Heartfelt Make and Takes
So like any wisened stampers... we checked out what materials we needed and brought them home, to complete in our own casual crafting time. Only once I'd put my stampset together, I just couldn't resist trying out some ink on my newly acquired rubber.
I started with the simple stamping of the white cards in Pool party, More Mustard, Calypso Coral and Gumball green. And you stamp the envelope to match as well, very cool!
Lastly I made up the vellum envelope. Out of a single square of vellum, scored on the diagonals and wrapped with a piece of Baker's twine.
How gorgeous is that?
But I was pleasantly pleased with the colours and textures that emerged from this group of papers, ink and cardstock. Basic grey is an excellent background colour to enhance the colours and tesxtures of cardstock flags.
They seem to just float on the page, yet are held securely with mini glue dots.
