Hello girls, hope you're doing fine :)
We have just started packing up for the trip! ...and I let out a huge sigh of relief earlier today, for I'm done with my 6 weeks' worth projects... Whew! Let me tell you, the pressure was there with me all the time, that I won't make it. Now I can hopefully relax a bit this evening (as much as one can relax in the middle of pre-journey rush), and perhaps even catch up on a few of my favourite challenges. Again... wheeeew! haha
Anyhoo, I'm here for a reason, and obviously it is my good ole' card making stuff *wink*
This week marks my last challenge with The Pink Elephant as a Guest Designer (TPE68). The theme is orange, and we were asked to use it as a focal point. We also had a pleasure to work with some adorable images from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
Now, I must admit that my sample is far from meeting my standards or expectations... there are times, unfortunately, that I just can't pull out a decent card, and that was just the said moment. In any other circumstances I'd give it another go later, but I didn't quite have a chance this time...
Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: digital; image: Digital Delights by Louby Loo; ink: various from Versa Color, ColorBox; ribbon: Craft Affair; glitter: Reeves; dimensional medium: Glossy Accents by Ranger; sentiment sticker: SRM Stickers; brown marker; other: button, twine
It's also time for my weekly project for Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I'm continuing with a vintage look... I saw a beautiful card in one of the card making magazines a while ago, that was using organza ribbon. I had a light bulb moment, realizing how nicely organza coordinates with the shabby style. You can find this gorgeous Aqua Blue organza right here in the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. I'm also using one of the beautiful White Pearl Vintage Brads (available here), to embellish my bow. I backed it with three off-white paper flowers, that I sponged with ink.
The frame is made from chipboard, that I glittered with some chunky silver glitter. Bling goes so well with vintage, doesn't it? Because of the frame, I'm entering my card into FTTC67.
Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: October Afternoon, American Crafts, page from an old book; vintage butterfly image; ink: Ranger Distress Ink (Pumice Stone); ribbon: Aqua Blue Organza; glitter: Celebrations of Australia; White Pearl Vintage Brad; chipboard frame: Collections; letter stickers: Carolee's Creations; pearls: Kaisercraft; other: paper flowers, paper doily
Thanks for visiting, as always! Now I'm off to relax :D
