I have not got into the Pinterest ‘fad’ yet … but would love to … if only I had more time. But … I do from time to time follow a link someone puts on their blog … or a link back to one of my cards … and have a little browse. I haven’t managed to set up or store anything I find … so this latest card is a CASE without a name! Yes! I am usually so pedantic about recognising an original designer … but sadly this time I cannot for the life of me … remember where I found this card! My apologies! If anyone is able to help with this puzzle … please let me know so I can add the credits here!
Added: Mon 25th Jun … I think it was Pinterest that was the source of this card idea … but … thanks to Donna Z … I have found the original creator of this beauty! It was Petronela Hardy!! What a star! Thanks Petronela for the inspiration and the challenge … and for the video tutorial that can be found HERE -> KEEP STAMPING. I am off to watch the video … to see if Petronela shares her measurements. It would have been handy to have seen this before I fiddled around for an hour or so trying to get it right! 😉 😀 Thanks, Donna, too … for helping me find this link!
Now … this card looks easier than it is to make! I really struggled with the right sizing for the dress … and even though I have added some measurements to my recipe (& lots of details) … I can’t guarantee that they are perfect. (I was going from memory … when I prepared the recipe!) But … it was quite satisfying to wrestle for a little while and finally it came together! This is another card I made at Leonie’s stamping weekend. Understandably, the other girls decided not to try this one! 🙄 I must admit … I am tickled with the outcome!
Added more: Make sure you watch Petronela’s blog video! I can’t believe how simple it is! I imagined when I looked at the card … that the width at the top was different to the width at the bottom … so I made it so much harder for myself! It is actually 9cm wide at top and bottom. Petronela has including the scoring measurements … so … I do hope you have a go … because she does make it look soooooooo easy!!!
Well … it is school holidays now for Sandy … although Sheree has another week “pupil free”. The public school hols also start at the end of next week. It is always lovely having this bonus week in the middle of winter! I imagine we might be quite busy ‘organising stuff’ … so hopefully Sandy will be content to just chill out during these hols! It will be good to have Sheree home so we can start planning finer details for the engagement party & wedding. We are off tomorrow to watch Gav take his V8 dune buggy ride … up at ‘woop woop’. (That means up at some obscure place miles from here!) The kids gave him this ride for his 50th b’day … and it has taken a little time to organise a suitable date! We have to be up at 5am … to leave in time! I know where I would rather be! (Blogging with you … or doing some stamping!) But … I go … because he wants me to share in this experience! Experience??? I can only imagine dirt … more dirt … cold & windy & perhaps even rainy … and a glimpse of him inside a dust cloud as he scoots past every few minutes or so! 🙄 But … I will go! Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Hugs xxx
