Last Stamp...

Happy Thursday,

Yet another card from my stamps to die for show however this one didn't get demoed so I thought it deserved its day in the sun anyway!  This was made using the Prefect Peony stamp to die for that matches the Montreal die from Sue's Canadian collection from Creative Expressions.

I stared by stamping the Perfect peony stamp using indigo mint colour cloud blending ink onto coconut white card.  Next I added sheet of double sided adhesive and diamond sprinkles.  Next I cut the out;in and the inside of the stamped image using the matching dies form the Montreal set.  I then added a 5mm stick on pearl onto the centre of each peony in the design.

I then stamped the sentiment, form the live, laugh, love clear sentiments gets from Creative expressions, again using the ink on a scrap of foundation card.  I foam mounted the stamped image above this and trimmed down any of the backing card that showed around the edge (it doesn't matter how careful I am I always need to trim a bit!

Finally I added it to the front of the card with a bow and a couple of stick pins I made using the Stick Pin elements kit.

Ingredients:
Stamps to die for Perfect peony
Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson
Montreal
Canadian Background

Enjoy...

  12. Hi John, this card stood out for me on your tv show because it is elegant in its simplicity; there are only a few elements to it but they are so effective.

  28. Hi John
    Another stunner. You've said that you cut this out after you've added the sprinkles was this correct?. I love these stamps and the dies you've used.

  29. So nice when a designer is able to 'marry up' stamps and dies - they look great together.

  35. Hi John
    Wow absolutely gorgeous card today, that stamp is so pretty and I must get it.
    Not really been a keen stamper until I started getting yours and I absolutely love all of them. You have given so much inspiration and a brilliant teacher so thank you.
    I had a general anaesthetic this morning so not quite with it so I will read the instructions later as I really have to make this one.
