My brother collected stamps when he was a boy and I remember his excitement about the possibility of one day discovering a rare stamp. I loved his album with its pages of colourful stamps. One of the must-haves from the spring mini catalogue in my opinion is the Postage Stamp punch - I love being able to make postage stamps in any design I like! The punch is only available until the end of the month, so if you'd like one you'll need to order it soon.
To make the stamps in this card I first cut a 2.5cm (1") square into a post it note and used it as a mask, stamping the aeroplane into the hole and sponging a background with a sponge dauber. The planes were then coloured with markers and the stamps cut out with the Postage Stamp punch which gives them their distinctive border.
I do like a tag on a card! This luggage label-style tag is made from Crumb Cake card stock; I glued a punched circle to it and cut a hole through both layers with my cropadile before threading it with white bakers twine.
This sentiment is from the For My Family set which is so useful for personalising cards and other projects. Uncles, in-laws, teachers, siblings... you name them, everyone gets a mention in this brilliant set!
