Good evening and I hope you’ve had a lovely Thursday – just one day to go to the weekend!  I’m a bit excited for this weekend as Libby and I are off to visit friends in Canberra for some stamping and creative fun! It will be nice to get away!

Sorry this week’s Thursday Time Out is coming through a little later today – things just havent gone to plan today.

I wanted to share a new box today however the video is taking longer than normal to upload so I thought I’d pop in and share one of my Envelope Cards I made for Vanessa’s Party last week.

I love these cards and they are so quick and easy and this one is so bright and cheery as its using the Sweet Taffy Designer Series paper and one of the new Photopolymer Flower Patch Stamp Set.

I simply chose the colours that are used in the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper pack for the stamps inside – makes life so much easier and I dont have to stress over what colours to use as Stampin’ Up! have already done that for me! Too Easy!!

This is the first of the Stampin’ Up! Photopolymer Stamps I’ve used and I must say they were so easy to stamp with. I had used photopolymer stamps years ago but didnt like how the ink ‘bubbled’ on the stamp and how i couldnt get a good stamped image.  Stampin’ Up! definitely did their research and improved this type of rubber for their stamps.

There are still a few issues when stamping larger images as there is not ‘cushion’ on the stamp so you may need to used a stamping mat/piercing mat under your paper or cardstock so you get a good clear image. I love how you can see through the stamps for 2 step stamping like I’ve done here however I still love my wood mount stamps and they are still my favourite!

I hope you like my little envelope card and if you’d like to see how they are done I’d love to show you – they are so very easy with the Envelope Punch Boardd!  Simply work out a date with your friends and I’ll bring everything along for you and your friends  to create a lovely card and have a fun afternoon or evening!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back tomorrow for a sweet little box using the Envelope Punch Board.
