Part II of the KCUK Challenge is a 10 minute C card. (Eeek! Way too early to say the real word and to get all the C stamps out!)
Anyway, here’s mine.
The background is a Cuttlebug Smoosh (or is it Smooch?) – coloured with Memories Soft Stone ink, swiped over it before embossing. The stamps are Stazon on acetate, which had to be thermal so I could heat set them. Attached with brads and a bit of ATG under the tree, then matted first onto silver card, then onto grey. I had the card cut to size before I began and the card is a lovely, thick embossed card I use a lot because it absorbs inks well, so it dried quickly.
This was my second attempt because my first one didn’t work :-( I clear embossed and tried to use Glimmer Mists but NONE of my sprays worked! I was well miffed. I brought them downstairs to clean out but half of them still didn’t work, so I may just give up on them and use them as paints :-) Wouldn’t mind but I have loads of them, although to be honest, I haven’t used them much since I stopped doing workshops.
Forgot to say that this fits the Sunday Stampers’ theme for this week, which is Pine trees, so I’m going to enter it for that. It came to mind as I was thinking about which stamps to use and then I forgot. That’s what comes of rushing out in the morning, lol. Thanks for the challenge, Hels!
Had one of those days… Went to use my Stampers Anonymous flourish and couldn’t find it. There are some stamps I leave permanently on mounts because I use them so often and that’s one of them – I think it’s the best flourish stamp I have. Then I decided I wanted to use my CI angels stamp – guess what? Can’t find that, either, so I was already frustrated before the Glimmer Mists incident. AND while looking for it, one of my A4 sheets of Christmas stamps fell behind the chest of drawers they’re kept on – aagghh! I need another good blitz in that room, I think, although I’m getting ready to move everything into another room, so sort of putting it off until then. I won’t be able to stamp for a while when I do that and I’m not looking forward to it!
(Quick edit – this was Thursday – just found my flourish stamp – Friday! Phew! Looked everywhere for it and then found it in my basket of used stamps – duh – minus mount! I’ve put it straight back onto a mount so that I don’t lose it in future :-) What a waste of precious stamping time, lol!)
Ever felt an Angel's breath in the gentle breeze? A teardrop in the falling rain? Hear a whisper amongst the rustle of leaves? Or been kissed by a lone snowflake? Nature is an Angel's favourite hiding place. Terri Guillemets
