I've been a lean, mean, card making machine for the last day and a half. I've made a whopping thirteen cards - all different and, if I do say so myself, all beautiful. I'm not going to blog all of them, but I will showcase those with which I'm most happy. I didn't use any challenges for any of the thirteen cards and given how prolific I've managed to be, I'm wondering if I need to keep it free and loose more often.
The background paper is BasicGrey June Bug (Apron). The focal image, Close To My Heart Always In My Mind on Stampin' Up Whisper White, is layered on a piece of glossy paper coloured with Sunset Orange, Caramel and Copper Mixative Ranger Adirondack alcohol ink, layered on another piece of Whisper White. The embellishments are Keepsakes Memories from Multicrafts.
The background paper is DCWV Pocket Full of Posies. The horizontal strip is glossy paper coloured with Sail Boat Blue, Stream, Cloudy Blue and Pearl Mixative Ranger Adirondack alcohol ink. The image, layered on Stampin' Up Baja Breeze, is Magenta Bachelor Buttons, colour with Stampin' Up watercolour crayons on watercolour paper. The sentiment is Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings. The embellishments are Dollarama Crafts Gem Chic.
The card base is Recollections. The paper is Close To My Heart Bamboo, Colonial White and Miracle. The images are Gina K. Botanicals and the sentiment is Spring Blooms, stamped in Stampin' Up Marina Mist and Bashful Blue. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Pearl Opaques.
I'm very pleased with all the cards I've crafted over the past couple of days. I'm obviously very partial to blue because many of these cards are either blue or have strong blue overtones. My favourite is the third card. I love the offset layout and the natural tones. I actually made two cards which are very similar.
I hope you enjoy these cards and come back to SPI again soon.
