Sweet Start

Happy New Year everyone! Here's hoping 2012 is a real cracker!

I started the new year off with some sorting and de-cluttering for a few hours and then I decided I deserved a reward for my hard work, so sat down to make a card. I've been playing again with the lovely papers coming up in the SAB catalogue on the 24th of this month.

Only a portion of the stamp was used (with markers) on the main panel. Instead of the butterflies on the stamp I die cut some and then used a marker again to ink the sentiment part of the stamp.

My stamped panel is inside a recessed portion, with the dsp panel being raised up. I made the watercolouring nice and soft in keeping with the muted tones of the papers and I used poppy parade again! LOL!

Materials used:

  • stamps - Up In The Air (hostess)
  • card - crumb cake, lucky limeade, watercolour, poppy parade, Everyday Enchantment DSP
  • punches - large oval, scallop oval, 1 1/4" square
  • other - lucky limeade ruffled ribbon, dimensionals, Beautiful Wings embosslit die, Big Shot, sponge dauber, aquapainter, markers

If you've achieved something already today, why not give yourself a little reward too? Begin as you mean to go on! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Gorgeous card Kez. Love the colours of the dsp. Very elegant.
Glad you got some de-cluttering done - is that a new year's resolution?

That recessed window is very effective - love it! Haven't got any SAB products yet - have been holding out. Now I'm going to have to get some.
