... are one thing I do use a lot of. It seems everytime I turn around, I am just about out of them & find it is time to create more.
For this lot, I thought I would try something a little different. I have been cleaning out my cardstock & putting all my bits & pieces in their rightful home, when I come across a couple of small pieces of Acetate. So instead of tossing it out, I thought"why not". Grabbed the Stamp Set French Foliage which was still sitting on my desk from 2 projects ago & decided to go with the Regals Collection seeing as though we are in Autumn in Australia.
For my cards I used Night of Navy, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy, Elegant Eggplant, & Always Artichoke Cardstock as my outer layers. I must apologise I don't have the measurements, as they have been used & posted. They will fit the Australian size C6 or 11B envelopes with the coloured Cardstock measuing 5 1/2" x 3 1/2".
I randomly stamped the pieces of Acetate with Staz-On Ink. When stamping onto Acetate, stamp very carefully so as not to let the stamp slip or slide. I set each piece aside allowing to dry & prior to cutting.
Once dry, I cut the Acetate into 1" strips & adhered to the pieces of Whisper White Cardstock before adhering to the Coloured Cardstock.
Wow, when I read that, they would of taken me all up 5 minutes. Believe me, they took a little longer than that!
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!
