Card For Joan

Image
Such a simple card, made for one of the residents last week.  I'm not sure if the photo is clear enough, but the section on the right hand side has been put through the square lattice embossing folder.  Island Indigo is probably one of my all-time favourite colours and I love the dsp used here from Twitterpated.  It wasn't a massive card and had loads of signatures on it from all the staff, which the recipient was thrilled with.  I enjoyed making this so much I might pop off and make a couple more!

Card For Sue

Hello y'all!
I seem to have got a bit of my mojo back as I've bought a new set of Christmas stamps, but I can't show you what I'm making with those until I start posting them out as some of the recipients read my blog.
In the meantime, I've set a challenge for the Card Swap group to make a card using their all-time stamp set.  I imagine there was a lot of rummaging through boxes to find old friends! 
This is what I made to send to Sue Ralph:
You may well recognise that it's made with the French Foliage stamp set.  I love this set.  I always feel very artistic and creative with it and have never made something I didn't like.  I thought I'd add some of my favourite neutral ribbon and use my favourite punch on it as well! 
Hope you like it, I know Sue did!
Thanks for looking in today, I love to read your comments, so let me know what you think.
Back soon,
Happy crafting

Anyway, my challenge to the card swap group for October was to make an autumn-themed card.  This is what I made for Alison:
I used the Tape It stamp set again because I love it and find it so versatile.  The card base is the retired More Mustard colour, but I've still got loads of it left.  The ink spots are from French Foliage, which I stamped in More Mustard, and Cajun Craze on the white background.
Once again I stamped the Tape It stamps onto spare white cardstock and cut them out, but there's no reason why you couldn't stamp directly onto the card base.  I stuck them all down so they overlapped sl…
