Social Stamping – Friend

Image may contain: text

I’m have enjoyed being part of Kelly’s Social Stamping project over the past month and am playing along again this week.

The theme this week is “Friend”.   I must admit, it’s been strange not connecting with my friends, in the usual way over the past few weeks.   I’ve still stayed connected….just not face to face.  The cards I have put together this week will be sent to my friends in the next few days.

The first card I have made, is for a friend that love Pinks and Blues.  It’s using the Daisy Lane Stamp Set with Melon Mambo and Pacific Point Ink.   I used the Medium Daisy Punch to cut them out.

Then I made a couple of versions of a card I received from Carolyn Tullett recently.   Carolyn’s card is the Blue and Pink one below.  It’s so sweet, with lovely touches of glitter and tiny pearls.   It’s been sitting on my craft desk in front of me and I look at it daily.

So my versions of Carolyn’s card use the Beautiful Friendship Stamp set (Granny Apple Green / Mango Melody / Flirty Flamingo and the Floral Essence Stamp Set (Pumpkin Pie / Mango Melody / Night of Navy).

So – what`s been happening in lock down this week??  Well…..
1.   While quietly working at the kitchen table, I was visited by a little friend!
2.   I went to the local park for a walk / exercise…and I was the only one there!
3.   I decided to record (so I can remember) that all the play / exercise equipment is closed.

Just Add Ink # 489 – Colour Combo

Hi there,  well it’s the end of the working week for me and we are heading into a long weekend (due to Australia Day).  That means the possibility of time for crafting……sound good?  I think so!

To inspire you in your crafting this weekend – you can join the Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s a fun and bright colour Challenge.

I made 2 cards for this Challenge……..

For the first card I chose the Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Call Me Clover colours.
To be honest, I didn’t really have any Call Me Clover Ink, so I have to substitute it with another colour.  The one I have used is actually Old Olive – although with the water colour technique I have used, it looks less Olive.

For the second card, I chose Bermuda Bay (love this colour), Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight.

I used the same stamp set, ribbon and a frame on both cards.  The stamp set is called Beautiful Friendship.

So head on over to Just Add Ink and check out all the Design Team creations and then share yours with us too.
