Comfort Crafting.



Not too much going on in my neck of the woods.  Just lots of rain, humidity and annoying mosquitoes here.  Par for the course, I suppose, for mid summer in Sydney Australia.  Well, I guess the upside to all this wet is that I have been given plenty of opportunity to try things with my light box or light tent as some say, in attempts to get this whateveryoucallit to work for me.  Nowhere near mastery, but I am noticing the differences a bit of tweaking makes.  I still have much further East to fly towards total enlightenment, but I'm giving it a whirl.  Bit Zen, hey?

This card is made entirely from Spellbinders Labels 4 dies (The Grand Labels 4, Labels 4 and Labels 4 Small).  Such a cool shape.  I love it's vintage look.  This shape of Nestabilities die paired with one of my favorite Waltzingmouse stamp sets called Rescue Remedies does a happy crafter make.  I know, I know.  I do blab on about this stamp set, but it is just that good.  It doesn't need much beyond stamping to make it look pretty sweet, I reckon.  Or should I say, it is a set that takes a fair bit for me to make look bad...more to the point.  *wink*

Thanks for swinging by.   Here's to an inspired day for us all!

Such a sweet card with yummy layers! Love the pop of pink & yellow against the subtle-colored layers. And i love the big ribbon and the pearl in the middle.

The card is as sweet as the label. I love a shaped card, and yours is perfect. The bow and flowers are fantastic. You are making me think that I need that stamp set....I fear my WM list may get as long as my PTI list.

I love shaped cards....and the pretty pinks you used...and the gorgeous ribbon...and and and...the wooshing of paint....and and and...I love all things Waltzingmouse; although I find their rates and their shipping charges a tad on the high side for a non-stampy girl like myself - ha.
