Today’s card is probably the easiest leftover’s card I’ve made this week! The leftover was the Whisper White Cardstock (CS) oval and everything on it. All I needed to do was to decide how to use it! My options were very limited, so I decided to use a piece of Balmy Blue Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack.You’ve probably heard me say several times that the patterns used for this years 6″ x 6″ DSP Stacks are much better than last year’s designs. I can’t justify buying one each of all the stacks as I have so much leftover from last year. Temptation finally, just a bit, and I bought the Subtle collection! The trouble is the more I see it the more I’d like to have the other packs!!
On Thursday I finally sorted out my two ribbon drawers. On last week’s video I showed how I was using Washi Tape to stop my rolls of ribbon from unwinding. After I had sorted all my rolls out with Washi Tape, I put my ribbons in sections. The first section is obviously current ribbons, and the second section is retired ribbons but current colours. That leaves the last section as retired ribbons in retired colours.
I digress!! I tied some Whisper White ribbon around the top two layers of today’s card and tied it in a bow on the right-hand side. I added some gems in the top right-hand corner and a larger one by the word friend on the Whisper White oval. I think they were called Metallic Enamel Shapes. I must learn to keep this kind of product in its original packaging! The final touch on the front of my card was to paint the daisy using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I doubt if you’ll be able to see the shine in the photographs, but in real life it shows up beautifully! To decorate the inside of today’s card I added a layer of Whisper White CS.
Using Memento Ink, I stamped the small daisy from Daisy Lane Stamp Set on a scrap of Whisper White CS. I painted the petals with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin Blends, and then I went over the top part of all the petals with the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin Blends. I went back to the Light Balmy Blue Blend to blend the tw blues together. Next I use the daffodil Delight Light Ink to colour the centre. Before I fussy cut the daisy, I painted it with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen as before, and then adhered it in the bottom right-hand corner!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend, whatever you have planned. Ours will be a fairly quiet weekend as Othman is on call again, but I will be going to my Church house group social evening. There will probably only be four of us, but as I’m new to the group, it’ll give me an opportunity to get to know the ladies better. ☺
