Err, I only used one bright blossom - but that's the name of a lovely Stampin' Up set I recently bought, new, from eBay:
- 5" x 7" white card stock
- SU 'Certainly Celery' patterned paper (bought in a small pack of 6 x 6" square sheets from eBay - someone is obviously being wise and chopping up 12" square sheets to sell before Certainly Celery disappears altogether, and why not indeed?)
- SU 'Daffodil Delight' card stock, embossed using SU's 'Square Lattice' folder
- a little strip of orange gingham ribbon
- image stamped using SU's 'Bright Blossoms' stamp set, 'Certainly Celery' and 'Daffodil Delight' ink spots, and an orange Whispers pen
- the image was die cut using a Nesties 'Floral Oval' die, plus a piece of greaseproof paper which made removing it from the die a doddle
- sentiment stamped using 'Certainly Celery' and a stamp from a Stampendous sentiments set called 'Happy Messages'
- sentiment was punched out using SU's 'Word Window' punch then layered onto a snippet of orange card, punched using SU's 'Modern Label' punch
A cheerful card made on a dull day here yesterday. Come on sunshine, where are you?
Today's tip - a really obvious one perhaps. I popped the image onto the card using very thin sticky pads - the embossed portion of the card stands more proud (needless to say) so to make sure the image was level I just popped a double layer onto the top portion. I buy really cheapo 1" x 0.5" sticky pads (mostly from Wilkinsons), they're nice and thin and can be snipped down to suit.
I think there could be a recipe posted here tomorrow - it's been ages!
