For A Friend's Birthday
All the stamps I've used here are in a set of clear stamps that were free with the Creative Stamper magazine. I stamped everything using black Memento ink onto snippets of white card. I also used some quite tiny snippets of patterned papers to paper piece the sunshade and the girls dresses, and then used Promarkers for the rest of the colouring. I cut the image with a Spellbinders Marrvelous Squares die and matted it onto another snippet of blue card cut with the larger die from the same set. The backing paper is from a LOTV pad and cut to fit the front of a 6" square base card. After sticking the picture in place I hand cut the stamped banner and fixed it with thin foam pads. I wrapped some blue seam binding around the folded edge of the card and tied a bow. The flowers are cut with a memory box die from some more matching snippets with yellow gems stuck in the centres, and the leaves I found already cut in a box of odd die cuts, I think it is probably a Joy Craft die.
I am sure that you have guessed that I will be taking this over to the Snippets Playground and see what all the other playmates have been making.
I have two new followers to say Hi to this week, so welcome to Hettie and Jaycee, thank you both for following.
Thank you as well to every one who spares the time to take a look at my work and for your comments which are greatly appreciated.
