Double Z Pop Up Card

Today I would like to share this card that I really enjoyed making for my Daughter.

 Items Used:

Avery Elle - Clear Stamp Set 4"x 6"
Avery Elle Dies - Petals and Stems
Sue Wilson Dies - Arched window / Door
The Sentiment was perfect size but the circle was a little big for this card so I trimmed it.
Impression Obsession - Butterfly Set
Impression Obsession - Cat Set
Impression Obsession - Fence Border Die

I varied the measurements on mine to suit what I wanted to do.

Do you have trouble stamping a good impression?
The Misti is a marvellous tool to help with that.
However not everyone likes to pay the price.
I have an alternative.....

If you have access to an IKEA store they have a wonderful
photo frame that will do nicely.

The frame has hinges and a soft clear front that does the job perfectly and only cost $7 in Australia.
All you have to do is remove the protective plastic and tape the clear front down that
it doesn't move about.  Just use washi tape to hold your card stock in place while you stamp
and that will work perfectly.  I modified mine a little more and placed a sheet of perspex down
so I can use either washi tape or sticky tape.  I love it and you can stamp over and over again until
you have the desired affect.

Or you can go to more trouble and follow these instructions

I do hope I have helped to improve your stamping.

Love to Fish

Hello Fellow crafters.  Have a great week.

The weather in Brisbane is beautiful with a lovely cool breeze.
A bit different to a couple of weeks ago.

Items Used:

Boys will be Boys - Digital Image - Cody Fishing
Impression Obsession - Sea Birds
Impression Obsession - Nautical mini set (Dolphin)
Cheery Lyn Fishing Boat set (Logs)
Pencils, Inks and Copic Pens

About the centre cut out:
Because I didn't have a die the right size for the centre of the frame cut out I used a Spellbinders
rectangle die that was smaller than the cut out.  I pencilled the size of the picture and placed the die with the outside on the line and had to replace the die four times to get the right size.
I just cut out some corner pieces for the photo album affect.

Have a great week all our Crafty Talents and don't forget to put
your entry in for our February Challenge.
Who can believe it's February already.

Crafty Hugs, Carol x
