The second card was made using the two shades of pink Vintage Sarapapers paper out of my kit. All the Sarapapers in my kit are tones of pinks and lilacs, lush! The stamp I used here is one from my stash that I've never used and I can't remember where I got it from now, sorry!! You can use any stamp though because the papers are so versatile. The friends forever stamp is a Dovecraft stamp. I cut the piece of the paler pink paper at the bottom of the card with a large scalloped edge scissors and tied a piece of American Crafts ribbon around it before I stuck it to the card. I stamped the image and coloured it in with Tombow pens. I coloured it quite loosely because I didn't want it to look too perfect? You'll have to click on the image to see what I mean! I cut the image out using small scalloped edge scissors and matted it onto a scrap of 8 x 8 HOTP Retro cardstock. I use this cardstock a lot. It comes in pads and its co-ordinated to match HOTP 8 x 8 papers . It comes in so many colour and is such good quality I love it. I've orderd a few more pads this week because I'm nearly out!! Back to business! I matted that onto a piece of the small floral paper and fixed it to the card with foam pads. I inked all the edges as always! I like this card too. I wasn't sure if the colours in ribbon would work but they do.
My final offering is an ATC. Again I used a stamp that was free with a magazine! I stamped it onto some brown card from my stash with a Brilliance ink pad but any light colour inkpad would work. I put a little glitter glue around the edge of the clock. I covered the ATC with the Vintage Sarapaper in pink and stamped over it with a background stamp to make it look a bit more distressed. I cut the letters from the HOTP letter sheet in my kit and chalked them in blue and green and inked all the edges. I ink the edges a lot in my stuff. I like the effect but it's practical too as it hides a multitude of sins LOL! The last thing I added was a gorgeous little gold egg timer charm, it's so pretty.
