It's play day!

The last day of class over at Stretch Your Stamps 2 is a play day.  What's better than a play day in class?  I took out Rounded diamonds, the graphic stamp set from Avery Elle and Simply Fabulous Sayings from My Favorite Things to play.

I didn't have a plan for the card.  It's play day!  I'm just going to play.   Here's what I came up with:

I first cut out an A2 size panel for stamping.  Originally there was a row of red "fans" on top but it was trimmed off because I had to put the sentiment on the card base.  Have I convinced you that clear stamps make it really easy to line up images?  I don't have steady hands but I still managed to line them up fine.  Woo hoo~

I wanted to use the word "Amazing" from the Simply Fabulous Sayings then I thought I'd say "Have an Amazing day".  "Have an" comes from a retired Close to My Heart set, then the word "day" comes from the Winnie & Walter set.  Mixing and matching the words does stretch the use of our stamps.  Again, thanks to clear stamps I can first see whether they fit on my card and play with them to determine the placement of each words.  It's not difficult to line them up either. :)

I'm linking up my card to the following:
