Hi there, back again with happy birthday card using the great die set from MFT Balloon Numbers. I think this set will become a well used set for me. Scrapbook Boutique have the details on the 'how to' and products used to create too.
I was inspired by the grey and white tones of the inspiration board. I used the Mudra Mendhika stamp set. I wanted something long and swirly to create a border for the corner of the card. I fussy cut around the shape ( while silently praising matching dies!!!) When I added the grey to the card, it looked a little boring so I just scored a few lines to create the pattern and I like the the effect. I used the Distress Ink hickory smoke which softens the card. I had intended to make this a sympathy card, but I was watching the football and my "peace and comfort" stamp either crossed over the "Y" or touched my border!! So I scoured all my stamps for something appropriate and used the add on from the Many Mandalas Stamp Set.
Craft room has had it's first coat of paint and new lights and DH had stepped up with the planning!! He has taped out the desk and shelves and electrical outlets! I'm just so excited!
thank you for popping in and now off to the gorgeous Ann's blog xx
Hi there it is July already and I cannot believe how fast the year has flown !! Just to mess with your heads I have made a Christmas card today..... only 177 days until Christmas (I'll probably have four done by then...)
Once again, I have done a simple design using the MFT Oh Christmas tree stamp sets. I have got the matching dies too ( stay tuned July is Christmas time in my craft room) Scrapbook Boutique have all the details and products used for this card, head on over and join in our Inspiration challenge too.
Speaking of my craft room, First coat went on today and it looks beautiful, clean and fresh. Hubby is starting on building my desk and shelves and I must admit I am blown away with his enthusiasm and input so far.
Update on the renovations...... the sanding has begun and Oh My Goodness, my house is full of dust (even though there is a protective sheet as a barrier!) Hubby is planning on how I can best utilise the space. I am loving how he is getting right into the planning of it all ♥.
I had a massive clean out.... well I procrastinated a lot and after letting my crafty friends sift through, I took the rest to the op shop. They were so appreciative and said it was gold LOL apparently everyone loves crafty stuff!
Anyway today's card is using Concord & 9th background blocks set. I tried a few ways to stamp them in a row and it was becoming very frustrating. I ended up using my MISTI and stamping two rows and then turning the paper upside down! easy peasy. Scrapbook Boutique have the products used and details too! I have made a few using different colours (always good for the stash!)
Holy Moly June ALREADY! Renovations are in full swing and HOPEFULLY I will be able to get back in to my craft room soon. My storage room is painted and looks huge without all my stash in there!!! I will see if I can show a quick little video on the end of this post... ( warning I'm not too tech savvy so we will see how it goes!) I am going to have a massive cull too! The thing is I am so attached to all my goodies, that I hate parting with anything!
Anyway Scrapbook Boutique has all the details and products used for this project. Hope on over and have a look and don't forget to join our Challenge on the 10th
I think I am an imposter....I have actually made a wedding card that is not really due until October!!! I have joined in a few challenges ( this is so not me really) I have had these Mica flakes for a while and I thought they'd be perfect for this card. I wanted to create a window but I thought they would fly everywhere so I used an acetate sheet to make sure it stayed put! Scrapbook Boutique have all the details and products used for this project.
