So these cards started off as a challenge under friends. Some Skyping was involved, as well as lots of good laughs and lovely chatting! And a card recipe of course! We were to use (I hope I get this right): black and/or white, plus one extra color (and/or shades of that color), enamel dots, shapes, stamp. Here is what I did:
Now I still have several Studio Calico kits from previous years which urgently need to get scrapped/used, so I dug through them and found all these lovely bits and pieces. Only the felt bow is by Bella Blvd and quite new, everything else is from kits I used to order “back then”. Oh, and the black paper is by SODALICIUOS.
The 3 cards with pink, yellow and blue color I did according to the recipe (we were only to do one, but I could not stop there). And the last one is mainly in black and white – this one I kept for later, all the others are in the mail, or were delivered personally to my scrappy friends :-). And what did I notice, I quite enjoyed creating after a recipe for a change. Someone else giving orders and making plans and me just following those. So much fun! And another surprise – I really, really like my clean & simple style cards!!! Quite much actually. I hope that the recipients will like them too.
The best part? The chatting and giggling with like minded people! Always the best bit!! Have missed that recently. It has been too long since the last time. And again I have to say that this hobby would be only half as fun without all the friends I´ve gotten through it!
Happy crafting, lovelies!!!
