Welcome to the All Stars Design Team’s Blog Hop! I have a very special project to share with you today!
The stamp set I’m using today is one very, very dear to my heart: Beautiful Moments. I was privileged to help design this particular set, and the images are very much inspired by both my daughters and beautiful New Zealand. This stamp set will be available to order 3 January, or if you are a demonstrator, you can order one copy of it now.
I do enjoy taking ordinary things, such as a jar, tin, or notebook and making into something extra special and personal. You can make a simple dollar store item into a treasured gift by using your creative talents to work a little makeover!
Here, I’ve taken an ordinary notebook and covered it with cardstock and a beautiful stamped image to make a special gift for one of my daughters who is living overseas at the moment.
The notebook is covered with Gray Granite cardstock, embossed with the Country Rose embossing folder. I went over the top of the images lightly with the Frost White Shimmer Paint – shimmer paint pretty much never goes amiss! I love that product so much.
I’ve used three images here; the first is the young lady holding flowers. Second, I stamped the separate stamp with more flowers “in front of” her (below her) to make the image a little taller and more “full” looking. Last I added the butterfly. After white embossing the image, I watercolored over the top with Gray Granite ink.
It actually only takes a few minutes, but if you’re doing a notebook, it really adds something special to go ahead and stamp a little something on each page.
I hope you love this stamp set as much as I do! Do you still need to do some Christmas shopping? Make a $50 NZD or more purchase with me during December and receive 12 exclusive tutorials from the 12 designers on this hop for FREE! Or you can purchase the 12 tutorials below for $21 NZD:
