Well, what a week last week was !!!!!!! Not only did my little sister Kal at Crafting with Mabel get showcased over at Happy Little Stampers with her first-ever card but I too was showcased at Less is More and was Chic of the week over at Just Us Girls. needless to say, both sisters were very happy indeed.
So here I am again with another card for Just us Girls, it’s colour week this week and they are asking us to use Red, Black, and White.
Sounds simple, three colours what could go wrong? Plenty if you’re me I took all day to make a card and at the last minute decided against it so here is it’s replacement.
Super simple as you can see, I used my Cameo to cut the image and swiped Rocket Red Archival ink onto white card stock, I cut a few pieces of black card and gave the gentleman hair, and the lady shoes and a frock. I did in retrospect feel I should have given the gentleman something to wear, a pair of shorts at least I mean the lady is wearing mitts and he only has his hair to keep him warm!!
The panel was popped up with doubled sided foam for dimension and a couple of stick pins for a little something-something cos basically it looked a little plain.
Mr. P said they looked like they were walking the red carpet !!!? so I added a touch of red
And here’s the card that didn’t make the cut it’s not bad I just couldn’t make my mind up which I preferred so I’m entering this one into Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge and NBUS as it’s the first outing for this die.
I love this Altenew die,I used three layers of white card for dimension and two layers of red for the paper piecing but I felt something was missing a sentiment just seemed to take up too much space so I left it blank.
Do pop over to Just us Girls the lovely and talented Mac is the guest designer for the month of April and once again she and the Design team have fabulous cards to inspire us.
Happy Little Stampers and NBUS have some amazing cards in the gallery so make sure you pass by there too.
For all those who celebrated Easter I hope you had a fabulous time, here in Greece we celebrate next week so am looking forward to another swim in The Med weather permitting of course.
