Hi friends, how are you? I hope you’re ready for another The Three Amigos post, because today is Tuesday.
Have you noticed that it’s almost December? It’s that time of year when I start wishing that November and December had two months each; or maybe start doing everything in September… that would do, as well :).
The card that I made for this post intends to represent the coziness and warmth of the season.
With that purpose in mind, I created a knitted background using a folder and die combo from Marianne Design. In this case I just needed the die to create a stencil, and then used translucent embossing paste + Judi Kins Iridescent Sparkle EP. The cross stitched elements (circles and lines) are both My Favorite Things. The plaid paper, flowers and ephemera are all Prima, from the gorgeous Sweet Peppermint Collection. I have a huge crush for that sweet little bird… isn’t he adorable? The little guy is holding a nice and warm cup of tea, recently made just for you :). The sentiment is from a brand that I absolutely LOVE – Waltzing Mouse – unfortunately out of business. I stamped it using Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Matt Dull powder. The white sparkling die cut shape on the left is from Simply Graphic, dies trio nordique.
See you soon for the:
Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Dec 9 – Dec 16
National Cocoa Day 12/13
International Tea Day 12/15
I guess some of you already know my “thing” for mood boards and also for mixed media, shabby chic, texture, 3D flowers and layered goodness. I’ve been seeing some unbelievably “beauty full” challenge mood boards that I just NEED to enter. This card is great to submit to the following challenges:
Scraplya November Challenge – We are supposed to have at least one of these three elements in our work, and I have two of them :):
1) knitted items
2) cups or mugs
3) houses in any form
Scrapogoliki Blog – The theme is “Texture New Year” – This is a four staged challenge and is currently in the 2nd stage, “Knitted” is the code word for this phase. The 1st one was all about “Wood”. If you wish to play along, you can join in any time, even if you haven’t entered a previous stage.
Scrapclub-kamchatka Blog – Mood board “Nature/Winter” – I was inspired by the overall mood and the cozy feeling of those beautiful images in particular.
Thank you for stopping by.
