Playing catch up...

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I've been 'playing' catch up over the last couple of days experimenting and trying as many of the techniques and ideas that the Stretch Your Stamps 2 online card class have been sharing and inspiring us with over the past 12 days! I'm still behind on some of the days, but when I saw Julie Ebersole's wreath hello card on Day 9, I just had to give it a go...

I used Uniko Studio Natures Treasures I and Background Builders: Vines for this card, along with my Avery Elle inks & the Mama Elephant 'hello' die.

It was a little tricky to cut the inside of the wreath out, but once I'd made a start it didn't take too long! I decided to mount my panel onto a card base with foam adhesive and the 'hello' is secures either end on the reverse of the panel and left hanging free! I'm super pleased with how it turned out and I can see myself making more of this type of card & replacing the die cut with a stamped sentiment.

Ahhhh, weekends how I love thee! Today is going to be spent relaxing & maybe a spot of creating, only 15 days until 'Bean Day', I need to make the most of it!! I'll be back tomorrow with the WINNERS and Top 3 from the Uniko Studio Challenge #12 'Anything Goes'. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

  1. So pretty, Bev ... love how you've used the BB:Vines to create this delicious wreath ... the floating hello looks fabulous inside! Anita :)

  2. Very pretty Bev, worth the effort x

  3. Oh this is divine Beverley and superb inspiration. I can see lots of Christmas cards with this style. Lovely.

  4. Seriously...your fussy cutting amazes in the world did you cut out that wreath to perfection. This is absolutely gorgeous stamping. Think this is one of my all time favorites of your cards. Lovely!

  5. Stunning, Bev! What a wonderful wreath you've created! I saw that 'assignment' in class as well, and am feeling daunted; a mess is likely to ensue! Still, need to give it a try - along with getting some other homework done! Your card is certainly giving me incentive to get stamping and get cutting!

  6. Such a pretty card Bev, your fussy cutting is brilliant and I love your colour choices.

  7. This looks stunning! It is a totally different way to cut something out, but the effect is so special! Enjoy your sunday, Gerrina

  8. Goodness this fussy cutting is just amazing, you really are a star at this and the soft colours are stunning. Enjoy the rest!!

  9. How fun is that design??? I love everything about this, Bev!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Beautiful card - that wreath is so fresh and pretty! You did an amazing job cutting out the middle and the die cut sentiment works perfectly :)

  11. Your doing so well with the Online Class, I still haven't made it past Day 2 with my homework. I would love to try out this technique, you've done it perfectly. I just don't have the right stamps at the moment but so good you can come back to it all. Look forward to seeing more of your homework!!

  12. You got a beautiful card out of this technique and what a clever idea to mount the panel on foam - I'll have to do that next time I work with this technique.
