Happy Easter to all my readers and Happy Birthday Dad!
You may have seen my earlier stampingscene post when I shared with you my Stampin' Up! Undefined Carved Robin Stamp on a Christmas card, well I was too excited about it not to share it again and what better card could it adorn than one for my dear Dad's birthday!
I'm finding lots of uses for my Hardwood background stamp and not only is it great for this card, but it is perfect for those elusive male cards generally.
My Dad and I love the spring and so I just had to add some beautiful daffodils which I made using my Petite Petals punch and one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack. The white Narcissi are in bloom now too so I've added a couple of them too using whisper white and cajun craze card stock. All you need to do is punch the petals and then the centre is punched and then gently tweaked using your stylus from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool or one you bought separately. Put the punched shaped on your piercing pad and gently push the larger end of the stylus into the centre and to raise the edges of the centre piece and then work around the centre point to bring them all inward. I've also used matching markers to just highlight the edges of the centres just like the real Narcissi.
My new fringe scissors from the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue help you make lovely green grass!
Remember when you can't find that perfect stamp for that special project you can turn to Stampin' Up! Undefined Stamp Carving Kit to make it for yourself to create that personal, exclusive project!
