A Little Mixed Bunch

Somehow I got behind! *smiles*  For one reason or another postings didn’t get done for the last couple of days.  I think my ‘Golden Years’ are quickly becoming ‘tarnished’!! lol

Here’s the other brown and white card I promised you last Tuesday ~


I really like the Mixed Bunch stamp set from the  current Occasions Mini Catalog.  I think the possibilities are endless. 

I tried my hand at ‘off set stamping’ on one of the images.  First stamping it in Early Espresso and then using my stamp-a-ma-jig to off set the next time stamping it in Whisper White.  The ‘hello’ is from the hostess set -Posy Punch - using a white gel pen to highlight the dots.  I used the Blossom punch with Early Espresso Cardstock to provide it’s background.

There was enough going on with the main focal point, which led me to believe I wanted the centers of the other two images to be simple.  By using my 1/2” circle punch I was able to leave off the dotted circle around the starburst image, while the bow took care of the other image’s center.

Looking a little closer ~

Pfftt! I give up! You are too good for me! lol. You have created a masterpiece yet again, with just two colours and two stamps! I'm just not worthy. I'm also not getting any cards made! My mojo has gone missing. If you find it, will you send it back please. Stupid mojo!

LeAnne said...

OOh, very classic creation you've got going here! Tarnished? I don't think so?

Linda said...

Ummm - yeah...I agree with everyone else (including the part about the stupid mojo).

This is just beautiful Linda! At first I wasn't even thinking about getting this set and the punch but you and others have convinced me that I HAVE to have it! Love what you've done with it! Enjoy our beautiful day today, I hear it's going up to 75 today!

Once again, you have created a super card without overdoing it.
I love your talent.

Linda, you have again managed to make the perfect card. If you're "tarnished" I'm completely rusted

Ok, I should have gotten this set! This is definitely an enabling card, Linda! It has pushed me over the edge ... I'm thinking I need to place another order.

I'm glad I'm not the only forgetting to post my cards ... LOL. I'm always missing a challenge deadline. :)
