Stampin' Up! Stampers by the Dozen 09/18

Hello, I am hopping again today with the lovely ladies from Stampers by the Dozen.  If you have joined me from Judy or if you are starting with me, welcome - I hope you find lots of inspiration as you hop along with us.


Our theme this months is Fall Florals (or Autumn if you are in the UK like me) and was chosen by Deb Naylor.


I decided to use a new stamp set from the Autumn / Winter Catalogue called Wishing You Well.

The images in this set are so elegant - the gorgeous bow and the wreath will be so useful for dare I say, Christmas?  Sorry!!


I decided to use a couple of colours for my project that I have not used for ages.



I coloured the image with Stampin' Write Markers - not used these for ages either for some reason (might be my love of Stampin' Blends)!  

I used the Stamparatus for this image.  This enabled me to colour the stems and the leaves and stamp first, then clean the stamp and colour and stamp the flowers.

The reason I bought this particular stamp set is the bow - the two tone stamped image looks amazing.  I stamped the bow on some scrap card and carefully cut it out.  I added some Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle too.

Top Tip
The Wink of Stella will react with the ink.  Try not to go over the image too many times or you will blur the image.

This is a quick and simple card that would look lovely in lots of colours.  The inside and the envelope have been stamped to coordinate.

I had so much fun with the first card that I decided to make another one!

Here is a sneaky peek of a project we will be making next week for Coffee & Cards!

I really enjoyed using this stamp set and it would be very easy to make a set of note cards as a lovely gift.

Thanks for hopping along with us again, next up is Tricia who I am sure has something wonderful to share with you.  Don't forget to leave a comment below (we like that). 

Details of the products I used for this project can be found at the end of this post.

Come back soon to see what else I have been doing with this lovely stamp set!

Happy crafting.
