Good Morning Ladies,
Now you can see that great minds think a like here, Pat sent me two cards that she made using the same Heartfelt Creations Festive Candlelight Stamp Set as I used yesterday, Pat stamped some images and took them home with her to finish colouring and make up into cards.
I will say that both of us benefitted greatly by using the "Faux Misti" (Ikea frame ) stamping tool, mainly because the background stamp is like a silhouette stamp in that it has lots of solid area of colour which can be tricky to stamp perfectly first time, they are also red rubber so you cannot see through to restamp perfectly, however once you have positioned your card and stamp on the frame you can restamp as many times as you need to. I would have never made an all stamped card before I invested my £3!
Back to Pat's Cards now, the first card, Pat has stamped the border image and coloured it beautifully in Christmas shades, she has then backed the stamped border with a little green mat, to lift it from the background paper. The paper Pat has used works beautifully with the colours in the stamped image.
The second card was made to exactly the same dimensions as my card yesterday, (piece of cream card cut to 10 inches, scored at 2.5 & 7.5 inches, giving you a 2.5 inch front panel, 5 inch centre panel and lastly another 2.5 inch panel, the depth was 6 inches) Pat stamped her images in Library Green ink, matted her layers with green card and added glitter to all the edges to add that special Christmas sparkle.
Two gorgeous Christmas cards Pat, thank you so much, firstly for buying and sharing the Stamp Set with me and secondly for allowing me to share your Cards with everyone. Xxx
If any of you would like some of the stamped images let me know and Pat or myself will make them up for you.
Paul and I had a fairly successful day shipping yesterday, I did manage to sneak in a visit to the Range, ooh TK Max was a fun experience too!
I am hoping to see Sue today, which I am looking forward to very much xxx
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
