Sitting There Stamp Set
After many days of tech hell which I hope to forget soon, last tonight I sat down and created two cards using two new products from my Stampin’ Up! pre-order. The opportunity to pre-order from a new catalogue is one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – and one I love.
When I first received these two sets, Sitting There and Layering Love, I wasn’t really sure that they would become a favourite. But after last night’s play, I love them. For those who have been following my Facebook page over the past few months, you will have realised that I have been significantly side-tracked with technology issues.
I had forgotten how therapeutic stamping can be. After last night’s play, I have now regained my sense of humour and feel relaxed and refreshed. This card was a CASE of card I fell in love with by Lydia from Understand Blue. I placed my own spin the card and it was such fun to play with this set which stamps like a dream. It reminds of the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set released last year – so versatile, fun to use and easy to stamp with.
Doesn’t this card leave you feeling peaceful and relaxed?
The products used in this card will not be available until 1 June but you can certainly place your order now so that you don’t miss out.
Sitting There Card
What do I love about this card? This card features the new In-Colors – Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum (did not use Dapper Denim but will soon). Not only do I love the actual new in-colors but aren’t their names just delightful?
Rather then using Versamark Ink, I stamped the main image in White Craft Ink which is super moist making it easy to heat emboss with. The cushions are coloured with blender pens and sponged. I ‘fussy cut’ the pillows and shaped them using an embossing tool to give them a 3-D effect. They were adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is included in the stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of scrap of Whisper White cardstock, trimmed it down and split it into two. I then used the new Foam Adhesive Strips (not yet available) to give the sentiment a bit of pop. These strips add even more dimension than the Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I will be featuring this card in a June Creative Class.

Things have not progressed as quickly as I would have like. I am still trying to manage multiple email and internet but the situation is slowly improving. iiNet, my new internet service provider had a major outage yesterday and I lost a large number of emails. If I haven’t replied to your email, please resend.
Creative Class Update:
The Better Than Hallmark Creative Class scheduled for tomorrow morning has had to be postponed to the following week (27 May – same time and details) as I have to attend the funeral of a close friend’s mother. I apologise for any inconvenience.
