I have been out for a bit today with hubby and my youngest Zack. We had a wander around the antiques hall in Bournemouth but unfortunately (possibly not for hubs) we didn't find any "must haves" there so it was just a look today ;-)
My finger is still hurting ad I think I'm going to be suffering for a while longer which is actually a right pain (ha ha) because, as is always the way, I'm feeling really creative right now! There is so much I want to be getting on with....
Anyway, there isn't much I can do but wait it out so today I have some invites I made a while ago for a friend of hubby's at his work. they were after a vintage feel and so I used Retro fresh DSP and the Banner Punch that was available during Sale-a-Bration- but don't worry if you didn't get one because they will be for sale in the new catalogue coming 1st July. Why not consider joining my Stampers Club for a FREE copy of the new catalogue as well as hostess goodies, you can message me for more details or click on the link above.
OK, Back to the invites. I printed the wording straight onto Crumb Cake card and added them to a Tangerine Tango layer and then another piece of Crumb Cake. The finished invites were A5 size (14.8cm x 21cm or 5.83" x 8.27")
Once I had punched all the papers out I curled them up using my Bone Folder. I lined up the centre banner and spaced out the rest either side before glueing them down with Tombow (the best glue ever!) I then made a template to make sure they were all exactly the same on each invite. OCD much? Moi? ;-)
and then just because I could I stamped the envelopes with the (now retired) SAB set Banner Blast, a new banner stamp set will be available to purchase to match the punch in the new catalogue though, rest assured.
OK, that's me done for today, I'm off to try to rope one of the children to put the kettle on and make me a cuppa, wish me luck with that!
Thanks for looking today,
