It’s Your Day

November 2, 2018

I had a little fun yesterday afternoon playing with the Stamparatus and the Happiness Surrounds stamp set.  The more I play with this stamp set the more combinations of images I come up with.  I started by seeing if the small flower would fit inside the leaf medallion image and guess what it does.  So using the Stamparatus I stamped several images using Merry Merlot for the flower and Mossy Meadow for the leaves.  I used the co-ordinating Snowfall Thinlites Die to cut them out.  Then once more setting up the Stamparatus I stamped the large medallion image onto Whisper White card using Merry Merlot ink.  I was able to stamp a few onto one strip of card, using the hinged stamping technique.  The large medallions were cut out using one of the Layering Circle Dies.  I also cut out a scalloped circle from Mossy Meadow card using the same dies.  I attached the small flower/leaf medallion to the centre of the large medallion using mini dimensionals and then added the scalloped circle to the back.  These pieces turned out so pretty I wanted to turn them into cards.  So I embossed Whisper White card using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder (remember you need to spritz the card with water before using a dynamic embossing folder).  I attached some of the embossed card pieces to scored and folded Merry Merlot card and some to scored and folded Mossy Meadow card.  The card needed something else so I cut a piece of 5/8″ Striped Burlap Ribbon and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.  Once more setting up my Stamparatus and using the hinged technique I stamped “it’s your day” from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set multiple times onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  The greetings are cut out using the smallest of the ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I attached the greetings to Merry Merlot card cut using one of the scalloped ovals from the same dies.  The greeting is attached to the card front over the ribbon.  These cards turned out so pretty, don’t you think?

Now what to do for the inside?  Once more I set  up the Stamparatus so that I could stamp the flower/leaf combination onto Whisper White card using Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow ink.

I’m attending Onstage Local (a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator only event) in Brisbane in a week or so and maybe I will use these as swaps.  I haven’t swapped in years, but it might be fun to do so once more.

Bye for now,
