Banana Frog stampy time!

The 9th of the month is my time to make a project of the day for Banana Frog - hooray, its so much fun focusing a project to just stamps, well, mainly stamps.

I used very little supplies focusing more on tools including 3 delicious coloured inks in teal, fuchsia and chocolate

To draw a large perfect circle, simply pencil around a roll of double sided tape in the centre of your card blank

Using your inks in rotation, switch between various flowers and shapes from the Superlicious stamp set from Banana Frog, keeping each shape on the circle line

Work your way around the circle and when finished, erase the pencil line

Wrap a length of ribbon through the spine of the card and tie with a small knot to secure. Adhere to flowers as displayed (using brads in the centre) and then along the ribbon strip, attach a greeting of choice.

Finally accent each flower with a pearly sticker to complete

I just have the guilt of still having ink left on some those stamps 6 hours after finishing it - hmmmmmmmm....................tum ti tum ti tum

Don't forget to leave a comment either here or on yesterdays post to win a collection of papers to work with from my next CD - you get the chance to make a card for the show which airs on the 30th June.

Guilt? Nah matey - I cleaned a basket full of stamps yesterday..some are definitely from Christmas. Clean stamps is for when you wanna re-use 'em....is all.

Hi Kirsty, omg - how guilty do i feel, haven't checked your blog since 3 June, but then WOW what a lovely card - definitely feel inspired now, & was thinking what an absolutely fab scrapbook page that would make!! Your nephew is definitely a very scrummy baby, gosh how i miss not having any babies in the family (my grandson was 6 yesterday!) Just looking at those gorgeous photos, you can almost smell that lovely smell only babies have! Enjoy him as long as you can - you know how quick the time flies! Love your photoshoot pics & comments - did have a giggle over that. Sorry for the sooooo long comment, but so glad to catch up on all your news. Lastly, thank you so much for the lovely e-mail you sent me, i really didn't expect a reply as i know your'e a really busy lady, but it was great, and i was really pleased. Colour me crazy arrived yesterday & i've just had a quick look - looks great. Take care, loads of love Kathey (aka "old scrapper") kathey.archer@ntlworld.com

Like all the best ideas, simple, effective, and makes you go "why didn't I think of that?!".

A question - could you do a post explaining how you do the ribbons on your cards? I really struggle with it, and I've studied lots of your beautiful cards and I just can't work out how you do it, and how you affix everything...

Candace said...

So simple, yet very very effective. just love this!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful technique

That is an ace card, I'm sure even I could make that (not a great stamper, I tend to get ink EVERYWHERE)

Angela Weimer said...
