My kinda maths....


Happy Friday! Happy half-term (for me anyway!) :)

Today is my spot as a guest designer over at the Sweet Stamp Shop. I'm sharing a few extra projects made with the new stamps from May's release.

Now Maths was never my strong point, but today's card is the kinda maths I likey! Admitedly my guy hasn't got a mustache though...I wonder if I should persuade him to grow one so I can give this card to him?!

tips and tricks
  • Add little details to small images to give them more 'oomph'! I added glossy accents to the lips, white lines to the mustache and a mini-gem to the heart. 
  • I used an impression plate on my card base to add more texture (it's hard to see in the pic), but I always stamp my sentiments before impresing my pattern so I have an even texture to stamp on.  
Next up is a fun (well, it's fun to me!) interactive card. I do love to make them when I've got the time, and it's even better when it's a super easy one to make.
you're perfect

Simply lift up the lever to reveal the message this card conveys in two simple words:

You're Perfect 2

Hee! So simple! Just thread a brad through a strip of cardstock (I folded mine over so it would hide the brad) to create a lever and have a little message/image waiting behind the object your moving.

tips and tricks

  • I was originaly going to stamp the eye chart in a grey ink, but it was too dark and took the focus (pun not intended there, but I'll take it anyway - ha!) from the 20/20 sentiment. So cue some clear embossing - works like a charm for subtle elements.
  • Stamp anything you want to sit on your embossed elements in black/coloured ink first and let that ink dry before embossing larger elements on top with clear ink and powder.
That's all from me today, but before I scoot I just wanted to give you a heads up that the Sweet Stamp Shop is having a DT Call. Take a peek and get that sweet application in! Oh, and one more thing: A big thanks to Nicole for having me as a Guest Designer this month. Thanks, Nicole I had a super sweet time! :D

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekeend!
