Hope everyone has had a good weekend. I'm back this morning with my design team inspiration for the Simply Sassy site HERE. I have a sneak peek of one of the soon to be released Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Stamps, woo hoooo. My mojo went walkabouts this weekend, so wasn't terribly pleased when trying to do my card but it returned as soon as match of the day came on. Bet that's never been said before, lol. Anyway I was crafting pretty late making a fancy envelope to go with the card, which my Teamie Vicky had produced recently so thought I had best give it a go. Hope you like it and if you fancy giving it a go the link to the tutorial is HERE. I'll apologise now for the amount of photo's, I got carried away.
I inked all the edges with Aged Mahogony Distress ink. As you can see it's tied to the side with ribbon.
You can nearly see her........
Almost there, just showing you the envelope opening...........
Yayyyyyy, here she is. I have merged her with a digi background, Daffodil's Dell availble HERE at Make It Crafty. Zoe has the most fabulous backgrounds that you can use with all your stamps. I printed out the digi image and using my mag-a-jig from stamping up I worked out where I should position my simply sassy stamp. I then took my cardstock and stamped my image in position. I then stamped the image again using staz on onto some masking film and cut her out. I placed the masking film over my image and fed it through the printer. I peeled off my mask and voila. I was pleased with the outcome and the bird is almost positioned on top of the daffodil.
I added some birds and some clouds using a scalloped circle and my chalks. I have also added some flower soft to the taller flowers giving them a bit of texture.
So as not to confuse you, the stamp consists of the simply sassy girl and the little bird, i just wanted to show you that you can create fabulous scenes using your stamps.
And there's the envelope together with the card.
