Just For You

Morning, happy Friday. I'm typing this on Thursday night & it's proving a difficult task because my fingers are so cold. Hope you're all managing to keep warm.
Here's my card for today, I used stamps from the Hobby Art 'Anna's Collection - Just For You' set..........

I used Versacolor inks Split Pea & Atlantic to make the background - mostly second generation stamping. The tiny dots & stars are from the HA Decorative Backgrounds set, it's a great little stamp for filling in areas..................
The biggest stamp in the set was stamped once with Sky Blue & once with Atlantic Versacolor & the sentiment was stamped with Black Versacolor.........

I cut a piece of vellum to the same height as a C6 card & about 3cm wider, then embossed it with the Crafts Too Ball Flowers embossing folder (30% off in the Mega Sale)........
I used Anna Marie Designs Plain Citrine & Dottie Powder Blue card for matting & layering & adhered the vellum to the back of the lefthand side, to create a cover. I finished the card with a length of seam binding ribbon & a bow.......

The finished card again..........

The big news at Lisa B Designs is that tomorrow on Create & Craft, Imagination Crafts launch the first releases of Lisa's brand new stamp range. At the moment, Sue will be on at 10am & Lisa is scheduled to be on at 4pm. If that should change Lisa will try to let me know & I will update the Lisa B Designs Facebook page etc.
Lisa has made some gorgeous samples to show off her new stamps so tune in & let us know what you think.
Have a great weekend, I'll be back on Tuesday.


  1. Must watch Lisa's big debut tomorrow! Love your delicate card, very "serene". Thought it would be a good design for Sympathy cards too.
    For the record, whilst the hands aren't very warm, it's the feet that suffer the most in this house!

  2. A beautiful card, Kirsten. Thank you. I look forward to seeing Lisa's stamps, but might have to set the recorder! Saturdays are busty!!

  3. A great card, I have this set from years ago and never really used it much, thanks for the inspiration gonna get them out, looking forward to the shows and seeing the new stamps, ready for some new stuff, Nicola x
