WT166 Thank you very much



What an interesting "Ways to use it challenge"....I have never heard of *inchies* - must be because I'm a foreigner - LOL!!!
Since I didn't have any I had to create my own....

My grey cells had to go in overdrive and I had to surge for a stamp set....and I didn't even had my second cup of Cappuchino yet - LOL!!!

So I finally found a set and this is what I did - I have used a wonderful set called "Spring Blooms" and it's from Impression Obsession. The images are small and I have created another card with this set that you can see here.

I have added some Silver Micro Brads in the center of each flower and underneath the sentiment from the retired "All Year Cheer II".

To give the card a little more punch I have added the wonderful new Real Red Striped Ribbon from SU. To balance the card I have added three more brads on the right hand side.

For the centerpiece I have cute the Real Red CS 2 3/4" x 2 3/4". The Whisper White layer is cut 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". The flower images and sentiment are 1" x 1" and the Real Red frame is 1 1/4" x 1 1/4".

Hope you like it??? ~TFL~

It's gorgeous! I love the monochromatic look - although, I'm not very good at it! I've only been following your blog for a few days now - can't remember where I stumbled across it - where are you from? I love your work!

So super cute, Silke! I love the way the inchies are popped up and the great splash of bold striped ribbon across the bottom of the card.

Very cute....I have in my head an idea for a red card, haven't done it yet, though! I just like the freshness of red and white. Great job on the challenge!

Hey, thanks for letting me know about the WT challenge! Ok, I might have done it a tad early but I did add the keyword in case ppl want to see another sample :D

Gorgeous card! You have a thing with white card stock. So, was this your first try? I always have bad luck with white, always make it dirty somehow :(

Your red cards absolutely rock!! Love this one just as much as the others!! They really pop from the thumbnails in the gallery. I keep wanting to make a red and white card, maybe even CASE you, but somehow other colors always end up in there. Next week, I just need to FOCUS on only red and white. It looks fantastic!!

Jessie/knightrone said...

Those brads, as well as your card, are fantastic!! Thanks for telling us where you got them!!

Aloha Silke,
deine Karte ist so wundervoll schön.
Ich mag es wenn du die Karten so gestaltest. Einfach aber so ausdrucksvoll.
Love and Kisses Simone

What a great way to use small stamps ~ they tend to sit unused ~ TFS this great idea!
