GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up created by Crunchie Crafts – Day 1
Apologies for the absence, but family life has not been easy and I needed some time out. But i’m back with lots of lovely projects to show you and hopefully inspire you with. Today I am showing you the first of 5 projects that I used the Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin Up for. I made these for fathers day, but you can change the greeting for birthday, or for any special occasion for that wonderful man in your life.
To make this I used the lovely new thick Whisper White Cardstock for my card base, cut to 11 3/4″ x 5 3/4″. Folded in half to create a 5 3/4″ square card. Then I added some Typeset DSP, which had been ink distressed.
This DSP (Designer Series Paper) is really lovely to use and is slightly lighter in weight than our other DSP, but the designs are really beautiful and very versatile.
I stamped onto whisper white and cut the gorgeous frame using a rectangle of DSP and our square framelits. Its easy to create this lovely polaroid photo effect in this way. To create the banner I cut a 1″ strip of cardstock, stamped my sentiment and then using Snips cut the banner end. I stuck this onto my card using dimensionals. Everything has been distressed with crumb cake ink, before I added some burlap ribbon and some chevron ribbon, and finally stuck my polaroid style stamped topper.
Check back again to see the next of my 5 projects using this stamp set.
