Week 85 Theme

For our theme this week we have a really easy project for you... simply incorporate an
OVAL
into your design somewhere... what could be easier?


I always make my wedding couples a card in their colour scheme. This one as black and white...of course!
Firstly I embossed the 'oval' designer frame by Stampin Up through my Big Shot on a larger piece of card. Then cut around it, placing it evenly around the ival embosssed frame. The sentiment is computer generated and the fabulous font is called Ma Sexy. I punched this with an oval punch, again SU and mounted 3d into the centre. Pinched flowers in black and a SU leaf branch. Gems to finish. Uber easy, but using an oval nevertheless!

I discovered the stamps from the Rubber Stamp Gallery some time ago and really love the ones I have. Some of you may remember the sea birds I used on my card for our Sewing challenge, here is another from their range featuring a stylised boat, it really appeals to me. The waves were made from the waste from my SU scalloped edge punch. I added the birds as an afterthought. The sentiment was die cut from the Sizzix Typewriter die.

Another stamp from the Rubber Stamp Gallery. This makes me think of summer cottages by the sea... I really like the birds you can find which look as though they have been carved from driftwood... all sun bleached and worn.
The sentiment is from SU, cut out with a Word Window punch and reduced in size, then mounted on  the larger SU sentiment punchie, which I wrapped with a little baker's twine.
