Hopefully I am beginning to change that again and am starting to craqaft and the fact that I am signed up with Stamp with Us for the summer should get me motivated...
So tonights post will be a number of things...
The first the card that I made for the first Stamp With Us challenge where we were tasked with making a card that used the following:
ONE COLOUR CARDSTOCK
STAMPS OF YOUR CHOICE
TWO INK COLOURS
WHITE OR NEUTRAL CARD STOCK
NO OTHER EMBELISHMENTS
YOU CAN USE PUNCHES
SEWING - BUT NOTHING ELSE
here is the card I hope you like it!
I made this card for one of the ladies I work with - she asked me to make the card for her grandad who loves his garden - this is the card I made using clear stamps and my SU! markers building up the colour with each layer and then using an aquapainter to blend the colour and make them softerI hope you like it!I covered this pad for my friend Sam using SU! DSP just too cheer her up as like myself she has not been crafting much and I am hoping this will get her juices flowing - sometimes when I am not in a crafty mood doing something completely different really motivates me and this worked for me this week I love the bright colour and I used the punches to layer up her initial! I haven't given her the pad yet as I am in my PJ's ( so I hope she doesn't see this befiore tomor )
Finally... LOL in a way I have kind of misssed this!
Here is a sneak peak of the shoebox swap I am doing tomorrow I loved preparing this and again I love the colours I have picked The cardstock is from the american catalogue an in colour baja breeze, there is also matching ribbon - LOVE IT...
I hope you like what you see all will be revealed in the next couple of days when I have all the other projects that we are doing I cannot wait - if you live in the Manchester area and would like to do a shoe box swap let me know - I am looking to arrange one in the next few weeks!thanks for looking everyone and it is good to be back - all comments are appreciated!
