Fun and Fast Notes - Thanks i needed that!

Hiya everyone, by now i should be in Tanzania! the first week of my trip i will be staying quite literally in the middle of no-where!! In a camp called Ndarakwai, where our view will be of the spectacular Mount Meru! Oh my job is so difficult!!

So before i went i had a major crafting session, so that i could post plenty of projects whilst i was away! I'm going to start by sharing with you how fab the 'Fun and Fast Notes' stampset is!

It consists of eight stamps, here they are:

Now to make them even more versatile i decided to cut my stamps up and mount them on the wooden blocks like this:

The great thing about doing this is that you can use the image and the sentiment independently from one another if you choose to!!

So for the next eight days i will be sharing with you a project/ card using each of these stamps. So here's todays card:

I can't take much credit for this design, as i CASE'd it from the '2010 Ideas Book and Catalogue'. I have started with a 'Real Red' cardbase. Next layer is 'Daffodil Delight'. I have stamped the 'thanks...i needed that' sentiment in 'Early Espresso' onto a strip of 'Whisper White' cardstock and stuck that onto the yellow layer. Next is a rectangle of 'Early Espresso' card. Finally i have stamped the bird image onto a piece of 'Whisper White', coloured him in using my 'Stampin' Write Markers', i stamped out another flower, coloured and cut it out and raised it using a 'Dimensional' to create a 3D effect. Before gluing down the final layer, i used a scrap strip of 'Real Red' edged it with the 'Eyelet Border Punch'.

This is obviously a very versatile layout, you could create any card using this design and a 'Fun and Fast Note' stamp.

Please check back tomorrow for another 'Fun and Fast Note' card!
