Lovely Letters of Joy

I have been enjoying the cleanandsimple blog for some time now and decided that I would join in with their Fall to Layout 113 challenge.

I had played around with my Lovely Letters set last year thinking I could spell Joy or Noel for Christmas cards and unfortunately could never stamp the letters straight enough!  I decided to try again.  This time, with some excellent advice from Karen, a fellow blogger and Stampin'  Up! demonstrator, I took some of my letters off the blocks and used them as clear mount stamps.  The hardest part was getting the label on straight.  Once I did that, it was straight stamping!

The squares are 1 1/4" and the red panel behind is 1 1/2" x 4 1/4".  I did another panel in green and it is 1 5/8" x 4 1/4".

Of course I had to use my BIG GUY and emboss the background.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Lovely Letters Alphabet
Ink:  Real Red & Garden Green SU Markers
Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White, Garden Green
Accessories:  Big Shot, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder

Now I need to unmount the rest of that set!

I hope you have had a lovely day and got to stamp some.

This is terrific! Love how you colored in your letters so you could include red and green both. Do you use a STampamajig? I have never looked back once I learned how to use mine. It's a lifesaver!
