In The Pink...
I keep forgetting to mention for those of you who wanted to get to Ally Pally to see the demonstrations I am working with Hels Sheridan and Pauline Wheeler this weekend at Daisies Jewels and Crafts in Coventry all this weekend. This is one of my local craft shops and so I love demoing there as the people are lovely. They are having a free demo weekend so pop in if you get chance click HERE for details.
Today's card is another using one of my new striplet stamps, this time the Rose trellis which is designed to match both the new Rosebud elements set as well as the scribble rose from the last release. I have designed all of my stamp sets to coordinate with each other or to be used separately. I love the idea of being able to make simple quick cards just by using one stamp.
I stated by stamping the triplet onto a piece of pink card from my stash using perfect medium. I then added Cosmic Shimmer detail silver embossing powder and heat set it. Next I die cut an aperture in the centre of spice of Vintage silver foundation card using the outline die from the Quilted Blocks striplet by Sue Wilson. I then added this over the stamped using foam tape and cut a larger border around the silver piece.
To finish the card I stamped the Happy Anniversary from my Flower Hearts set ( a sample from this set is tomorrow's card in lilac) in silver again on the pink and die cut it using the medium sized flag from Sue's pierced flags die. I made a larger mat for it in the silver using the largest size of the flags and mounted the pink on top. I stuck the flag over the aperture and added a ribbon rose along with some tulle and ribbon for balance to the left hand edge.
A very simple card where I have let the stamp, and a couple of die cuts, do all the work for me.
