Guest Blogger - Trish Latimer

Last year dear reader you may remember I was asked to design some cards for Craft Stamper magazine.  It's a multi-media craft publication with strong links to rubber stamping.  I shared two of my cards in this stampingscene post and also one that shared the shaving foam technique.  

The editor of the magazine has kindly given me permission to share the projects she made for the same article in the magazine.  The article was highlighting the fabulous Stampin' Up! In Colors of Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig and Berry Burst and here's what Trish told me about her favourite out of the three.

"I'm a lime girl, always have been! I used to use purple and lime green together on absolutely everything, then it grew into lime with turquoise, lime with red, lime with black and white and so on. Lime tops the list for me I think!"

She also shared how she create each of her projects.  
The card above
Creating colourful flowers is very quick and easy if you have inks to hand! I dripped Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig inks onto a craft mat, then spritzed with water. I used the card smoosh technique to add colour to the cardstock, drying in between layers of ink. Once I had a pattern I was pleased with, I made sure the card
was totally dry before beginning to stamp. I used a flower from the Clear Falling Flowers set, and stamped it three times onto my inky background. I fussy cut the flowers, then used them on a simple card. The flowers ‘sit’ upon a scrap of inky cardstock cut from the original background. A few doodled lines later, and the card was finished.

Falling Flowers Inky Canvas

Inky Canvas
The new embossing paste from Stampin’ Up is a perfect texture, it smooths through a stencil wonderfully! The mask from the Pattern Party set was used on my canvas, and once dry I dripped Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst inks over it. Once the ink was dry, I attached two stamped flourishes (from the Clear Falling Flowers set) that I had stamped onto acetate. The next layer to add was three die cut scribble circles from the Swirly Circles set. These were cut from white card, then had the Lemon Lime Twist ink sponged onto them. I coloured card with the two inks as previously mentioned, then once dry stamped three buds and three flowers (again from the Falling Flowers set). The buds and flowers were then fussy cut and adhered on top of the die cut circles.

Thanks Trish for contributing to this post.   If anyone is interested in Craft Stamper Magazine you can buy it through selected retailers in the UK or can subscribe via the website  .  Single print copies are available also and digital copies too.
