Hello You - and Happy Birthday !


I saw a card using this technique on Pinterest and knew I just had to use it for an upcoming birthday !




I love how it turned out. 

You definitely need a stamp positioner such as the MISTI for this type of card.

I cut two pieces of card stock in Whisper White to the same size.   Then I fixed the first one in position in my MISTI and stamped a flower, building up the colour with my daubers until I was satisfied with the colour of the flower.  I then removed it and placed the other card into the MISTI stamping the flower in exactly the same place as the previous one, again building up the colour.   You have to do this with each individual element.   So, stamp a leaf on one layer, remove the layer replace with the other and stamp the leaf in exactly the same place.  So on, and so forth.

When you are happy with your two identical layers, you need to select a word die.   I chose the "Happy" die from my Hello You Thinlits dies.   I placed it across the centre of one of my layers and ran it through the Big Shot. 

Then I took the die cut word, put some glue on the reverse and then very carefully adhered the die cut in exactly the right place on the other layer, making sure that the stamped elements on the die cut word matched those beneath it.

It was a little time consuming, but I quickly became absorbed and I think that the effort really pays off.

Hope my recipient likes it.   Her birthday is on the first day of Spring - so I had better leg it down to the post office to make sure she receives it time.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Bye for now.

Ding Dong The Bells are Gonna Chime !!!!!

No project from me today !

Just popping into to say - I am off to a wedding today !!

One of my fabulous team, Linda Noakes, is tying the knot with her partner Mike, and I have been invited and........................  I am so excited !!

A year ago, I didn't know Linda at all.   She joined my team towards the end of last year's Sale-A-Bration promotion.   

Since then, through a mutual love of paper crafting a lovely friendship has blossomed.   I guess its one of the perks of being part of such a large and diverse network of Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We have attended a couple of workshops together and plan on attending more !  

Also in attendance will be another lovely friend of mine.   Another bonus of being a demonstrator - a fabulous friend and customer, June and her husband are coming along too !    Again, our friendship is one that has blossomed through papercrafting.

One very sad note though - my team mate Jane Daniels who has become a lovely chum to Linda, June and I is unable to attend through illness.  I know she is very upset, but I will make sure we raise a glass to her.   Wishing you well Jane.  Really hope you are feeling better soon my lovely.

Right - must go and put on my glad rags .............I have a wedding to get to ................... Yay !!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have as exciting a day as I hope to have.

Bye for now.
