I made a card a few weeks ago to get ready for my Card Buffet.  I wasn’t happy with the finished card but with the encouragement of my lovely blog friend Patti, I touched it up a bit.  Here is the stepped-up version for you Patti. 🙂


I stamped the swirly Happy Birthday from ‘Another Great Year’ onto Whisper White card and adhered it to a Whisper White card base.  I also stamped this onto Tempting Turquoise card and cut the banners off and adhered them over the banners on the white card.  It was a simple white on white card. I have seen a few stampers create white on white cards and they always look so classy and crisp.  I love the look but can never get it to work right.  It looked a bit plain.  What to do??? If I ripped it apart and mount it on a coloured card base  it was only going to get all scrunched up.  So I stamped the little Macarons from the stamp set.  I coloured the centres of them with the Markers and then used the aquapainter to spread the ink out.  This was a really risky move.  If I stuff up the stamping or colouring, then whole card is ruined.  But, what did I really have to lose!!!  I added a few Adhesive Rhinestones for dazzle.  I was pleased with the end result.  What do you think???

I love this set ‘Another Great Year’.  It is such a bargain at $41.95 Woodmount or $33.95 Clear mount. I think you need this set in your collection. You can buy this directly at my Online store here or contact me to purchase it.

Thanks for stopping by,
