The latest release at My Favourite Things was fabulous - I absolutely love the ornaments and sheet music stamp. This card is 6¼" × 4½", but it open as a landscape card - so I had to make it specially. I cut two sections of card the front being 6 3/4" × 4½" and the back 6¼" × 4½". I scored the front card ½" from the end and folded over, applied strong adhesive and attached the back of the card and allowed it to dry. I made the front by stamping the music background all over the white panel and adhering it to some Pink Pirouette card. I die cut the ornament banner and stamped a selection of the baubles in different shades of pink. I finished the front with a bold sentiment. On the inside there's a mat of pale pink and on the white panel a bold sentiment with a couple of baubles hanging down.
I used a couple of challenges to make this card. Over at Jingle Belles - JB:13:21 they would like us to make a Christmas card in pink - it is after all Breast Cancer awareness month. Stef and Lauren have very generously made the following pledge:
" For each newly made holiday card that you link up, we'll donate $4 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation."
This is a brilliant cause - go along and make a pink Christmas card and link up. The layout is sort of based on the current layout from Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL262, although I turned it on its side and put the sentiment horizontally too.
I'm sure I'm not the only one to spend some time browsing Pinterest and pinning pictures to my boards. Well, recently I pinned a storage idea from Sharon - showing how she stored her Copics. I rather liked the unit she used, so immediately visited Studio 3 Solutions to check it out. I ordered the unit on Sunday and it arrived yesterday afternoon. I'm thrilled to bits with it. It's neat, compact, beautifully made and holds all my Copics with space for more!
That's all for now. Looks like it's going to be another dull day - with more rain. Take care, see you soon.
