Yesterday evening I made my first card of 2014.
I've been wanting to take part in the latest challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch ever since it was launched before Christmas but never seemed to find enough time.
I also won a challenge last month at Creative Inspirations and was able to purchase some goodies from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, and the package arrived a few days ago so I wanted to have a play :)
Here is my card...
The distressed grid was stamped in white on the card base. I then stamped and embossed the hearts before cutting them out with their co-ordinating dies. I placed some glue dots behind where I wanted the hearts and randomly spiraled some jute twine, using the glue dots to hold it in place. Before adhering the hearts on 3D foam I stamped the sentiments, and then finished off with some gems.
- Stamps: Kaisercraft - Grid; Clearly Besotted Stamps - Love Hearts (with matching dies) and Happy Days
- Ink: Versa Color - White; Versafine - Onyx Black; VersaMark
- Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - White; Rubber Stampede - Gold
- Gems: Papermania - from Capsule Sunshine set
- Jute twine from stash
And as there are a few hours left I decided to add this as another entry at:
Less is More Week 151 - Choose any previous challenge - I chose Week 143 'Stringing Along' (use string/twine)
While I'm here I'd like to say thank you for all the wonderful comments on my 'Year in Review' post. I had a great first year and hope to continue for many more.
That's all for now. Have a great weekend and I hope to see you soon.
