Hey there blog following friends. This is a card I made earlier this evening just because. It’s not for any particular challenge or person. I was looking through one of my card magazines and kinda got the idea from one of the cards I saw in it. Not allot going on with it, but i kinda like it! I changed it up a few times as I was putting it together.
I was just recently in a ribbon swap and received this enveloped stuffed full of ribbon!! One of the ribbons in the envie was ther really cool felt ribbon that I just love! I was looking for something to use to separate my cardstock from the designer paper and this did the trick!!
I have this paper pack from K&Company and their Tim Coffey Designer Paper pack and I just love this pad of paper…..have I maybe told you that already in a previous post…..lol. The flowers are cut out from one of the sheets and then layered together. I didn’t glue the flowers down completely which gives them a very slight dimentional effect that works pretty well.
The card base actually started out white, but I didn’t like the sharp contrast so I grabbed by Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Old Paper and inked up the front of the card…..much better and more subtle! The sentiment is from my Close To My Heart ‘Frames, Tags, Borders’ set and I inked it using my Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink in ‘Forest Moss’ . I didn’t have a green ribbon that I liked so I took a cream colored piece and inked it with the same ink pad and it was the perfect shade for my card.
I think I need to start bloggin either in the early evening or morning cause I always seem to be cramming it in right before I hit the hay!! Oh well…..it’s not like I’m one to go to bed early!!! Later ladies…..thanks so much for stopping by once again!!
Hey my fine blogging friends! As you know, I’ve been participating in the weekly Alphabet challenge Dani has each week where we also have to write another few lines to our continuing story with the emphasis being the letter of the week. Well, we’re on the letter ‘D’ this week and I had a heck of a time trying to figure out what to do! As I told Lynn, I just couldn’t find my mojo and figure it must have ran off with the sweet tarts……man! I hate when that happens!! I decided to just start going through my few stacks of paper to see if inspiration would jump out at me. I came across some paper I’d used in the past and wouldn’t you know it…..there was a dragonfly on the page!! The mojo was back!!
I’ve had these dried flower looking flowers for a while and have used them a couple of times…..for this card they worked out very well….’drooping daisies’!! The paper itself has what looks to me like a dried up old bees nest and I really like the sort of vintage feel of it. I also have these strings of beads that I thought looked good coming out of the dried moss and of course, as I’m sure you can plainly see, they were ‘dazzling diamonds’! I added an extra ‘dragonfly’…..oh!, sorry… a ‘delicate and delightful dragonfly’. 😉 This little beauty is from a package of beautiful embellishments my Secret Cupid sent my in my package. It’s from a K&Company package and their Susan Winget Botanical set. I just love all the embellishments in this set and I know I’ll be putting them to good use!! Thanks again Kathy…..you rock!!!
So, here’s a look at the whole card. I really do like the look of this paper. It’s from a paper pack by K&Company and their Tim Coffey line of Designer Paper. I’ve used this paper pack quite a bit and I love every piece of paper in it…..and that doesn’t happen too often.
I’m off to post my card to the SCS Alphabet thread now and then go and find my pillow. Thank you so much for popping in, I do appreciate the company!!
