Good day all you lovely people! Finally back to posting normally while I think about my next cataloguing session and how I am going to go about it!
Today I received some new goodies in the post, so I just had to make a card with them. Something I'm usually remiss about (which is what got me in such a mess in the first place!)
One of the things I got was a Sizzix die set that I got for around £3 in a sale and the other was my Happy Little Stampers stamp set 'Birthday Friends'
I wasn't quite so keen on the Sizzix die, however there were three in the set and I liked one of them, but I did think that this one would be good for paper piecing. So I had a rummage through my scraps and found a watercolour scrap I had made while testing out some watercolour markers that was ideal for the cupcake wrapper, a piece of pink, textured card that I made in the past by sticking scrunched up tissue paper on to card-stock and a scrap of red SU card-stock.
The sentiment was from the Happy Little Stampers stamp set 'Birthday Friends' set and I stamped it on to another scrap of black card-stock and heat embossed it in white - I just love the font in this set!
Then I used another item that arrived (aren't I good?) a Lil' Inker 'Dotted Scallops' cover plate as I thought it matched the scallops on the cupcake die and used this on the base card. Then I mounted the piece on to the front.
Here is the completed card.
As you can see, I dressed it with some black dots to tie in with the sentiment strip and some WOS and Glossy Accents on the cherry.
Thank you for your visit today, I appreciate you all and will visit you where possible! Have a lovely day! Hazel xx
