Have a wonderful day

Hello again. I hope you are well. I have had some new deliveries this week, and there is more to come, but some of that is from Simon says Stamp – so I’ve no idea when that will arrive. It takes 2-3 weeks for my sister to get her stuff and she lives in Canada………..I’ll let you know.

I have made a card I would like to share based on the colour scheme from Color Throwdown:

This stamp set is one which arrived yesterday from Crafters Companion, and when I saw it for sale on the website – it kinda just jumped into my basket. I particularly like that you can also die cut the whole image – or either side of it – which is what I did here.

I took me a little time to figure out which part to cut, which part to place under my cutting plates – it looks so much easier when someone else does it!

I coloured the image with yellow and green Copics, die cut one side of it, then stamped a sentiment from a Uniko stamp set.

The black card was embossed using the fabulous We R Memory keepers next level embossing folder, and the whole thing put together as you see.

I thought the white was a little too – well – white, so I added a few black Nuvo drops.

I even managed to get outside and take the photo – even though it’s a little grey and dull. Here is the embossing a little closer:

I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:

Hi there. I have a card here for the current challenge at Daring Cardmakers, and their inspiration picture. The challenge is to choose three elements.

I chose the basket effect, flowers, and glass containers – the blue glass to also match the Bombay Sapphire bottle……love that drink!

The stamp set is from Altenew – Garden Silhouette – as I wanted solid flowers, which didn’t require any layering. I did make it a little more difficult for myself, as I stamped the images in two colours, masking off the flower to stamp the stem and leaves in green, and masking the stem to stamp the colours of the flowers. I don’t know why I bothered, really, as I covered the stems anyway…….behind the glass…..oh well. Lesson learned.

The glass containers were stamped off, then stamped again as the original colour would have been too bright for my taste.

These embossing folders really do give a fabulous 3D effect, don’t you think?

I chose a smaller sentiment in the corner, as opposed to a larger one so it didn’t detract from the card, but also added a little something extra.

I feel some more crafting and card making coming on for the weekend, and I am not at work all next week…….can’t wait to try my Altenew Artist Markers a little more…
