Stamp-a-faire 2015: Bridal Challenge

On Saturday Papetrey Ink hosted their fourth annual Stamp-a-fair which is an online all-day stamping event. I didn’t manage to do much during the week-end but I’ve now finished my card for the first of the challenges: The Bridal Challenge. Here you had to create a card using all white with only a neutral colour for the sentiment.

I decided to use the Heart Cover Plate to diecut a piece of vellum that I cut down so that it would fit in the middle of my card. I stitched it to the card at the top and bottom leaving a few strands of thread visible at the top of the card.

To add some detail and interest I added four clusters of hearts, stitched them down and added some pearls to each cluster.

For the sentiment I diecut the word “celebrate” in a silver glitter paper and added to the card.


I’ve added this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Stamp-a-faire Morning Timer Challenge


I won’t be able to play much for this year’s Stamp-a-faire but I’ll do as much as I can. The Morning Timer Challenge was perfect for someone without much time on their hands since the sketches and colour combinations were there to start working with.



I was too quick though because I missed the fact that you were supposed to combine a sketch and a colour combination – thankfully I was able to fix it but you can still see small remnants of the blue flower button under the terracotta one… Oh well 😉
