Happiness is…..

Brand new cutting pads for my Big Shot!!  I can’t believe how much simple pleasure I got from opening and using them – like rolling in fresh, virgin snow!!  I am so happy!!

Anyhoo, aside from that I also got a Stamp Press!  Watching the video tutorials on the Clean and Simple Cardmaking classes (where EVERYONE uses them!!) made me realise I could not live my life any longer without one.  However, finding one in the UK was not an easy task.  In the end, after trolling through 4 pages of Google I did find one and it arrived today – yay!!  No more dropping my acrylic block on top of my card when trying to eyeball where to stamp – can’t wait to with it play!

So, the card I’m sharing today was inspired by the techniques showcased in Day 6 of Clean and Simple Card Making 2.  Kristina made a card using a tone-on-tone background which I just LOVED.  So I used my Zig Zag background stamp from Hero Arts and the new and very wonderful Leafy Accents dies from Clearly Besotted (available soon!!).

I am So pleased I participated in these classes – I really look forward to every new class.  I really recommend it to anyone looking to boost their mojo!!

Right, off to watch Greys Anatomy (up to series 5 now!!)

Big HUgs,

  2. Beautiful card Caryn! I’m thinking of getting the Martha Stewart version of the stamp press (Ashley Cannon Newell recommends it) but right now I just want more stamps. 🙂

    Love your soft background and the leafy accents and rhinestones placement!
