While (re)learning the basics is essential and fun, especially for the novice stamper, as well as for those who need to be reminded of all the cool things you can accomplish with just the basics in materials and knowledge, digging a little more into the possibilities is increasingly challenging and lots more delightful!
By this point in the course, I have taken liberty after liberty in my interpretations of the projects presented. I definitely remain faithful to the techniques and ideas being taught, but I have been making the projects more and more my own.
In other words, I am enjoying myself tremendously!
This project introduced (to me anyway) a new way of dressing up those already cool embossed pieces you make in the Big Shot. Love the look!
I so fell in love with the looks of this card, I decided to revamp the complexity of it and had it as one of the four projects my attendees did at the April Stamp-In. Since making this one as part of The Basics course, I have reproduced it several more times. Don't you love the freshness of it??
This project was so much fun to create! As you can see from the photo in the foreground (one of the instruction pages from The Basics), I made quite a few changes when it came to making mine. Don't you just love the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits in your Big Shot?? Crisp and clean.
My take on this project features both heat embossing and dry embossing. Two of my very favorite things to do!
Ah, partaking of this course presented by Stampin' Up! is proving to be great fun and very therapeutic.
