While everyone is in isolation or lock-down or whatever insanity seems to be striking the entire world at the moment, I choose to send cards to friends (while our postal system is still working). One of the cards I made for this purpose is to tell people that they are totally awesome. This month's stamp of the month is PERFECT for isolation. There is lots you can do with stamping, colouring and masking.
I challenge you to make a card and post it to a friend who is in isolation... if you can't get out at the moment. Make and write cards ready for when you can get out to post them. Hey you can even start your Christmas cards early!
the Stamp set is called O-fish-ally Awesome—April Stamp of the Month. O-fish-ally Awesome (S2004) is only available during April, 2020. Full Australian retail price is $34 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $9 when accompanied by an $80 order.
I cut a strip of the Seas the Day Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet
at 3.45 x 5 inches. Then I used Black ink to ink the edges of the striped paper. I stamped the fish and the title on a circle with black ink and sponged with a sponge dauber with Canary yellow ink around the edge and along the middle to get some texture. I added the shell and the two heart stickers from the Seas the Day Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet. (I did ink the edge of the bottom heart to see if it could stand out better) with the blue on grey.
There is a great stamp set that I can't wait to get hold of. That if you're making cards or scrapbooks or journals of your time in isolation or lock-down, then this is the stamp set to order. Its called Let's Stay Home (CC3212).
Cardstock is on sale, which is a perfect time to sort your stash and work out which colours you are running short of. Then you can do the multi-packs or combo-packs or single colour packs.
