Hi guys, a little impromptu share this week as I spent some time colouring with a new stamp set and I couldn’t wait to share it. The new stamp set is called ‘From All Of Us‘ and I love it. It’s perfect if you enjoy colouring with any medium and the sentiments in the set are really unique. As a mum of young kids it’s not uncommon I make a card for the soccer coach, or a teacher and I often want to make it from a group of people – so the ‘from All of Us’ sentiments is going to be really handy. Even using it on office cards for a leaving colleague, or maybe a birthday card from the whole family. Lots of options here.
For my cards I have coloured using the Stampin’ Blends as for me they are the easiest medium to use. I had no real plans before I started, so I did what I often do and stamped the image multiple times. When I am colouring, if at all possible I use my stamparatus to do the stamping. The reason I do this is so that I can leave the stamp in position, and re-stamp the image after I am done colouring. Re-stamping allows the lines to be sharpened and to schmick it right up. Another thing I often do (and I did it in this case) is that I restamp in versamark ink and then clear heat emboss over the top. This really does bring something special to the coloured image. On a piece of card measuring 7.25″ x 7.25″ I stamped the image 4 times (by rotating the paper between stamping).
I used a large combination of blends to colour including Pumpkin Pie, Bronze, Ivory, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive and Petal Pink. Probably a few others that I have forgotten. Once all the colouring was done, I cut two of the images out using the stitched rectangle dies, and I fussy cut the other two. So far I have only used the two on rectangles on cards, I am saving the other two images for down the track.
What do you think of this stamp set? Do you like to colour? If so then I think you will love this one.
