I have another card to show you which I am entering for this weeks Simply Stampin’ Sketch challenge, using a stamp from Perfect Postage, a new stamp set available from the Spring Mini catalogue. One of the many advantages of being a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator is that you get to earn incentives and this set was one which I received. I will be honest with you and say that, until the other day, this set had not even seen an ink pad but I thought this set lent itself perfectly to the challenge for this week.
Here I have used the heart stamp, stamped in Real Red, and cut out by hand. The set does have a co-ordinating Postage Stamp punch to go with it but, as yet, I haven’t got this so scissors it is! I layered these onto Basic Black, punched with the large square punch, and then positioned them on a piece of Real Red cardstock which had been matted onto Basic Black and tied a knot of Satin Ribbon around before mounting onto a white card blank. I didn’t have a suitable sentiment small enough to go into the heart so I used two different stamps and coloured the words ‘love’ and ‘you’ with a marker using the masking technique and my Stamp-a-ma-Jig.
Come back tomorrow to see a second card made with another stamp from this set.
Unfortunately my cold (and particularly my head) is no better so I am off work today. Why is it that I moan about having to go but I do hate being off? It’s very rare that I am off sick so, when I am, they know it’s genuine but I always feel SO guilty!!
