We'd like to share some projects with you using the new London Collection! The Creative Team have been busy and have come up with some fabulous ideas using the rubber stamps and all of the paper products. Let's take a look:
From Teresa: This image from London Vol 1 stamp set has been stamped with Midnight Blue StazOn onto kraft cardstock. I mounted this piece onto a navy mat and machine stitched around it to create a border. A Tim Holtz Philosophy Tag hangs from some jute twine.
From Teresa: I stamped the double decker bus in black, masked it, then stamped the large Piccadilly Circus image in grey over the top of it. I added a teeny tiny pop of colour to the flag on the bus with my Marvy Le Plume markers.
From Rachel: Westminster Abbey was stamped in Archival Sepia ink onto kraft cardstock and adhered to a red ATC back. I stitched around the edges with no thread, just to get the dots. The postage mark was stamped in Vermillion Archival ink and attached with foam tape. A Tim Holtz ornate corner finishes it off!
From Rachel: Stamped onto glossy cardstock with Archival Jet Black inkpad. The image was coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens: 15 Olive Green, 46 Crimson Lake, 26 Silver Grey, 24 Beige. I used a Blender Pen to dilute the darker colours.
From Teresa: I stamped a bunch of iconic images from the London Vol 1 stamp set in red, blue and black for this card, cut them out, distressed the edges and sponged all over with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I sprayed a few droplets of walnut ink over the top for an even more aged look, and raised some of the images with foam dots.
From Teresa: I just can't bleieve the detail in these stamps!! :)
And now for some projects using the paper products: Photochips, Montage, Filmstrips and Wordstrips!
From Teresa: Three gorgeous filmstrip images and some words from the wordstrip on a background made with a Tim Holtz embossing folder (Bricked) sponged with some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. There's some hand-dyed calico right at the back too.
From Rachel: I stamped a couple of the smaller stamps from London Vol 2 stamp set, then adhered 4 smaller Montage images into a grid. Then drew lines in between to finish it off!
From Rachel: I found this chipboard fram (Deluxe Cuts) in my stash and it was perfect for the larger Montage images! Adhered it all to a card, added a Wordstrip on top to finish it off.
From Teresa: I stamped the bridge with some Stone Gray StazOn ink and then coloured the bridge images from the Montage sheet with Distress Inks. The word from the Wordstrip forms a bridge between the coloured images - love a punny card!
From Teresa: I have used the very imposing Buckingham Palace image from the Photochips pack for this monochromatic card. There are a couple of shapes cut with Nestabilities under the words. I reckon this would make a great dinner invitation - "Come dressed for dinner with the Queen. No riff raff!" LOL.
So as you can see, some great ideas on how to use the London Collection! We have even more project ideas to share with you, but will save them for another day! Hope you like these - we'd love to hear your comments!!!
