Here I am with the montly Club Scrap
Blog Hop to inspire you to make the most
of your stamps and papers.
Thanks for hopping here from Tricia's blog
with her always inventive ideas.
I absolutely love this new kit and truly,
Club Scrap always knows what we need!
Yes, indeed bbq paper was what I needed, because my dh
got a new bbq for Father's Day this month.
These scrapbook pages look like formula 5&6 from
the free ALSB instructions. I had to move it a bit
around to make it work for my photo's.
You find the ALSB instructions HERE.
Fot the bbq glove stamp I used the kissing technique,
for I did not liuke the glove to be just plain.
Not familiar with this technique?
Here is how you do it:
Take the glove stamp and a background stamp
and an inkpad.
Wet the glove stamp with ink.
Take the background stamp and gover the glove
with it (a few times) and take it off.
Now stamp the glove on the paper.
This is the result.
If you don't get the result you want,
or if you don't like it. You can also stamp the glove
and take a background stamp and
use a darker color then the background
to stamp over the glove.
Cut the stamp and maybe color it a little
and this is the result. Ready for use.

My next project is a card.
From the outside it looks quite simple.
Just some design paper and a cut apart.
But here is the inside:
and you see this is a pop up card
with the use of the great embossing folder
that cae with the kit.
Here you see where you can write your message.
Close up of the picnic basket.
How to make it?
This is the start of the picnic basket.
Paper is 3,25" x 3,5" and the fold line is
0.75"from the top.
Emboss the basket upuntil the fold line vertical
or horizontal, whatever you like best.
And this is one of the finished baskets.
Another way is to stamp and coor the basket
and emboss the handles.
For the card you need two 5,5"x 11" pieces of
paper (decorated for the outside and plain for the inside)
Fold in half. For the plain inside you make two cuts
like you see above on the folded side.
Push the square towards the inside of the card.
This is where you glue the picnic basket.
And here my last card. This is a gatefold card,
with the use of decoated paper stamped with
a piece of melon for extra decoration.
One of the cut apparts is used for the center piece
and the melon parts are from the digital version
of this kit (and I love using the images here)
On the seeds a drop of glossy accent is added.
Here you see where the ribbons are placed.
Underneath the middle panel and the right one.
The inside is decorated with the melon border from
the Art Nouveau stamps.
I used fuchsia and leaf to color the stamp.
Thanks for stopping by.
