I've just got back from my crafty pal Jade's house, we had a lovely eating, scoffing pizza and eton mess, making a few new cards from the new mini catty and we helped Jade's friends Tori and Macca make 60 wedding invites - so all in all a very productive craftfest!!
Tonight i had a chance to play with the brilliant 'A la Carte; stamp 'Packed For Birthday'. If you don't own that many crafty bits and are looking for one versatile birthday stamp to get you started this may be the stamp for you...
It's one stamp that can be used as a whole or you can use all the different componants! And for just £8.95 i think it is complete value for money!!
So tonight i have a card that uses this stamp as a whole:
On an 'Elegant Eggplant' base i layered a piece of 'Old Oliver' which i ran through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder'. Next i stamped the sentiment - from the 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' (using 'Elegant Eggplant' ink onto some 'Whisper White' card and punched it out using the 'Decorative Label Punch' and then layered a strip of 'Elengant Eggplant card.
On a piece of 'Whisper White' i stamped the 'Packed For Birthday' stamp in 'Basic Black' ink, coloured it in using a range of 'Stampin' Write Markers' and mounted it onto a piece of 'Old Olive Card. Before gluing it onto the 'Elegant Eggplant' card i punched out two 'Old Olive' 'Decorative Labels', punching a whole in each using the 'Crop-a-dile' and then placing a 'Rich Razzleberry' 'Brad' and placed them underneath.
