Happy Monday Everyone!
Hope everyone has had an ok day!
Right enough small talk i'm too excited!
As I mentioned yesterday I've come up with an idea, it might be a success it might not be!
I have set myself a little challenge...basically I wanted something fun to do to get me back in the swing of card making after my lull after Christmas.
So here it is... I have picked ten things out of craft corner and challenged myself to make ten cards using just these products. I have allowed myself the basics such as card bases, kraft card, glue, tools but the rest is limited. Let me show you what I have to work with, as well as limited supplies I also set myself a colour scheme - I'm still not convinced this was a good idea. (apologises for the bad photos, it was awfully dark here yesterday)
Ok so here we have it:
- Cardstock - Ocean Tide, Harvest Gold, Spring Moss and Aqua Mist.
- Paper Stack - In Bloom
- Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch from The Glitter Pot
- A selection of buttons and rhinestones
- Circle Tag Die number 4
- Thank you stamp - one small one large
- Tag its number 5
- Flower Fusion Stamps number 5
- Ribbon and Twine from Ribbon Girl
- Banner Die
Over the next 10 days I will be sharing with you ten different cards I have made using this selection! I have to admit some I like, some I love and some I am not so keen on but thats why I wanted to do this, stretch my creative imagination.
Ok so now the formalities are out of the way, lets get straight on to the first card.
Card Number 1 - A Banner Thank you
I made this card by cutting banners using two shades of the cardstock and two colours of the In Bloom paper. Keeping the card simple I used a plain white card base and added the banners in a stacking formation - cutting off any excess of the end. I made sure I left a small gap in between each one so that when I stamped the large sentiment it wasn't all on a block of colour. I did consider adding some ribbon or twine but I didn't want to overload it.
So there we have it - 1 of 10.
What do you think?
I will be picking a random winner at the end of the ten days - anyone that leaves me a comment will be in with a chance. Prize picture to come shortly!
Thats it from me tonight - Take Care!
