Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Grateful Bunch & Blossom Bunch Punch Bundle Wink of Stella Detail

Why do I find it so impossible to photograph glitter??? I really ought to take a photography course to be able to master that technique. Having said that, I’ve not taken a photography course since 1989 when I did old fashioned dark room development as part of a school project when I was 15. So I don’t think I do too badly now given that it’s been self taught and trial and error!

But I really really wanted to show how pretty the Wink of Stella looks on the petals from the Grateful Bunch set and decided that dropping the exposure on my photo was the best way to show it off for you. Trust me, in real life it’s gorgeous!!!

I think this is possibly the first time that I’ve used the Grateful Bunch stamp set since it was released in January. I’ve used the matching punch a lot, but I had a light bulb moment the other day when I remembered that they are paired together on a discounted bundle! Well that was enough to get me going!

My colours aren’t ‘me’ at all really, but I was in an experimental mood, so I ran with it. Not bad. Not sure I’d pair Pear Pizzazz (!) and Blushing Bride together again (anyone else fall over that tongue twister back there?), but I kinda like it!

Anyway, have a fabulous day today, whatever you’re upto!

  8. Good Evening —
    First – I love the card – layout not cluttered; good color combo with the stamping; good pizzazz with the dimensionals and Wink of Stella. So I assume when you said you might not pair Pear Pizazz with Blushing Bride again, you were referring to the card base and mats. If I had created/made this card, I would be very proud, and send it to whomever I was intending. But trying to look at it through your eyes, and feeling something’s not just right, maybe I’d decide the Blushing Bride card base could use a little jazzing up – like maybe with an embossing folder – nothing too busy, but maybe the large polka dots. Or a background stamp with versa mark for a water mark effect. Just a thought . . . In the meantime, I need two birthday cards for this week end, and plan to copy your card – as is!

    I think this is lovely…I love these colors together….so soft and elegant…great job…

  10. Beautiful card, I just had to CASE it, so I did, did a side fold card and different mat measurements, but kept the style and colours 🙂

  11. Your photographs are always great!
    So is your video quality!
    I’d love to see how you set that up!
