It’s Tuesday again! Where is the time going? After a tough couple of days of being unwell I’m starting to be on the mend again and just getting on with it.
Today’s card is a cute 3×3 that’s quick and easy that would be perfect to show someone how much you appreciate them. I wanted to push myself to use the Dandelion Wishes stamp set, because while I love the images and sentiments I’ve struggled to use it. Something I learned while at university was to start with a small space with limited goods and problem solve until I make something reasonably good. I recommend it, it’s easy to go crazy and loose track. Promise me you’ll give it ago when your next in a creative rut and show me the outcome.
I was using scraps mostly from left over kits so that’s were the Basic Black base where salvaged from along with the cute polka dot ribbon. Some of you might shy away from black as a base understandably of course but it can be solved with some Whisper White! Anyway I used a mat of Basic Black, rubbed it down down with the Embossing buddy and stamped the 3 Dandelions in Versamark. As I wanted the flowers also on the bottom I used some copier paper just to block off the area.
I heat set the flowers in white which just pops off the the Basic Black. The sentiment is also from this set and fits perfectly in the one of the squares in the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I say fits perfectly, I ran the sentiment through twice to get a rectangular shape from the square. I wanted the ribbons just to sit behind the sentiment so I wrapped it around the card just to hide the ends.
My mad rumbling on might seem like that card isn’t worth the hassle but it’s adorable and anybody would love o receive it. I know I would either way!
See you around!
