I have been wanting to show you another card we did at our stamping day 2 weeks ago. It has just taken some time to get back here with my daughter sick all week. I had to put this card together really quickly on our Stamping Day.
After a yummy lunch by Leonie we had about 1/2 hour left before I had to go. After chatting for a few more minutes we thought we could do another card, couldn’t we???? After deciding what we would do, we had 20 minutes left!! We had chosen a sketch challenge from Clean and Simple stamping, (number 27, seen here). Tracey picked the colours from the Colour Coach:
Wild Wasabi Marina Mist Early Espresso
The clock was ticking!!!!!
It took me another few minutes to decide how I was going to do the card and what stamps to use. These things take time, you know! The race was on – 15minutes to go!
I cut a strip of Wild Wasabi card and wanted to run the strip through the Big Shot but because our card is a different length it wouldn’t emboss the whole length. I tried to fix it up by going back the other way but it wasn’t going to work. PANIC! I ran it through the crimper both ways but that didn’t look right. 10 minutes to go!!!
I cut and stamped and scrunched, card was flying everywhere. It was pandemonium. The heart was racing and time was running out……………
Here is the final card.
Ok, so I didn’t quite get it finished before I left. I couldn’t leave my daughter stranded at the school gate! It was all stamped. I just had to glue it all together when I got home and I added the twine too. I don’t think it is too bad considering the rush. I love this colour combo. I will have to use these colours again sometime.
I have so many projects that I have been working on to show you, especially with the Extreme sets. I will endeavour to get back here more often this week – all being well in our household!
Have a Happy Week!
