, the time is simply flying by at the moment, or is that just me? Because it is Saturday, it means that I have another #SimpleStamping Saturday project for you. This week I am featuring the oh so cute, From All of Us Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue. Am I the only person who thinks that our wonderful Annual Catalogue hardly gets a look in with all the excitement of the Mini Catalogues?
I am starting with a Basic White Note card and envelope, stamping the large image with Memento Tuxedo Black and then adding the two sentiments. I mention in my Tutorial today that it is a good idea to make sure that the ink is fully dry before you add the colour if you are going to use Blender Pens. Until the ink is fully dry it may smudge a little, so do bear this in mind.
I decided that I wold use both Assortments of Watercolour pencils for this project so I had a wider range of colour options, especially as I would need lots of shades of brown. I have to say that the Ostrich was my favourite to colour and I love that cheeky look on her face (in my mind it is definitely a girl Ostrich!)
Stepped Up Version
My first stepped up version introduces a few additional products, including Stampin’ Blends, coloured card and the amazing Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack. The paper is only available FREE with Host Rewards and it is stunning, lots of great coloured patterns on the A side and Black and White on the B side.
I really enjoyed colouring this image, with all the fun characters and simple drawing letting the cheeky expressions shine through. I think the Black and White patterns are a great foil for the colourful images, all set off with a Basic Black card base. Of course a few jewels is always a good addition to any project.
Further Stepped Up Version
My next version is almost exactly the same as the previous one, but has added dimension. I simply coloured extra images and cut them out so that the ones nearest the front stood out further from the base of the card. This is such a great way to turn a good card into a spectacular card.
I think you can see the dimension in the picture, with the extra layers catching the light and leaving shadows. For another stepped up technique, I added White Heat Embossing on some narrow strips of Basic Black.
What do you think? Do you like them all, or do you have a favourite version, I would love to know, it really helps me plan what projects I am going to bring to you if I know what you enjoy seeing.
