CAS 4 - Day 2 - DIY Stamp

I managed to get one more card done for Day 2 of the CAS 4 course and this time, it was DIY stamps, by Shari Caroll.

First I cut my Memory Box, 'Chloe Stem' die out of white fun foam and mounted it on to my acrylic block with temporary adhesive . . . which on fun foam, wasn't as nearly temporary as when it is on smooth cardstock!  Then I coated it with Memento, 'Rich Cocoa' and stamped it on a panel of, Stampin' Up, 'Natural' cardstock.

Next, I took the 'stamp' off the block and adhered it to my card layer and then stamped my greeting from the Simon Says Stamp, 'Friendship Sayings' and layered it on to a strip of chocolate brown cardstock and a panel of patterned paper.

Finally, I mounted the finished panel on to a natural card base and added a few homemade sequins and glitter 'gems' (glitter glue).

By now, I had nearly lost all light, so I only have the full cards, no detail shots, as the pictures were very poor.

Thanks as usual, for popping by and for any comments, I really appreciate it!  have a great day/evening.  Hazel xx
