Happy Birthday: We Must Celebrate (CASE the catalogue)

Happy Birthday: We Must Celebrate

Hi, today’s card features a stamp set which I cannot believe I haven’t used until now as it is so very cute!   The We Must Celebrate stamp set was one which immediately went on my ‘must-have’ list when the Occasions catalogue was released.  I love all the cute critters and the extra little details so you can create a range of different scenes for different occasions.  The other thing which I really like about this stamp set is that some of the sentiments come from a multiple person perspective.

I thought the sample card in the catalogue was really cute and was the inspiration for my card.  I really wanted to whip up a quick and easy card where the critters were the feature.  I also really wanted to give my Stamparatus a workout so I used it to stamp the background.  It made it soooo fast!  Now, as much as I love the Stamparatus, and believe me I love it, it is not a miracle worker so if you position the stamp crookedly – that is how it will stamp.   You can test out the stamp position before you commit to it on your project if you aren’t 100% sure you have it in the right place.   I also used the Stamparatus to ensure the stamped image was super black – especially for the racoon.  It was so easy to stamp a layer, ink and re-stamp.  It did this about three or four times.

Here’s the card…

I cannot wait to play with this stamp set some more and use a few more of the elements. I also think I will be creating many more backgrounds using this technique in the future.  I love it – and now, with the Stamparatus, it is so much easier!  Don’t forget you don’t have to use all the critters at the one time. You could always mask some out of the scene, or cut out the critter you want to focus on. This stamp has a huge scope for variation.

Don’t forget to take part in my Stamparatus Giveaway!  The giveaway is open from March 1 to March 31, 2018.
