Good afternoon, and welcome! I'm still 3 followers away from Goal, so Candy is in countdown mode & I'm trying to watch closely for the 200th follower to show up in the followers' list.
I'm working on some cards that are in various stages of completion. Tomorrow my day will start with a mammogram & bone density test..early. As I've told you - I don't DO early! And you know how much fun it is to get a mammogram...oh yeah!
So here's the card for today:
- Image is a Hampton Art wood block stamp, using Memento Paris Dusk on white paper (snippet). Cardinals colored with copics. Partial second stamping to get the cardinals, colored again, punched with a small circle punch and popped up for emphasis. I saw this done on another card, but don't remember where it was, so I'll have to give credit to "unknown". Used DI Chipped Sapphire on the outer edges to create light more towards the center & the birds.
- Matted with Red, then Navy blue papers, which were free-hand cut to fit the image shape.
- Sizzix Flourish EF embossing on card base.
Sentiment from a Flourishes Wreaths of All Seasons clear set, using Paris Dusk, punched with an oval punch on white snippet.
- American Crafts glitter ribbon.
That's it! This was an easy one to make, other than trying to get the ink distributed evenly on the stamp for a good sharp image. I finally really rubbed the pad over the stamp very hard rather than just 'pat-pat', and then used the Bonnie's Best stamp press I have. This resulted in a much better image.
A couple of snippets used here, so that's my ticket to jump over to the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground, Week 107. I'm sure you probably have a lot of scraps & bits (aka snippets!) so why not whip up a card & join in. There's been tales of fireworks, poor Parsnip getting a fish bowl on his little head, and gosh, sounds exciting. Check it out! There's a nifty prize available too.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope whatever you are working on today is going great & that you have a pleasant afternoon in store. Come again when you have time, and as always - thanks for joining me. Hugs.
