Thank You

Hi guys

Well, I'm back after way too long without sharing any creations with you and I hope you'll forgive me for being missing since the end of May!  Life seems to have just got in the way of crafting these last couple of weeks but hopefully that blip is now over and I'll be back on a regular basis again now.

I've made a few new purchases this month so I've found my mojo tonight as I was itching to ink up two of my new stamp sets to use on this card.

For the latest challenge at Less is More we have a colour challenge and are being challenged to use 'the colours in your bedroom'.  If you've been a follower of my blog for a while you may remember I shared a card as part of my 'Inspired by...' series a while ago here and my bed linen was the inspiration, so I decided to have another go using the same colours again and came up with this...

First I stamped the stems and then stamped the two-step blooms in two yellow tones.  I then stamped the stems again on a post-it note and cut this out with a thin border and used this to mask the stems on the card.  Next I stamped the diagonal stripes across the card over the mask.  The sentiment and some Doodlebug Sprinkles were added to finish.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up - Too Kind; Clearly Besotted Stamps - Diagonal Stripes and Sweet Little Sentiments
  • Ink: Versa Color - Bamboo, Canary, Split Pea and Cement; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Doodlebug Sprinkles - Bumblebee and Limeade

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Challenge #250 - No Design Papers
Let's Craft and Create - Challenge #93 - Spots and/or Stripes
Time Out - Challenge #7 - Summer with option of Flowers (nothing says summer to me more than yellow!)
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes

If you've taken the time to visit today I'm so grateful you've stuck with me even though I've been a rubbish blogger lately.  I have lots of new goodies to play with so I hope to use some of these very soon and be back here again shortly.

Take care
