How's everything going with you? I have gone back to work this week and have been having a bit of a difficult time getting back into the swing of it, to be honest. And I've only been there for about 5 months, so there are still little bits and pieces which I am learning. They chuck them at me at the oddest times, just in case I feel like getting complacent :)
I have done a couple of things I want to share with you all - a complete CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) from the most recent Take Ten magazine - the cards on page 69 by Ali Dufty in Devon, UK. This is my take on the design (they are little notecards, rather than full size - I thought they would be nice for a gift set for someone - I might even go all out and make envelopes for them!):
I'm not going to bore you with details. If you absolutely, positively need to know the stamp company or the colours I used, drop me a line - I will be happy to let you know if I can.
The other thing I have been working on is using the DTP backgrounds I did up (mentioned a couple of posts ago). This is another one which came together pretty easily:
Details are as follows (I had them all written out, but the recipe has gone missing, so this is from memory):
Cardstock: SU! Taken with Teal and Pink Pirouette
Flowers: Mostly Prima
Brads: From personal stash
Inks: Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist in Juneberry Wine and Sapphire; SU! reinkers in Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight; Stazon in Teal Blue (dragonflies and "specks" on teal card) and Midnight Blue (sentiment).
Stamps: Dragonfly (unknown), Big (Papercraft J7000.02 - Rebekka Erickson Signature Series) and Dots (Stamps by Judith AAA-04)
I am hoping that tomorrow is very busy, creatively. I have a couple of images coloured up (and their recipes sitting in front of me), which need making into cards, so hopefully, I'll have a lot to brag about tomorrow night. AND, we're being told it will be rainy, with the chance of a thunderstorm. Which is the perfect excuse to close the door to my craft room, ramp up the volume on my iPod and get busy!
Until then, happy crafting!
