It's the start of a brand new crafting week and as always, a week in the life of a crafter is a busy one. So many new products that are always tempting and I just wish I could have them all but unfortunately, the bank manager wouldn't be too pleased with me if I did. But I have got some new Tim Holtz dies that I will be playing with and I've also got some new Kraftin Kimmie stamps, that arrived Saturday from the wonderful Dies To Die For.
As for today's card...well, I think it's one of my favourite cards that I've made for a while. It features one of the newly released rubber stamp designs from Leanne Ellis, which are available from Funky Kits and they are FABULOUS!!!
You might also have noticed the paper flower and leaves, in the corner of the card. I made these, by hand, using Spellbinders Shapeabilites Flower Creations 3 and Assorted Leaves dies. At first, I hesitated as to whether I should invest in these Die Cuts. Yes, they are quite expensive and every penny counts but I am so glad that I did. There is just so much I'll be able to do with them and using them in conjunction with Distress Inks and patterned paper, they just make an absolutely stunning addition to any card!
The backing papers I used are from K & Company and I coloured the image in using Promarker Pens. Together with some finishing touches of glitter, ribbon and adhesive stones, I am just so pleased with how this card turned out...I LOVE it!!!
