Sending Love & Hugs

Hi there my crafty friends!  I selectedd a piece of pixied card from my background stash that used Midnight Blue and Aqua Lagoon.  I used an older stamp to add some detail all the way around the edges of the pixied piece.  It was the Orange Blossom Leaves stamp stamped in black archival ink.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to cut a white mat then I added a piece of pixied card done out of just Midnight Blue on top of it.  I used the Petite Peony Cluster cut in white twice and attached them diagonally across opposite corners, then I added blue flowers cut from some leftover pixied card.  I cut the Sending Love & Hugs sentiment in white and glued it in the centre.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/4" in size. 

On a another quick note, see Jamie Rodgers on HobbyMaker demonstrate exclusive launches of the brand new Cosmic Shimmer Glossy Glaze colours and Creative Expressions Foundations Mixed Card Pack! Tune in on Sky 670, Freeview 73, Freesat 807 and via the HobbyMaker website and YouTube.

Hi Sue. What a delightfully simple card today, just showing that often less really is more. Love the delicate stamped leaves adding interest to the background.

Hi Sue, a great card and the mix of Midnight Blue and Aqua Lagoon is lovely. Stamping on pixies I haven't yet tried but it looks to be most effective.
Thanks for the heads-up on Jamie's shows, I will set the box to record.

Beautiful card Sue!!

CCM said...

A different background than your usual style, which I like. And I also like to see old dies used, because it reminds us to find them.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
