I've made a couple of cards today. I also made some last night and sent them off today to 3 people 'just because'. That felt really nice to do. I had forgotten how nice it is to send written communication instead of electronic!
I can't recall if I have already shared this one, but I just wanted to tell you how much I am loving this colour combination - chocolate chip, rose red, old olive and so saffron. I used the Floral Background stamp, Mixed Bouquet and Simply Said image stamps and the sentiment stamp is from the Sincere Salutations (such a versatile set of 8 sentiments for a great price!). Then a little chocolate ribbon and antique copper hodgepodge hardware and we're done!
This one I whipped up tonight. I wanted a sample using the vanilla pigment ink pad on dark cardstock. It's so yummy! So much nicer than white with the earthy colours that I love, and I am really happy with the image quality on the dark brown. For this card I have used Bravo Burgundy, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Confetti Cream cardstock. I have stamped the Floral Background on the burgundy with Chocolate Chip ink and then used rose red ink to do the heart (from the Simply Said set which I am hoping will make the new catalogue), with Bravo Burgundy around the outside (two step stamping technique). Lined it up perfectly with the trusty Stampamajig. Then a bit of sewing and cream organdy ribbon.
Finally this fun card for a friends birthday (hope she doesn't read my blog before she gets the card!). I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the large flower and was very excited when I realised that the Figure of Speech sentiment stamps fit perfectly inside the flower! I stamped the image in black and then coloured with a marker. I also pierced around the flower image to highlight it. The sentiment is from Simple Sayings II. I love how this turned out and can see myself making lots more of these as the Figure of Speech set has 8 different themed salutations!
With the exception of Simply Said all of these sets and accessories are currently available. If you are interested in any of them, I am offering a special between now and March 31st.
