(Before I forget, I am going to be featured on the OWH Blog tomorrow, Friday 13th! Quite exciting, especially when you have no idea what card/cards they pulled out in order to post it on the blog! So pop over there tomorrow if you want.)
Onto today - I have to say that K & Co. make really the most beautifully romantic patterned paper, and great quality too. I decided to use some for this card and ATC.
Paper: Kraft & Rustic Cream cardstock (PTI); K & Co. patterned paper; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Tumbled Glass DI; Rich Cocoa Memento ink
Stamps: Hero Arts; PTI (sentiment)
Other: Gems (Hero Arts); Sewing; PTI Edgers Die #1; Spellbinders Nestabilitie die
I used the PTI edgers die on kraft cardstock and then stitched the patterned paper to that before adhering it to my rustic cream card base.
I used a circle Spellbinders die and die cut two circles, one in white cardstock and one in patterned paper, which is the reverse side of the blue patterned paper. I partially stamped the Hydrangea on the white cardstock, added a pale blue gem and adhered that to the card.
I used a PTI long sentiment from a Year of Flowers stamp set and after stamping cut the paper strip in three so that I could fit it on the card.
I think I might send this one to my Mom because that is how I feel!
Now, here is my ATC.
Paper: K & Co; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Tea Dye & Vintage Photo DI
Stamps: Hero Arts Digital printout; Hero Arts "Antique Engravings" set & "Simple Frame" & the "Hydrangea"
Other: Gems (stash); Lace (stash); Pin (from my friend Tiffany); Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
I used a digital printout from Hero Arts for the heart. When I looked closely at that image I saw that there was actually a heart within a heart, which is what made me cut it out and ink it in pale blue (Tumbled Glass DI) and pop it up with pop dots. I love the sentiment on the blue heart, it says "woman of spirit".
It's very faint, but I did partly stamp the Hydrangia in the top right corner and also partly stamped the Simple Frame on the left edge of the ATC. I added the lace using the tiny attacher is that I could make those ruffles. I hope you like it!
We had maybe a teaspoon or two of rain yesterday. It's still windy and greyish today. It felt good to be out having a run, I took my dear Sahara (Rhodesian Ridgeback) with me, she just loves being out. We brought her over with us from South Africa, so today I will leave you with a picture of her.
Have an awesome day!
