Our challenge this month is to use 1 image, 2 patterned papers & 3 embellishments. No problem, especially with the new Perfect Prints paper pads which are fantastic value & come in a great variety of colour ways. I have used the "Huge Thanks" single stamp from Francoise Read for my image & then paper pieced using 2 contrasting papers. Just stamp onto the base card & then onto the 2 chosen papers too. Simply cut out alternate letters & re assemble onto the base so that you have all the detailing already there for you. Accentuate the overlapping areas on the image with Sakura pens. Add the ribbon to the card blank before attaching the design with some 3d foam tape. Finish by adding the Candis & picking out the accents on the stamped image with Liquid Pearls. Simple!


  1. This is gorgeous Debs. I love your fabulous patterned letters, such a lovely bright creation.
