Really? Friday already! Where has this week gone? On the plus side, it does mean I get to share with you my Friday Feature!
This week I have made a very simple card using one of the new, what do you mean you didn't know? Yes, NEW stamps from Visible Image.
I am very partial to butterflies as you know, but this gerbera-like flower is gradually making its' way up there into my Top 5 favourite Visible Image stamps.
Using only 2 colours, other than the white of course, I would say this is a CAS card but some of you might not agree. At what point does a Clean and Simple card become not a CAS card I wonder? I shall ponder that thought later.
I stamped the flower four times onto a piece of white card leaving plenty of space for cropping. I then cut them out deliberately avoiding having the centre of the flower in the middle of the square. I played around with the position of them until I was happy and then stuck them onto a piece of pink card. I then cut a piece of white card to the same width as the new square and stamped 2 more flower heads. Once again I stamped them to be 'off the page'. Using a navy ink I stamped the sentiment directly over the flowers on this panel. I decorated each of the 4 flowers with a navy gem and mounted the whole thing onto navy card before putting onto a white card blank. So there it is, what else can I say about it?
The only thing left for you to do is to pop over to the Visible Image web site and check out all the other fantastic DT samples, and maybe you will be inspired to have a go yourself at making something fantastic. You could enter it into the monthly challenge and be in with a chance to win some Visible Image stamps.
There is also the Facebook group which is a great place to meet like-minded stampers, get to hear about all the latest products, and chat with us guys at Visible Image.
I for one am hoping that today is a 'good' day as I have had a couple of craft-room disasters. First my heat gun broke. I am not prepared to play around with electrical tools so I have had to order a new one which is going to take 3-5 working days to get to me. Living in rural Wales isn't all good you know! Then my darling little Cuttlebug decided to throw a cog! Yes, I have a Grand Calibur but that is too big to be heaved on and off the desk. Now this I was happy to try and fix. A few screws and Bingo! She is working again! Now they do day that things come in threes.........fingers crossed for today then! I just better not go near my Scan'n'Cut hey.
See you next Friday, have a good weekend.
