Part 1 of my 2nd Challenge card set
Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and relaxed after the weekend, ours flew as usual, we really didn't do very much at all apart from little jobs around the house, we did shopping etc on Saturday and Sunday we pottered around in the morning then I went into the craft room in the afternoon and Paul sat and did his accounts.
We then went into the kitchen to figure out how to cook Beef stew in our new Ninja Foodi, (slow cooker/pressure cooker) thing. Oh what fun!! I have had an old fashioned Pressure cooker for some years but I just couldn't get on with it, it was one that had a weight thing on the top, I used to frighten the life out of me, this new one does all the thinking for you and tells you what to do, it also won't go under pressure if there isn't enough water etc, watch this space, I will let you know how we get on!!
Today's card is the first of two cards that I made using this stamp set, I really like the set, I bought it a while ago from Ebay I think, it's a Stampin Up! set called Serene Silhouettes.
For this particular card I took a stamp from one of my background stamp sets and created the shaded area behind the tree, I then inked up the tree with Versafine Black ink and stamped the tree and sentiment.
To finish the card I matted on to Black card and then placed that onto a white base card.
Super simple but quite effective I think.
Tomorrow's version has a little more colour!!
Today I am going to sit and make the cards using the dies that Inlovearts sent me, I just haven't had any inspiration to use them so far, let's hope I have some today.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
