Hello everyone, time to share a card creation. Have a look:
Way back last year, our American cousins got hold of this beautiful dsp, Spice Cake, and I have to admit to having crafting envy! I was so thrilled when we finally got it. But the American girls had also found amazing ways to combine it with the Gently Falling stamp set, so imagine how pleased I was when it turned up in our catalogue this year.
This is just the sort of card I had in mind. Having never come across 2-stage stamp sets until I met SU!, I think they are something that will fascinate me for ever. I stamped the outline of the leaf in Soft Suede and then the inner leaf with Pool Party, taken, of course, from the colours in the dsp. What a combination that turned out to be! I haven't looked at this card for a while and I still love it!
I am also pleased to say that my card swap group is up and running and would like to say a big thankyou to all those taking part. The idea is that we make a card once a month and send it to another member of the group, while also receiving one from another member. I'm going to show you all the cards I give and receive on here, so pop back soon for my first one.
I'm also trying to make a card for every member of staff at work this year as well as all the residents, so suddenly I am inundated with card making needs! But do you see me complaining?? No!
