Still Stamping....

Happy Thursday,

Again a little light relief from the die cutting frenzy of this week and back to my first craft love stamping.  Now this card is made using the guys set from Waltzing Mouse that I bought an age ago.  I just wondered what this would look like stamped in a simple sage green on cream and embossed with creative expressions detail clear powder.

I started by stamping the lace detail across the edge of a hand cut card blank then stamped and embossed this again on a scrap piece and fussy cut it out (fussy cutting for the person who asked a couple of Weeks ago means cutting by hand to me at least)  I foam mounted this over the first stamped and embossed image.  I then stamped the sentiment and mounted this under a hand cut panel stamped with a frame form the same set.

The ribbon details and bow is mounted under and through a circle again form this set stamped in the same way.  A simple list of ingredients making a clean and simple card that should look classic.

  1. Another lovely card & it's green-think you have changed my mind about green! Only yellow & peach to go....!

    Love Val x

  4. Hola John
    Gorgeous! Love the simple lines and colour choice, as it does look more lime (tequila!) than sage on my screen. I even don't mind the twine on this. As the great man says, buttons and bows and bleu blanc rouge, all things lively must be used! Love it!
    Have a great day and I promise, no more Adam Ant lol!

  6. What happened in the 80s to make you hate peach bridesmaids dresses I wonder??!! back to today and a suitable card for any occasion. Like the stamping you have done, best wishes Jackie

  7. Great card Suitable for all sorts of people that don't like frilly cards I'm a bit of a cdrom crafter and now mind is buzzing as to ideas of format I can do

  8. Morning John,
    Now what's wrong with peach, if it's teamed with the right colour I think it's quite pretty, it's good job we like different things.
    I'm not a green person but I do love your card today nice shade of sage green, good stamping too.
