Good morning my crafty chums. Hope everyone is hunkydory (or Crafters Companion or Creata..........I've had my diversity training LOL!!!)
Firstly, sorry for not posting yesterday morning. I should have scheduled the previous night for yesterday but real life caused a bloggus interruptus.
Next, hello to Lydia and Elaine. Thank you for your kind comments and for having a look at my doodahs. Hope you will pop by again soon.
I was really surprised at how well my last card was received, only as it was just an experiment. I do love that stamp and have other cards, I will show at some point, using it.
Now, I'm hoping John hasn't had a dream about navy and yellow or people will begin to talk LOL!!! I know it's hard to imagine but the yellow is a lot brighter in real life. I had a right game getting it to show as yellow as photographing it on a yellow background made the whole lot look cream and navy. I kinda got there in the end but I dare say you are all probably relieved that it isn't too vibrant on screen.
Quite any easy one for cutting, just a bit of a tricksy glue fest.
Base card is a 6x6 navy card. I cut four of the corner die from the SB Botanical Swirls and Accents set and one of the 2nd smallest of the SB Decorative Labels One out of bright yellow card. Also cut another label out of the navy card.
I inked through the corner die with navy ink but on the yellow, it looks more teal. I stuck the corners together along the edges with double sided tape as I find it easier to line them up straight that way, rather than sticking them separately to the base card.
I then applied dabs of glue all over the swirly bits and stuck the whole ensemble to the base card.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on the yellow label (in navy, though it looks black on the photo) and layered that onto the navy label at the opposite angle. Then stuck with foam pads onto the centre of the base card.
Well, that's me for today. Hope you are all enjoying this glorious weather, wherever you may be.
Thanks again for paddling in the duck pond.............hopefully, its been a refreshing experience!!!
