Moonsong Designs Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – Pootler’s Design Team – December 2016.
Good Grief! What have I done?
My usual motto is “deny everything, admit nothing and never volunteer for anything,” and here am I ignoring my own advice.
Each month my Team Leader Sam, throws down the gauntlet and selects 4 or 5
victims, erm, volunteers and sends them all a stamp set, and asks them to create a number of projects with that stamp. That number of projects depends on the number of Thursdays in the month. As there are 5 Thursdays in December, we need to come up with 5 projects.
I was delighted to be selected this month, and really happy when I saw the stamp set “Live, Love, Grow.” I haven’t told Sam that it was a stamp set I had considered buying and had not got around to.
It it an interesting set, and a couple of the stamps have an oriental feel to them. If you read my blog regularly, you will know I am a bit of a nut for all things oriental. This stamp looks to me a bit like a lotus, and I wanted to keep the design really simple.
I stamped the flower in Sweet Sugarplum ink onto Whisper White cardstock which I matted onto Sweet Sugarplum card with dimensionals, cut about a centimetre bigger. I did this 4 times, and then layed them out on to the card blank which was in Whisper White. When I was happy with the positioning, I fixed them to the card blank with snail.
