Picture Perfect !

Hello and welcome to today's little project.

Sometimes you don't need a special occassion to create a card.   Just dropping someone a line is always so much nicer in the form of a pretty card in these days of electronic mail.  With that in mind, I created this Note Card which will be winging its way to a very nice lady.

When I saw the new stamp sets in the new 2016 Spring/Summer Catalogue I just knew I needed the Picture Perfect Photopolymer set.

I featured a project made using the beautiful three step Rose stamp in my last Blog.   This time, I decided to have a play with the gorgeous Humming Bird 4 step stamp.    My new Misti was just perfect, allowing me to stamp with precision.  It made the job so easy. 

So I stamped up my little Humming Bird on Soft Sky cardstock using Soft Sky, Pool Party and Black Versafine Inks.

He looked a little lonely, so I dug out an old favourite of mine, my Hopeful Thoughts stamp set and added some pretty leafy detail. Once done, I dry embossed a frame around the edge of the card stock and mounted it on some black.  I added a punched strip of cardstock beneath the black.

I took my Soft Sky card base and again, found another old favourite, the sadly retired large En Francais background stamp which I stamped in black ink.   I popped on my layers and made a tag with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, an then stamped on the sentiment "Just a Note" which is part of the Picture Perfect set.  I also added a pretty stamped lacy detail to the tag which is from another new set called Grateful Bunch.

I dyed the little wood veneer heart which comes as part of the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit and added a solitary Pearl embellishment.

This is the video tutorial to demonstrate the four step stamping technique using the MISTI.


I do hope you like today's project and thank you very for stopping by.
