I have never done the triple time technique before, but I had been wanting to try it. The card turned out pretty well, except I don’t like how the words blended in too much with the green. I had already spent way too much time on this, so I decided to leave it and correct when I make another one. The technique was pretty simple, the sizes of the very vanilla are 4″ x 5.25″ , 3″ x 4.25″, and 2″ x 3.25″. The Primrose petal was cut a 1/4″ larger for each dimension. I used a very very small piece of painters tape to hold my layers together while I stamped.
Hope you enjoy.
Stamps: Secret Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Summer starfruit, primrose petal, gumball green
Paper: Primrose petal, very vanilla
Sorry I have been kinda quiet over here. My dad came up for a couple of days. My family is going through a tough time right now. And it has put me in quite a funk. I have been trying to sit down and make something but my brain has a sever lack of inspiration. Even looking through other blogs for something to CAS hasn’t worked. I put together this card this morning because I have a couple of thank you’s to get out. It isn’t the best card I’ve made, but at least it is something. What do you do when your brain gets fried from life and you lose all artistic urges?
Want to have more variety in colors of card stock and DSP without having to buy full packs of paper. Don’t worry, kits are now available in my Etsy store. This first one was packaged using the Orchard Harvest Theme. If you are looking for specific colors, styles or materials, let me know! I can do custom kits as well.
To give you some inspiration, here are some thank you cards that I put together using the same card stocks and DSP that will be in the kit. I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and Easy Event stamp set. Both of these happen to be two of my favorites and most useful.
Happy New Year!!!
Just a reminder that if you want to sign up for the stamp of the month class on Friday January 11, the deadline is tomorrow (January 2).
