UK Stampers Forum fireworks and Christmas bunting

Posted by

I’m on catch up for a couple of projects I never got round to sharing on my blog… two bunting swaps… one themed Fireworks and the other themed Christmas.

So the fireworks one I used paints to create the background and then did lots of stamping using Paperartsy stamps and a few other random stamps that I thought looked a little like fireworks. For each of them I stamped in distress oxide and then heat embossed with clear.

I then stamped the celebrate in versamark and used a sparkly white powder to heat set that. I added the little banner with good times and then some dots of stickles to add more sparkle and shine.

For the Christmas bunting I went for a patchwork background with different papers…

I then cut it down and sewed each of the seams and round the edge.

I then stamped the Darcy snowflakes and heat embossed them and added the Tim Holtz tree die cuts (these were cut from an alcohol ink background)

Next I created the little hill and stamped the snowman and coloured him with water colours.

I added the snow by using some matt medium and then sprinkling on the embossing powder.

I finished off with a Tim Holtz sticker.

Super happy with these bunting… and how different they both are in style.

Happy crafting!
