... as you know we're running our challenges for two weeks over the summer period, and this is week two of CR84FN35 with our cooler colours of lavender, celery and grey - and they are proving to be very popular with lots of entries so far. You've got plenty of time to join the fun!
You all know that I am a huge fan of Waltzingmouse Stamps - well recently Claire and the Design Team reviewed the newly issued sets in the Stamp of Approval Parade - SOAPs!! At the end of the SOAPs there is a competition to CASE - that is Copy and Share Everything - we pick a card to CASE and then enter the competition. There are so many fabulous cards created that it's hard to pick only one, so I've cased two cards - one by Sandie Dunn and one by Kate Whelan.
I decided to use a square card (like Sandie) and cut out green and white mats. On the white card I found the centre point and used an oval, the cross and silhouette heads from Cameo Creations to make the backing paper. I cut several oval mats in , metallic lavender, green, white and lavender to make the central decoration. On the plain lavender card I stamped another oval and sentiment in grey. Finally, I threaded some grey organza ribbon through the beaded oval. This was much easier to make than I initially thought - and I thoroughly enjoyed making my own backing paper like this!!
