Sunday Stampers Wk 273 - Friends - Wednesday 4th September

Good Morning Friends,

Well I've been missing a few days, prepping for this week's Out of the Blue craft class, still working on those last few presents to take away with us and still not getting to grips with forthcoming craft fair cards!

Never mind! Some months ago, we used these Indigo Blu stamps in one of our craft classes, so I thought I would revisit the stamps for this week's Sunday Stampers. This time Hels Sheridan has set the theme of 'Friends' - full deets here

Back when we did our class I made a silver version of this card, so this time have chosen browns and golds. It's a very simple card:  I stamped the image using a coffee  archival ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

For the matting and layering with the gilding flakes I used double sided tape and finished off with a knotted ribbon.

That's it for today...well what could be better than an evening with good friends and good wine?!

Love and hugs,
Carole X


  1. Hi Carole

    A great finished look .. .. and what a brilliant sentiment.

    Sounds like you have as much on your "do list" as I have LOL!!

    Love Jules xx

  2. You are so right, an evening with friends (with or without the wine!) is so precious. Your card is great I do remember you using this stamp but it seems so long ago and I didn't remember the colours you used. This looks really good in the brown and gold. Have a good day. Christine xx

  3. Morning Carole,
    Great card and it's good to spend time with good friends.

  4. Such a great sentiment and so true.... Love your card, the gilding flakes look amazing. Have done my entry but have a 'technical' problem so may not be able to show it! Love yours though. Hugs, Anne x

  5. Hi Carol,
    fabulous card. I love your stamp and gilding flakes. As someone said you can't beat a night with good friends, especially with a great bottle of wine.
    Having trouble with my i mac won't go on the net wirelessly So I am having to resort to, either my i pad or DH laptop.
    I hate not having my mac, but I suppose it's getting old like me, and things break down or parts start to need replacing. lol.
    Have wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

    1. Ooh Jenny, I'd be so lost without my Mac - I hate using Windows at work and sometimes on an evening I bloghop with the iPad and it's no where near as satisfying..hope you get it sorted! Hugs Carole X

  6. Wine and friends? Perfect combination! Great card Carole,the sentiment makes it!xx

  7. Love that gilding, I have tonnes of gilding flakes (well not literally cos that would fill my entire house up lol) and never use them... love your card... Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  8. Ooopps! sorry missed this one.
    Wine and fiends what a wonderful combination just like your card.
    The combination of everything makes a stunning card.
