Good Morning All,
Apologies for not having blogged for a week, just not had the opportunity what with work and all!
Have now managed to catch up with myself and had the chance to make some cards. As you can see from the photo, it snowed here yesterday. This is what my back garden looked like at 8am this morning – don’t think the cat was too impressed, but the dog thought it was brilliant and had great fun 🙂
Anyway, snow tends to make me stay indoors, so a great excuse for crafting!
Last week I bought some of the Portobello Road collection – the paper pack, the ribbons, the buttons and one of the stamp sets, and yesterday I decided that I would have a play with that, and these are the cards I came up with. The one on the left is an easel card with a Magnolia stamped image coloured in with Promarkers. The next one along is a rucksack shaped card, then the Mini is a Kanban stamped image, again coloured in with Promarkers and I’ve tried to make this look like the Mini has driven through the flag and is therefore coming out of the card – think it works! For the last one I followed a sketch for the layout and used the “Keep Calm and” stamps from Personal Impressions, which I think compliment the Portobello Road collection really well.
So, despite the weather, I enjoyed myself, and it looks like I can have another crafty day today 😀
Back again soon
