Another Stash Card

Saturday was a wash-out! We were under a severe thunderstorm watch all day and some areas were under a tornado watch. We opted to just stay put. I got some more quilting done; did some scrapbooking and made a couple more cards. Yesterday we went for a bike ride at Rondeau – they definitely had rain there – and it was one of those days when it was hot in the sun; cool in the shade. We both had long sleeve blue jean shirts on which was a huge change from the last few weeks of hot and humid weather.

Today’s card is one where I picked up a piece of already die cut cardstock that was in the purple stash bag and decided I had to use it. Sometimes I wonder why I keep giving myself these challenges but here’s what I came up with.


This purple piece was die cut with a Spellbinders die using just the bottom of the die to cut a fancy edge. The rest of the cardstock is brought up over the die so it doesn’t cut anywhere else. It’s a hit and miss type of die cutting! The black was die cut with the smaller of the dies in the same set. The flowers were stamped with Versamark and white embossing powder and then the inside of the flowers were coloured in by inking them with a VersaMark pen and then light purple Perfect Pearls. The ribbon was tied and just glued on. This was all glued on to the designer paper and then onto black cardstock and then on to the card base. The label was stamped on black cardstock with VersaMark and white embossing powder as well – and old Technique Tuesday stamp. I did a quick cut around each bump and attached it with a dimensional glue strip. The sentiment is a peel-off. It needed a little more so tiny pearls were added.  It didn’t turn out too bad and I have another card on hand instead of it all still sitting in the stash.

Don’t forget you are more than welcome to save any cards to your Pinterest account for future reference.

That’s all for a lovely Monday – sunny but not hot and humid. A wonderful way to start the week…. 2016-09-12
