My first birthday card for this year and it's going into my stash. That's right, I'll have a stash from now on LOL. Let's see how far I get with that, but I really am trying to never again get into the situation that Christmas or a birthday sneaks up on me behind my back and I have no, zero, nada cards at hand to send out. That was the most embarassing experience ever with all the cards I did get last Christmas.
So, here it is, the foundation for my stash LOL. The Tilda und Snowman card I showed last week might go in there as well, not sure yet. Depends if I am able to com up with another card during the week.
Today is my father's birthday, actually. But I haven't his card ready yet. I find cards for man really, really, really damn hard to make, but I finally go an idea on Sunday and I'll try to finish this card today. Wish me luck *gg*
Enough random babbling for now:
Stamps: Magnolia & Lili of the Valley
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & Summer Sky, Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Cardstock: My forever trusty pearlescent cardstock and my no name white cardstock
Design Paper: Nitwit Cottage Charm Too
Coloring: Copics (Face: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20, R21; Hair: E30, E31, E33; Clothes: B32, B34, B41, E44, E47; Balloon: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17), Spica Glitter Pens
Dies: Nellie Snellen
Flowers: Wild Orchid Craft
Ribbon: White Satin Ribbon 3mm from stash, died with Copic B41
Other: Paper Doily Heart from stash, Glimmer Mist Denim Blue, selfmade shimmer spray on the flowers
Submitted to the following challanges:
Wild Orchid Craft - Lets get sentimental -- for obvious reasons *g*
Just Magnolia & hÄnglar challenge - My Favourite Things -- This is my favourite stamp from the last Magnolia kit, my favorite die and out of my doilies, the heart shaped ones are a favourite as well.
Stampin' for the Weekend - New & Blue.... -- Hoping that the combination with brown isn't a problem. And I used new stash on this card, since this Magnolia stamp is a recent addition to my collection and I haven't used it before.
