This is the last of this style girl, I have already blogged the other two cards, I really really love this stamp. She reminds me a bit of a western girl, like a can can girl in the salloon, but also she reminds me of an oriental girl too! weird eh?
I am really pleased with both cards, both are simple (thats what I do right?) this one was coloured in Green and oranges, Darren chose green as I was running out of colour ideas and I threw in the orange colour. The background paper is Spided Cider from Stampin' Up! the colours were perfect for it. Then I used some of the SU punches and stamps to match. I feel the whole things work so well as SU really do think about their products and how they should work together. The cardstock is Really Rust it matches the paper perfectly, the stamped flowers are stamped on the same coloured card and then punched with the co-ordinating punches. Its my idea of easy crafting and does take some of the colour matching problems out of making cards. Yes I know I am a SU demo, I would say that wouldnt I? LOL but for me I really remembered tonight why I signed up to be a demo and what drew me to SU products. I know its not a SU stamp, but thats OK, SU demo are allowed to love other things! LOL I know there are SU fans out there, as there are SU haters too... each to their own and live and let live thats what I say, there is room for us all ;0) - soapbox packed away and sickbags available by sending SAE
Here is the "last" of the LE designs (from this range of 3)
And now for my First... my First "Scrap-ling" Ain't she cute? So what a Scrap-ling I hear you say... well basically its a small thin card made using the scraps that you get when cutting a piece of in the UK's instance a A4 piece, down from A4 to a card blank size. My "usual" cards are all made using A4 and cutting to 5 3/4" square, this is the piece that is left. Its a fab idea to use these pieces and they make cute cards for tags, little notes and even a bookmark. I used the same stamp, coloured in lilacs, I used a scrap piece of lilac left over from another project, punched words and scallop from other scraps. Added some purple "Card Candy" dots and viola! done a cute card and my first Scrap-ling.
