A Big Hug

Hello everyone,

This week I decided to use one of my Kanban stamps I ordered a few months ago from Funky Kits. The image is from  the Kanban clear set “Little Friends, Big Hugs”. For me, the  children and animal combination, in these stamps are absolutely gorgeous. The circular sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley arrived Monday afternoon in my postal box, and what a joy to use two new stamps on one card!  I was eagerly waiting for a chance to use these beauties and the For Fun Challenge this week was the ideal opportunity. Carol, design team member at For Fun Challenges created a lovely sketch to work with this week.

I also entered my card for the following challenges:

 
 
I used the following to create the card:

  • White and blue cardstock
  • Prima Marketing Designer paper Annalee Collection  “Ashton”
  • Kanban clear stamp set 2010 – LFS01 “Little Friends, Big Hugs”
  • Lili of the Valley Circular Sentiments stamp set 7 “For You”
  • Lyra Rembrandt-Aquarell watercolour pencils
  • Heritage White Craft Acrylic paint
  • Lace for bow
  • Paper roses and buds
  • Cute Tee’z Peel-Off stickers for corners
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles”

 
For inspiration the design team ladies created fantastic cards for this For Fun Challenge. Please come and join in the fun, we would love to see your card at the For Fun challenge this week.

Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia
