Not the best of days weather wise but I hope you're all enjoying your weekend anyway. I'm off to a friend's this afternoon for a chinwag with cake and a brew, so it couldn't be better really!
This week over at Basic Grey the brief is to use 'ice cream' as your inspiration. Think shape, colour, texture - anything that springs to mind really. My ultimate love when it comes to all things ice cream is the knickerbockerglory! My dear Nan (god bless her) used to take me out as a child and treat me to one of these. And when you're small don't they just seem like the biggest thing ever, lol! I always loved all the fruit at the bottom and the layer upon layer of cream and ice cream in between. Hence, I've tried to include layering and fruits on my card. I must give a shout to Mina for the inspiration I got when layering the doily punched edges - she made a fab card a few weeks back doing the very same thing and I thought it looked gorgeous!
Hop over for a peek at what my teamies have come up with this week. The colours and designs are sure to make you drool and, as always, they've all done such an amazing job!
Materials: Image - Hanglar Sentiment - Stampin Up Fruit Stamp - Stampin Up Papers - Basic Grey Bittersweet Colouring - Copics Punch - Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Embellishments - Sticky Pearls from stash Accents - Distress Inks
I'm off to get a shower now, time always seems to run away with me when I'm on here, lol!
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!!
