I’m your hostess for this week’s challenge. It’s July and we’re right in the throws of wedding season so this week, your challenge is to create a card or project where you use something “Old, New, Borrowed & Blue“:
- OLD – use something older from your product stash (paper, embellishments, etc.)
- NEW - the newest stamp that your just acquired
- BORROWED – scraplift or CASE a “design” from our Flourishes Gallery (*PLEASE link & credit the project inspiration piece from our gallery.)
- BLUE – add something blue on it!
Here is the card that I came up with using our “Old, New, Borrowed & Blue” theme…
I began by die cutting a circle from Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock. I stamped my fairy image from the new “Garden Fairies” stamp set (my “newest” stamp!). I borrowed my design from a card created by the lovely Christine Okken called “Watercoloured Tea Rose” (my “borrowed” design) from the Flourishes Gallery.
Here is a close up of my little fairy. I added some fine clear glitter to her wings and the dandelion too! For her wings, I stamped them twice and fussy cut them out and added some foam adhesive behind the ends to pop them up.
my “old” item) and I used blue ink on my image (my “blue” item).
I decided to decorate the inside of my card too! I used the same image from the new “Garden Fairies” stamp set again using orange ink. I also stamped a sweet little sentiment from the same collection using Memento “Lulu Lavender” ink.
