- failed to get the stampamajig thing to work
- failed to stamp the little flower centres into the little flower stamps of the rather lovely 3 for you punch set
- used a WHOLE sheet of whisper white to make one lousy card.
Soooooo onto cards that I have made - and using stamps and everything. It is Daring Cardmaker day - woo hoo! And this challenge was set by our honourable leader and founder - Jane in NZ.
Jane this week has dared us all to include a quote on our card. Stamped, Computer Generated or Rub Ons it doesn't matter and choose your own style or occassion.My card looks a lot like this
You would not believe how long this simple card took to make. Lets just say that geometry is not my forte. The papers are from an old Self Addressed kit. Although I stopped buying them a few months ago in order to cut down on my craft spending (hah!) I'm sorry to see them go as they were always brilliant kits. I've got plenty left to use up mind!
The image is a StampingBella, mostly coloured in with the Works watercolours. The computer journalling is done with Journalling Hand (again) one of my faves. The cute little buttons are from, um, a shop. (Just as well I don't submit to card making mags!). The flowers are prima and the brads from Crafts by Carolyn, which now I come to think about it may be where the buttons came from too!
Here is a close up of the dimensional aspect of the card
I've been making cards with my "scary" Tildas again. (Most of the family scream in horror whnen I proudly show them off) And made cards not just with the ones I have already coloured in (as my first efforts were not so good yet I can't bring myself to throw them away...) but stamped and coloured new ones. Oh yes.
Here is an example of old colouring - using some Basic Grey Gypsy paper
Hmmm I used a sketch for this but can't remember where from right now (I'm tired see)
This is another pattern on the inside card using MM Noteworthy paper and prima flowers. I'm sure you are all delighted to know that I have now got the knack of using scalloped scissors - it is harder when you are left handed you know... the lovely ribbon thready thing (technical term there) was a gift from my mate Glynis
Now I really must get on with loads and loads of work and try not to fall asleep whil I............zzzzzzzzzzzz
