This kind of card really attracts me - an image stamped in a corner and acres of white space to draw the eye to it. Come and have a closer look:
Pear Pizzazz ink was sponged through the template, then the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree stamped over the top in Old Olive. I really like how textured it makes the tree! After adding the tree trunk from Trendy Trees, I held some torn paper over the tip of the trunk and sponged Bashful Blue ink over it, creating the suggestion of a snowy slope. The Merry Christmas sentiment from Petite Pairs was just the right size for my scene and I liked the way the point of the tree fitted into the space created by the two words. The rhinestone on top of the tree emphasises the triangular shape of the stamped elements.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Trendy Trees, Petite Pairs
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Pennant punch, Basic rhinestones, stamp-a-majig
It's the weekend again and I've just remembered - I didn't tell you about the handmade and vintage fair at Olney I visited with my lovely friend Caroline last weekend. Olney is such a beautiful town with interesting architecture and gorgeous little boutiques and one-of-a-kind shops. We browsed those - along with this interesting-looking lady on the right... it must be so difficult getting matching footwear when you have feet like hers!
Etsy and Folksy stores for beautiful gift ideas and prepare to be wowed!
There's a different kind of fair coming to Buckingham this weekend - one with big dippers and dodgems! Oh dear...
Hope you have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon,
