Good morning! It's Three Minute Thursday here today and that means a card whisked up in just a few minutes - just the thing for those of us with a fuller-than-usual schedule towards the end of term. I'll be showing you a super-fast teacher appreciation card next week, but this week I'm still obsessed with French Foliage! Come and have a look:
We all need sympathy cards from time to time and often at very short notice too. I thought these black leaves on a neutral background would work well. I stamped the French Foliage leaves onto a Sahara Sand panel using Basic Black ink and used the droplets image to fill in the gaps with Crumb Cake ink.
The panel is popped up with dimensionals on a Sahara Sand card base and I added a simple sentiment.
The French Foliage stamps are brilliant for stamping randomly like this and you can achieve very different moods depending on the colours you use.
Here it is in a colour combination I love - Pacific Point and Garden Green.
The punchier colours call for a punchier sentiment so I chose this one from the hostess set Afterthoughts, stamped in Basic Black on Sahara Sand card stock and cut out with my curly label punch.
Supplies needed for these cards:
Stamps: French Foliage, (sentiments are from Trendy Trees and Afterthoughts)
Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Garden Green, Not Quite Navy
Card stock: Sahara Sand
Other: Curly label punch, dimensionals
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.
Yesterday, as my youngest son and I were driving home from school, I stopped at a pedestrian crossing to let a lady and her little tot cross the road. The little girl was teeny-tiny and wearing a large, wide-brimmed hat. She looked so sweet toddling along that I squealed and pointed her out to my son. He agreed that she did look cute. "But," he added, "I think she'd look better with a moustache!" Never a dull moment with my boy!
