These are a few very quick cards I made in an effort to use up some of the old stash I have collected over the years. However, I don't think I made the slightest 'dent' in my supplies.
I bought quite a few of the little bows with a pearl circlet, and I must admit they look lovely on baby girl cards. The pretty border punch was from a set of punches purchased about 12 years ago from a major chain store, and the cardstock and purple paper are pearlised.
In 2004, during a trip to London to visit.....no, not the Queen...our son, I went to a craft show at Esher. Along with lots of other goodies, I bought a packet of these elegant silhouette die-cuts, and a packet of very long, narrow envelopes. When I came home, I 'squirreled' them away, and forgot about them. You may have read in a previous post that I found a large stash of forgotten goodies when I cleaned out the top of a very high craft cupboard, and these items were among them. The 3 circles were cut with a SB die, and mounted with 3D tape.
If I live to be 150, I don't think I will decrease my supply of peel-off stickers significantly.
Several years ago, I bought quite a few assorted sheets of 12x12 scrapbooking paper from an Australian family-owned company, called Paper Pleasure Plus. They have since closed down. Their paper was of beautiful quality - heavy weight and unique. I used a SB die to cut these lovely deeply-embossed roses, and peel-off border stickers to dress the edges.
I did not decorate the inside of this card and the one above, but just inserted a plain white insert sheet instead.
Challenges I would like to enter are:-
Hotshot Craft #14 - 'Clean and Simple'
Corrosive #165 - 'Out With The Old'
Until next time, happy crafting, and thank you for visiting.
