Off to the shops little cards

by adele on September 14, 2010

I’ve beeen waiting for a sunny day to take some photos and, boy, did Melbourne turn it on today! Mind you, it wasn’t feeling nearly as warm when I headed out the door at 7am to be on duty for the Father’s Breakfast at my son’s school, but it’s looking like my kinda day now.

Thought I’d show you a quick “group shot” before I delivered my next batch of cards to the shops. (If you’re around the Balwyn area, ’Blooms’ the florist is now fully stocked.)

You’ve seen the card on the right in an earlier post so let me just show you the other two just quickly.

I was so happy to see Razzle Dazzle return in the new catalogue. Not sure how I’d classify this floral image but I love it! Makes me think of Moroccan fabrics…. Anyway, easy peesy card. Sahara Sand, Riding Hood Red and Basic Grey ink, bang, bang, bang (using a Stamp-a-ma-jig), hand drawn stitch lines with my marker, a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and a button to finish it off.

This card below (inspired by this card by Carole Kisch who’s blog I love to stalk visit) uses the gorgeous Level 1 hostess set called ‘Because I Care’. The one below is a stepped up version of the set I did for the shops. It’s been distressed and ‘daubed’ and then finished off with the exquisite new satin ribbon in Very Vanilla. It’s a bit hard to see in the photo but the hydrangea has been randomly stamped on a Cherry Cobbler cardbase in Versamark. And can I say….. Oh how I LOVE Cherry Cobbler! If you love Riding Hood Red, you must get this colour!! It’s like RHR in high definition!

If I had my time again making this particular card, I would have made two changes, actually three….. I would have tied the knot at the other end so that it lined up with the stem of the flower. I would have made the centre cardstock a touch wider so that the last scallop was complete, and I probably would have used a different colour of ribbon…. black … old olive… Oh well. Does anyone else do that? Finish a card and then pick it to pieces. Or am I the only one? Think I might just need to get over myself (((grin))).
