AEI♥U #9 (DIY Stamped DP), The Card Concept #12 (Nautical), SSS Monday 16-6 (Anything Goes), SSS Wednesday 18-6 (You Gotta Have Friends)

Back with my second card for the day …

AEI♥U 9,  TCC 12, SSSM 16-6, SSSW 19-6I made a DP panel by repeatedly stamping one of the images from Avery Elle’s Bright Days with inks from Versamagic’s Seashore set.  The panel was split and popped up on foam dots, I stamped the AE sentiments in the gap and added a little sea spray (bling!) around it.

I’m playing along with these challenges …

AEI♥U – DIY Stamped DP

The Card Concept – Nautical (Pennants and Seashore Ink Colours – Clean and Graphic)

SSS Monday – Anything Goes

SSS Wednesday – You Gotta Have Friends

ETA:  Seems my timing was out for AEI♥U, Mr Linky had closed the door … oops!

That’s it from me for the weekend … after a card making drought last week (playing catch up in a BIG way!), I’m hoping to have a few more creative evenings this coming one … if I stay on top of Feedly that is!    Wishing you all a wonderful week … thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

Avery Elle AEI♥U (December 2013), Keep It Simple #30 (Anything Goes)

Yes, I know, two posts in one day … must be the New Year!  I’m joining in with Keep It Simple‘s Anything Goes theme again … and I’m playing along for the first time at Avery Elle’s AEI♥U challenge.  I’ve been following the latter in Feedly for ages and finally got my hot little hands on an AE stamp set a short while ago (yay!) … you’ve seen it already here, but until now, that certain je ne sais quoi to fit the challenge brief has eluded me.  Yesterday, though, I came up with this …

Avery Elle Dec 13, KIS 30

I cut a tag, stamped the stripes and sentiment, mounted it on a slightly larger black tag and added some twine.  The flower and leaves were stamped, trimmed out and adhered to the tag with different depth foam dots.  I fixed a strip of black card to a piece of Doodlebug DP (yes, me with DP … yikes!), attached them both to the bottom part of the base card and added the tag, again popped up on foam dots.  It puts me in mind of a little black tie ensemble with just a touch of rebel colour … yes/no?

That’s it from me for now … back to getting creative with the renovation rather than with cards tomorrow!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂
