Thank goodness it's Tuesday tomorrow! Fingers crossed I shall enjoy a smidgen of a lie in before attempting to tidy the crafting table of shame. I had some cunning storage delivered on Monday and hopefully the parcel redelivery I've booked for tomorrow will be my ribbon storage from Ali Reeves company.
I quick play for my card tonight. I decided to try to recreate some of the cards we made on Saturday. I had fun making the wreath card and got everything slightly covered in blue ink, but ultimately decided it wasn't my style. Instead I masked off a strip on a 6x6 card (as it was lying on my desk) and replicated the snowflake strip that we had made using the Hunkydory sparkling baubles stamp set. I had a rummage in my stash to find an ink to work with and came across an unused blue Generation Inx ink pad by Stamps by Me. They produce some layering stamps and promote this ink as being good the use for multiple generations of stamping to give multiple shades. I have to say that it is very juicy and even the third generation impression was still a good strong colour.
I used an inkylicious ink duster to apply the background colour in a sweeping stroke, at the workshop we used shaving brushes to apply the ink and then added the snowflakes in first (when I forgot to blot), second and a few in third generation ink. I repeat stamped the dotty border in versafine black ink to edge the band.
I die cut the sentiment out of a bit of matt silver card that was leftover from making tomorrow's design team card and layered it up twice to add some definition. The sentiment is from the original tattered lace snowglobe die set and is great in that the apostrophe and dot above the i are attached do you don't lose the tiny bits of card when you try to stick them on. The matt silver holly was a reject from tomorrow's card, not sure where the actual die came from, so I added it along with three blue gems to finish. In hindsight I think the proportions may work better on a portrait rectangular style card, so may make one like that later.
As the sentiment was cut from a scrap of card, I'm going to enter this card over at Snippets Playground. I'm going to see if Parsnip has melted in the heat!
