I adapted this card from a swap I made for Jo’s Team Training Day a few weekends ago and had a few left over to make some quick cards with. I love the Hostess papers we had and used some of the new ruffle ribbon in Lucky Limeade too. I used an embossing frame die (all from SU) and the Top Note die, the Leaflets die, punched flowers and pearls and the other colour is mainly Melon Mambo with a bit of Concord Crush (another colour I very rarely use) – very bright for me but I like the change sometimes. Bye for now…
I had quite a few outer edges left over from using the Top Note Die from SU in various colours, so thought I would use them up (I waste nothing!) I used the old papers from saleabration which I loved (hope they come back in the next catalogue), Pool Party and Calypso Coral are the main colours which go nicely with the papers, and the new flower die too; I put lots of the flowers together which you can’t see really well in this photo, added a bright flower brad and a few rhinestones and I quite liked it, hope you do too.
Sun is still shining out there so I am going to have my lunch outside, bye for now!
Good morning, raining here but hey, we need it. I have spent all weekend in the garden planting all my saved plants from my last house. I am sore, tired and achy but at least the garden is looking a lot better, or so I think!
Anyway, also put up my new birdfeeder which the pidgeons seem hell bent on destroying so it prompted me to use a set I hadn’t even looked at! from SU. I used Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and Coral Calypso, some Basic Pearls and also the Everything Eleanor flourish to make a ‘welcome to your new home’ card for a friend who also loves birds! She liked the metaphor…
Ok, time for me to tidy my desk, it just looks like a bomb has hit it and I have scrapbooking to start for my friend’s wedding ‘album’ I am making her as a surprise and for once, I am not starting a project without clearing up from the last – I know we all do it but am trying to tidy my mind seeing as the house is in an abolute tip with all the building and decorating going on downstairs. I am sooo lucky to have my sanctuary, thanks hubby xx
It is so nice to be off school for a few weeks and I am trying to sort out the rest of my Craft Room since we moved in – I still must have a box of stuff in the garage under the mountains of the other stuff we have yet to unpack as I can’t find some things, like my scoring boards and mats.
So this is wedding season and have made another card using the SU Marry Me stamps – I used the Manhattan flowers embossing plate to give some definition to the Whisper White card, stamped the image in black and in the embossing frame, punched a few flowers and added the polka dot black ribbon. I liked it and looks better in real life – my camera has now packed up completely in auto focus, everything is manual and my eyesight is obviously bad!! Bye for now…
