Before you read on, I feel I must issue you with a warning. You may want to put your sunglasses on or turn the colour contrast down on your screens.
I needed to make two birthday cards for two dear friends. The day I went to do them it was a particularly grey and driecht kinda day and so my hand kinda veered towards the brighter colours in my ink tin. I also got carried away with how many Snippets of white card that I got out of the box too as I was trying to gather smaller sized pieces rather than chop into a larger one.
Here is Sian's card........
And here is Aunty Val's card........(she isn't really my Aunty but I called her that when I first started working here and it kinda stuck!) The white you can see around the card is the envelopes. Darn it! I should have moved them out of the way!
And then as I made too many panels I made some individual ones for Ron......later Ron!
The stamp is Hero Arts which I embossed with Versamark and clear embossing powder. I inked the panels with Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn (bought as a result of trying to prove to Hubby that my paypal account from ebay does not work on my Blackberry phone! As you can see I was right! Thank goodness I chose a colour I didn't already have!) and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks. Some Bakers twine from Papermania and ......Yep my Stampin Up (green) which I am very possessive over, and some sticky sparklies. Out came the corner chomperer to alter ther corners too. The two smaller cards are cut to go into envelopes out of my box and are tent style. Liking this style a lot!
As all the inkied panels are from the Snippets box I shall take this over to the Snippets Playground. Better put the sou'wester on as it is pouring it down here right now, having had blue sky this morning! I am also joining this up with Addicted to Stamps as they are looking for CAS this week. For me this is VERY CAS!! EDIT: I have also been pointed to Stamplorations Challenge so I am joining in there too! This is a new challenge for me and having had a peek, they have some great challenges. I have popped it on my sidebar if you wish to pop over.
Keep warm everybody and thank for calling by.
