A request for future happiness, otherwise know as ‘At last’!

Back in July our youngest daughter got engaged. We knew it was on the way because her now fiancé had already asked permission. Being a card maker I could hardly go out and buy one but I did want to make something a little special. I think I succeeded.

Materials used:SAM_1828(watermarked)
Spesch Designer Stamps – Engagement
Accordion card die set
heart and flowers peel offs
white blending card
Copic pens
green and blue adirondack ink pads
centura pearl card
small silver gem

I printed out the image and coloured it with Copics before cutting out the two people separately. Using the die set I cut out the pages for my card from Centura Pearl card and then the inner circles from stamping card. (The final circle was cut from card which had the sentiment printed on it, I used my computer for that.) On two of the circles I used the inks and a blending brush to create grass and sky backgrounds to mount my figures onto. I stuck the circles to the card and then added the boy and girl to two and the peel offs to the third.Finally I added my very small silver gem to the ring in the box.

Thank you for stopping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
