Just Stampin!


Happy Friday all. It's all go here today, H is after a lift to the golf club but appears to have gone back to bed :-) Ol's keeps bringing me last minute washing to get cleaned before he heads off on his hols tomorrow and is in need of a lift to work at and I'm sitting here smiling.  It's the last day of the summer hols before H starts college on Monday and with Oli away too quiet days with no interuptions are just around the corner lol!.  

Today's card is the last of this months design team projects for Darren at Jones Crafts.  I've really enjoyed working with a different collection, it's challenged the old brain cells and got me thinking outside the box.   I used the Mistletoe Stamp Set by Kaisercarft, and red, green and black ink. The wreath background was stamped onto a separate piece of card cut out and adhered to the card before the fussy cut elements were added.  A great way to add some depth and dimension.  I added a recessed piece of card behind the wreath for the sentiment baubles and last little berry sprig. A really simple card but really effective I thought lol! 



I love the sentiments in this stamp set

  6. Good evening Clare, You probably didn't see my last message on your previous post so apologies for not being around for your last few projects. We had family to stay and I couldn't get near the computer during that time. I'm loving this latest card everything about it is so fresh. Do hope you enjoy the show in Leigh on Sunday and that the weather stays fine. Thanks for sharing this and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care.
