Glamper Greetings Watercolour Home Decor using Stampin' Up! Products

Pootles Papercraft Design Team November 2016

Welcome to Week 2 of the Pootler’s Design Team; every Thursday this month I have been tasked with sharing a project using the Glamper Greetings Stamp set from the Autumn Winter catalogue by my lovely friend and team leader Sam (aka: Pootles!). There are 5 of us taking the challenge this month, and you can pop over to Sam’s blog today to see the other projects.

I had SO much fun making my project this week. It’s actually a Christmas gift for a very special person in my life, but I’m almost certain she will never see this to I’m pretty safe to share it here, and Pinterest, Facebook and everywhere else!

Regular visitors to my blog will know that I’m a bit of watercolour junkie, I just love it, and when this stamp set arrived I saw this project instantly, I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to watercolour this fab camper! The Camper is watercoloured in Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand and Pumpkin Pie, with Smoky Slate accents.

One of the many great things about Stampin’ Up! inks is that they are water-based, which means that you can do heaps of techniques with them, including watercolouring. My top tip for watercolouring Stamped imaged is getting the right ink to stamp in in the first place. I use Stampin’ Up! Archival Basic Black, but you could also use Staz-on, these inks are solvent based and so don’t run with the water, so you can watercolour to your hearts content without worrying about muddy images. My other must have for watercolouring is Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Paper, oh and an Aqua-Painter!

I stamped and watercoloured the Glamper on a separate piece of Watercolour paper and carefully fussy cut it to give a bit of dimension. I did think about doing something similar with the bunting, but that might have been a bit much!

Floral Phrases Home Decor Frame

Home Decor Frame using Floral Phrases from Stampin' Up! Uk and an IKEA frame

I’m always looking for ways to get creative. I love card making, but I do indulge my crafty passion in other hobbies too (when I get the chance!), I’m currently working on my Wedding Scrapbook, I have a stash of half-finished crochet projects and I love a spot of painting too. So, when James and I recently took a trip to IKEA on the hunt for a new bed, I couldn’t help but stop in the section of the shop where they have all the frames and candles, material and other fabulous home-y bits and bobs. I love this bit of IKEA, there is always a bargain and it can all be modified in some way shape or form to create something fabulous!

Home Decor Frame using Floral Phrases from Stampin' Up! Uk and an IKEA frame

This frame cost me the grand total of £1, and it even comes in a variety of bright colours as well as this off white. I will admit that it did sit in my heap of crafty stuff (which includes candles, sweeties and an assortment of other odd bits and bobs) for a few weeks before this creation was born.

Bermuda Bay is one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! colours, its just so bright and fun, but I really wanted to make something classy with it. Die cut using the Detailed Floral Thinlits it is so pretty. Sticking down these detailed die cuts can be really tricky, but using the Fine-Tipped Glue Pen it is super simpe, I add a thin line of glue to the outside edges of the die cut, and add spots to the thicker parts to, easy!

Frame using Floral Phrases and Butterflies from Stampin' Up! UKThe bottom left hand corner has a flower of Pool Party inlaid into the Bermuda Bay Detailed Floral die cut. The piece is completed with a double butterfly die cut from Bermuda Bay and Pool Party, a sentiment taken from the Floral Phrases stamp set and a few Pearls!

This piece currently sits in my office, on a shelf above my PC, but I think it might need to find a more permenent home soon.
