Hand Stamped Sentiments #144

Ok, so it's been two full months a while since I last posted.  Life gets in the way sometimes, non?  (Say that line in a French accent - much more effective.)  My darling friend Sandra was so kind as to bring this to my attention this week whilst crafting, so I decided I better get on it.  Plus, I have a week off work so I think I'll try and cram a ton of blogging in to shut her up make her happy.

Anywho, over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week they've got a challenge for snowflakes.  I recently got this set (Snowflake Soiree) and decided it was time to play. 

This summer I went on a bit of a bender collage stamping and used that technique here as well.  In the background you can see En Francais (best stamp ever).  I stamped it in Bashful Blue and then off once so you can just barely see it.  Then along the bottom I stamped the image from the Snowflake Party wheel (I hate wheel stamps, but once you pull them off the wheel and add some cling mount foam, voila!  Magic!)

Though the collage factor of this card takes a little time, the lack of a bunch of layers makes it pretty quick to assemble, and since the sentiment is the only additional layer, it can be mailed with a plain old regular stamp.  No surprises at the post office.

That's that!  Back to stamping and blogging like crazy to appease my crazy friend. :)  Love ya CFAL!

  6. AHA! I'm not the only one who pulls the rubber off the wheel!! I think this card is really beautiful, I love the background stamping-something I forget until I see it. So happy you got back into the blogging world with HSS. :)
