Welcome to the first day of the August 2018 Release product introductions.
Today we are introducing So Much a mini clear stamp set, which was the limited edition December 2017 Release Freebie. From Sunday 19th August, it will officially be available to purchase for those that didn’t get their inky mitts on the limited supply back then!
Hopefully you have hopped on over from the Uniko Blogspot Blog HERE, I’ve shared a previous card using this set over there.
Here is a couple of new cards using this little set…
This little set features a lovely floral bouquet and you will recognise the flowers as a version from Flower Power #6 and the leaves & foliage are from Originally Organic. Along with the main floral image there are a couple of mix & match sentiments.
For this first card I decided to create a fun ink blended colour block section. I was inspired by Pantone’s colour of 2018, Ultraviolet and I opted for a sentiment from another new clear stamp set being introduced tomorrow 😉
I used Post-it Notes to mask off the bottom section of my one layer card and to keep it interesting I angled the section too. I then randomly sectioned off each block, also at an angle and simply applied each of the Altenew Purple ink colours.
The floral bouquet and sentiment are stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and I added some Altenew enamel dots to finish the design off.
Next, I decided on a little colouring and fussy cutting…
I started out by stamping the floral bouquet onto Stampin’ Up! Whisper White card in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I then used some Copic Markers to colour the image in. I then decided to fussy cut the image out, it is a fussy cut, but it is something I find quite therapeutic on a night once The Beans are asleep in bed!
The sentiment is one of the mix and match options from the set and I still prefer to stamp my sentiments in VersaFine Onyx Black ink as I think it gives such a nice crisp finish. The floral bouquet is adhered to the card using foam adhesive and I trimmed the left hand side edge that overhung the card base.
Ok, that’s all from me, but how about some more inspiration, why not grab a cup of your favourite beverage and hop along with the team…?
Well, I thoroughly enjoyed that hop and I am all inspired to give the set even more inky love! I’d love to know your thoughts on this clear stamp set AND if you own it already I’d love you to share some of your projects with me using it!
