It's 32 °C outside and 22 °C inside. The air is heavy and I think we can expect a good storm this afternoon. :(

I used some Martha Stewart moulds this time. I've had them for quite some time but just didn't have the time or will power to do anything with them. I have three large boxes of different moulds. I bought them when I was working in school and now they are just waiting for someone to use them. :) I'll try to use them more often, because I like the final result. I used frame and fern this time. ;)

Little cute Edwin

Hi!

It's Monday again and hopefully a start of a great week and a great month. I would like to thank each and every one who takes time and leaves me a comment. I really like reading them and they mean so much to me. ;)

At the moment I'm waiting for our mail man to arrive, because I'm hoping he'll bring me the newest stamp club kit from Magnolia. I've already seen the stamp included, but never the less ... I think this year's collections are coming too quickly. It's July and we already had 4 collections and the last one had 35 stamps which is a lot of money if you want them all. (... and of course we all want them all ...)
I still plan to buy 3-4 stamps from that collection, even though I have quite a few already at home. I think Special Moment is this year's best collection from Magnolia (well, so far!). :)

So, here's my latest card with the new Little Cute Edwin from Special Moment Collection. I masked him with a bench that I borrowed from my dear crafting friend D. Thank you D.!!!!! (I need to buy one) ;)






For this card I used:

  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: Archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: My Mind's Eye
  • dies: TH - Butterflight, Magnolia DooHickey Heart Swirl
  • stamp: Little Cute Edwin (Special Moment Collection, 2013), Bench (Pink Collection)
  • flowers from Wild orchid crafts, I am roses
  • paper doily
  • white lace
  • white half pearls
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • frantage (shabby blue).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. ABC Challenge: Q for Quite a few
