Just A Note Card.
Not much crafting time was had over the last two weeks of the precious papery kind. I had a huge festival showcasing and selling my handmade gemstone bracelets. Needless to say, I was busy, busy, busy in the lead up to the festival solely beading my little heart out. The four day festival is now over until the next one in May 2012, so I can now get back to my regular scheduled and oh so beloved papercrafting. Ahhhh.
I made this card last month. Not sure what inspired it, but I do recall having fun using stamps from an Australian company called Darkroom Door. All of the correspondance-like images on the green background are from them. Darkroom Door is certainly a company worth looking into if you are after quality red rubber, more photo-realistic type images. The floral image edging the green card base is from Unity's Itty Bitty line (also red rubber) presenting the delightful Unity and Webster's collaboration and it's called Beauty.
I also must confess that I adore that whopper of a label from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Well, anything from Waltzingmouse Stamps will usually send me and that's no great secret, but this one in particular is pretty special in my estimation. It's from a wonderful set called Vintage Labels 18, which coordinates with the Spelbinders label of the same name. Divine.
The remainder of the card was put together with various other nifty bits and bobs from my papercrafting collection. But the last of the nifty bits that bares mentioning is, just how cool wired ribbon is. Love the stuff. I know it may be a bit shiny for some, but if you pick your colors right, you will absolutely adore how easy it is to get a half decent bow when using this ribbon piped with a fine edging wire. No crush, no fuss. I got the several rolls I have from my local sewing shop in their haberdashery section. Isn't the word haberdashery so cool? Haberdashery. Haberdashery. Haberdashery. Haberdashery. Love it!
Silly aren't I? But really, thanks so much for stopping by. I do appreciate each and every one of your visits so. Here's to an inspired day!
