Super Sandra has recently posted some really gorgeous cards using summery oranges on her blog. Inspired, and because it was too hot to tackle the ironing yesterday (my excuse), I made a little notelet:
Hmm, with the rain here we could do with a Summer reminder I think. The top half of the card was embossed using the CB and a couple of lines embossed underneath. The flower was made from some snippets using a Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, crumpled, tweaked about with, then pinned together with a glass brad from my stash. The brad was coloured with a Pro Marker to match some gems I found in my stash and the orange ribbon is from a load of small reels I got ages ago from QVC. A wide range of colours to choose from but not a lot on each reel - still, it often comes in useful. Tip, when wrapping ribbon round a vertical fold card, just cut a little slit in the spine to thread the ribbon through.
The little tag was stamped onto another snippet using a great little set made by ElzyBells and then tied on with a bit of string from The Ribbon Girl. I've lamented the closure of ElzyBells on here a few times - thankfully I did stock up in their closing down sale but I do miss their stamps!
Having finally tackled a few more snippets I'm entering this into:
Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge - Week 30
Right, now do I face some ironing (been too hot to do so for a few days) or go out in my little car in search of deep puddles and hunky firemen? It should be a 'no-brainer' but there's such a pile of folded laundry here I think it's gonna have to be the Domestic Goddess after all. Just have to hope there's a good film or two on TV............in between popping back in here to check what's going on in Bloggyland!!! Have a nice day whatever you're up to.
