With Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For my woven background, I used one of the stamps from the Justrite Playful Painted Trio Stamp Set. I stamped in several times onto Coconut White Card using CS Colour Clouds - in Frosted Aqua, Lilac Whisper, Baked Peach, Summer Sky and Frosted Aqua again. I made sure the ink was dry and cut Sue Wilson's Classic Weaving Die into it.

I cut Sue's Striped Weaving Die out of Aqua, Lilac, Peach and Sky Blue Card. I cut them into pairs of strips and wove them through the Classic die cut. There are plenty of strips left to make another 2 - 3 backgrounds.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4  out of Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B. I added it to my background using 3D  Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Aqua Card using Sue's Trailing Ivy Die Set.

I made a flower out of Sky Blue and Custard Card using Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set. For the centre of the flower, I cut one of Sue's Dandelion Clocks Dies out of Lilac Card and added an 8mm White Pearl.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Blooming Heart Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using die #1 from Sue's Classic Adorned Rectangles. I cut die #2 from the same set out of Aqua Card.

I finished my card bu adding a couple of mats of Coconut White Card and a 5mm White Pearl to the corners of my frame.

  12. Morning Julia, And they're back - yaaaaay !! I love this, the colours are so pretty and the weaving is 'stunning'. At first sight, I thought you had used papers from Phill's paper pads, and upon closer look and reading your description realised you had stamped the papers and used different colours - genius !! This is a fabulous card.
    I hope you had a lovely day yesterday with your Mom and Dad.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  21. Hi Julia. This has got to be my favourite! I'm probably being a bit thick though, but I'm still trying to work out your stamping and how you got the spacing of the colours. Hope I work it out soon as it's driving me mad. SueL x
