I admit it, I am a bad, bad girl – I’ve had a couple of CJ’s to do, and just pushed them to the back of my mind, so tonight I grapsed the nettle as it were..and actually got on with one.
It’s Di’s, and is entitled “My Favourite Things”. It’s drying at the moment, so I can upload it yet, but I am really pleased with it. I’ve used my seaside type stamps again (yes I know I’ve been using them a lot, but it does prove that you can do such different things with the same stamps) and also the new Heart by Collage by Anita’s I got a week ago.
I had a great time playing with my Crystal Blue Opalite re-inkers – they been put away in the drawer, and it wasn’t until I saw a demo on Create & Craft that I remembered them.
I’ve also used the UK STampers Colour Challenge #4 colours – Garnet, Amethyst and Amber – actually, if I’d been a bit smarter I could have used a Fleur de lis, and knocked Wednesday Stamper Challenge on the head to – LOL!
Our holiday is fast approaching now, and I’ve suddenly thought just how much I’m gonna miss crafting….so at the weekend I am going to put together a wee travel kit containing, some ink pads, stamps and cardstock. Then I maybe can just do a few things to keep me from having to go cold turkey whilst we are away.
Rob and I had a chat the other night, and he is all keyed up with his responsibilities house sitting whilst we are away….and I think that he’s looking forward to having his girlfriend staying for the week.
or you could call this post … that’s a better effort.
I just wasn’t happy with the first one, it just looked uncoordinated and messy. So I took off the flower and started again. Admit it, how many times have you done that?
So this is another 6 x 6″ card.
Stamps used: Diamond pattern and swirl are Babies, Hearts & Borders sheet and Flowers & Swirls sheet and French Letter (Stamp Oasis).
Inks and EP’s: Jet Black StazOn; Violet Whispers Dye Ink; Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks and Gold Acylic paint (washed over the organe pattern paper). Kalidescope & Amethyst Tinsel EP’s.
I actually like it – trust me…much better IRL, but then that goes for quite a lot of things in my experience!
Sorry, scan on the squiff too – told you I’d had a bad day.
this week is up, and it’s Garnet, Amethyst and Amber – lovely combo.
I’ve just done a quick card, which I’m waiting for the Glossy Accents to go off, but like this combo so much there will be more of them this week.
I’ve had a busy old day at the Kingdom of Blah, and feel a bit worn out.
my contribution to this Sunday’s Colour Challenge #2, which was Lapis Lazuli, Oynx, Ivorny and Carnelian.
Slightly bigger project as my second piece for last week’s Colour Challenge #2.
I used a piece of dark blue cardstock as a base (it’s slightly brighter IRL), stamped with Aud’s Design Hearts and flowers from the Cat’s House Sheet.
I added green Sakura gelly roll centres to the flowers, and clear to the petals for a bit if dimentsion.
A piece of 8 x 8 square of K & Co floral, with the photo of my Grandma, me and Maggie the cat matted on the same dark blue cardstock, and then a piece of Chatterbox gingham paper.
The file folder is also from K & Co and was in the same pad. Inside it is covered with the Chatterbox gingham paper, and holds the journalling. The quote on the from is from HOTP, torn and coloured with Whispers Dye inks in Butterscotch and Starry Starry Night.
Apart from the drying time for the glaze pens, it was super quick and easy page.
first attempt at last week’s #2 colour challenge, which is a quick birthday card for my FIL. I really suck at very masculine cards/layouts I’m afraid – this is as butch as I can do.
Stamps: all from Aud’s new Sheet (Cat & House).
Ink: Starry, Starry Night Whispers Dye Ink, and Sakura Gelly Roll pen in the green and clear.
The card is a pre-made one in Light Blue from Papermania, pattern paper is by Chatterbox.
