Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

Live your dream

Just a quick picture of a card which was put together very quickly. Inspired by SU Monica using this particular stamp for one of her techniques in the Stamp With Us Summer online classes (a must for you all - they are fab!). Plus, I had a new Martha Stewart punch which I had tried out on a scrap of SU Regal Rose cardstock.
And not wanting to waste it, I made this card.
A little tip I thought of whilst making it, was the greeting I had stamped on Whisper White and punched with the SU Oval punch, needed to be mounted on a larger oval - which I don't have! So to get the effect of such, I punched another oval (same size) in Regal Rose, cut it in half, and then stuck it behind the WW leaving a gap on the reverse, but giving the impression of using a larger oval punch. Try it and see if it works for you.
Thanks for looking.

Very pretty - did you use the dryer sheet technique? x

No Steph but that inspired me to use that particular stamp. Got the sheets but need to use them first in the tumble dryer and it's not the weather for tumbling yet. Perhaps I'll just tumble some dry towels for the sake of it!
