Hi all and hope you are enjoying a happy MayDay
I’m sharing a card today that I’ve made for a friend’s birthday and I combined the new Trend-Alert Tuesday idea…. I expect it’s a trend you might have spotted a bit of in the crafting world (especially if you’re a Pinterest fan!)….
Here’s my card…
The mason jar journaling piece is cut from an American Crafts ‘Dear Lizzy – Neopolitan’ sheet. An easy stylish accent for this trend. I love that the Neoopolitan line has lots of mason jar accents (and a super-cute stamp) but it is hard to find in stock at any of the scrapbooking stores in the UK.
I added the sentiment to that journaling spot using October Afternoon alphas. And added a bit of Glossy Accents to the printed heart detail. Which sadly doesn’t show up in my pics.
And the rest of the card uses….
- new Pink Paislee paper from ‘Indigo Bleu’ 6x6pack – love the shabby grey-green
- ‘Trendy Tape’ washi by Queen & Co
- cutest-ever panda clear stamp (by Imaginisce) and heat embossed with black glitter powder (American Crafts Zing)
- punched butterfly (Martha Stewart Crafts) with a pearl
- white gel pen doodling.
Back soon with an update on real pandas That is, to share a couple of photos from our weekend away to Edinburgh, where we made sure to visit the zoo which has a new pair of giant pandas. Awesomeness.
Bye for now, Rx
