Catching Up

Today has been a busy one with the garden needing to be tidied up. However, I did manage to snatch an hour or so in the craft room making a couple of cards - actually, finishing off some I had started some time ago!

This card was inspired by the last CS magazine and the stamp that came with it. I stamped the image 4 times on yellow card then stamped some stitch lines across the centre, between each of the images. I layered this on green card then attached to a square ivory coloured card by stitching around the outer edge of the yellow card.

The sentiment is from my favourite Hero Arts set. I use this one a lot!!

This Mother's Day card was supposed to be for another challenge, but i missed the timeline. However, I did finish it and was quite pleased with the result. Some time ago, I bought a whole lot of Tim Holtz Alcohol inks and was playing around with them. I dabbed the applicator with three different coloured inks (so long ago I can't remember which ones - I need to write these things down!) then applied to acetate.

I stamped a Tanda image onto white card and used a Montarga sentiment. I then layered the white card on a wine base card and attached the acetate with square brads in the corners. Finished off with a wine coloured ribbon.
