We went to Perth yesterday morning, John had to go to the Dentist for a filling........he has not had that for years. John dropped me off in town, I had a good mooch round some shops, bought a few things .. as you do.
Steph:- and anyone else who noticed the words "Lidl and Card" yes! Lidl do packs of Card & Paper every now and again. Bigger than A4, good card, great colours and very reasonable for what you get in the pad. I usually buy a couple of the pads of card, take out all the colours I would use and the school gets the others. I don`t really do "orange" or shades of. It is a colour I find very difficult to work with.
When Elaine was here Friday evening we made a few cards using Stippled Blossom Stamps. There were bits and pieces still lying about yesterday. Rather than clear them away I decided to use some of them.
Here is my card for today:-
Base card 5 x 5 approx
White frame cut using SB Classic Square Dies (These and Classic Circles were the first ever Dies I bought)
Tilda Flowergarden Paper for another frame (I love these Pads of Paper/Card) all double sided, very thick 12x12 and beautiful)
StampinUp Stippled Rose Die stamped and cut out, a few added Stickles
SB Foliage Die for the leaves
I used John Next Doors http://johnnextdoor.blogspot.co.uk/ method of colouring card to make the leaves. He showed it on C&C ... not this time but the last time he was on. You use as many shades of green Distress Ink as you have smudged on your card, add browns, orange etc:- blend them all together. Let it dry, cut as many leaves as you can get out of your sheet .. fantastic.
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by, I really appreciate it
Till next time
