So here I am going nude again so to speak, lol! What I mean is I've made another card leaving quite a bit of white showing and I'm pleased with how it turned out! The weirdest things inspire you sometimes, don't they? Every afternoon, when I've picked up the kids from school, I stop at some lights and stare into the window of a lovely little delicatessan shop. As well as a range of food and drinks, they also sell things for the home and in the window I've seen a beautiful metal heart with leaves wound around it. So my mind's been wondering as it does and the idea for the leafy heart on my card was born yesterday! I think you could do something similar with lots of other shapes too, so I might rework this idea in the future.
I made my card for the brand new Simon Says Challenge run by Simon Says Stamp - an online company in The States which I think many of you will be familiar with. The brief this week is to make a card using green and yellow, which is a winning combination for Spring in my book. I hope you can visit the challenge and you're sure to see some wonderful creations by the Design Team. All they ask is that you use a stamp from one of the ranges they sell. Now I know they sell Magnolias but I realised after I made my card that they probably don't stock this Tilda because she's from the Stampclub set. Oh well, I'm sure it'll be okay as she still belongs to Magnolia! I must add that I pinched an idea from the lovely Judy after seeing her card for Colour Create this week - adding the liquid pearl dots to Tilda's dress!
Materials: Image - Magnolia (+ butterflies) Sentiment - Computer generated Floral Stamp - Daisy & Dandelion Set Dies - Spellbinders Nestie Hearts, Sizzix Leaves Punch - Woodware Flower Colouring - ProMarkers Accents - Stickles Glitter Glue, Liquid Pearls, White Gel Pen and Black Fineliner
One other thing before I go, I thought I'd just share my news with you....... I've been picked to join the Design Team over at Creative Inspirations! Woohoo, I'm so delighted to be joining such a talented bunch of girls and can't wait to get started on my first card. Hopefully you'll be able to join in and make this challenge successful!
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!!
