Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and Thank You to everyone who left me comments over the last year. It is always lovely to get feedback on crafty makes.
We've been doing a far bit of travelling up and down the country over the holiday season so things have been rather hectic here. I've still got to find homes for the new stamps, dies and inks that I had for Christmas! Hubby has proclaimed that the study needs to be decorated....this means relocating my stash and everything else in the room..not sure where it is all going to go or how I will be able to keep the cards coming...here's hoping that I can have the dining room table exclusively for my stash.
I did manage to have another play with the new Wendy Veechi stamps from "Creative Expressions". These stamps have a lovely vintage feel to them so they are perfect for a vintage/shabby chic theme. For my card I have used Spellbinders dies and distress inks (old paper, Victorian velvet and aged mahogany). The flowers were made using hand made paper that I had stamped with the lacy background stamp. The ribbon is seam binding, dyed using Victorian velvet distress stain.
I would like to entre this card into the following challenges:
"Sentimental Sundays - Anything goes, must include a sentiment"
"Truly Madly Crafty - Anything goes"
"Make it Monday - Anything goes"
"Craft Your Passion - Anything goes plus distressing"
"Cup Cake Craftroom - Anything goes"
"Artistic Stamper - Vintage"
