So, you’re probably wondering how I missed my Wednesday post? I blame Barcelona. Unfortunately, my bag was stolen while I was there last weekend and this week got lost in a delayed return as I had to get an emergency passport, doing battle with insurance companies and generally sorting things out. I’m fine and at the end of the day, it was just stuff and I did get an extra day in one of my favourite cities. I’m not letting the experience mar my weekend or how I feel about Barcelona and I’ll be going back.
Anyway, on to today’s card. I made this as inspiration for our craft retreat attendees, using some of the products they received in their goody bag and taking the colours from the Party animal DSP as my starting point. I also used the “Thank You” stamp from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, So Very Much.
I used re-inkers in the Party Animal colours (Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Pacific Point & Tangerine Tango) to drop ink onto a couple of folded baby wipes to create my ink pad. I wiped embossing buddy over my Whisper White layer, stamped my stamp in Versamark and then into my makeshift ink pad. Finally, I used clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I used one of the Party Animals DSP’s as my border and Crushed Curry as my base.
Want to make this? You’ll need to spend £45 in order to choose the stamp set as your Sale-a-bration item. To get there I’d suggest Whisper White and Crushed Curry cardstock, Party Animals DSP, ink refillers in Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango, embossing buddy, Versamark and clear embossing powder. Click on the Shop with me button and don’t forget to use the host code – TRS79Q47 – if your order is less than £150 to receive an extra gift from me. Over £150 don’t use it as you’ll get the rewards to spend and you’ll still get the gift from me.
Simple but effective – I love that bit of rainbow! See you on Wednesday (further disasters permitting!).
