There's been quite a few posts lately (crazily busy time, with two releases in full swing and much more!), so please scroll down if don't want to miss a thing! Thank you :)
Call me crazy. I'm leaving for the Spellbinders retreat tomorrow, and have heaps to do still, before I'm taken to the airport. I'm in a high state of panic, I'm not even packed yet, lol!
Yet, last night, after (finally) clearing out all my DT assignments for the time off, I decided to make a couple of leisurely cards, and wind off from a stressful day. Also because I sooo didn't want to miss some fantastic challenges. And before I get into the full swing of preparations, I would like to share them.
Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Kraft, Sweet Blush), white, turquoise scrap; paper: Echo Park Paper; stamps: Glitz Design (frame), The Craft's Meow (sentiment); ink: Versa Magic (Sand Beige), Memento (Rose Red); MFT Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics; Martha Stewart butterfly punch; Kaisercraft rose trim; grosgrain ribbon; gems: AnnaBelle Stamps Sprinkles; sewing machine; felt: craft supply
This one was made for the Rosettes Color Trends Challenge, with these most gorgeous colours below... I'm not big on rosettes, but I decided to pull out my neglected Die-Namics die. I find it hard to roll that rose from cardstock, but it's easy enough with felt. By the way, the colour of the felt is a bit off here, it's not red in real life, only a bit more peachy shade of pink.
I paired the challenge with the VLVMar2012 Week 1 sketch.
And one more...
Supplies: cardstock: SU! (Soft Suede); paper/label: Prima; stamp: Waltzingmouse Stamps (sentiment); ink: Versa Magic (Pink Grapefruit); transparency: Glitz Design; roses: Prima; grosgrain ribbon: PTI; gems: AnnaBelle Stamps Sprinkles; corner rounder: EK Success
Another delightful inspiration behind this card - Tuesday Trigger: Simple Elegance. Happy sigh...
Paired with Retro Sketches #3.
Wish me luck with everything! You may not hear from me 'personally' for a while, although I'm tempted to give a couple more a go tonight, depending on the progress :)
All in all, I won't keep you bored - I've got eight posts scheduled for the next week. As I said - it's an unusually busy time! Cheers,
