Simply Swearin'

Here is a card I knocked up last night for this week's Simply Stampin' challenge. It took me several attempts to get the sentiment in the correct place due to laziness, (I could not be arsed to get my stamp positioner out) so there were quite a few expletives flying around the place. Eventually I saw sense and dug out the required equipment!


I followed this week's sketch and used SU stamps as required, the flower is from one of last year's Sale-a-bration sets I think. I embossed some white card with a cuttlebug embossing folder and cut the top piece away. Then I punched a scalloped border along the bottom with a MS punch and stuck individually stamped and cut out flowers on the top edge (these have glittered centres but of course it never shows in photo's) . Next I stamped the sentiment (several times!!!!) on another piece of card and stuck this underneath with sticky fixers. The ribbon was coloured with the same ink pad I used for stamping. Et voila.

On to todays topic for March Photo-A-Day - KEY


and here is me wearing said key.






This photo was my first using the tripod, ...it may be my last!
Thanks for looking,

Too roo. x

  3. Just beautiful Fiona. So delicate and pretty. Love the embossing folder and those stamped flowers.
    You sound like me!! I do that where I stuggle and think I don't need that tool to do it, but you always do don't you? Your sentiment ended up being perfect anyway. Have a good night. Debbiexx

  7. I love this flower stamp Fiona and it looks amazing stamped and cut out and arranged in a chain like this. Tell me, how did you have the patience to do that but not to get your stamp-a-majig for the sentiment?! I love your key pendant too. Vicky x

  11. Really beautiful card Fiona - love the crisp blue and white and how you combined a row of flowers with that embossing folder! I've learned the hard way that I absolutely, positively, HAVE TO get my Stamp-a-ma-jig out to avoid wonky sentiments and bad language!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at Simply Stampin' this week and I really hope you join us again soon!
