Layered Stamping

Layered stamping is so much easier these days using photo polymer stamps with no need to fiddle about with stamp positioning gadgets although of course I do find them useful when I can't see through the stamps and often make use of the one I have.  I spotted a card similar to this on You Tube and decided to make my version but in different colours and with different stamps details of which are given below.

Using My Prize

As well as the lovely heart stamp set used on yesterday's card I also won a Gemini die as part of the prize recently and that is what I've used on this card.  The card was inspired by one spotted on my friend Jill's blog where she had used three circles for her flowers and this is my design using the same stamp set.  Jill has also made two other cards using these same floral stamps so do take a look.  The flowers were stamped onto white card before cutting them out using dies and adding pearls to the centres.  The blue layer was cut using the border die and the top section was embossed.

Pixie Snippets Challenge 218

My lovely Pixie Snippets prize arrived during the week and I've used one of the stamps on this anniversary card along with some snippets of paper and card.  The hearts were stamped onto the background then stamped again on some toning paper so that I could paper piece them.   The die cut couple were cut from a snippet of white card and backed with card in the same design as the paper pieced hearts, with the largest heart then being cut from a left over snippet so that it could be raised up for dimension.  Details of items used are below as usual..

Papers and card - printed from Funky Hand Papercraft Factory programme
Die - Tonic
Stamp - Woodware Wedding hearts
Sentiment - computer generated, Sue Wilson Die and Stampin' Up punch
