Stampin’ Up Saturday ~ Everything Eleanor #2

Last week’s cards were both very floral. This time I wanted to show a different style of card, using a stamp from the same set.


I stamped the round frame onto the green card, before embossing it with the Lacy Brocade folder. I then used the same stamp to make a border along the top and bottom of my base card. The Stamp-a-ma-jig came in very handy for lining it up.


The green panel was added on top and finished with a butterfly, embellished with pearls, and a sentiment on a banner strip. I realised, after photographing, that the stamping of the sentiment had left a shadow. Completely intentional of course!


Other than the stem for the flowers, these are the rest of the stamps that I didn’t show last week. The cardstock colours I’ve used here are Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz which, I’m very happy to say, are making a return in the next catalogue. I’m not really a pink person but I do love that shade, it’s perfect.

If you have a favourite colour of inkpad, that you can’t live without, make sure you order a re-inker for it, while stocks last. If you’d like any more information, on anything I’ve mentioned, please contact me angelfishcrafts{at}gmail{dot}com

I’ll be back tomorrow for Storytelling Sunday: Pick Your Precious. Are you joining in this month? First timers, occasional participants and seasoned regulars, Sian welcomes anyone with a tale to tell. Maybe I’ll see you there.

I'm really tempted by the stamp jig thingy.

Fi, your cards really are elegant

A tool for lining things up and making it easy sounds like a great idea - your card is very prettily done.

I love the little touch of embossing on the butterfly - makes it look a bit different without having to buy something new.
