I'm going to be sad to see the end of the Occasions Mini catalogue – I'm still not finished showing my customers all the great stamp sets and accessories even though it was extended through to the end of June…which is coming up fast!
Here's another project we did yesterday at my Stamper's Club using the Carousel Notes.
First I embossed the images using white embossing powder. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip. Next, using a dauber, I added colour including Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava. The trick is to gently add colour by small light circular motions with the dauber. The embossing poweder acts as a "resist" to the ink and you get the halo effect.
The Pick a Petal brass template fits perfectly on the notes and that's how I added the little dry embossed dots to the edges and the perfectly punched holes around the outside of the circle.
I used the Colluze (the best cutting tool around!) to cut the circle for the images and finally I added the embossed flowers to the Chocolate Chip envelope.
