Business as usual...

Sorry about that "blip" on Monday. Hopefully near-normal service has now been resumed!

This – or a variation of this – is the Make & Take for my Sale-A-Bration workshops this month and last. It uses the very lovely Happy Moments stamp set, which you can earn free if you place an order of £45 or more before the end of February.

The image is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured using Watercolour Wonder™ crayons. It’s the Taken with Teal frame which is popped up in this case – which leaves room for the ribbon to go behind it. The card on the left is very simple but can be stepped up if you have more time - like I have done for the card on the right.

This time I actually stamped the Polka Dot background stamp on the Taken with Teal piece – unfortunately I picked up the wrong ink pad (Tempting Turquoise) and the spots have disappeared! I've rounded the corners, tied a standard knot in the ribbon, added a Word Window and a Filigree brad. All fun elements but a bit too time-consuming for a workshop situation.

Stamps: Happy Moments
Cardstock: Rose Red, Taken with Teal, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Basic Grey
Accessories: Striped Grosgrain Ribbon – So Saffron, Eyelet Border punch, 1 ¾” circle punch, Watercolour Wonder™ crayons – Rich Regals.

Stepped-up version: As above, plus Word Window Punch, Filigree Brads, Polka Dot background stamp (!)

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
