August offer idea

I should be arriving in Krakow this morning... and will be here for 6 days so have scheduled a few posts for you in the meantime so you get your crafting fix.

The Reason to Smile stamp set that is available during August is a definate must have.  Retailing at just £14.95 for the clear set (£18.95 for the wood set) it's a bargain because there are 7 different stamps (3 images and 4 backgrounds) and even though the them is 'flowers' I've already seen some ideas using them for other things.

And the best news is that if your order is £60 you can get your hands on this stamp set for FREE.  Check out further details here.

So here is my first attempt at a card made using the Reason to Smile stamp set ...

I've coupled Poppy Parade with Lucky Limeade to create this get well wishes card.  The stamps in the set are in 2 parts, the background stamp and the outline stamp, for this card I've just used the outline stamp and then coloured the images in with Stampin' Write markers using a blender pen.
I've then used the smaller flower background stamp to create a background pattern on the Lucky Limeade card base before adding a border strip (punched with the Eyelet Border punch) and then the image panel which was matted onto Poppy Parade card stock.
