First Yeehah! and now die cutting.

This is my second attempt at posting this as blogger 'ate' the last one!
I'm on a roll this week - not one but 2 cards for the CD Sunday Blog Challenge.
My previous post shows the card I made for the Yeehah! theme. But there was also a choice to do diecutting so I made a second card. It's taken me all week to make this card as the die cutting wasn't going right. Yesterday I went to my local craft shop that was having a closing down sale and kindly took some of her remaining stock off her hands - wasn't that kind of me! Especially as my craft room is stuffed full of stash. One of the things I bought was funky foam so I die cut the lady in the bath out of white foam. I then coloured everything in using Promarkers - much easier than cutting everything out in different colours and piecing them together. The blue bubble paper is from a 12 x 12 sheet that I bought when I first started crafting. I only have a small piece left now. Both the bubble paper and white card are die cut using a Nestie. The dark blue backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD. It's a photo of blue silk but I thought it looked like the lady's towel ready for her to use when she gets out of her bath! The card is finished with an acetate slider greeting from a QVC kit and some ribbon from my stash.



I'm going to sent this card to my youngest sister for her birthday at the end of May. I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with a piccie of a card I made about a month ago. I haven't been able to show it before as it was entered into a forum competition. All the entries are voted on by the forum members and to keep it fair no one knows who made the cards until the winner is revealed.

  2. Hi again Pamela. 1st to visit and now it looks like last to visit - all in the same week. Thanks for coming back again and I LOVE the card. I can almost feel those bubbles. Of course you had to help your shopkeeper out and take stuff of her hands.
    Thanks from CD Sunday.
    Hugs
