CASOMETRY CHALLENGE 3 - Stage 2 with Honey Bee Stamps

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm back with stage 2 of the CASometry Challenge by Anna Kossakovskaya. So quickly? - you may ask... Well, I know she only posted the challenge yesterday, but it just so happens that I am going away for a week on Sunday morning, and so... I didn't have much time, I had to act fast! (LOL) That also means that I will probably be a bit of a last minute entrant for stage 3, but I am really determined to make all stages this time, early or late! :o)

Before I share some more info about my card, I just want to say HUGE THANK YOU to Anna, for featuring my card in her blog post. The 6 participants might have been chosen randomly, but I am still happy (I don't need a lot to be happy, see?)!

Stage 2 - One random stamp set + using one stamp minimum 3 times

I wish you could have seen my face expression when I saw the requirements for the second stage. It's easy peasy, right? Well, not so much when your random stamp set is... a sentiment set! Although, I have so say, I brainstormed, and there are LOADS of possibilities. I just wish I had the time to explore them all! :o)

I need an anniversary card for next week (10 years together with my hubby, wow! That's quite impressive when you're only in your early 30s, right?), so in the end this is what I came up with - and do bear with me, please, as this is a card that was REALLY hard to take photos of:

I know it's hard to see, so let me explain a bit: the panel is matted with gold foil paper. The background is patterned paper. On top, we have a vellum heart (I wish I had thicker vellum... but in person it is much more visible than in the pictures...), and the sentiment on the heart is heat embossed with gold embossing powder. And I used HAPPY three times, see? :o) Actually, I used it 4 times - see the last photo, showing the sentiment inside the card...

I am super happy that I got to use the stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps - that font is absolutely amazing! That's another set from my NBUS (Never Before Used Stamps) pile, woohoo! 

I am entering the card into:
CASometry Challenge 3 - Stage 2  (used "happy" stamp 4 times)

I hope hubby enjoys his card. I know it's a bit girly, but in the end - it's kind of for both of us, right? :o)

Take care and I'll be back after my holidays,
