Swallowtail Desktop Notebook/Journal


P1000904

swallowtail notebook

I love this little notebook. (you could use it for a journal if you like)

It was quick and relatively easy to do.

I did make a couple of mistakes (like forget to use my embossing buddy before heat embossing!!) but nothing too drastic. It’s the mistakes that make it uniquely mine   🙂

Using the ’emboss resist’ technique (emboss then use a sponge/dauber to colour in image and wipe away excess with a piece of kitchen towel) is really easy and effective.

And I also used a neat little trick using bleach in an Aqua Painter (keep this one solely for this purpose). Credit for this little tip goes to the lovely France Martin.

You could use Stampin’ Up! traditional Stampin’ Write Markers or the new Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to add stronger colour where required.

This technique is such fun to play with.

Go ahead! Give it a go!

I’ve attached a brief doc to detail products used etc.

I would love to hear from you so, any comments or questions, do drop me a line.

Happy Stampin!   🙂

Swallowtail – perfectly romantic

Beautifully romantic image

Good evening my lovelies. I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I’ve been playing about with some new stamp sets and getting into the ‘romantic’ frame of mind. (easy on now lol)

The attached pics are of a little card made with the beautiful Swallowtail Stamp from Stampin Up. Check out my online shop for more detail.

http://card-crafts-by-lilli.stampinup.net

A simple, classy little card to make. Novice card makers will easily be able to make this and feel justifiably proud of their efforts. I have graded it as ‘medium’ skills simply due to the necessity for heat embossing that novice card makers may not have tried before. If you don’t wish to heat emboss, simply stamp using the classic ink pads however ensure to allow enough time for the ink to dry on the vellum as this can smudge.

I should point out that I cannot take credit for the original layout of this card as I know I’ve seen it somewhere else before however I can’t remember where so I’m unable to direct credit to the appropriate person at this point in time.

NB: – For reference; I’ve listed every single Stampin Up item used to make this card however most card makers will already have the basic tools etc required for making this card.

Enjoy!
