Guy Greetings Revisited

Last month I showed you a Fathers Day card made with the Guy Greetings Set which you can see HERE.  As I was writing up that blog post my little grey cells started to whir and I began to dream up this card...same stamps, different colour and different sentiment!

I've finally made the card (crafting has been taking a bit of a back seat while my eldest two children sit their GCSEs - half way through now and there is light at the end of the exam tunnel!) and I'm just in time to enter The Paper Players Challenge #347 where the theme is Birthdays.

 With the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig I have created the array of shoes and hats using Night of Navy ink.  Then I have wrapped a vellum band around the centre portion of the array which creates a square frame for the large die cut Happy Birthday to sit on.  You can still see the shoes and hats underneath, but the die cut becomes the focus and sends a clear Happy Birthday greeting!

I couldn't resist making a blue version of the Fathers Day card.  I'm not sure which is my favourite - blue or the original black one. 

For completeness, I also made a blue birthday card using the Happy Birthday from the stamp set.

Thanks for visiting today.  Happy crafting

  1. Fab use of the stamps!! All cards look great

  2. I just LOVE these! You created that background paper perfectly, using my most favorite masculine stamp set! Thanks so much for sharing these at the Paper Players this week!

    1. Wow! Thanks for your kind and generous words LeAnne - you have made me blush (and smile)!

  3. Karen these are both fabulous cards - I just love your backgrounds, they have made me want to dig out this set which I haven't used for ages! Love it paired with the Happy Birthday die. Thanks for sharing your creations and joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

    1. Thanks Joanne. Stamping the backgrounds was SO satisfying. Hope you enjoy revisiting Guy Greetings
