The three Minute masked card

Do you like the title today? Sinster huh?! It had me doubled up shrieking with laughter! Sigh, I do apologise...

Now, let's move swiftly on to something gorgeous - like the ColourQ inspiration palette for this week. Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight do go beautifully with Crumb Cake (Stampin'Up's name for kraft.) I've put them together for my quick Three Minute Thursday card this week and this is what I made:


These stylised blooms from Fabulous Florets are a nod to those rolled flowers in the inspiration photo. Are you wondering how on earth I cut masks in three minutes? The answer of course is that I didn't! I'd cut two masks on a previous occasion and very sensibly stored them inside the stamp case...


... so it was really quick and easy to stamp the flowers and leaves. All it needed was a quick sentiment positioned with my stamp-a-majig - this one is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Other: Stamp-a-majig

Yesterday I took my daughter for the theory section of her driving test. She'd got her papers together but was fretting as we left the house. "Will I need any money?" she asked. "No, it's all paid for, " I reassured her. "And anyway," she said, "I have £2 for an emergency in my pocket." I looked at her and asked: "Are you expecting an emergency in your pocket?!" My clever girl passed her test so it was hats in the air in our family yesterday evening!

I'll be back tomorrow - see you then,

  18. Congratulations on your daughter passing her test well done indeed. Love your card and the beautiful stamping even if I do find it hard to believe that anyone not even you could create such a beauty in such a short space of time even though you do it time and time again. Do you plan them all in your head for hours before you actually make them.....
