I had a wonderful time playing during the holidays … and still have heaps to share. I love it when I can just sit and get my MOJO going … without any responsibilities or commitments. (This only happens when we are home & sick … I think!!! 😀 ) But … don’t worry … all recovered now … and plenty to show you!
I love my Petal Pizzaz stamp set … and it is particularly GREAT for creating scrapbooking embellishments!!! (I have a couple of pages to show you soon!!! … but not today!!!)
What a great idea for this first card …
Don’t you love how simple this one is … but how pretty! And … how clever is the punched window!!! BTW – the oval image is actually centred in the window … it just looks a little off centre because the card is slightly open!!! 😉 I got this idea from a card created by Amanda Coughlin -> “StampVamps” … (I often find it helpful to “google” the name of a stamp set if you need some inspiration!!!)
- Stamp Sets: Petal Pizzazz, Oval All (Spring Mini)
- Inks: Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink + Almost Amethyst SU! Marker – used to stitch around scallop window
- Cardstock & Papers:
- Almost Amethyst – A5 (21 x 14.8 cm)
- Almost Amethyst Patterns DSP (ret. SU!) – 10.5 x 7 cm
- Whisper White – scraps for stamping & punching / cutting images
- Extras: 3/4″ circle punch, scallop circle punch, scallop oval punch (spring mini), large oval punch, white ric rac (ret. SU!)
You can see how easy it was to create this one … just some quick stamping and punching and cutting! The scallop circle punch fits this flower stamp perfectly!!! Love it!!! Here is another card … that I have used the same colour theme for. (CASED from Margaret L Crawford -> “Stamps Ahead” – Margaret used a different stamp set but similar soft colours.)
Easy! Easy! Easy! And … soooooo quick!!! I stamped all the colours directly onto the white strip EXCEPT the Sage Shadow – which I “stamped off” on scrap paper first. For some reason it had a much deeper colour and stood out too much. (You will notice I forgot to stamp off ONE of the stems!!! 😀 ) But … I had already stamped this strip twice (because I had over done the number of images the first time!!!) … so I decided just to let it go!!! Now … you can all laugh at that green stem … and know that it is really annoying me!!! 😀
