Meadow Resist, Sunday Stampers week 257 -Thursday 16th May

Good Morning Friends,

Goodness I can't believe I've been 'missing' since Sunday from bloglamd..I have tried to keep up with your posts, but please excuse me if I haven't visited these last few's been another busy week!

 Most of my free time at the weekend was spent making and putting the finishing touches to the ribbon wreath for my Fantastic Ribbons DT project and thank you for all your lovely was a bit of  a 'labour of love' once I'd started it...and now it's hanging on our lounge door, welcoming visitors when they come through the hallway!

It reminded me that I haven't shared my door wreaths with you this year..those of you who have been my crafty friends here for a long time,will know that I decorate and hang a seasonal wreath on my front door. Last year I made all new ones and they will stay for this year too...for my newer friends over the next few days sometime I'll show you the story so far! However since making the ribbon wreath I already have ideas for interior door wreaths for autumn and winter using dies.

Sunday Stampers Week 257 - Simply Irresistable 

Yesterday, my crafting day was spent preparing for tonight's workshop...I'll be reporting on that tomorrow! Yesterday, I also made my project for this week's Sunday Stampers - this week Hels Sheridan has set the theme of using the resist technique and this is my project had to be resist in its simplest form because of time (or lack of it at the moment), but I love the technique Hels uses in her project this week and will be trying it as soon as I get the chance and some more distress paint. Click the link above to check it out!

The backing paper is from Teresa Collins 'Tell Your Story' 6x6 paper pad; I stamped the image, Crafty Individuals CI-385 on to Clarity Matte card using Perfect Medium. I then dusted with white embossing powder and heat embossed. The whole piece was then inked using a blend of Broken China, Mown Lawn and a hint of Pine Needles distress inks..simples!

That's all for today friends, I'm off to work now - you all have a great day!

  2. Hi Carole, I so nearly bought that stamp at Port Sunlight, wish I had now! Your card may be simple (to you) but it is quite stunning, the embossing looks amazing against that beautiful background. Love this card! Have fun at the class tonight. Hugs, Anne x
