Welcome to another Thursday Time Out!
Firstly, ‘Thanks’ for bearing with me while I sort some blog and other issues out. I really appreciate your support and coming back to see what I share.
Now as most of you know Stampin’ Up! have withdrawn the Blendabilities – how sad is that? I did love to colour with them but I’ve sent so many back due to manufacturing issues I’m glad they’ve decided to withdraw them until they can work the issues out – sadly the manufacturer doesn’t see a problem with a high fail rate. Stampin’ Up! pride themselves in their products and their quality and its a huge thing for a company to withdraw a line like this.
Now you know a few of our newer stamp sets were designed specifically for the Blendabilities and now they are no longer available what do you do with them? Well you water colour them of course!
One such set is the ‘For Being You’ set in the new release of Sale-a-bration products. I took the Stampin’ Up! sample card from the flyer and recreated it with water colouring ….
I’ve stamped the ‘Thanks’ in Jet Black Stazon and used my Aqua Painter and Ink Pads to colour the letters in. I’d forgotten how much I loved colouring like this!
This is the same card but I’ve just popped some Dazzling Hearts onto the card to lift it – it’s amazing how a little sparkle adds so much to a card.
So as you can see from these cards you can get the same effect from our Ink Pads as you can from the Blendabilities. We did this one at my Latte Girls Team event last Sunday and they were pleasantly surprised at the outcome – a couple had never done this technique so it was good to show them!
Stepping it up ….
Talk about stepping it up I have a couple of announcements for you today!
First one is I’m stepping up my Thursday Time Outs and from next week (26th March) I’ll be holding a Time Out Class at my place.

In the Morning Session we’ll make a card and in the Afternoon Session we’ll make a box or bag – you can do one Session for $6 or both Sessions for $10! What a great way to take a Time Out!
