Brrrrr how cold is it still!!?
Spent 2 hours getting to work on Monday morning and it was a horrendous journey. But I survived the white knuckle ride through Flocton & Grange Moor. The car in front of me spun round at one point which made me shake even more.
Hope you are coping OK with the bad weather?
I can never guarantee having the time to join in with all the challenges most of my crafting buddies do, so decided to set my own challenge! To make a mans card using a full colour family!!! Mmmmm, maybe next time I will use an easier challenge that others have set (LOL).
I punched out the stars and then stamped the star image from the Darling Dots (Hostess Level 1 set). I used the same ink colours as the punched stars and then cut them out by hand. Then used dimentionals to mount them onto the co-ordinating star.
The rings are made using the 1 3/8 circle punch then putting the cardstock back into the 1 3/4 curcle punch, lining it up so there is the same amount of space all round the cutting area and punching it out. A little fiddly, but it gives you a perfect and really thin ring. The rings are glued behind each star.
Finally I used the Word Window punch and used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the Happy Birthday sentiment (from the Happy Moments Sale A Bration offer).
Cardstock - all 12 colours from the Earth Elements colour family, Kraft & Whisper White.
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Creamy Caramel & Old Olive.
Punches - Star, Word Window, 1 3/8 and 1 3/4 Circles
Just shows how well all the colours in the family co-ordinate - 14 different colours used on one card!!! Whats ts the maximum number of colours you have used on a card?
