Hi, lovely people!
I'd like to thank you for all your sweet comments recently! It is not easy to adjust to a full-time job, leaving the babies at home, but coming home to such sweet comments makes things so much better :) I will be visiting shortly myself... before I do though I have two last minute cards that I've been wanting to show you since the weekend, but couldn't. Why, you ask... it's so dark when I get up and I come home in a dark again... I simply cannot seem to take a decent photo! Time to get or make a light box! Well, I took pics this morning, they are not as light and bright as I'd like, but they will give you an idea of what the cards look like... I say CARDS, because I have two to show you. I promised, right?! ;) I will do it separate posts though so I can enter them into a challenge I made them for...
These cards were made with the Craft Stamper Challenge in mind. The design was created using a border stamp by Recollections and my Memento Inks. Let me tell you a little bit about my card no 1...
The entire design is created using one border stamp and two inks. One in an espresso colour and one in pear tart, both are Memento inks. First, I masked of my tree area and stamped with the espresso ink. I kept the other two pieces of my posted note so once my background was done I masked off the background to stamp my tree in the pear tart colour, lining up the stamp pattern as thoroughly as possible. I finished the card of with a little tab for my sentiment and heaps of my diamond stickles to give a real festive feel! :)
I will tell you about the other card very shortly... keep an eye out on my next post! ;)
