Time to Conga

IMG_0234a

Hi and Good evening everyone, here is another Sneak Peek of the adorable Humphrey Stamps this image just makes me smile every time I look at it.  The stamp is part of the of Humphrey Release from Crafters companion, that will be launched at 9pm on Tuesday on Ideal World, together with a fabulous twin Disc CD.

I am not sure what this style of card is called it is a normal 15cm square card, the front of the card has been scored and folded in the middle.   There are 2 stamps on this sheet that can be joined up to make a long Conga Line or as I have done stamped individually, I stamped and coloured one image for the front of the card then cut around the front elephant as shown, then I stamped and coloured the other image and carefully lined it up so the first elephant on the front of the card joins the bottom conga line and his arm appears to be around the last elephant on the back image.  (Wow what a long winded way of explaining it)!!!!

The lovely bright backing papers and borders are from the accompanying CD.  I have used a Martha Stewart Border Punch to cut a white border for both sides of the card.

I was going to take a photo of the two images joined up but I dropped my camera as I was trying to take the photo and I killed it Sad smile

And here a couple more of the Grandmas Button Sample Cards I made for Katy Sue Designs, this fabulous Cd is Pick of the Week on Create and Craft this week.  I would buy this CD just for the stunning Backing papers,  all the backing papers and images are from the CD
