My super sweet, generous and talented friend Emily sent me a couple of gorgeous stamp sets for my birthday and I just couldn’t wait to start using them. One of the sets she chose was “Paint the Town” from Penny Black (she knows me too well!). Soooo cute! (Oh no, I cannot find this set on their site! Such a shame if they have discontinued it!) The little hedgehog lying on his back immediately called out to be stamped. As is my want, I went with a super simple design.
Here’s the card…
Thinking the card might be a little too plain, I attempted the design again but added a couple of extra die cut shapes from the Die-namics Blueprints 8 set from My Favourite Things. I have a couple of the Blueprints die sets but really haven’t used them other than for basic outlines such as the stitched square. I think it is time to step up my usage as they have so many different dies you can use. A side effect of this is that I now have a few more Blueprints dies on my wishlist. Uh oh! lol
Here’s the second card…
It will come as no surprise to you to find out I have another couple of cards in the making using the same stamp. Love this little guy!
I couldn’t finish this post without telling you a little bit about the gorgeous items Emily makes. Emily runs an Etsy shop called Chloe Jane Handmade and makes the most wonderful things including ADORABLE personalised tooth fairy pillows as well as bibs and blankets. She’s amazing!
So, I’m off to play with this stamp set some more as I still have ideas for this cutie and I haven’t even started to use the other gorgeous images in the set.
Hope you are all having a fantastic day!
