Welcome to The Magenta Tiger.  I am really excited to be participating in the SUDSOL Blog Tour. I’ve created four projects using new products from the New Annual Stampin’ Up!® Catalogue, with the ‘In This World’ as my main stamp set (page 145).

SUDSOL = SIMPLY UNIQUE DEMONSTRATORS SHARING ONLINE

When I became a member of SUDSOL about 5 months ago, I didn’t realize how valuable this online community of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators would be for me.

SUDSOL has it all: extensive library samples, contests, great ideas, class projects, patterns, templates, technique tutorials, workshop planners (current) and so much more. Members have access to both Creative Ideas and Business Ideas in one place.

My craft room is organised by Color. Each Classic Stampin’ Pad lives with the matching accessories I have: Enamel Shapes, 1/8” Stitched Ribbon, Sequin Trim, Thick Baker’s Twine.  One of the most useful tools I’ve come across on the SUDSOL website is the Accessories Chart by Color‘. This tool helps me keep track of my accessories by color. This file contains a chart of the all current Stampin’ Up!® colors and shows the accessories that come in each color. It included ribbons, threads, trims, twines, glitters, embossing powders, buttons and sequins. It makes co-ordinating my projects easier and helps me figure out what current accessories I’m missing from my stash!

  • I’ve punched out the Scalloped Square (2.5 inch) using the Big Shot and the Layering Squares Framelits. The butterfly positioned symmetrically in the square.
  • I used the Banner Triple Punch to create three banners: Whisper White (10mm x 50mm) , Flirty Flamingo (10mm x 55mm) and Sweet Sugarplum (10mm x 60mm).
  • I inked up the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the ‘Sunshine Sayings’ Stamp Set in Sweet Sugarplum ink on the Whisper White banner.

HOW DID I MAKE THIS CARD?

  • I’ve only used one Stamp Set in the making of this card: ‘In This World’ Stamp Set
  • My Tip Top Taupe card base is A6 size (148mm x 210mm – folded in half). I’ve run half the paper through the Big Shot in the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

  • My Shimmery White Cardstock has the sentiment and the key pattern. The sentiment is heat embossed with the new Copper Emboss Powder using Versamark ink. I’ve inked the key in Sahara Sand and stamped it in a pattern
  • Using the Fast Fuse, I joined the Shimmery White and the Sahara Sand Cardstock then wound Metallic Copper Thread around
  • I heat embossed the key in Copper Emboss powder on scrap of Shimmery White Cardstock. I’ve watercolored it with Tip Top Taupe Ink using the Aquapainter.
  • I’ve fussy cut it out with my paper Snips and attached it to the card with dimensionals to add some dimension.
