Happy August everybody!! Yes another month has passed us by and we are picking up speed towards Christmas....its quite frightening actually, I really need to work on my Christmas cards!!
Another pile of cards I need to work on is my 'Birthday card' stash, so thank goodness we have a 'Birthday' challenge at Little Tangles this month!!
I was extremely lucky recently to receive an unexpected present in the mail from my fabulously lovely friend Coni of Which Craft? I don't know how she did it but she sent me a stamp and die that I've wanted for months but never had enough money to purchase. Its been sitting in my Cart at Neat and Tangled for so long but I didn't tell anyone about it. Talk about an amazing and thoughtful gift! How I wish she lived closer so I could give her a huge hug!! And of course I just had to use it for this challenge:
Oh how I love this stamp set, could look at these cards all day..... And as you can see I loved the design so much, I ended up by making two of them!
This was super simple to make. I started off by stamping the Floral Heart using Memento Ink on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS. I then coloured them in using my Altenew Artist Markers and die cut using the matching Floral Heart Dies.
To put them together I used double-sided tape to stick them together and then added foam tape to the back to put on the card front. I kept the sentiment (from Say Yes to Donuts) simple by stamping it in black on a strip of white CS and put on foam tape as well. And I definitely had to add some co-ordinating Neat and Tangled sequins too!!
I have four challenges I would like to enter:
Curtain Call Challenge
Uniko Challenge # 42
Stamplorations CAS Challenge
Southern Girls Challenge #165 (Flower Power)
