Birthday and Hello

Hello there. I have a couple of cards to share which used just one stamp set between them, and then I die cut a couple of rectangles from the image:

The circular floral image is quite large, and I was going to use the whole image on one card, but decided to cut it up to make two CAS cards.

Here is the original stamp set picture, just so you can see what I started with:

Beautiful Inside and Out Clear Stamp Set
Funky Fossil Designs, A5 stamp set

I stamped the circular image in Gina K amalgam ink, then coloured with Copics, sticking to the colour scheme from one of the challenges.

Once coloured I then used a small stitched rectangle die from Susan Wilson to cut two pieces out, and attached them in different places in two different sized card bases.

The ‘Hello‘ die is from Simon Says Stamp and part of a recent kit of theirs, die cut in black 4 times and layered together.

The birthday sentiment is from another Simon Says Stamp set called ‘Bee Happy‘ – I was after a small birthday sentiment and this fitted perfectly.

I’m off to get the house ready for having visitors this evening – the first time since March. We are lucky to have a downstairs cloak room – so I have sanitised it, and shut the door so hubby and I won’t use that for the rest of the day. I’ve even ordered a take-away restaurant meal…….not quite ready for going out to a restaurant yet……Can you also imagine I’ve also got out separate cutlery, plates and glasses for them that haven’t seen the light of day since Christmas? Yep – that’s my OCD kicking in!

Anyhoo, I shall be entering the following challenges:
