Stamp Set Showcase Week 4 (1)

Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen at the start of a new week, and that means a new Stamp Set Showcase and this week it will be

WETLANDS

This is a real favourite of mine. And yes, I have said that about many stamp sets I own, but it isn't my fault that Stampin Up makes such delectable stamps! I spent the day today sorting out all the retired stamp sets from those on my shelves, and put the retired ones  on a shelving unit I use just for retired or seasonal products. I was horrified to see so many go, but in a way, felt very virtuous being able to get all my current stamp sets (including sentiment stamps) all onto just one of my Dressers. I still use all my stamp sets for the handmade cards and gift boxes for clients and my own purposes, but it makes it easier to have all current stamp sets in one area of the workshop,


Anyway, i digress somewhat!. Today's project is using one of Stampin up's new products, the Kraft Grid Journals that great Hostess gifts, or a little gift for any of your friends and family. If you want t o make this for a chap, just omit the doilym and stamp additional stamps to make the background.


And here are the instructions on how to make this little lovely.
Begin by Stamping the small Gull images over the front cover of the Grid journal using Lost Lagoon ink.
Next your need to stock a doily to the front of the Jounal. I found Tombow Multipurpose Glue to be the best product to use.


Now stamp the Goose image on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Partially overstamp this with the Grass image, stamping in Mossy Meadow ink. If you have a new juicy ink pad, you will need to ink off the stamp onto some scrap paper so the colour is less intense.
Die cut this image using the Circles Die Collection . Then die cut the size up using Lost Lagoon cardstock. Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the back of both. Mount the stamped circle on top of the List Lagoon circle of cardstock..

Now get a scrap of Typeset DSP and overstamp using the Lost Lagoon ink with the sentiment of your choice from the Wetlands stamp set. Die cut this using the smallest label in the Project Life Cards & Labels Die. Then make banner tails at the end of one piece.Adhere this label to the lower left section of the doily, after inking the edges of the label in Lost Lagoon ink.



Feed a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim between the layers of the mounted circke. Tie a knot/bow. Take some Linen Thread and wind it around 2 of your fingers seven or eight times  and tie a knot. select 3 blue buttons and add some linen thread to the buttons. Tie knots to each and trim the tails,
use glue dots to stick down the buttons and linen threat hand tied bow.

How easy was that then?
