AWH October Blog Hop: Designer Series Paper

Hi!


Tonight the Art with Heart team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

I decided to go with the Just Add Colour SDSP. It wasn't a pack that originally took my fancy, but once I got hold of some and had a play, I was hooked!

I especially loved the house paper, so that was the sheet I reached for when starting to think of ideas for this month's Blog Hop. I found this section that was easy to trim down to a small row.  It's slightly longer than a regular sized card, but that didn't worry me. I coloured the houses with my Watercolour Pencils, and used my Wink Of Stella pen to help blend them in places - especially the windows.

Eclipse cards have been all the rage lately, so I decided to turn this card into one. After I'd coloured the houses, I used my Large Letters dies to cut the word 'home' into the panel. I then adhered the panel to a piece of Basic Black cardstock, and then adhered the letters back in place, but with Dimensionals so that they sat up. From the side you can see bits of black popping through, but from the front it is much less obvious,

Does this house on the inside remind you a little of a castle? I think it's the roofline.

Well, that's it from me. Next you're off to the blog of Claire Daly. She's always got something amazing to show on her blog.

  6. Great use of this DSP pack Tina! Your colouring is lovely and I'm contemplating buying the letter dies just so I can try the "Eclipse" technique. :)
