Cards & Things

I love things in threes and this sketch is no exception!
The images are from Stampin' Up's Pocket Silhouettes set and they are so versatile. Here they have been simply stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and cut with rectangular Nesties, embossed and then sponged with ink whilst still in the die. Mounted on another piece of card with some chocolate ribbon  and edged with a little more ink.
Job done... and the finished card pleases me (not all my cards do and a fair proportion get slung in the bin if I'm not happy)

  3. Lovely! Like the sponging done inside the die - really effective Chrissie and something else I'm going to have to try!
    PS - Can't believe you make cards you don't like... I think they're all brilliant!

  10. This is beautiful, I love that chocolate colour, and how you have sponged the edges. Could you do a tip/tutorial on the Less is More site, as I do seem to struggle with the sponging effect - mine always turns out boxy, but yours is lovely and smooth. xx

  16. I like this composition of your card - its very effective - especially because they are monotone. Does this qualify for your LIM challenge this week? LOL
