It's time for another challenge at Play Date Cafe, and it's an exciting week for us too...
We have Andrea Ewen joining us as our new Private Blend Designer. Andrea does some amazing work with punches, her cards are beautiful.
We also have Sankari Wegman as our celebrity guest designer. Sankari uses lots of colour and I just LOVE what she does with liquid pearls, she makes some fab cards :o) As you know I do like my colour! So please give a big welcome to both of them, and pop on over to their blogs to see what they've created.
The colours this week are a plum, tan and beige. Here's what I came up with...
I have to make a little confession. I really don't like this card at all. It's not very me. I like the colours, so it's not that, it's just a bit plain for me I think, but I couldn't decide what to change. Natasha whipped it out of my hands and said I shouldn't be so critical about it, I should just blog it! Goodness me, my 10 (nearly 11 year old) is turning into a right old bossy boots lol. She goes back to school tomorrow. Aw, I'm really gonna miss her, I hate it when she's back at school, it's so much fun having her around. We have such a giggle, she's very funny.
For the ribbon I tried a technique that Debbie Olsen uses quite often. I've been meaning to try it out for a while, so was pleased when I actually had a go. Another thing off my to do list :o) Thanks for the inspiration Debbie!
So to make the card...
- Mat a plum cardstock base with patterned paper
- Die cut labels in tan and white cardstock
- Stamp two flowers on white die cut label, stamp sentiment
- Punch hole at either side of the label and slot ribbon through, attaching at the back
- Tie bow to side
- Add twine to buttons and fix to card with pop dots
- Hold card out in front of you and frown, wishing you had more time to play and do another one
Papers: Black Market Paper Society 'Let it Bloom', Bazzill Cardstock
Accessories: SU! polka dot ribbon, buttons from stash
