Double Layer Stamping With Painted Seasons Stamp Set

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Painted Seasons Stamp Set double layer stamping technique, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron

Hello everyone! Long time no see, hey?

I’ve been MIA due to multiple sclerosis (that’s a surprise, right hahaha). I had a major MS relapse two months ago when I lost control over my body, or I should rather say over the right-hand side of my body. I couldn’t walk, write (I am right-handed) or brush my teeth. Thank God for hubby and electric toothbrushes! I didn’t even feel my right cheek, seriously.

After a few series of steroids (5 days) and time, time and more time, I can finally do most of the things on my own. Maybe except walking outside – still need hubby’s hand in that matter. But I can finally create! Woohoo! I so missed my inks and stamps. And I have some serious delays in sending customers ‘thank yous’. In sorting ATM!

There’s one thing that MS has thought me for sure: PATIENCE!

I know it’s with a slight delay, as Sale-a-bration just ended. But I really wanted to share with you these two beauties I created using a free stamp set from SAB exclusive Painted Seasons Bundle.

How cute are these, right? And so easy to make. Both are created with a double layer stamping technique and involved some fussy-cutting.

First, I prepared my Very Vanilla double layers and stamped them with my chosen ink pads: Poppy Parade with Pear Pizzazz for a floral card, and Coastal Cabana, Soft Sea Foam and So Saffron ink pads for a succulent one.

Once my double layers were stamped I mount them on to coordinating cardstock panels: Pear Pizzazz and Coastal Cabana.

Next, I adhered them to the card bases. For the floral card, I’ve used the same cardstock for a card base: Pear Pizzazz.

But for a succulent card, I decided to use Soft Sea Foam cardstock for a base instead of Coastal Cabana.

Vellum to the rescue

Because I’ve made some ‘booboos’ while stamping my panels, as my hands are not fully working yet,  I needed to ‘hide’ these. So I cut a square from vellum, briefly 4″ x 4″, cut it in half, and when assembling both cards, I adhered these vellum triangles where needed. Mistakes? What mistakes?! haha

Adding more details

I took a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock stamped few flowers, leaves and succulents in corresponding colours and fussy-cut all my florals and foliage with paper snips.  Quite easy and fun, and great exercise for my hands too.

Because the Painted Seasons Stamp Set comes with images only it opens up endless possibilities as to what sentiment stamps to use.

For my cards, I decided to use Well Said Cling Stamp Set.

Assembling the cards

First, I took my vellum triangles and my fussy-cut florals and tried few arrangments before I decided where to stuck things down permanently.

I adhered vellum pieces, flush to the edges of my cards, and placed the adhesive strategically where I knew it will be covered by my fussy-cut elements.

Next, I adhered each of the elements and my sentiments, and I call it done. I have to admit, I’m quite pleased with these cards.

I’m Sorry For Being Absent

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – I’m sorry for being absent.

Hi Loves! I’m sorry for being absent!

I know it’s been a while, shame on me!

The fabulous Autumn/Winter 2018 Catalogue launched on 5th September but with my health, things have taken a bit of a turn. But I tried since a couple of days to update the links and Autumn-Winter Catalogue pageAnd I will keep updating my blog gradually.

As many of you know, I’ve got Multiple Sclerosis and like with everything MS, the symptoms can vary from sufferer to sufferer. Some of us have symptoms so seriously affecting their everyday life, they end up in a wheelchair, unable to walk or carrying for themselves, others are blessed enough they can continue with their lives as usual with no symptoms at all.

My MS struggles

Well, I’m somewhere in between. My hands are numb, I suffer from chronic pain. I also have a discopathy (it’s a Polish terminology) or how it’s called here: spinal disc herniation (which is probably caused by inflammation caused by MS) – two bottom discs of my spine have degenerated and are causing me severe sharp pain and difficulty with moving around.

But I’m not giving up. I just listen to my body and do as much as it allows me to.b And if it means fewer and unplanned posts – let it be. I hope you understand.

But I do keep up with all my commitments towards my customers, so you are welcome to shop through my page. All qualified gifts will be sent as per usual.

Exclusive PDF Tutorials

HOST CODE for the month of September is TAXBTP9Q.

Orders of £50+ (excl. p&p) will receive from me:

  • a pack of Chicken Wire Elements
  • Exclusive PDF Tutorials for three cards 

How it works…

  • Place a product order of £50 or more (excl. shipping) in my online store in the month of September. 
  • Add Host Code TAXBTP9Q. To claim your reward you must include this code in your ordering process.
  • This August Special Offer will be applied to all qualifying orders placed through my shop using Host Code TAXBTP9Q between 1 September – 30 September.
