Three Minute Thursday is back here at Crafting Clare's Paper Moments! Every Thursday, I shall be posting a very fast card that can be made in mere minutes! You'll start to see Christmas card designs appearing here very soon too - perfect for building up a stash ready for the festive season.
There's no festive card today though - it's more autumnal really!
I've used the gorgeous, soft Naturals Ivory card stock for this design - it's wonderful to stamp on and a nice weight for one-layer cards. The tree is from Trendy Trees - a set that I bought before I became a Stampin' Up demonstrator. I remember being so excited about the 2-step design and practising using the stamp-a-majig over and over on a piece of rough paper! I love these stamps just as much today and the stamp-a-majig is a tool I just couldn't be without.
Do you like the effect on the leaves? It's a great technique - I inked the stamp up with More Mustard, tapped it randomly with Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and Old Olive markers, huffed on it to remoisten the ink and stamped the image. The grass is doodled underneath and the image is finished with one of the sentiments from the set.
Supplies needed for today's card:
Stamps: Trend Trees
Ink: Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Markers, stamp-a-majig
Have you seen these young men that walk around with trousers worn so low on the hip it looks as if they're going to fall down?! I find it difficult to resist sneaking up behind them, giving the trousers a sharp tug and running off cackling! Perhaps I should just grow up...
