As my regular followers will know I have been missing of late ( well I hope they know ! ) Have just returned once again from London where I am trying you support my friend Dolly and her family through a very difficult time. Once again my mews has , to put it bluntly ” Done a Runner ” Although I have been back a few days am having great difficulty in the creative and blogging department !, so I thought I would ease myself gently back into the swing of things by making a few cards for myself when I saw the challenge by Paperplay which fitted my frame of mind perfectly. Their theme this week is ” Use Something Black ” Can I use my mood ??? No ? Well OK then I hope this card fits the bill !
Actually its a card and envelope together . My TH on the edge dies are getting a real work out lately if I’m not too careful they will become blunt !! Is it possible to sharpen them !? Using various DPs from my stash I made a pocket and sewed around the edges and made another little pocket for the front which could hold a little tag . I used one of my Hero Art flower engraving stamps on the front and cut out the frame with my Silhouette.
This is the little card that sits inside the envelope which I have embossed and added a little pearl .
This is the inside of the card and the envelope together ( well that’s obvious now isn’t it ! ) The back of the envelope is a different coloured paper but forgot to take a picture !!
Variations on the above , a little extra bling well not exactly bling , can pearls be classified as bling ? I should know I own a jewllery shop !!! Oh dear please excuse the rambling .
Why not pop over to Paperplay and feast your eyes on the wonderful inspirational pieces by the DT definitely something for everyone’s taste there .
I myself am off to pay you all a visit and catch up as best I can before I disapear once again to london. I have missed you all so much in the last ten days and am looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful art. Who knows I may even recapture my mews……better get my running shoes on then I suppose !http://paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/
P. S Do pop by on Monday when It is my turn to set the challenge at Get Creative there are some super prizes to be won !
