Inspired by Spring - And a lady's skirt at the shop!

I know, I know, it seems a little strange, but I was basically stalking this lady in Coles yesterday - I wanted the colours from her skirt. And when I finally thought that I was busted I told her that I was going to make a card out of the colours from her skirt and she looked at me with this are you psycho and why are you following me look. So I got out of there fast, I had what I needed!

With the stunning day in Melbourne today it just MADE me want to make this card. Unusual colours for me, but I love it!! It has like a retro feel to it. Have I mentioned that I love my cuttlebug?? You can tell it’s a new item, I feel like a card isn't complete now unless it has a bit of dry embossing on it. Can you see it in the photo??

Cardstock - Taken with Teal, Whisper White

Ink - Taken with Teal, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black

Accessories - Cuttlebug, 1/4" Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Turquoise Rhinestone Brad.

So hope the rest of you Melbournite's got to enjoy the day today. It was 25C and not a cloud in the sky, and a slight breeze. Don't think you can get much better really.

Thanks for looking and thanks for all your comments girls, it means a lot to me!!



  1. I just wish I knew what a cuttlebug was!!!

  2. You are too cute mum!! It is a little machine that embossess the card and puts pretty patterns on it. It can also cut the card too. You get seperate folders that emboss and ones that cut.
    It goes through a roller that presses the folder onto the card and makes the pattern.

  3. Lol - you are hilarious! Only you could get away with stalking someone in the supermarket for the sake of a card! :)

  4. It looks beautiful. I love teal but never know what to do with it. Inspired!

  5. Awesome card KJ! Was nearly popped out of my seat!! know how i like cards that POP! Real winner here XX


Thanks for making the time to write a comment - you have made my day
