HI EVERYONE 🙂
It is very sunny and warm here again today but it is forecasted to turn colder and maybe a snow shower later this week. Guess we have to have winter some time this winter 🙂 things are slowing down some around here today so I have a bit of time to catch my breath. I have a few minutes free before the kids get home from school so I thought I’d try to get a post in. I hope you are all enjoying your days and even getting some crafting in. I have three cards to post today they have been in the works for several days now. I had one finished when I seen Leslie’s post of the ribbon challenge and will post it because it has ribbon on it but not a lot.
Here it is I used the fifth avenue floral stamp set from Stampin Up ,black ink and cardstock and pink passion ink and cardstock pixie pink ink antique brass brads and a piece of self adhesive ribbon with the I love you on it. I put a bit of dazzling details Stampin Up new glitter glue on the hearts of the ribbon.
The next card is for the challenge but the only gold ribbon I have is 1/8 inch orgundy and was way to big for the hearts so I substituted gold cord instead. I used black, real red and white cardstock brushed red and white cardstock with encore gold pigment ink. I used my big shot machine and cut the big heart with the stampin up embosslet (forgot the name) and used my Martha Stewart heart punch for the smaller two I then brushed gold ink on the hearts edges and across the embossed dots on the big heart. I hung the hearts with the gold cord. I added the Amour from Artful Etchings stamp set by stampin up. I’m not entirely thrilled with the way this came out but I do feel good about getting the craft time in and that’s what matters.
The Giraffe card is the one I made for the little boy who is sick from our church.
The last one I put to use Lynn’s Grid technique ( I think that’s what it’s called ) Any way I used low tack painters tape to mask off the card into strips and used different shades of aqua colored ink to make patterned paper and used a roller wheel to put some light images on the lightest colored strip. I sprayed it with my homemade shimmery mist. The base card is a premade Martha Stewart card that has adhesive around the middle which I sprinkled with fine glitter. I had been toying with a small matchbook card and attached it to a piece of pink patterned paper that was on my desk. I then cut out some already glittered flowers and attached them to the matchbook front some with dimension and put it all on the card base. I like the way it turned out Its like 2 cards in one. I havent put sentiments on yet but I will have one ready when I think of one. Ok so here it is.
Ok the last photo is not that good but I’m running out of time and this has taken me longer than I thought. 🙂 Take care and I will watch to see what else gets posted.
Love to you all,
