Stampavie DT Call

>> Thursday, 9 July 2009

I really should have been doing some housework this lunchtime but Thomas tested my patience to the limit all morning so while he took a nap I decided on a bit of ‘me’ time and finished this card. I have an anniversary, a family birthday and a wedding all coming up in the next week so I’m on a mission to get all the cards done in time.


This is for my sister and brother-in-laws wedding anniversary this weekend. The layout was a lovely one to use – I definitely seem to prefer symmetrical sketches. There’s plenty of embellishments on this card, don’t think I could have fitted anymore on! And what a difference photographing the card in natural light! I really must try and do this every time.


I’m going to enter this card into several challenges:

Stampavie DT call, Creative Card Crew (Ribbons), Papertake Weekly (My Favourite Things), Spoon Full of Sugar (Hearts), Stamp with Stampavie (sketch)

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Sarah Kay “A Kiss for Chloe”

Colouring Medium: Distress Inks: Tattered Rose (skin), Worn Lipstick (Chloe’s dungarees), Tea Dye, Brushed Cordroy, Walnut Stain (hair, hats and boys dungarees)

Paper: Basic Grey Bittersweet

Embellishments: Paper roses (Wild Orchid Crafts), dress pins with added beads, ribbon, pearls

Tools: Oval nesties, MS lace doily punch, Leon-Em branch punch

Just beautiful Sharon, your layout and colouring are superb and I'm sure your Sis and BIl will love it. You asked about the Stempelglede stamps and I got them from a shop in Norway. It was a bit problematic as they wanted me to do a bank transfer which I said no to as it would have cost more than the stamps! Eventually they gave in and let me use paypal. The postage from Norway was very reasonable, only about £4 I think. I'll hunt out the details as soon as I can for you and email you a link to the shop and you can try your luck with them. Hope you have a great weekend and a less testing time with Thomas, bless him, they really know how to push all the buttons at times :). Chris xxx
