 Good morning crafty friends

I'm having quite a bad (not that you have any good)  rheumatoid flare and ongoing gallbladder pain for several weeks now and, unfortunately, both are draining me more than ever.  I do hope to be back blogging and visiting your blogs soon and appreciate your concern and kind words

Take care!

NEW CHALLENGE AT MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES (MAWTT)

CREATE A SCENE

Good morning crafty friends

I made this card sometime ago and thought it perfect for our challenge this month of 'Create A Scene'



I used textured card that, in turn, created depth once I'd applied my inks

The balloon stamp set is by Clarity, and one I've had for many years.  I've actually used it previously to make flowers

If you click on the link above you'll see the fabulous scenes my fellow DTs have created

Thank you so much for visiting today and for all the lovely comments on yesterday's post

THINKING OF YOU

Good morning crafty friends

At some time or another I think we can struggle making a 'male' card

This one is really quite easy to make and assemble and the wood grain can be achieved with tools you already own

 Going Places Vintage Labels (set of 16 cling stamps) ~ JustRite/Spellbinders


I started with a 13x18cm white card base and for the insert, as shown above,  I cut a smaller piece of white copy paper and applied a second generation stamp of the vehicle using the Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad.
I placed the Happy Birthday stamp from the set on the blank space under the sentiment  and stamped it 
The wood grain affect is achieved by, cutting a piece of white card, (mine measures 9x13.5cm) and scoring it, vertically, then, using my Hougie Board, I scored the card at 1cm increments.  Next, using 'Walnut Stain' Distress Oxide Ink Pad I ran the pad down the scored card
Depending on the amount of pressure you use to ink the card you will see the different effects that can be achieved.
Once inked I buffed the area with a paper towel then backed the card onto a layer of black card.  I wrapped baker's twine' around the topper 3 times and secured it at the back with red line tape

I stamped the vehicle stamp onto white card, fussy cut it and added mounting foam to the back.  I removed the backing from the tape and placed the topper onto the wood grain card, applied Cosmic Shimmer Glue to the back and adhered to the card base

To complete I stamped 'Live Your Dream' to the bottom on the card

There will be an extra post tomorrow, at 9am,  as it's the first of the month and that means a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times (MAWTT)


Thank you for popping by today, I hope my design have given a little inspiration.

I read all your comments and really appreciate you leaving me a message
