Word Play by Sandra

Hello, I am sharing some of my cards from the May shows on Create and Craft.
These feature the wonderful Slim Word Strip 1 stamp set. 
This set contains 3 word strips and a solid background. Great for cards and journals alike.

My first card used the TRAVEL word strip.
I made a background using distress inks and then stamped the Dirigible  and Penny Farthing from Steampunkery.  Once it was all dry I masked the two stamped images with masking tissue.  I then  stamped the Slim Word Strip over the background, moving the strip so that different words could be seen over the card. I removed the masking tissue and layered onto a 7x5 base card.

For my second card I used the solid background stamp with Distress Inks which I spritzed with water before stamping onto watercolour card. I then stamped with the NATURE words. I used a die to cut out a slot and then used a couple of coins and some foam pads to attach the butterfly. I used foam pads to adhere the card to the base as it needs a bit of space for the butterfly "spinner" to work.  I loved seeing the butterfly spin around and was so glad to see it survived the post and worked on the TV too!

 Thanks for looking

  1. Those two Steampunkery images look very effective with all the words large and small surrrounding them, and I love the pretty colourful background Sandra. The second card looks fantastic with the Nature words, and the pretty butterfly spinner and I missed this bit on the tv, but glad it had an outing there too. x
