Sunday Stamping

Happy Sunday,

I hope you are all enjoying the reveal of the New Sue Wilson Christmas dies over at Sues blog!  There's a Chance to win one of the new releases by commenting!  I will be showing some creations with the dies next week!

Today's card is made just using my Daisy Chains clear stamp set and true detail what embossing powder on Spearmint Foundation card.

I started by stamping the square daisy frame onto the spearmint and embossing it,  I then added a 5mm white pearl in the centre of each flower.  Next I stamped and embossed the heart frame, fussy cut it out and foam mounted it above the other frame.  Finally I stamped the sentiment and mounted this above.

To make up the card I framed the stamped piece with a die cut from Sue's New York Herald square die set in Coconut white.  I then cut a mat using the largest die in the herald sure set.

Next I made a series of mats and layers in the spearmint and white to make this 20x20cm card.

A simple card that's effect is all in the framing!

    1. Good morning, Lynda. A quick answer for you, if you don't mind. Fussy cutting means careful cutting by hand rather than using a die or punch.

  8. Oh by the way, what's with the time on your blog? It's 1 hour in front!!!
