Well this post is late. late, late, late. and my hands have been slapped. ;)
but it couldn't be helped. I'm just thankful that I was able to do some crafty yesterday to get started making up on my overdue DT assignments. nope, it's not Tuesday, but it is the other T day of the week, so I'm going to just enjoy my coffee and go with it. grins!
the new challenge over at Top Tip Tuesdays this fortnight is Spooled Items. in other words, use ribbons, twine, or anything else that might possibly come on a spool ( or used to come on a spool ). We are sponsored by Bugaboo and QKR Stampede, who so very kindly provided the team with images to use. There are some very creative projects over on the Top Tip Tuesdays Challenge blog, so do hop over to check them out.
I chose this fun 'Patchwork Sun' image by QKR Stampede for my card. I had plans to do one thing with it, but then a friend of ours from Camp ended up in the hospital. immediately I knew it would make the perfect 'thinking of you' card for everyone at Camp to sign. the beautiful scripture comes from Karen Murray over at Word Art by Karen and Papercraft Memories. I have known her for a very long time and she does such gorgeous work.
Digital papers are from a freebie kit at the Sweet Shoppe and are called 'You make me happy.' the little flowers are Prima and buttons are from my stash. words on the scripture piece are highlighted with shimmerz paint. the yellow and rose ribbons were gifted to me by my good friend Suzie Mc Floozy, so I'm sorry I don't know who made them. the pastel pink trim along the bottom is a vintage piece. a fun stamp set from Inky Antics called 'Sew Many Stitches' was used on the aqua piece. I promise you will see LOTS more of this stamp set! :)
the scripture and sun are both popped up on foam tape, but the sun is on a thicker piece. I really like to do this at times when I want to give even more dimension to my card fronts. you can see the shadows behind the sun. also note how the yellow chevron arrows point to the word 'you'. sometimes it is the little things like this that can make a big difference! :)
