Farewell to the Family and Friends stamp set....

Hi all,

Today I am sharing with you a really simple card that I have made using the Family and Friends Stamp Set.  This stamp set features in our Spring/Summer Catalogue and sadly it will not be carrying over into the new 2019/20 Annual Catalogue that launches in June.

I am a BIG fan of this stamp set, and when I saw it some months ago I had to have it and I have loved creating special projects and making all the little characters come alive.  It will be one that remains on my stamp shelf as it is really useful for creating personal images for cards, scrapbooks, notebooks, anything really!

Today's card uses a Whisper White layer of cardstock measuring 10cm x 14.4cm that has been attached to a standard C6 cardbase that has been cut from Flirty Flamingo Cardstock.  

I have used Clear Block C to create the block of colour you see behind the image.  For this I have pressed the block into the Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin' Pad so that the whole block is covered with ink.  I have added water to the ink on the block with a Stampin' Spritzer and then laid the block onto the white cardstock and pressed down gently.  After a few minutes, I have lifted the block off the cardstock and it has left this block of colour.  This is a really clever technique when you want to add a block of colour and one that I am using more and more frequently in my crafting!

Onto a seperate piece of Whisper White Cardstock I have stamped the individual parts to create the person, coloured with Stampin' Blends and then cut out and attached to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionsals.  

To finish, I have added the "Happy Birthday" sentiment which is part of the stamp set.  

I will be re-creating this design over on Facebook at 9.30am this morning to show you just how easy and fun this stamp set is to use! Click on the Facebook icon below to  go straight to my Facebook page.
