Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

LIM Sketch

Im really happy with the sketch but the sentiment which is wood mounted and was stamped parallel to the bottom of the card has come out wonky, so following Chrissies wonderful idea, new sentiment layered over old one!..i made myself use scraps and punches that haven't been aired for a while...that will have to be my promise to myself...stop reaching for the fave's and try to use everything...but not all on one card!  Anyhoo here it is
Im entering this card into the following challenges;

Less is More - sketch
Jules snippet challenge

As this is NOT a One Layer Card week, why don't you re-stamp your sentiment onto another piece of card and then mount it over the one already there... in that way you'll be able to get it straight and further to the left... just as you wanted!
It's a lovely card though!
Thanks so much

Mandi said...

Oh, the times I do that, re stamp and mount over the top. Funny how we can stamp so many times, then as soon as it;s straight on the card, disaster strikes!
Well rescued, FAB card, love the orange
Thank you

Orange is my favorite color. Your card is great but it would be cute to have little ribbons hanging from each of the balloons. :)

Beautiful idea for using the corner punches! I'm going to try that! And I love the card too!

Jules said...

Hi Debs

I quite often have to do that life saving rescue technique LOL!!

It is surprising just how many stamps are not actually lined up as shown on the wooden block .. .. .. I have one that is actually up-side-down LOL!!!.

Great colour combo on this one Debs and I love how you have used your corner punch.

Thank you for keeping me company this week in my war against the snippets!!!

Love Jules xx

Helene said...

Love the card and the colour combos. I have so many misaligned wooden stamps that I prefer to stick to unmounted or clear stamps these days.
