I am so sorry that I haven't visited any of your lovely blogs the last couple of days. I've had lots on at work and have been battling against an annoyingly pathetic cold. You know the ones? You don't feel brilliant but you don't feel so bad that you can phone in sick?! To make matters worse, our fridge freezer AND our oven have gone doo-lally at the same time so we keep having to dive home from work to let electricians in. It's also taking about 3 hours (no lie!) to cook dinner every night! The impact has been that I have had very little free time for crafting - boo hiss.
Luckily, I do still have one card that I made the other weekend that I haven't yet shared with you. This is one of the cards I made using my DT stamps from Dies to Die For and it is from the same CC Designs set as the one I showed you the other day with the little bear.
I've had this card in my mind for quite some time, however, it didn't come out quite as I'd planned - they never do, do they?! I used my Versamark pad to stamp the ice creams on to the brown card and then heat embossed them with clear powder to make them stand out a little more. It's not really a technique I've used before but I'm pretty happy with the result.
Stamps: CC Designs - Sweet Treats - Available here from Dies to Die For.
Paper: Doodlebug, Core'dinations.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Adhesive gems and Nestabilities.
Hope you are all well, I will try my bestest to visit you all over the next couple of days. Thanks for still leaving me lovely comments even though I have been a naughty blogger!
