Hi guys! I cannot believe how quick the time has flown past since Christmas and also that this is my first post for 2011!! Oops!! Have you missed me????
To make up for being absent for so long this is going to be quite a long post so I hope you are comfortable! I'm afraid that I never did get around to loading up all those Christmas cards that I made last year so I have saved them and will load them up later on this year once we all start thinking about Christmas again.
'Sisters' stamp by Belles'n'Whistles. When I see this stamp it reminds me of stories that Mum has told me about her and her big sister so I thought it quite appropriate! The card itself is quite large at 20x20cm so I was able to fit quite a bit onto it! The pretty background paper was from the Kioshi collection by Basic Grey. The wording stamps are from my Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet apart from the letters spelling out 'MUM' which came from a clear Hero Arts stamp sheet. The lovely delicate flourish stamp that I've used around the main card and the Sisters panel is one of my favourite flourish stamps of all time by Penny Black called Scrolling Along.
Garden Trellis and Doily Lace Trim along with some Prima flowers from the E Line range, some pearl sprays from my own stash, punched out daisies, self-adhesive pearls, brads and spacers.
Labels Nine Nestabilities dies for my centre panels.
Floral Vine to provide some decoration along with some punched out squares, self-adhesive pearls and nailheads and of course lots of glitter glue!
Tea Time stamp into the Labels Nine die-cut and watercoloured the image using Distress inkpads. Then I popped the corresponding Nestabilities back over the die cut and used my blending tool along with a Bundled Sage Distress inkpad to softly ink around the edges of the die cut.
Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet.
I'd like to enter this card into the current Belles 'n' Whistles challenge Anything But Winter.
So are you still with me? I did warn you that it was going to be a loooooooong post!! I did make a box for this card to go in which I decorated too but I never got around to taking a photo of it.
I hope you liked this card - Mum did! I'll try and do another post soon!! Meanwhile a Happy New Year to you all.
