Can you keep a secret??? I have been a little bad. I have be going slowly NUTS with this darn neck thing. I have sketched soooooooo many cards that you will be over-run with posts once I get the all clear and get them made!!! I have read Stamping and Crafting Mags, (finally) sorted all my SU stuff into the new colour groups, gone through my stamps and decided which ones I wanna part with and repackaged my punches. On the upside I am all organised and ready to go when the green light flashes!!
But...I was bad....I HAD TO STAMP!!! I kept things relatively CAS (clean and simple) so as to not be in a bad position for too long. I also made a CASE of a card I saw on SCS here. Apparently in the US they have a digital studio thing that means that you can print elements of a set out as you wish. At least I think that's the idea. Anyhow, I made 2 versions with just a minor tweak of the embellishments.
As you can see one one card I have the 1/2 pearls midway & on the other at the bottom. I have also moved the position of the bow according to balance. I am very happy with the results. It is also my first use of Elements of Style. This set is gunna be a long time fave I think. The hummingbird is stamped onto the card and then onto a wide oval punch and then positioned over the original on dimensionals. It was easy to line up with a SAMJ....to get perfect lines!! I thought the "Happy" from "Life Definitions is a nice sentiment on a birthday card.
I hope you like these cards as much as I do. I have another round of CAS cards to share later. thanks for dropping by.
