This is whats left over after playing with my new stuff!
The blue butterfly die in the picture, I received in the mail earlier in the week. Most places I went to were sold out but I did find one online store that had them! Yay! It’s by Marianne Designs.
As I mentioned yesterday, when I went to pick up my prize I HAD to take some more stuff home with me. The new Primas papers stopped me in my tracks. I resticted myself to just four pieces, only because something else caught my eye, and had a fairly hefty price tag on it, and I really wanted it. It was the Doona Downey ‘Insightful Meadows’ by Unity Stamps.
I was staying at my mother’s place in the city that night, but I wanted to get into using this right away. And to justify my NEED to make a card with these new things, I created a card for a visiting Japanese student billeting with my mother. I made it for him right before his eyes in about 15 minutes ( he was suitable impressed), and asked that he give it to his mother. Then I went and made one for me.
The Prima paper is in fact quite a heavy cardstock so it made a perfect card base. I used pigment inks to stamp all the images in the bottom left of the card. I’d taken my cuttlebug for the sleep over ( What? You don’t do that?) and I die cut the butterfly and the trim out of the same papers.
Three things that make me happy – pretty paper, stunning stamps and delectable dies. And you know what else makes me happy – when my boyfriend can’t take his eyes off of it because he is amazed at it’s loveliness. ♥Sigh♥ “Best yet”, he said. I’ll admit that the papers really do most of the work here, but I’ll take some credit. 😉
Have a great day all!
