**ETA: Christi at Frog Feathers says she will give you a 15% discount at her store for this summer if you tell her you found her shop via my blog! (send her an etsy convo) ... how sweet is that? Hope you'll run over and do a little shopping :o) **
Happy weekend, girls!
It's saturday afternoon, the sun is blazing (like it always does in south east asia) and I'm not gonna lie to you... I feel like I need a nap. It's so quiet outdoors I think maybe even the birds are taking their siesta.
I better hurry up with what I have for today then..
I got me some fat quarters of pretty vintage fabrics in the mailbox this week... from Rope. Spring-like, fresh and lovely prints. You can rip 'em and stitch 'em and do all sorts of fun things.
I never thought I'd make a card (much less SIX of them) with no patterned paper. But then, patterned fabric makes a great substitute, doesn't it? :o)
I think... that gate-fold cards and I might not have been made to be friends :o( We'll see --- in the days ahead.
Stamping works on fabric too! The effect is just a little bit softer -- what's not to love about that?
Those little posies are made of scraps of tea-dyed lace trim. Fun, cute, and easy... you'd better plan on having super sticky fingers after you're done creating them though. Lots of glue involved ;o)
That's my first card set created with the pretty trio of fabrics. I'll show you the next set I made sometime next week, k.
OH Bother!! I might as well show you now. The thought of having to think of another title for another post... *shudder* <--- now you know my grudge against this thing called blogging?
Up on these next three cards, there are some pretty awesome, fluffy-cute thingies from Frog Feathers <---- love this name :o)
Shabby, frayed roses and beautiful jute trimmings...
The middles of these lovely pieces of fabric roses can be adorned with little posies, buttons, or other toppings...
Hope you'll have the good sense to click on some of the links I've left you with today.... and get yourself some Rope prints or Froggy Feathers...
Time for my nap.
Oh wait.. I just saw some interesting looking shop on etsy............
*goes off and starts adding items to her cart again*
Love from an etsy-shopper/addict.
