Happy Saturday! Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features shades of blue.
I pulled out the Stamparatus again to play with a repetitive stamp design –
I have started pulling the Stamparatus out a lot lately! It saves on wasting nice card stock, most of the time!
I placed the HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiment on the plate towards the top of the clear plate. (To test the stamping of the image, I used scrap paper.) I inked it up, stamped it. Took the off, moved it down and repeated this as far down as I could.
To add the cursive sentiment, I placed it between two stamped HAPPY BIRTHDAY’s. I closed the plate to pick it up. I added a thin piece of copy paper that I could see through. I stamped the cursive sentiment. You might have to do this a few times, but when it looks correct, remove the thin paper and stamp onto the test paper.
It looked really good so I added the Whisper White card stock and stamped the images as I tested them. This sounds like a long process, but it’s really not.
I’ve noticed the more you use the Stamparatus, the more easy to use it becomes.
I looked at the Perennial Birthday stamp set to see what flowers I could add to my card. Conveniently, the flower in the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper are pretty much the same! I used the DSP and Blends to color it. Win!
I added an even strip to the side and that was it!
I really like the way this turned out. I can’t wait to mail it out!
Go forward to check out Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown. I know they’ll have some great
