You're Special

The idea for todays card came from yesterdays Clean & Simple Online Card class.  So last night I was playing around and made a small card for my niece using the Hero Arts "Flower Wall Paper" cling stamp.  I like the fun idea of stamping the stamp on a strip of paper, and then stamping again and cutting out some elements to then adhere over the strip.  Ok, I know, that sounds confusing, so here is my little card:

Paper: Neenah Solar White; Hero Arts Layering paper; PTI cardstock
Ink:Versafine Onyx Black; Prismacolour pencils; HA Soft Yellow Shadow ink
Stamps: Hero Arts; Paper Smooches
Other: Dimensional foam

I just cut a banner out of the yellow cardstock and stamped the background onto it with the yellow shadow ink, it's very subtle, but it's there.  I then stamped the background again with black ink on Neenah cardstock and coloured in a few random flowers and fussy cut them out.  Finally, I adhered them with some dimensional foam for dimension.

The sentiment is from Paper Smooches' "Sentiment Sampler".

I can't believe that the online class is done!  Today was the last class.  I still have so many techniques and ideas to play with, perhaps I'll get some time this weekend!

I hope you have a great weekend planned ahead!  Take care!

Really cute card, Brenda! Your niece will love getting this. I, too, need to take the time to sit down and make cards using the class ideas. However, I have another project that must be mailed out the first of next week, so it will have to wait.

Enjoy your weekend!
