Welcome to Stampaholix and the In Love with Stamping Forum Sale-a-Bration Blog hop!
Today this blog is linked to 14 other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators' blogs and the aim of the game is to show you some of the lovely cards and gifts you can make with one of the four free stamp sets available to you for another month or so.
I had a hard time deciding which set I was going to showcase today, but in the end, the Happy Moments set (#118664) was the one that inspired me most and this was my creation.
Its a tiny 4" square black cardstock pizza box filled with 6 3x3 notelets and envelopes. Did I ever tell you that red, black and white is my favourite colour combination of all time? Well if not and you visit me again - you will see that one cropping up again and again!!
This set has SEVEN stamps in it, the birdcage and bunch of flowers you can see above, a pile of pressies and a birthday cake, and 3 greetings (happy birthday, thank you and for you)
The cards are whisper white bases with a basic black and real red topper highlighted with the red gingham ribbon. The images were stamped onto whisper white with basic black and real red classic ink and in the case of the bunch of flowers stems and leaves coloured in with a handsome hunter marker from the rich regal set of Stampin' Write markers. These were then punched out with the small tag punch, and layered on to a a black tag punched with the large tag punch. Finally, they were attached to the base with a twist of gingham ribbon and a crystal brad.
