A beautiful sunny day today in Essex. I made this card yesterday but run out of time to enter the Mojo Monday challenge. I have an hour before my friend comes for lunch, so need to type quickly!
I decided to make a valentines card for this challenge, but once I finished I think it could be used as a Birthday or Thank You card also.
I used the Soft Sky paper from the subtle colour collection.
I used By The Tide stamp set for this card. It's from the main catalogue and I have just received it, so it's new to me. I had to have a stamp set which involved the sea as I live so close to the beach!
I love Retro Sketch and this was the first card challenge site I ever entered. I had to think about this sketch for a couple of days before I could come up with a design I was pleased with. Sometimes ideas just come and other times .......
I'm really pleased with the colour combination on this card. I used Coaster Board for the lobster, I really like the board it stands out with out having to use dimensionals , so it's easier for posting.
A fresh cold morning today. I had the chance to spend some time in my craft room this morning so grabbed it. I loved the colours used in the Color Throwdown so made a quick card. I used the Botanical Gardens stamp set and dies.
Leaving it to the last minute but decided to join in with Retro Sketch this week.
Could not get going this morning and it took four or five goes to get a card I was happy with. Does that happen to anybody else. I used one of the new Sale a bration stamp sets. Spend £45 at Stampin Up and choose a free product. The little chick is really cute.
I punched a hole in the layer and stamped different birthday words behind.
Card number two of the day, on a roll. I used three different stamp sets with this card. Awesomely Artistic, Timeless Textures and (What I Love) a stamp set from Sale a bration , a freebie you can get when you spend £45 or over.
I used the wood texture and splatter stamp from Timeless Textures, this is a great set which I know
I'm going to use a lot.
It's a horrible wet day here in Essex, cheered myself up by spending some time in my craft room. I've joined in with the Mojo Monday challenge.
I started by making a mask with torn paper to stamp my leaves, then I stuck my ribbon and circle down. The hello sentiment was tricky to stick but I'm pleased with the result. The die cut leaves finished the card.
