Not my Favourite


Well done Mr Blogger I finally posted a card that wasn't suppose to be posted, it was just a matter of time. So I've quickly deleted that one but I will post one of the few Less is More cards I've made using their sketch.
This is probably my least favourite, I feel its need a frame like my wobbly black and white one I did a couple of weeks ago. It's a Hero Arts stamp called My Type and you know I couldn't do a totally flat card its just not in my nature.
So I cut out the piece of paper and its stuck on the typewriter at the bottom but at the top there a bit of silicone glue to give a bit of lift and the spools are embossed and raised slightly too.
They do get better, well I think so but the weathermen said it would fine later so I will wait till then to attempt to photo them.

  7. Oh my goodness girl...this cards is stunning. I love the typewriter paper raised like that. Do you just use sillicone like you use to calk windows (or a tub).
    hahaha I have silicone on my mind as I scraped out all our old silicone calk around both tubs yesterday and my SIL came and recalked them!
    I like the way you embossed the little spools too.
    It has been so long since I posted or left comments...just haven't had time due to my husband still recovering.
    We are off to the lake on Thursday for a few days of rest and relaxation. I am a wee bit nrevous as the closest hospital is 40 minutes away and i don't drive!!! Yikes!!!
    DH says that is why they have ambulances!
    I am going to bring a wee kit to make some more recycled bird cards in the evenings. I don't have a lot of space as it is just a caravan in a resort community. One bag, some inks for shading, a couple of stamps, my dies and punches already cut in a little baggie
    Hopefully i will get a dozen or so finished off and then I can finally retire that particular card theme!!!
    Although I haven't been leaving comments, I have peeked at favorite blogs at times. You have had some lovely cards posted. I am always amazed at how much you get accomplished! You are an inspiration as I have some mobility issues due to arthritis too. Add in a terrible car accident and some times I don't get too much done.

  27. It may not be your style of card but you've made a brilliant job of it and put your stamp on it (no pun intended) by decoupaging some elements. I think it's great.

  31. You may not like this card much but I think it's great. CAS cards are, for me, the most difficult cards to make ... it's knowing when to stop that's the problem but I think you've done a fab job and I like the dimension you have given the 'paper' in the typewriter. Elizabeth

  33. I think its a great card, Debby but you may be right; even an embossed frame around the image might make it stand out a little more or perhaps if the image wasn't centred. I have a similar stamp (or maybe the same one even) and I bought it to do something similar but I've always been too scared. Silly really - its not like if I can't make it work, I would have ruined a lot of precious stash. Hugs, Lesley
