First Frost Easy Mini Album made from cards - Susan Wong for Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team 2018


Welcome to the final Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog hop for 2018! My time as Artisan is up and - WOW - what an amazing year it has been. I'm so immensely proud of these gals and so deeply thankful for the friendships that I've gained in this group of diverse and talented artists. Thank you for joining us on the ride! We do it all for you!

In early November I hopped across the ditch to the Melbourne Onstage event for some time with my Aussie pals. (If you don't know, that's a bi-annual Stampin' Up! demonstrator par-ty!) Here's a little mini album I made to remember our weekend together...

#SimpleStamping Stepped-Up! - Southern Serenade

Hey all - here's my post that featured on the Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog last week!

Southern Serenade by Stampin' Up! card - Susan Wong

Stamps, ink and paper. They’re the stripped-back basics of stamping that we know and love. Quick and easy cards are where we all begin, but have you ever wondered exactly how to ‘step it up’ into an Artisan-quality project? Here’s an example to get you thinking…

Southern Serenade by Stampin' Up! card - Susan Wong

Stamp sets like Southern Serenade (145921) are great for simple cards because they have versatile sentiments with one or two main images. They work well for single layer cards and basic layering.

TIP: For two-tone stamping like this, simply ink up the lighter colour ink on half of stamp at the edge of the Stampin’ Pad, then the darker ink on the other half before you stamp. If you have Stampin’ Write Markers on hand, use the brush ends to colour and then huff on it and stamp.

From there, when I want to #makeacardsendacard that’s extra special, it’s the texture that really does it for me. So, I stepped-up my basic design above with the Tin Tile DTEIF (147906), Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109129) and watercolouring, Colored Doilies (146935) and trims (124262, 138401, 144128).
