Feel Better Hugs


Hello again. I managed to find time to craft last night and this morning – still going to spend quite a bit of today crafting I hope – and made this card incorporating a sketch and colours theme, and going for a more feminine feel, without covering the card in flowers.

I took a zigzag stamp from the latest Catherine Pooler Stamp Of Approval, and curved it. I like the way these clear stamps can be manipulated this way, and opens up more ways if utilising them.

I then took a little triangle from the same collection and used the challenge colours to alternate as you see. As I didn’t have the exact colours, I used Watermelon Wonder from Stampin Up, andΒ Over Coffee and Lime Rickey from Catherine Pooler. A lot of the stamp sets from Catherine Pooler include many, many small stamps for in-fills and creating your own patterns. So versatile.

After I had stamped this I had a little laugh at where I had placed my magnets:


I am sure there is another card in there somewhere – a big robot/monster card….hmmmm!

Anyhoo – I then took the image from Altenew Indoor Garden, and die cut with a stitched oval, and added it as you see.

The sentiment I also curved to try and match the banner part – maybe I was slightly off, but rather than binning the whole thing – I stuck with it. I did this partly because I don’t think it is hugely wrong, and doesn’t look too out of place, but also because I am cutting myself some slack here. (see comments below)

These colours work very well together, I think, making a bright but clean and simple card.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

CAS Colours and Sketchescolours and sketch

Watercooler Challengesfeminine

Aud Sentiments for the girls

Now for a little ‘chat’ – I have been watching the most recent You Tube videos from Kristina Werner and have been a little upset for her…..have you seen the latest videos? The first was some hints and tips about to improve your card making. Loved that – great tips. The second was to try to explain and address comments some people have left……..quite a bit of negativity commented on the first video, but I have to say that I wholeheartedly support her and what she and other ‘famous’ members of the crafting community are trying to achieve.

I wouldn’t be anywhere near as challenged, I wouldn’t have anywhere near as much confidence, nor would I have anywhere as near as many ideas and skills without the advice/help/tips and good old ‘give it a go’ attitude that many people have like Kristina.

Thumbs up and support for Kristina and any other crafters like her who put themselves out there for us………..
