Divine felt

Ahhhhhh......I love PTI wool felt. It's so gorgeous and dies cut through it like a dream! I have to admit I'm a bit of a hoarder with some of my craft supplies, and I think PTI felt will be one of those things I won't break into as often. That is, unless I have a spare roll of felt handy. I really must break this habit. Any suggestions? :)

Enough rambling and on to a card. I used a past FTL sketch (#101) and my new Beautiful Blooms II dies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Did I mention...

that I'm addicted to PTI's Beautiful Blooms II dies? I've only used one of the three die sets so far and without any of the matching stamps. But I loooooooooove them!

Apologies for the crummy photography, but I didn't get a chance to photograph the card in natural light. Now for exhibit #2.

Some people think that black is an unlucky colour to use on a birthday card, but it really makes the colours pop. Thankfully, the person I gave it to didn't care. I'm so addicted to PTI, they're awesome and I can't get enough of their products!

Can't get enough of.......

Beautiful Blooms II dies from PTI! They're so addictive, especially paired with the leaves/stem image from Four of a Kind. My mojo has been missing for the longest time, so it feels awesome to make something that I'm happy with. I know I'm a bit late for the FTL 103 sketch, but I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon anyway. Their sketches are always fantastic, and this one really got my brain working.

Ahhhh.....I revel in the joy when you love a card that you've made, especially after a long break from stamping. This card makes me happy!

Where are you, Mojo?

Hello everyone! Apologies for the shocking neglect of my blog, but it's been really crazy at work and at home. The good news is that I'm getting a new bedroom/craft room that is bigger and will have more storage space! It's taken a lot of planning (about 4-5 months) and effort but I'm nearly there and about ready to move in, give or take a few weeks. Basically, my weekends have been spent cleaning, buying furniture, varnishing wood furniture and organizing a time for tradies to come in. I'll have plenty of photos uploaded when everything finally comes together!

I haven't had much time (or mojo) to make anything, but I CASEd an awesome card that Becky Carafa posted on the Clean & Simple blog.

My version isn't as glam as Becky's is, but it didn't turn out too bad. I had to change the colours as I didn't have any of the PTI inks that she used, but I should have stamped the middle stripe with pale plum ink instead of perfect plum. Oh well.

Hope you're all staying nice and warm or cool depending where you are! It's a chilly and windy day here in Adelaide and I'm very thankful for my column heater. Thanks for stopping by!
