New Stash

Here's a card using a stamp I bought when we went to Sir Stampalot last weekend. It's one of this year's new ones by Hero Arts. I've had the Basic Grey "Stella Ruby" paper (now discontinued, unfortunately) for some time and had been looking for a suitable stamp to go with it. This one was perfect. The card is for my sister-in-law. I wanted the image to be the focal point, but also wanted the background paper to show as much as possible, so I've kept it quite simple; watercolour pencil on the dresses, Martha Stewart punch down the side, a few buttons from my button box, a bit of ribbon (also from Sir S), but I think she'll like it.

That stamp has top be one of my favourites lately - although i don;t have it lol! - but always love cards made with it -maybe because i used to sew a lot of my, own clothes as a tenager! Teenagers today would just laugh at the idea lol

Don't those papers work brilliantly with that stamp, Lynne, they could have been made for it. You've captured a real feel of days long gone when we all wore hand made clothes!! Your SIL will love it.
Have a great weekend.

A lovely card Lynne - reminds me of all those sewing patterns I used to collect before I started cardmaking LOL!!!

The pefect backing paper to go with the image and your buttons finish it of perfectly.

Wishing it was this time last week .. .. how about you?

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

I'm sure your SIL loved this. I know I would and you are so right about those papers. They are absolutely perfect to go with the image.

Didn't know you bought this one Lynne.

Chris has it yet I looked at it and wondered what on earth I would do with it. Anyhow I did stamp up an image to take home and actually quite liked what I made - can't share for a week or two.
