Phew! What a shock to the system it is when we have to go back to school and work! That pesky alarm clock wasn't welcome this morning when it went off at 7am I can tell you! I really am a girl who needs her sleep!!
Anyway, enough waffle from me. I, like everyone else in the blogging world I think, was very excited to see Katharina's Guest Designer call on the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog last week! I'm sure the competition will be very fierce but you've got to give it a go me thinks....... and anyway, the sketch was so much fun to work with. What great timing with all the scrumptious new Springtime stamps just released too!
For my card I flipped the sketch sideways. I remember seeing something recently, it may have been in a magazine, where the image on a card was set in front of a backing paper scene. I've been wanting to have a go at this and Basic Grey papers are perfect as quite a few of them are a scene in themselves. I wanted to sit the beautiful Willow on a branch but I don't have any tree or branch stamps, so I drew one myself...... yes I really did draw it!! Maybe I'm not quite as lousy at sketching as I thought, hee hee! I was also able to play with my new Woodware flower punch, I bought it in two different sizes at the weekend but only used the smaller one for this card.
Materials: Image - Whiff of Joy Sentiment - Aud's Designs Border - Tapestry Peg Stamps Papers - Basic Grey Urban Prairie Punch - Woodware and Martha Stewart Die - Sizzix Leaves Colouring - ProMarkers Embellishments - Raffia Ribbon from my stash
You may notice that my Tapestry peg stamps came out to play again..... told you I'd be using them again!!
I'm off to cook tea now; a Thai green curry stir fry.... YUM!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
