Hello Today – double page layout with Heidi Swapp

7:00:00 AM

I think the reason I love Heidi Swapp products so much is because of her elegant and versatile style. There’s something for everyone and even if the collection scream ‘girl’ there is plenty in there to make boy projects too – it really is that versatile and adaptable. So when I got my hand on the new products that will be available from The Wholesaler I was in heaven! The new paper pads are so amazing, colourful and simply gorgeous. The combination of teal, navy, brown and pink is stunning and with those combinations you can really do just about anything you set your mind to.
So I had some special photos taken recently and since the papers was calling me to use them I had to make a double page layout. I combined some pretty pastel shade papers with bold navy, gold embossing and stickers and subtly background stamping – everything about this layout I really love, and I think it has everything to do with the gorgeous products from HS.

I used one of the large background stamps and embossed it in gold onto white cardstock. Once the embossing cooled down I used some inks to add colour to the background to match the patterned paper. Embossing still is one of my favourite techniques and always looks stunning!
In the background I used some of her wording stamps and repeatedly stamped the word ‘grateful’ in a light grey ink pad. I stamped it so that it would overlap each other in a random fashion inking once and stamping twice to give me darker and lighter images. A fun and totally random effect.
I love her new range of glitter stickers in her handwriting. They really are super versatile and easy to use. Any layout without writing in some form or manner will be incomplete, and these are just beautiful!
I can’t wait to get my hands on the next set of new products from Heidi Swapp – functional, beautiful and inspirational!
Two tone stamping with Mister Huey inks
step 1 - Mist classic tan Mister Huey onto your craft sheet, on top of
the tan mist Gold Mister Huey ink
Step 2 - cut a circle from fun foam and adhere it to an acrylic block with some double sided tape. Press the custom made stamp into the ink and move it around a bit to mix the inks
step 3 - carefully lift the stamp and press it onto your cardstock where you want your image. Hold your paper and lift the stamp
TIP: Keep in mind, if your stamp is too wet with the liquid ink, when you lift if the ink will simply drip off of the stamp and even land where you don't want it to land on your project.
because Mister Huey inks are not too runny you shouldn't have a problem but should you mist the ink with water you may want to be aware that this could happen
