There is a new little blogger in town, who has been card-making for some time, but only shared her kind, sweet comments, and encouragement all around blog-land - you all know her as TK, but now? She is:
TK of Time 4 Kards - Yay!!
This week, my normally mundane, loads of [not so much] fun laundry Monday turned into a long-distance, speaker-on, crafty card fest with TK. She had wowed me with this card:
I asked her if she'd share the details about the awesome embossing folder - you know I cannot resist them. TK sent me the embossing folder!! The nicest surprise, on a day I really needed one! Well we had to 'play cards', right???!!
TK sent me an email ahead of our scheduled call with my supply list, so we could get right to work. She chose another e.f. from her stash - seems there was a three-for-ten sale that day - whoop, whoop =] I didn't have the exact blue, or green she used, but that was okay - I had plenty of distress inks to choose from.
So, are you ready? Here's my card, TK - I was inspired to:
- keep it on the masculine side
- add some silver thread to represent your silver embossing
- and I used a different Mama Elephant set, but with the same font you used on this darling card you sent me.
Hope you like it!!
Bundled Sage, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks;
W&W hello In a Word Cutaway; M.E. sentiments.
This card is a 5x7 as I didn't want to discard one little bit of that panel!
I did try another panel during our chat - with less random inking, and water - LOved it, then mucked it up by spritzing again - arrrgh - yle!!
Later in the day, after it dried, I just wouldn't give up on it ... ran it through the Cuttlebug in the embossing folder, purposefully staggered just a bit out of sync with my stamping, and created an even more masculine thank you, thank you very much!
MFT Thanks die; Darice Argyle embossing folder
Enough about me ... I cannot wait to see what TK created on the other end of that very long phone-line!!! [do you have in your mind the picture I've created of two girls with the old-timey tin-can phones with string yet? =]
Hugs, and thanks, to you, TK - you have a very sweet, and very generous heart! I cannot wait to plan our FACETIME day of playing cards!! xx
