This is what you get using just the frame image and a stamp-a-majig! I think it's rather striking stamped in Basic Black on Very Vanilla. I used the stamp-a-majig again to create the sentiment - the word 'just' is from the Hostess set Afterthoughts and 'a note' comes from Thank You Kindly.
Hostess sets are exclusive stamp sets available free to those that hold a stamping party. It really is well worth having a party because as well as being great fun, you get to choose freebies from the catalogue as well as your free stamp set, depending on orders. If you live in the Buckingham area (or somewhere vaguely near!) I'd be delighted to come and help you with a party - just drop me an email and I'll get in touch. If you can't have a party, you might be interested in becoming a 'virtual' hostess by joining my Stampers' 6 club - click here for details.
Here's how to make today's card:
- Take an A5 piece of Very Vanilla card stock and score and fold in half to make a card base.
- Stamp a pattern using the frame image, Basic Black ink and the all-important stamp-a-majig.
- Stamp a sentiment. TIP: Use a Pacific Point marker to colour parts of two or more sentiment stamps and use a stamp-a-majig to position them.
Stamps: Notably Ornate, Afterthoughts (hostess set), Thank You Kindly
Ink: Basic Black
Card stock: Very Vanilla
Other: Pacific Point marker
I dived into a supermarket today to buy some box files (in a vain effort to be more organised!) When I went to pay for them I was a little vexed to be sent off to customer service - apparently there was no bar code on them. But I'm glad I did because, while I was there, I overheard the lady next to me say: "I've just paid for my broccoli and I notice that the cashier has put them through as courgettes... Is that right?" which amused me no end. In the past I've been asked "what are these?" by a bewildered young girl at the cash desk when buying loose garden peas! Children get to grow vegetables and flowers at primary school now but I believe there's a whole generation of people who have no idea what unprepared vegetables look like!
Can you believe that it's Friday tomorrow? I shall have a special project to show you then involving home-baked goodies! Hope to see you then,
