Hi! Welcome to the inaugural blog hop of Stampstories! We are made up of past Stampin’ Up! Artisan’s from Europe and we are delighted to be sharing with you once again. We will be hopping together once a month, and we do so hope that you will pop by and see us and all we have to share with you.
We anticipate that our visitors will speak a range of languages, so please hit the Google Translate button on each website if needed or feel free just to look at the pictures 🙂
This month our topic is ‘Colouring’, which of course terrified me as regular visitors to my blog will know that I do not colour! However, I have recently treated myself to a few of the new Stampin’ Blends and so I decided to have a play with them for my my first Stampstories blog post.
Even though it’s a colouring set, I just loved the whimsical images in this Bird Banter set from Stampin’ Up! I’ve used Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party & Daffodil Delight to colour my parrot (the olive is just for the leaves). I forgot to get the Smoky Slate, so I just did the beak with a Blender Pen and ink.
I’ve cut him out using Paper Snips and popped him up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I definitely need more practise with my colouring, but I’m pretty pleased with my first attempt!
I do hop you will join me in hopping around Europe to see all our inspiration – all the ladies are fabulously talented and you will see some amazing projects. Until next time.
