Well the last couple of days have been challenging when it came to getting any time to craft, let alone blog. My kiddiwinks are starting to get bored and with the weather not being brilliant, i have been busy trying to keep them occupied.
But here we are....and i know...Christmas...but i was sort of working towards it, wasn't i?
So i came up with the lovely 'Everything Eleanor' stamp set.
The 'En Francais' stamp was inked up with More Mustard ink first. Then i added accent colours of Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler using my Stampin' Write markers directly onto the stamp before stamping onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
This was matted onto Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green cardstock.
The label stamp was inked up with Crumb Cake ink and the 'Seasons Greetings' sentiment (from the Curly Cute stamp set) was stamped using Early Expresso ink.
The flowers are inked up with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green ink. I have also heat embossed some with gold and cut them out.
I have finished the card off with some Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon (can't stop using it at the moment...need to get more!) and an Antique Brad.
I am hoping that i have dealt with the need to do Christmas for a bit now. I just need some nice sunny weather to help me revert back to more Summery cards, after all, it is still August!
Thanks for visiting today. I hope the sun shines soon for you too!
