Welcome to the Basic Grey Challenge on this beautiful, sunny, Spring morning. YAY, I love this week's theme of Paper Piecing as it's one of my fave techniques. The girls have all come up with some incredible cards which really show off the beauty of Basic Grey papers, so do hop over and take a peek. There is also a fab prize on offer this week, in fact I'd quite like to win it myself but unfortunately DT members aren't allowed :o( Oh well, someone will be lucky, but you've got to be in it to win it!!
I didn't start out with the intention of creating something along the 50's kitsch theme but I think that's how my card turned out! The Rubber Romance image reminds me somehow of a pop art picture, do you know what I mean? Anyway, I got to use my ric rac ribbon stamp which always seems to add a nice effect. I paper pierced the present and the girl's skirt with Cupcake papers - these really are bright and fun.
Materials: Image - Rubber Romance Sentiment - Studio G Papers - Basic Grey Cupcake Embossing - Cuttlebug Birthday Folder Colouring - Copics Flowers - Prima Embellishments - Brads and Gems from my stash
Well I have a busy day ahead - hubster is the big 4 0 today! He's working until mid afternoon so me and the kids are decorating the house and fetching his pressies from his mum's house, where they've been hidden away. Tonight we're going out for a curry and then tomorrow we're having a family party. He doesn't like surprises so he knows about the get together, but his pressie is a big surprise.
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!!
