A few cards...
Tuesday, January 3, 2012
I finally finished the big craft room clear out today! Boy did it take longer than expected! Sorting the scrap box was a bit of a nightmare. The room feels so much bigger and lighter now though, ready for the new year!! I haven't actually made any new cards yet but I can share some of my Dirty Dozen Splitcoaststampers cards from September. I love this first one with stamped gingham paper frill, I used the Gingham & Co stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps and Memento Rose Bud Ink. The label is from Afternoon Tea also Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped twice, once in black and once in VersaMagic Tea Leaves. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
A little bit of patchwork paper piecing using papers from Lost and Found Two Sunshine from My Mind's Eye and Random from Crate Paper. The label I stamped using Very Vintage Labels No.4 from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I love the bit of black teamed with this one.
Lots of lovely texture in this one with some corrugated card layered with a label stamped using Holiday Labels No.14 using VersaMagic Sage ink. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The leaves I stamped using the polka dots from Gingham and Co. and then stamped using the leaves from Roses in Bloom. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
And finally a shaped card (template is available in the Fan Club area of Splitcoaststampers). I had an image of a nice comfy chair in my mind so I Googled some photos of chairs and drew up a template from those. I had fun paper piecing this and inking the edges to give depth. I emphasized the 3D effect with some colored pencils. The sentiment I printed from the computer and cut out a little pillow shape. A fun card! : ) I'll be back on Thursday with my CASE Study Challenge card. Oh and I might have a little announcement on Friday! Have a great week! : )
