Stamptacular sneak peek and this months batch of thank yous

The little glimpse above is just a sneak peek at one of the projects that we'll be making at Sunday's Stamptacular. In the card at the front you'll see that we're using the Fine Flourish background stamp. Everyone who attends the Stamptacular will get a goodie bag that includes this fabulous stamp along with another surprise item!

It's not too late to book but I do need to hear from you very soon, so that I can make sure that we cater for enough people. Just use the Paypal button on the right to book your place (£30 for a single ticket or 10% off when you bring a friend). More details about the day are here.

Now, on to today's card and this is my batch of thank yous that are going out with everyone's order this month. I loved the faux dry embossed technique so much, that I used it for these cards and just kept swapping which of the little flowers from the Pocket Silhouettes set I used on each one, so this is one of four designs:

Stamp set: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz
Ink: Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Craft Whisper White
Punches: Modern Label, Word Window

The card blank is a Square of Basic Black. The chosen flower was stamped in the bottom right corner of a square of Pear Pizzazz using the faux dry embossed technique and then matted direct to the card front. The same flower was stamped in Basic Black ink onto Pear Pizzazz card, matted onto Basic Black card and then popped up on the left of the card front using dimensionals. Using Basic Black ink again, the sentiment was stamped onto Pear Pizzazz card and punched out with the Word Window. This was matted direct to a Modern Label punched from Basic Black card. The right side of the sentiment was popped up on a dimensional and the left side was adhered direct to the raised image.

If you'd like a demonstration of the faux dry embossed technique then please email me.

Here's the first batch that I made:

Hope to see you at the Stamptacular on Sunday.
