Happiest Of Days - Final Class Card


And finally ..... the last card created for my August Project class using the Happiest Of Days stamp set.

The sentiment was stamped onto the Vellum layer before it was embossed. I did use Black Stazon for this. It's 'stickier' than our Basic Black Archival so you don't get as much 'slip' with it when stamping on a non-porous surface - and it's quicker to dry.

The Presents were stamped in Basic Black and coloured using the Blender Pen and ink pads. 


A little more of our Whisper White Classic Weave ribbon finished it off nicely :o)


The complete class.

Tranquil Tulips - In Berry Burst


This card wasn't planned at all :o) I mistakenly inked up my Tree Rings stamp with Crumb Cake instead of Sahara Sand - which I needed for a different project. So as to not waste it, I decided to create another card ..... and chose to partner it with the beautiful Tranquil Tulips Hostess stamp set.

I used my favourite In Colour too, Berry Burst.


This Crinkle Seam Binding is really lovely and great to work with. I used it in place of a sentiment this time - so I can use this card for any occasion in the future :o)

Happiest Of Days - Class Card 3


In my August Project class, I gave my ladies the option of either creating a Box and 3 cards .... or 4 cards. This was the 4th card they created if they didn't want to do the box.

It's very simple .... but very beautiful. I think this one is my favourite of all the four I designed. I love the Happiest of Days stamp set. There are lots of completely different images and a good choice of sentiments, all with beautiful fonts.


The two larger flowers were stamped onto scrap card and cut out by hand. They were stamped a second time and just the middle sections cut out, which were layered onto the originals using mini dimensionals.
