The Final Countdown!

Hi everyone! It’s the final countdown

The stamps and dies will be available in the store and also at Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson tonight at 10pm (BST)…
and just in case you weren’t sure which sets to choose, I thought I’d leave you with one final project from the ‘Let’s Party’ (mini A7 set)
It might be a smaller set, but it has everything you need to make the cutest invites or Birthday cards, or something with a little dimension like this!..

Those of you who are regulars at this blog will know I have a ‘thing’ for creating ‘off the card’ cards (if that makes any sense).

I created a folded card using a die (leaving the top fold pushed down towards the centre of the die slightly which meant it doesn’t cut the fold and so creates a mini blank.

I stamped all of the balloons and cut them out. There is a word of warning here… not all inks are created equal. Just saying. Some are perfectly marvellous for small areas or sentiments, but give them a little expanse of solid image and they get blotchy.

If you ever get this, ink it first with Versamark ink and then ink with your chosen colour. It won’t make a perfect image, but a much more even inking than before!

You can hopefully see where some of the acetate ‘strings’ are. I stacked them onto the base using strips of double sided tape to keep them secure and then added another die cut shaped over the top to hide the ‘workings’.

Add the lovely scripty font and you’ve a fun invite for any age!

See you soon!
