We used Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive inks to stamp the beautiful flowers and foliage from the Vintage Vogue (SU!) stamp set. We ran the white section through a cuttlebug with a polka dot embossing folder, added the striped dsp and then made the topper, as you can see, with the pretty white flower in the centre of the biggest stamped image. I made mine slightly lower down than it should have been, so didn't add the sentiment provided, as it was a bit too big, so I added the 'Just For You' when I got home, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for accuracy, which meant I didn't have to worry that I might get it in the wrong place.
I've had a very strange crafting week, where everything I pick up I seem to drop, spill, trip over or break! Do you ever have a week like that? Such a relief to go to craft group and have it all there ready for me. I've realised that some of my frustration is down to a blunt blade in my paper cutter and a very peculiar new blade in my craft knife that puts it at the wrong angle to cut with. I'll be going out tomorrow to buy new ones of both, as I can't stand it any longer!
Have a great weekend, everyone, I hope you get some 'me' time in the busy rush of life!
