Decoupage Stamping with the New Vintage Palette

Hi Everyone

At last a chance to update you on what is happening, here at Imagination but first of all heaps of apologies for not blogging more often! The only excuse is 'work', 'work', work, 7 days a week at the moment and of course coming up to the busiest time of the year with Shows on TV and Craft Shows all over the Country.

Hope you like the above offering from Jayne, her Decoupage Stamp Designs are beautiful and
this talented lady has done a fabulous series of Stamps and we look forward to more in the Spring.

The design team have been working overtime, thank you girls, so much, we couldn't do it without you, that's for sure and Jayne has literally been burning the midnight oil, all good artists do their best work at night I'm told!! They have been really busy working on all the Christmas Stamping Stencil sets and the new Decoupage Stamps - Wow how you love em! Kim has done some lovely samples of the Christmas Stencils and hopefully we can show you those in the next few days. Our lovely Jennifer who has been with us for the last 6 years has done some beautiful samples so tune in to the programmes and come and see the cards at the Craft Shows so that you can appreciate how fab they look.

This card has been made using the Poinsettia Decoupage Stamp, mounted onto a background of the embossed Invert Holly Stencil. The stamp has been inked up with versamark and heat embossed with black detail embossing powder. Do this 3 or 4 times and then paint in using the new Vintage Palette. The colours on the new Vintage Palette are beautiful and the colours have an Interference element of colour which really shimmers through. It's a really different look
but a great alternative to the usual bright colours we tend to use at Christmas.

Don't miss our next programme on QVC on Tuesday 20 September and great excitement here as they have given us a bit more time and we are doing a mini masterclass and you can see the Vintage Palette, Silkies, Inkadinks and Mica Spritzer colours being used on the Stencils and Stamps, so that really is one not to be missed.

Again a big thank you to Jayne, Jennifer and the lovely Kim for all your hard work.

Happy Crafting xx

P.S. This must be the earliest New Year's Resolution ever!! but we must blog more often!!!
