Friends 24-7

6 posts


While browsing the web recently I came across this gorgeous card by Teneale Williams.

It’s an MDS Hybrid creation which means some of it is created in MDS (My Digital Studio) on your computer and some of it is done with traditional stamping (ink & rubber).

As soon as I saw Teneale’s gorgeous card I knew I needed to CASE it.

Here’s mine.

I’ve used a different colour image to Teneale, a different sentiment and used Calypso Coral Bakers Twine rather than white.

This is so pretty in real life.

Here’s the inside.

I left the inside blank as the ‘for you’ sentiment on the front could be utilised for lots of occasions.

The traditional supplies I’ve used for this card are very minimal.

I’ve used 2 sheets of Very Vanilla cardstock, a piece of Victorian Crochet Trim, Calypso Coral Bakers Twine, Crumb Cake ink & dauber, French Foliage stamp set for the splatters (retired) and some dimensionals & adhesive.

The MDS items I’ve used are:

3 different backgrounds from the Bunch of Background Stamp Brush Set,

Floral image from Tea for Two Easel Calendar Template

and the sentiment is from Friends 24-7 Stamp Brush Set.

The sentiment I used was the ‘Here for You’ and I cropped out the ‘Here’.

The Friends 24-7 Stamp Brush Set is included in the Full Version MDS.

Elegant Friends

I’m playing along with a ‘new to me’ sketch challenge today and that is with Creative Sketches. This weeks challenge is #CS22.

This is the sketch provided.

I’m using the Elegant Soiree DSP and coordinating cardstock & ink, along with the Friends 24-7 stamp set.

This is what I came up with.

I really love the colour combination of the Elegant Soiree DSP and it’s been a while since I’ve used the Friends 24-7 stamp set so it was nice to ink it up again.

Stamp sets: Friends 24-7, En Francais
Card: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Versamark, Baja Breeze, Old Olive
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Crochet Trim – Chantilly

I’m hoping to get a few more challenges done today so check back later for more creations.

Till then…..

Here For You

It’s a dreary raining day here in Sydney today but that makes for the perfect day to sit and create. So that’s what I’ve been doing.

I’ve got a list of weekly challenges printed out with dates I need to get them done by and so many of them need to be up in the next few days. To try and get as many of them done as I can, if I can combine a colour and sketch challenge, I do.

Today’s 1st card is doing just that.

I have a new challenge on my agenda that my lovely downline Sandra posted on her blog recently so thought I’d give that one a go. This is the jac-inks Papercraft Challenges challenge #1.

The challenge they have this week is a colour challange.

             Neutrals + one other colour.

For the Sketch Challenge I’ve gone with is this weeks Mojo Monday 177.

I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use for this card, however the initial colours I thought I’d used changed. I’m so glad I did change them though as I really love how this card turned out. It fell together a lot easier than I thought it was going to.

I hope you like it as much as I do.
