Stampin' Up! Spiral Flower Die


My techniques class is tomorrow and I'm still working on getting ready for it.  That trip out of town really threw a wrench in my plans and I'm a bit behind.   We've been working on catching up the lawn and getting Laila set up with a sandbox, but I finally found some stamping time last night.   I pulled out my gesso and here's what I came up with.  The Naturals Composition DSP (sadly, retiring) is perfect to use with gesso as it resists it and you get this awesome look with little effort!  I finally ordered the Spiral Flower die and I LOVE it!  You can't really mail this card easily, but it's perfect to add in a gift bag with a gift!


We don't have a home phone anymore, but Laila had fun with an old one at my parents during our visit.  :)   She's so funny.

Wow! This is gorgeous, Rita! I hadn't thought of using gesso with this dsp. Great idea! And I love the flowers. I just got this die this week and haven't used it yet. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great weekend!

Rita, what is the gesso technique? I love the look of the Natural Composition DSP that way. One of my favorite papers. Please share the technique with us that don't already know. Thanks.

Wow, the Natural Composition paper looks fantastic with Gesso! Great idea, Rita! Maybe I should actually open the pack I bought when it first came out...

That background came out beautiful! I may have to try that before the paper officially retires.
