There are just not enough stamping hours in a day to make all the cards and projects I want to. Housework can only be ignored so long, children left unfed and laundry piled up before it’s time to step away for a bit.
So when I do have time to use my new products, I find myself reaching for my new favourites. Which are, of course, the first products I ordered from the new catalogue!
This card uses two new faves – Elegant Soiree designer series paper and the Curly Cute stamp set.
I really wanted to use lots of layers of the Elegant Soiree designer series paper for this card. The designs in the package are all fabulous and work together well. In fact. it probably took longer to turn over all of the papers, look at both sides and make tentative layers that it did to complete this card once I started
The greeting is from the Curly Cute stamp set which is new to this catalogue. These greetings are simple but the curly ends dress them up a bit. This set is also available in French and Spanish.
Once I cut and adhered the layers and added the stamped greeting this card was pretty much done. But it still needed a little something. Paper Daisies to the rescue. I took two of the smallest flowers in the package and applied them directly to the ink pad to add colour. The top flower is Baja Breeze and the bottom is Soft Suede.
This card was quick to make. I hope the recipient likes it!
Ever wondered how to use a specific product, make a certain project or how a technique works? I am working on filming videos this week and next week so leave a comment below if there is a topic you would like to see on my blog. Thanks!
