I’m back! This time with a shimmery, stripey, magical, friendly, monochromatic card …
Yesterday, I had a fantastic Feedly fest and caught up with lots of what everyone’s been doing this week … including this card made by Kristie where she used a hanging word. I was really taken with the idea so I’ve given it a go here. I partially die cut a panel of paper with the ‘you’ (Mama Elephant letters), leaving the letters uncut at the top, and sliced through the remaining positive space at the join with a craft knife so that the word would hang down from the panel. Strips and another ‘you’ were cut from pearlescent card and adhered over the white panel and word. I stamped and silver embossed the sentiment (Technique Tuesday), trimmed the panel to size and popped it up on foam dots on the card base.
The sweet, talented, generous, humourous and thoroughly delightful Darnell is celebrating 500 followers this month … many congratulations, my friend … a perfect indication of how much you’re loved in our wonderful papercrafting community. If you’re not already one of the 500, stop right now and go over to the Playhouse and sign up … you don’t want to miss being a follower for a moment longer! I’ll wait. To celebrate this amazing milestone, Darnell is hosting a fun challenge where we’re invited to join her using NBUS … Never Before Used Schtuff (a Darnellism!). The theme is friendship and all the details are over at the Playhouse … another reason for a visit! My NBUS here is the stamp set … Incredible by Technique Tuesday … I got it and one or two other goodies just as the creative go-slow in my brain started some weeks ago, so until today it hadn’t seen ink.
I’m also playing along with these challenges …
CASology – Shine (silver embossing and pearlescent card)
Muse – Vicki’s Inspirations (see below)
Colour Me! – Monochromatic Coastal Cabana
SSS Monday – Magic (heat embossing, the hanging die cut word … and Darnell!)
Off for a meander around the blogosphere … there may be more later! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
