Live Laugh Love

Hi guys!  This one is a bit different for me, but I just adore this die set called Buntings and Buttons from Just Rite stamps. First thing, I stamped my sentiment in the lower corner using a black Archival ink pad on coconut white card . I embossed it using my Cascading Hearts embossing folder.  I matted it with a thin red mat to set it off a bit.  Next I cut several of the different buntings out of red, white and black card.  I stamped a few of them with the matching stamps in black, others I left blank and one of them, I inked.  I used a Snow cap Adirondack pad through the die on the black card.  I really like the way it gives it a blackboard effect.  I stamped the individual banners with different letters to spell the word "friend."  I glued the buntings across the card, crisscrossing them at different angles.I added small bows tied from Bakers Twine in red or black as accents.  Just to give the card a more playful feel, I added some red and black buttons to the bottom as embellishments.  I finished it off with my piercing around the edge of a double white mat.  I love the way these buntings could be used for so many occasions, don't you? Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Tres said...

Hi Sue. A very unusual bright and fun card for today !! I was not to sure about the bunting dies and stamps but I love the card you have made with them. I am not to sure they are something I will use that often but I think they may be a good idea for my step daughters birthday as I think this is the sort of thing she would like to make cards with. It is more her style. I think we would probably both use it for scrap booking projects so as I am writing this I think it will be added to the wish list !! Have a great time with your mum. Lots of love Tres x x x

Hi Sue

I thought the same as Heather T, but when I saw your cards on Sunday with all the lovely ways the buntings were used I had to purchase them. I can't wait for all my goodies to arrive. I think I will have to be dragged screaming out of my workroom. I can feel take aways coming on...who wants to stand in a really hot kitchen when you can be in the workroom playing. :-)

Hello Sue, This is a really fun card - jolly and bright. BUT I have to confess I do not like buttons, I've have a thing about them (Phobia) since I was a child can't explain why - There's always one who has to be different!

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue,
Todays cards takes me back to being small and watching all the carnival floats go past and gather at the big park for Gala Day, loved by children OLD and young alike. I think this card would bring back happy memories to most adults of a certain age that took part on the floats dressed up or just following behind them to the park for the annual great playtime where everybody joined in.
Sorry that's diverting from your beautiful card which has just the right amount of bunting to make it look great. Thank you once more,
Love and crafty hugs

You are not the only one. I too hate buttons and as for second-hand ones - uugh. Have NONE on any clothes, just metal whotsits on jeans which I can cope with.
Won't admit publicly as it is seriously weird. Just thinking about touching them makes me feel sick. What a couple of saddos we are. However, it's not life threatening or harming anyone else.
Heaven help us.
