Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Birthday Flowers.
I started out thinking I was going to make one card, hmm somehow one became six. I had decided to pick one colour and add Very Vanilla and see where I went from there, the first ink that I put my hand on was Lost Lagoon so I went with that.
I really love the effect when you stamp all over your card with the matching ink, so I chose one of the flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set to do this with. I then stamped the same flower once on the Very Vanilla and added sentiments from the Cottage Greetings stamp set again in Lost Lagoon.
As I looked at the result I thought how easy it would be to repeat the same process in different colours and before I knew it I had made six. I love how quick and easy these are to make, all I added was a couple of punched out flowers, and some embellishments and I was done.
I love the simplicity of them and yet I also feel they make quite a statement. In fact I decided I needed to make them into sets so have started to make some tealight holders to match, which I will finish tomorrow and share with you all.
How many of you are as bad as me for getting lost in crafting, and quick cards end up being hours of crafting fun. Please let me know your stories by leaving me a comment, surely I cant be the only one! 🙂
