Back in my stamp room

Today is the first day back at my Stamping Table after a long Holiday visiting Family in Brisbane.

It’s always great to go back home and visit family and do the things we cannot do here in Winton.  One week into our holiday and Bianca (my 2 yr old) broke her leg on a jumping castle while at a Christmas Party so the next 5 weeks were a bit challenging.

Bianca was determined not to let a broken leg get in her way of having fun, while activities like going to the beach, swimming in the pool and going to the park were out.  We planned some great day activities to SeaWorld, Under Waterworld & Currumbin Sanctuary.  Plus we were able to catch with family and friends and visit a few of our favourite restaurants as well.

To be honest, while visiting Brisbane was fun I did however, miss being in my craft space creating, and while I was drooling over the occasions & Sale-a-bration catalogues I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some of the new products and start playing.

Today was that day… yay!!!  While this project didn’t use any of the new items from our Occasions Catalogue (my order hasn’t arrived yet *sigh*) It’s always good to visit some of our old, forgotten items and stretch our supplies.

Our Sweet & Sassy Framelits while there are multiple different size and shapes hearts there was a set of 4 that nested perfectly into each other. I started by using a piece of washi tape to connect all the hearts together and cut these hearts using Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach, Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo cardstock.

Next I assembled the pieces together like a puzzle.  The sentiment comes from Birthday Blooms Stamp Set, which has been heat embossed using White Embossing powder on the hearts directly and the second card using a piece of vellum.

Using stacked dies together creates fun and fast cards.  This technique would also work great with scraps of patterned paper.
