Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Heartfelt Blooms – Free Sale a Bration Stamp Set
How pretty is this card?
I cannot take any credit for the idea of colouring over the stamped image from the free Heartfelt Blooms set, that firmly lies with the very lovely Helen Watson from my team. She’s in my 2nd level and her upline Dee has definitely taught her the power of sharing. Helen and Dee are both very talented crafters and are well respected members of my team. As well as sharing great ideas, they are so supportive of others and will cheer you on to the end.
Right before Christmas, Helen shared a photo of her card (I’m sharing it here for you too) and I was totally taken with it. So were all the people in the Pootles Craft Forum where she’d shared it! She tells me that she stamped with a really old super pale grey ink then coloured it with pencils. What a clever idea!
I took that same idea and used our Smokey Slate and used our Watercolour Pencils. I think she has far more patience than me, the detail she’s included is remarkable, all though I’m sure she won’t mind me saying that the stamp does a lot of the hardwork too….! It hadn’t occurred to me to try and colour over the stamped image, but i’m sure with a bit of practice, this could become an idea to transfer to other stamps too. Possibilities are endless….
So I hope you’re as inspired by this stamp set and the newly unleashed possibilities from one simple stamp. Because if you can’t be inspired by free (free with orders of £45/€60) then what can you be inspired by….! I jest, I just love it!
