Meanwhile, my first stop on a Saturday morning is Less is More where the challenge is to make a one layer card using hearts. My biggest problem with that was deciding which hearts to use but in the end those new sets were calling, so here's a sneaky peek for you:
Banners are all the rage at the moment, so I thought I'd stamp a string of bunting across my card! I scored a line first to ground the sentiment and to enable me to line up my flags accurately.
These banners and hearts are from a sweet little set in the new seasonal catalogue called Language of Love. I love the simple style of them. I punched a little heart using my Owl punch to embellish the pennant-shaped banner and added a gem to it.
The scallop comes from one of this year's gorgeous sale-a-bration sets, Petal Parade (you'll be able to get hold of this one for free during the promotion!)
I adore the sentiment with its trendy font! It comes from a wonderful upcoming new set called geometrical. As well as two more fabulous sentiments, it contains an array of geometrical shapes which I know will be so useful in the Crafting Square Metre (maybe almost as useful as Gorgeous Grunge - who knows?!!)
I must apologise for this rather badly made card which was made while I was figuring out my design; I've included it to show you that the sentiment usually says 'Love you so'. A stamp-a-majig and markers makes it easy to tweak sentiments so that they say what you want or fit your project.
I'll also be linking the top card up with One Layer Wednesday, which has had a revamp for the new year and is much more user-friendly! It's now called One Layer Simplicity - do pop over and have a look.
Here's what you'll need to make the top card
Stamps: Language of Love,
Ink: Primrose Petals, Cherry Cobbler, Raspberry Ripple, stazon black
Card stock: Very Vanilla, scrap of Primrose Petals (for the heart embellishment)
Other: Markers, Owl punch, Simply Scored, Basic rhinestones, stamp-a-majig
You can order from my online shop any time, day or night,
but if you have any queries, or prefer to speak to me, I'm always happy to help.
A casual "There are freshly cooked sausages here if you'd like some" yelled up the stairs brings a pair of boys thundering down in seconds! There wasn't much left of this little pile after a minute or two let me tell you. Are they boys or wolves?!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you very soon.
