Well it’s almost the weekend and I have a couple of cards for you today focusing on the Postage Stamp punch. I have to say I’m looking forward to the weekend as we are hoping to get paint on the walls and ceiling in the new lounge which will then mean we can start moving furniture about, that means my craft room designing time is getting closer! I say we hope to get paint on the walls and ceiling because first we have to agree on the wall colour……and then I am rather messy when I paint so most of it ends up on me rather than on the walls!
This first card uses the Fresh Vintage Sale-a-bration stamp set, I have coloured the stamp using the in-colour markers, it’s a really quick card to make and since both the ruffled ribbon and the Designer series paper pack is all in the same colours it all sits together really well. I love the Postage Stamp punch as it gives dimension to the card.
This second card is not a new idea at all, if fact I remember making paper pinwheels at Brownies, believe me that was a long time ago ! When I was a brownie we had little brown dresses and wooly hats with pompoms on the top!
Back to the card…… this again uses the Postage Stamp punch and the in-colour designer series paper pack and the absolutely gorgeous printed brads. Now I do suggest if you are going to make these pinwheels you do start out with a 4″ or 6″ square to have a practice on before you use the tiny square that you get from the Postage Stamp Punch. a little dot of glue does help secure the triangles. All you do to make them is cut from each corner diagonally towards the centre, making sure you don’t cut all the way through. I have used cocktail sticks as handles and finished off with the Outlined occasions stamp set another free Sale-a-bration set you can get with a £45 order.
I hope you have a great weekend what ever you are doing, I will be back over the weekend with some school days scrapbook pages.
