Congratulations and Celebrations

Welcome to Wednesday with Stamping Grandma.  It's half-way through the week and how are you holding up ?  I do hope your week is going well wherever in the world you are.

For today's project I used some newly acquired stash items that I'd been itching to use.

For the design I used:

  • Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Fossilized Amber (both new 2015 colours) *
  • Kaisercraft stamps
  • Ville d'ailleurs stamp sets - Lutinia and Zintenkia *
  • Black Archival Ink
  • SU! Sassy Salutations stamp set
* these are my new stash items

Using the DI's and Kaisercraft stamps I created the background then overstamped the Ville d'ailleurs images using Archival ink.  The sentiment was also stamped using Archival.

As this fits the current Simply Less is More challenge theme 'Congratulations'  I shall be entering my card for the challenge, it is an Anniversary Congratulations card for a couple of pals.

Thanks for dropping by today, hope you liked today's project.
