I'm so glad....
Bit later than I planned to post tonight but thought Id better get it done as tomorrow the PC is taken down so it will be a few days before I get online again 0 as far as I know everything will be up and running on Thursday.
A few days ago I mentioned I had a couple of stamped cards to share so this is the 2nd one.
I used some amazing stamps from a new company http://www.aciddropsandwhatnots.co.uk/
The stamps are so different – really quirky – great fun...
And as you can see they work well when simply matted and layered in basic colours!!!
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
6x6 scalloped card blank
sheet of grey backing paper by Papermania
Stamp AD22 Normal
Oddments of black & red card
flat back gems in red and a red card candy
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
The scalloped card blank was folded in half then I trimmed a piece of grey patterned paper to fit the front leaving the scallops clear – then paper stuck in place with double sided tape.
I stamped the lady using Black Memento ink pad, trimmed it down, nipped the corners then matted onto a piece of black card then a slightly larger piece of red card– then stuck to the right hand side of the card front but at an angle again with double sided tape.
Next I stamped 2 of the sayings – I'm so glad at the top with the lovely shaped divider across the bottom and then the 2nd part of the verse.
Like the main image I nipped the corners, matted onto black and then red then added to the card below the printed flower design with double sided tape.
All that was left was to decorate and that was quick and easy..
I used red flat backed gems in the centre of the flowers of the backing paper.
A single red card candy was added to the centre of the large flower on the backing paper
I may when I find my crafty things – add a dot or two of colour to the lady – or even a sprinkling of glitter – but for now she is as she is!!!
And that's the card completed.
this is in the to use or to sell box
Catch you again “sometime soon”– same place folks
