Red, White and Blue Too......


I spent most of yesterday afternoon watching the Diamond Jubilee celebrations on the Thames -whilst doing a little crafting - creating another entry for this week's Red, White and Blue themed challenge over on Simply Less is More

For the past few months I've been undertaking the mammoth task of cataloguing all the stamps in my stash and rearranging my storage for them all.  Once it's finished it will be so much easier to look through the images in the catalogue when I want a particular stamp, rather than relying on my memory as to what I have ! 

As I was cataloguing a pack of stamps I received as a free gift with a purchase from Crafty Individuals, I found these two floral images.  Seeing them stamped in the catalogue sparked the idea of the design for this card.

The images were stamped using Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink before cutting out and attaching to the base card using PinFlair glue to raise them up a little.  The Hero Arts sentiment was stamped directly onto the base card using Memento Paris Dusk ink. 

Edited :  Just discovered this fits the challenge over on The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog, so I've entered it for that challenge too !

I was on a roll yesterday and created a few more batches of CAS cards, I'll share these with you over the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by to check out today's project, hope you enjoyed your visit.
