Sweet Stampin - Gingham


1st Post of the Day


Hi and Good Morning & Happy Weekend! :) Yay!

My first card today (for yes, there will be more........) is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin, where this week our theme is 'Gingham'.    We are sponsored by the fabulous Stamp and Create, and also our brilliant monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl.

Now I dont use a lot of gingham, (I prefer stripes and spots) but it does give a really fresh and yet cosy feel to this card.  I used one of my favourite Penny Black images, K&Co paper, ribbon, pearls and wooden charms from stash.  I cant tell you what the bumble-bees and tag dies are, as I am sworn to secrecy until my next post! LOL :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and I will be back later with some brilliant new release Cheery Lynn dies!

I'm a gingham lover (bought loads of it at the SECC from AnneMarie Designs) and it's perfect with your image. Going to have to get the layered tags, too - why do you do this to me?!!! xx

I haven't used gingham for ages in a card. You know what I think I use it for baby cards the most. I don't think I have ever used it on a regular card lol I think it can be hard to match sometimes, but you seem to have done this easily..


Thank you for sharing x

Alison, this is just adorable! I love your colors on this card and I think the gigham is just perfect for this card. I love your coloring on you image as well. I love the idea of animals on my cards, but I really don't achieve the effect with them as I would like, so I stick mostly to people and faces. lol.. I know I know practice practice.... Anyway, I love all the depth of this card and as always my new friend, so ROCK those dies! hugs, Lisa G
