Double duty


Whoo hoo! My Silhouette Portrait arrived and so I decided to make a card for a couple of challenges...

Designed to Color (#21) this week asked us to use a die and Color Throwdown (#262) had a great fall colour palette this week.


I decided not to make a 'fall' focused card, but to use the new stamps that I won over at Designed to Color a few weeks ago. The main photo today is my card.

I've always wanted tie stamps and love these ones, I coloured them using Pear Green and Mustard Promarkers.

I have a bit of work to do, getting to grips with the Silhouette Portrait, but I love it and it was a great help cutting the ovals and the sentiment for this card.

The grey chevron paper is by Studio Calico, the green paper is a scrap and I added a bit of bling to anchor the whole thing.

I like the crazy colour mix and random-ness of this card and I have a home for it already.

Happy Friday! This is my last weekend with Lemon (boo) and Nkem (my other bestie) arrives on Saturday for 5 days - sweet!

  1. Like the idea of the fall-colored ties instead of an autumnal card. Really fun but masculine at the same time. Good call craft buddy!
