A very quick Heidi Swapp!

I had so much to do today (including a cheeky overtime shift) but my Heidi Swapp stamps arrived in the mail and I was desperate to try them after waiting for long for them to arrive from the states.

First of all I got some old backing paper and put it on a 15cm by 10cm card stock. Next I folded and scored in half and I was ready to decorate.
A girl at my craft class last weekend was saying she was ‘scared of stamping’ as one mistake could ruin a whole project. I recommend stamping on scrap pieces of paper that are plain. Stamping on pattern pieces of paper can distract the eye, especially if it’s text, it can become unreadable.
This simple happy birthday stamp went on great and was really bold and the beautiful traditional Heidi Swapp font is to die for.
I topped it off with some bunting made from We r Memory Keepers bakers twine and Dovecraft bunting die cuts with Heidi Swapp bunting stamps in the background to give t that 3D effect.
Finally I added a little flower with some bling and my card was complete! It took around 10 minutes and it looks so sweet and simple!

I really recommend ALL of Heidi Swapp’s products.. Her stamps are great, her project life cards are beautiful and I just LOVE that font! Don’t we all?
