How have you been! I know, it’s been a while, and just still haven’t got use to working 5 days instead of 4. It is just so difficult to fit everything in, now 48 hours a day, I could probably just about do it 🙂
Done so much that probably forgotten more than can be remembered to be honest, and been a bit naughty in buying more craft stuff than really should, but what’s a girl to do, Whimsy is merciless in producing amazing stuff right now and it well and truly has my heart, along with some gorgeous Stamping Bella stamps, *sigh*, just cannot be held responsible!!!
Today flowers were on my mind as this gorgeous stamp set from Whimsy dropped through the letterbox recently, and had coloured them all up, and was inspired by Faye Wynn-Jones (DT and Stamp Designer for Whimsy), and just thought what a lovely card to have in your stash for a birthday, so here it is.
- Whimsy – Fadoodles Too, Simple Sentiment Strips, Connected Hearts Frame, Linking Train (Sentiment), Fadoodle Flowers, Slimline Wave Length Embossing Folder
- Catherine Pooler – Pierre & St Cloud Sequins
- Make a base card 14.5 cm x 10.5 cm (51/2” x 4″)
- Make a matt layer 14 cm x 10 cm (5 1/4” x 3 3/4“). Adhere to front.
- Cut a piece of card 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm (5″ x 3 1/2“)and emboss with pattern of choice or use designer pattern paper if desired. Adhere to front matt layer.
- Cut decorative heart frame and mount with foam pads cut very thinly*. Adhere flowers randomly to decorate frame.
- Stamp sentiment and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Trim and mount offset across the frame.
- Decorate with sequins to finish.
- For inside – make a matt layer 14 cm x 10 cm ( 5 1/4” x 3 3/4“)
- Stamp sentiment in centre and stamp to decorate edges. I had some spare flowers so added one under the sentiment. Adhere to inside centre.
Thank you to Faye for the inspiration, such a lovely quick card to make and sure anyone would like it.
This can also be used for a basic ‘go to’ layout, and add different images to chop and change the look.
Have a crafty week!
PS *Tip* – Always add a little spot of glue onto the foam pad, this then gives double security that it won’t become unstuck.
