Day 23 – 30 Days Of Card Making

Simple stamping and die-cutting helped make today’s make hassle-free…

Regular readers of this blog will know why I am doing this mini challenge in order to reunite my mojo with my craft space. To follow the full journey, you can find all related post in the 30 Days Of Card Making archive.

Ok, on with today’s creation.

This one started out with a large background stamp – a gingham design. It was stamped out with dye ink and then cut into panels which were edged with the same inkpad.

“We” used the same ink pad to create a sheet of coloured cardstock from which the floral elements were die-cut.

The sentiment was stamped and die cut, then inked around the edges. The gentle inking again didn’t quite make it into the photo – really think it’s time I took a look at getting a new one.

Anyhoo, everything was fixed to the front of the card using either glue or foam pads and all of a sudden, done!

Only a week left of this challenge and I am very surprised at how well it is going given that I felt that I wouldn’t make it past the first week.

Hope you are still enjoying these posts.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thanks for reading today’s progress. Hope you will join me tomorrow to see how mojo, craft space and I get on with your journey.

Much love,

J x.

    I think your mojo and your craft space are getting quite close, just got to organise all 3 of you now. That’s a very pretty card today, the sort I like, but don’t very often achieve. xx
