I was away at the weekend at a crop – i.e. a weekend filled with crafting, classes, music and chat with like minded people. My sister and friend joined me and we had a blast. We even made a bunch of cards, this being one of them – the inspiration for which was this week’s challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.
The challenge banner is
The stamp set is Acorny Thank You which I’m having a lot of fun with. I stamped the striped nut in delightful Dijon on very vanilla and then cut them out with the new punch. Then I punched out a few nut hats in chocolate chip and blackberry bliss although I stamped off once with the blackberry bliss or it looked almost black. I cut the top off the nut hat from the very vanilla version because otherwise it was peeking out from under the stamped one. The top two acorns are glued to the very vanilla piece whereas the bottom one is popped up with dimensionals. I really like the sentiment and the typeface of the hi – I stamped this in chocolate chip. I matted this in delightful Dijon and then put it on a blackberry bliss card base. The very vanilla envelope is lined using the envelope framelits and the retired backgrounds DSP – I need to get the new version of this DSP, it’s so useful, especially for lining envelopes.
See you tomorrow,
