Stampavie & More and Roses on Paper

I have a combo card today. I have at last managed to use one of my new Sarah Kay stamps (not used these for ages and it's such a shame cos I love them!!) I had made a card this week using these Early Bird papers and they were still on my desk so rather than start hunting for papers that work together I just grabbed these. For me, the longest part of making the card is choosing the papers. Him indoors says it's because I've got way too many papers and if I got rid of 90% of them I would still have too many. Men!! What do they know!! Best not tell him that I have more on their way ha ha.

I have flipped the sketch on Stampavie and More so I could fit me embellies in, and the challenge on Roses on Paper is to use punches combined with another challenge. I used a McGill fancy square punch for the centre border. I punched out four fancy squares then cut them in half and adhered them to the strip of cherry paper (can't see it very well as I used red on red, not very clever Bev!!)sarah-kay-spring-is-back-2

For the bow trim all I did was sew four loops and two tails of ribbon together with the button. Here's a close up of the bow trim and also the punched border.sarah-kay-spring-is-back-3

Recipe:
Stamps:
Sarah Kay Spring is back, sentiment Whiff of Joy
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Early Bird from The Hobby House
Tools: McGill Fancy Square (large) punch, sewing machine, oval nestibilities, SU Word Window punch
Embellies:
Flowers from Crafty Feeling, buttons from stash (heart button from Ebay yonks ago)

  28. Gorgeous card Bev. Those papers are delish. Barry always says I have way too many papers that I couldn't possibly use them all, but I just tell him that I will get rid of half of them and he can buy me stamps to fill up the space they leave. That shuts him up lol. What do men know about our addiction anyway? lol
