Hi there bloggies! 😀
Well … sometimes being stuck at home without a car means I just HAVE TO stamp!!! What a shame!!! 😉 😀 I have another non Chrissy Card for you all today! I have been wanting to try a new technique that I have seen on several blogs and this seemed to fit beautifully with the Paper Players #69 sketch today! With spring randomly giving us some warm days (and some NOT SO WARM) I felt like using some bright colours … & I wanted to ink up my new “Sunny Fun” stamp set. Here is what I came up with …
I am such a sucker for anything gingham … and as soon as I saw this background technique around I just knew I had to get the new Stripes embossing folder and try it out for myself. I can just imagine how sweet this would be for baby cards! The technique is basically just done by brayering ink on the inside of the embossing folder … running it through the Big Shot … inking again … turn the card 90° … and run through the BS again. (You will need to ink again & run in the same direction to add lines for the extra length in this direction.) The whisper white is a little “soft” for repeat Big Shot runs … so I would suggest you run a scrap piece of card behind it each time to prevent the creases from happening! (I will try that next time!) 😀 I wonder … now that I come to post this … if it is a little ‘busy’ … but it is bright and sunny, isn’t it!?
Well … I checked out the DT samples & the gorgeous submissions for this challenge and realise this is nothing like the elegant creations that I saw there! But … I guess I might enter it anyway! 😀 After all … it is the fun of creating … that is important … isn’t it!?
I have had so little time for challenges lately … but with a free day … I thought I would pop by the CAS-ual Fridays Blog … to play along with their latest challenge … and I realised that this card would fit! 😀 (BUT … I am always nervous about the “CAS” part. I never seem to get that balance right???) But … I thought I would have another go! CFC25: Use any medium (markers, pencils, watercolors, blending pens, etc) to add color to your stamped image.
See you all again soon! Hugs xx
