Winter Stamps day 2...
I am travelling to Lady Green garden centre today for my last Demo of the year! I will also be picking up Wendy my old next door neighbour in Spain who was the original Next Door that named my blog. She is staying with family on meryside ( where the garden centre is for more details of the venue click HERE)
Back to today and its the second day of my sneak peak stamp release and Today I thought I would share the set that has one of my favourite rhymes on it! I have always been fascinated by the Mondays Child poem of old especially as I ma a Saturdays child which seems very apt! I have, thank to a couple of my wonderful blog family, modernised it a little however the original sayings are there. I do feel that this is a perfect go to set for any birthday as it covers every day and makes batch card making for sale really easy as you could make a set of general cards that will feel personalised ( well that was the idea anyway!)
The first card shows the poem used as a topper stamped in detail silver embossing powder by Cosmic Shimmer. The second card also shows one of the sentiments.
Today's card also includes use of the rand new background stamp that matches as well as the brand new Camellia stamp set to die for that match Sue's camellia complete petals dies. The stamp set has all 9 of the different sized flowers and I drew this as I was asked by a lady at the NEC to do one as she had been looking for the matching stamps for a while and couldn't find them! When I told here that it was because they didn't exist she asked if I could make some, so i did!
The next card simply shows the sentiment for Monday being used as the focal element. This card will get its own day on the blog so I can go through the steps of making it at some point. The first card is one of the demo's I will be doing on Hochanda next week so tune in if you want to see how that card was made
