While I was sourcing stuff for the wedding … I found a site that had Sizzix alphabet die sets on sale for $15 each! Needless to say … I couldn’t resist! The postage was a bit of a killer … but still a bargain … so my self discipline flew out the window and I bought 2!!! Sheree’s fiance (Murray) had a birthday recently … so I tried them out for the first time!
You can also see another recent buy … the star embossing folder. I have bought a few goodies from different suppliers (new discoveries) … so am losing track of what came from where! But … I am enjoying having a few new options for my Big Shot! I pulled out some of my metallic bronze cardstock that I haven’t used in ages and glued it on top of the Bashful Blue card. Then I ran this through the Big Shot with the embossing folder. I added some Crystal Effects to the letters … for a bit of pizzazz!
This is one of those photos that was hard to get the colour balance right. On the original photos the blue actually looked white … so I had to fiddle a bit to get some bluish tinge into the picture. It is still not quite right … but it was the best I could do! (There is no white cardstock on this card.)
The sketch was a past Mojo Monday sketch … and worked really well for this MALE card! Obviously I am too late to enter … but that’s fine! It is so good to have a starting point when you are a little lacking in Mojo!
Sorry … the formatting isn’t working in WordPress this morning … so this post is a little scrappy! Hopefully I will pop back later and be able to fix it up!???? — Added later: Is anyone else having trouble with formatting their posts in WordPress? I can’t get anything to work (ie. paragraphs, italics, etc).
Off to the school hall opening today … and plenty of bookwork to keep me busy! See you all again soon!
