We are starting off with the theme of Shape it up! That means we want to see anything but square/rectangular cards this week. Square with a twist will be fine like the lovely shaped cards my teamies has made to inspire you all.
For my card have I used the first new image of the year called Pixi Caramel Macchiato. I have used the pre coloured version as there really was no time to colour this time around. Besides that does Veronicas fantastic digital colouring deserve more attention. Maybe I should use the pre-coloured ones more often?
I decided to go round with my card this week. I am glad you didn't hear me when I tried to cut the spellbinder with the frame on it. It wasn't nice and it wasn't pretty. But I beat that die even if it took time. Truth to be told I need a bigger die cut mashine but they are both expensive and take up tons of room and I don't have that. I even find it hard to store my Big Shot. LoL
I used some lovely blue/turquise cardstock together with a mega old paper pad called Rose Garden. I think it's from Papermania. You don't see much of it but I also managed to use a few border stripes and die cuts from the same paper pad. Taking some inspiration from all the scrapbooking you tube videos I have been watching lately. Always with the thought in mind that I will do more LO's for the albums instead of just buying more stuff to my over crowded scraproom. If it's working? Naae, but at least I dared to try out some embellishments that I wouldn't have gone for otherwise. Maybe I should realize that I am a card maker and not a scrapbooker of photos. LoL
Anyway, there is some details added to the card with two different kind of glitter stickles, some twine, some lace, some pearls and some distress ink as well.
So this is all from me for today. I will now rest for a while and hope to get my back ready to work again. It has been many hours by the computer lately and it will not ease down just yet. But for now I am done.
Take care and do something that makes you happy! And don't forget to play with us over at the Paper Shelter this week.
Love n hugs
