OK then. Here's a card:
Nellienoo' by Polka Doodles.]. I loves me a nice simple outlined stamp that I can colour-in like I was 5 again!
Also, this card is evidence of a love affair I'm currently having ...
... with my corner rounder.
For a while it lay abandoned in my drawer but let me tell you ... 2012 has definitely seen the return of the corner-rounder to my papercraft projects. With a vengeance.
In fact I must have a thing for corners in general right now as last week I claimed I was bringing photo-corners back! Not sure what's going on there ... [seriously if I could find a way to crow-bar in some lame joke about "no one putting Baby in a corner-rounder" and also have that lame joke make any sense ... then I'd be doing that right now ...]
The word is from a sheet of 7Gypsies '97%Complete' stickers which, as you might have noticed, are an absolute staple for me - especially on my cards. They're my go-to sentiment/ finishing touch 9 times out of 10 and I love them:
- the papers are from Les Editions InfoCrea and belong to the range currently being given away to one lucky winner here on the 3DJean Design Team blog. If you haven't already added your name to the link-box you've still got until Monday 7th May. It's interesting how completely different the range looks on this card as it's such a small scale and also from picking out just the green elements of the papers.
- the cabochons are also from 3DJean;
- and the seam binding's from The Ribbon Girl.
As for the retro Scandinavian Phrase Book ... that came from a big junk shop in York and was sold to me by a man who swore like a trooper with a stubbed toe, but who could be forgiven as he only charged me£3 for five amazing vintage books which i'd have easily paid more for.
He obviously doesn't read my read my blog ... more fool him ...
Alas, even with the Phrase Book in my possession I still have to read the subtitles while watching The Bridge / The Killing / Borgen etc ...
- have you made any everyday/any occasion cards lately?
- or are you having a re-ignited fling with a long-forgotten craft tool?
- or have you made any feeble jokes based on Dirty Dancing movie quotes too this week?
- bought any amazing vintage books?
Thanks for dropping in.
