KNIT 1 PURL 2



Hi... thanks for popping by

I made this card for a relative's birthday, who is an avid knitter.
It's a 6" square white card base and I added a thin pink mat (pink card from my stash).  I cut a smaller piece of white foundation card by CE and embossed it using the Nordic Tiles EF by SW for CE and adhered to the pink card leaving a narrow border.
The ball of wool and knitting needles come as one stamp by Woodware.  I stamped the image with Clear Perfect Medium Stamp Pad, sprinkled WOW Embossing Powder in Princess Pink over the wool and heat set it.  I then very lightly sprinkled a few colours of the Pixie Powders by CE and spritz the image.  I used a water colour pencil to colour the needles then cut out the whole image, added mounting foam to the back and adhered to the card.  From my stash I added a few sequins and added a Birthday Wishes sentiment by CE

TWO SHADES BUT ONE CARD

Hi... thanks for popping by

I thought I'd show you just how, by adding a little extra light to the same card, can make a huge difference!

The top one is too dark and the bottom too bright LOL!  The colour of the card is actually a very pretty pink

Let me know which you prefer

Thank you for visiting

I always look forward to reading your comments...

SATURDAY SPECIAL GIVE AWAY ~ HOME

Hi... thanks for popping by


Today's give away card is made using several new dies by SW for CE.  From the Kinetics range I've used the 3D Window Box and Accessories and the Arched Window/Door.  From the Finishing Touches range I used several elements from the Spring Foliage Dies Set.  I added a piece of acetate behind the windows to give the appearance of glass


If you'd like to give this card a new home all you need to do is comment below and a winner will be picked Monday morning, so don't forget to come back then to see if it's you!


Thank you for visiting, have a good weekend

BIRTHDAY WISHES FOR A FABULOUS DAY



Hi... thanks for popping by
Teal foundation card by CE is one of my favourite colours and adding white and a little black to the card really enhances the design.  I have to confess of this being one of my older cards so I'm struggling to name the dies used!! The striplet die is by SW for CE and I added Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles in teal to the inner diamond shapes of the striplet card.  A *handy hint is to cut a second striplet and adhere over the previous one and in that way it makes for a neater image.  The flowers and swirls are Spellbinder Dies as is the topper for the sentiment
Thank you for visiting, I really do appreciate you checking in to my blog and taking the time to comment
Tomorrow is the Saturday Special Give Away Card... all you need to do is come back here tomorrow and if you would like to give the card a new home leave me a comment.  The winner will be picked and announced on Monday
