Welcome to another weekend and in England it is our last Bank Holiday Weekend until Christmas:( We have plans for a busy one, going out tonight, to friends for dinner tomorrow and family round for dinner on Sunday, so I hope Bank Holiday Monday will give us some down time and I'll get chance to play.
Sadly the Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps 2 class has finished but I am still playing catch up and this is a card I made for Day 6 of class where the wonderful Laura Bassen showed us how to use outline stamps off the edge so they are cropped on the design. I came up with this card which was a thank you card for the wedding we recently attended.
What I learned:-
Cropping the images gives a very different look to stamps and means that you can use them on smaller projects.
Stacking die cut words gives a really bold effect but is a very sticky business!
Not to be afraid of cutting up sentiments so they will work for a particular card. The 'so much' on the mat was part of a long 'thanks so much' stamp that I cut apart, but I can always stamp them together again next time if I want.
I must put stamps back on the carrier sheet as soon as I have used them or I may have to spend an hour looking for them and then find them stuck to my elbow after I have given it up for lost!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges
Simply Create Too - monochrome madness
Addicted to Stamping and More - CAS
Sister Act Challenge - anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
