I'm sorry again for not posting but my little one is going through a hard time at the moment, I can't go into details, but he's having a really tough couple of weeks, which in turn means I'm not getting any sleep and I'm just trying to get through the day at the moment in one piece.
Your hugs would be nice if you have the time.
Sorry everyone for not posting for such a long time. My son was on a week's break from school and DH had the week off too and we were really busy. We went to Cornwall for 4 days and just got back. It was a lovely break and now I just need to get back into cardmaking, lol. I have forgotten where my craft room is. This is the longest I have ever gone without making a card apart from our main summer holiday.
DH and DS go back to school/work tomorrow, so woohoo, get my life back! :)
Thank you for wondering where I was Jenn, that is so sweet.
Hugs and hope you are all well.
Look at this wonderful card that I received from Allison Fillo this week, how beautiful and unusual is it. I absolutely love it, thank you Allison. I wonder if all Allisons are so talented, lol. You can find her wonderful blog here http://www.stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/
. I love her blog and I was so blown away to receive this card, so thank you, thank you, thank you Allison.
This card was for today's color challenge on Splitcoast. It uses Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery and Old Olive. My favorite color combination is Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive and so it was really good to try Violet instead. It is a while since I used this color and I forgot how much I love it. It's so pretty and I think it works really well with gold, so there is lots of gold embossing on this card, lol.
Details of the card
Sets - Artfully Asian, Canvas
cardstock - white watercolor, Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
inks - versamark, Vintage Violet, Old Olive and Certainly Celery reinkers
accessories - aquapainter, ribbon, brads, eyelet, gold embossing powder, ticket punch
I have never tried this colorway before, it is Cool Caribbean, Tempting Turquoise and Taken With Teal with one of my favorite sets, Bodacious Bouquet.
It's really hard to see, but I used Taken with Teal craft ink on the background and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder, it is soooo sparkly in real life.
I'm so sad about Cool Caribbean retiring, I love that color. :)
I love VSN on Splitcoast, but this weekend I only had time to make 4 cards, this was one of them.
You had to make a card with quilling. I used to teach quilling a lot a while ago and I got so fed up of it, I could never do any quilling. But I've had a break and I really enjoyed making this card, it only took me about 30 minutes all in.
So, I am determined to make more non-stamped cards, like quilling or teabag folding, but I don find myself going through stages. This stage is obviously scallops and cuttlebugging lol.
The scallops were actually made with my cricut and not scallop punches.
Details of card
sets used - Papertrey Green Thumb
cardstock - Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, white
inks - lovely lilac
accessories - cuttlebug, cricut, ribbon, quilling tool and papers, slit punch
