And I think I will try doing some of Kristina's challenges now on, so that I don't go wrong with the colors and I have a nice palette every week. I do look up all color challenges every week, but somehow when I sit down to make a card, I choose whatever suits my fancy at that moment.
Coming back to today's card. I love this stamp. It is from a new clear stamp set I bought recently. And I am totally in love with GlueDrops (which is our version of the Glue Dot). The adhesive is very strong and it kind of holds anything. I bought a circle punch too, recently, after looking at it for months. I was waiting for something larger, but this is the largest I have been able to find. :-( I used it in one of the bubbles (the green one). I have again give paper piecing a try but I think it is going to take a while to perfect this art.
My card recipe:
Cardstock: Metallic CS from the DCWV stack, blue patterned paper from Hobby Ideas, yellow and orange CS from stash
Stamp: Bubbles stamp from a Hobby Ideas clear stamp set
Others: Heidi Grace rub-on; Fevicryl 3D outliner in various shades; Staedler markers; Carla Craft circle punch; lace and ribbon from stash
PS: Vineet hates the pompom!! :D Wonder why?! I kind of find it cute and have bought it 3-4 shades. He thinks it looks kind of cheap!!
Does anyone have any nice template for a 6*6 card envelope/box? I checked Mel's blog (Mel Stampz) but couldn't find the kind I needed. I liked one of the semi-envelope templates that she has and used it for a friend's wedding card.
PS: For those of you suffering from the summer heat, have you had any ice lollies/popsicles yet?! :-) I just had one some time back.
