Hello! Welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This is a milestone week as What Will You Stamp? has reached 100 Challenges! Wahoo!! This week we’re using Number of Years Stamp Set. I made a special 6″ x 6″ congratulations card for today using the floral spray from this set. I also used a few other stamp sets to complete the project.
This card was inspired by Jennifer Maguire; she made some similar cards using a bunch of smaller images to make a background pattern of sorts but she coloured hers. I decided to go with full on gold! The Hooray sentiment comes from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set, and I’ve also used some of the little floral and leaf images from the Love & Affection Stamp Set. After heat embossing the sentiment in the centre, I arranged the small images in the MISTI and stamped in Versamark then heat embossed. Turning the card a quarter turn each time I repeated this 3 times. The MISTI is a great tool for this kind of technique, and I don’t think I would have attempted this card without it.
For the inside of the card I used this GORGEOUS sentiment from the new Birthday Blast Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I just adore this font and I think it looks fabulous in gold! I layered Whisper White on Gold Foil. I also added some matching washi tape from the Pop of Pink pack to the bottom of the panel for that extra somethin’ somethin’.
Tip: When layering, especially with more expensive specialty cardstocks like foil sheets, cut the panel to size and then cut all the way around about 1 cm in from the edges, so you’re left with a frame. This saves wasting your cardstock.
To finish off this project, I made an envelope and embellished with more of that washi tape on the flap.
