Collage Stamping Technique and ATC Swap using Stampin' Up! In This World Stamp Set

One of the great things we do on my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team Facebook group is a monthly ATC stamping technique share. It's great for our hobby and business demos to get involved in and really fun to share with team members right across Australia when we get our swap ATCs back in the mail.

Last month's technique was collage stamping, and the In This World stamp set from the 2016 Annual Catalogue was perfect for the technique. I also decided to make a card to go with the ATC.

My Stampin' Up! colours are Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and I have also added some Copper Embossing (the butterfly on the ATC, and ink splotches on the card). It's super easy to create this effect with just layers of stamping on a Very Vanilla background.

I really love the vintage look of the stamps in this set. I think this set would be great for male cards as well.

Here's a closer look at the In This World stamp set. Isn't it fabulous? I'll definitely be looking at other ways to use this vintage / antique inspired stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP and sponge brayers

Hello crafty ones, time to share some more cards with you :)

These were two cards I made last weekend when I was on a crafting weekend away with some friends. I wanted to try out the Stampin' Up! Irresistibly Floral DSP and new sponge brayers. The paper comes already clear embossed with a pattern (there are 12 sheets in 12x12" size, 2 sheets of 6 different patterns and only 3 are floral). I used one of the 3 non-floral patterns on this one. These 3 patterns would be perfect for masculine cards.

Emboss resist 1

I used the sponge brayers to apply Dapper Denim ink, and then used copper embossing on the greeting. This greeting stamp is called Stylised Birthday and is a single stamp. I really like it!

Emboss resist 1a

For this next card, I used two ink colours: Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo. The copper emboosing looks reat with these colours too.

There are so many fabulous looks you can get with this paper. I would really recommend you having a play with it. With the sponge brayers, you get 4 sponges and 2 brayer handles in the box too. You can check out everything I've used on these cards using the links at the end of this post.

My colours are Island Indigo, Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry. Make sure you stamp with Stazon Jet Black or Archival Black so the ink doesn't bleed when you colour. I just use the inside of an ink pad lid (squeeze it while it's closed to get some ink to collect there) and a Blender Pen to colour.

I have used a few different sets, but the main one is the new Words of Truth stamp set in the 2015 Annual Catalogue. It's perfect for all things male and teens and lots more. I've also used Gorgeous Grunge and Banner Banter (which coordinated with the Banner Punch). Here's the inside of the card which shows some more of the Words of Truth stamp set (all except the Happy Fathers Day sentiment re from Words of Truth). Love the Everyday Chic Washi Tape too!
