I received some happy mail yesterday! I ordered some stamp sets and coordinating dies which were released on the previous CHA by Avery Elle. With the set 'Special Delivery' I created two cards.
Love that stork!
Have you seen this tutorial by Jennifer McGuire about stamping solid clear stamps? I used it for these cards and it worked quite well! It gives a nice and even image of the banner stamp. The banner on the first is stamped with aqua mist from Papertrey Ink. Unfortunately, I can't get the colour right on this picture.
Last week a couple from our church got married. I attended the church service and saw a beautiful wreath with flowers on the front page of the order of service. It was also on their wedding card. That was the inspiration for the card! I stamped the bible text which the sermon was about on a card with the SU alphabet roller stamp, stamped flowers and branches with PTI's Twig Wreath and adhered this front panel onto one of the plaid designs from Lawn Fawn.
I also needed a card for a 25th wedding anniversary. Same idea with a different text.
And as the Twig Wreath set was still on my desk I also stamped a very quick congrats card with a Els Brigé stamp.
It has been a long time ago that I created a card without any stamping at all. However, with Crate Paper's new baby line there is no need to stamp. In the paper pad are some small journaling cards which can be used in stead of sentiment stamps. These papers are from the 'boys' line. The background with dots is from Simple Stories.
I made this card for Judith. She has recently celebrated her birthday, but I couldn't make it in time to send her a card. So, I created a card with a more neutral sentiment, which I think she will appreciate. Hopefully she has received the card by now! All used materials are from Papertrey Ink.
