enjoyed working on the four cards in this kit, and I’m sorry I’ve come
to the end!
Unusually for me, I’ve been pretty good with the first three cards and more or
less stuck to the plan, but I allowed myself to play with this last
love the way the image allows the shadow part of the THANKS to be
Although I didn’t feel able to do any shading in such a small area myself, I’m sure a more skilled painter than me could.
I stayed with the Dark Pool Party
for the main part of the letters, and the Light Night of Navy for the
shadows on three of the cards, but I changed to Dark Night of Navy for the fourth one.
There didn’t seem to be much of a difference, but I could have made it darker if I’d gone over it again!
first card I changed by cutting a Paper Doily in half, and adhering it
behind the banner so it could be seen top and bottom.
This is the card I
did the shadows using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend (SB) – I think you can just about see the difference in the photographs.
I also added two Basic
Rhinestones that I’d painted with the Dark Pool Party SB.
adhered onto two black circles that get stamped as part of the image.
the second card, I did the same as the first but instead of using a
Paper Doily, I used one of the fabulous Gold Foil Snowflakes.
almost stuck to the instructions for the third card!
Apart from the
rhinestones, the only other change I made was to adhere the top of the
banner to the top of the card, instead of in the centre!
stuck to the instructions for the fourth card……………..until I
decided to add a piece of the Gold Foil Tape across the top of the
banner, and of course the Rhinestones!
The top strip doesn’t look like
Gold Foil Tape in the photograph, but trust me, that’s what it is! LOL!
Stampin’ Up! have supplied some really fabulous envelopes in this kit.
Can you imagine the thrill of seeing any one of these landing on your door mat?
evening hubby and I went to an Indian restaurant to celebrate his
I cannot believe we have lived here for fourteen years, and
we’ve never been to this fabulous restaurant before.
It’s just two miles
away, and specialises in South Indian dishes that neither of us have
ever heard of!
We had a brilliant relaxed meal, and can’t recommend the
Curry Leaf highly enough!
Anyway, that’s it from me today! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

You really have been enjoying this Kit haven't you? I'm regretting that I didn't go for it at the time myself, but sometimes we just have to make hard choices … it's been fun following you thought these cards though. The cards are great! Glad you and your hubby had such an enjoyable experience for his birthday dinner last evening! Bet you won't wait another year to go back there! Lol
