Out of my comfort zone

Whoa! What happened here? Did somebody else make this card for me? It’s very not “me”, I’ll agree – and that’s because I tried very hard to copy a card from the catalogue. Using different stamps and different colours, of course; no point in making it too easy!

I’d ask you to guess which card it was ... but then I’d suffer the humiliation of nobody responding, so I’ll put you out of your misery. It’s the centre card on page 56 of the UK catty. The catty sample is Crumb Cake and uses Growing Green. I didn’t have that set when I made this (I do now!) so used Ornate Flowers instead.

Stamps: Ornate Flowers, Tiny Tags
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Paper: Greenhouse Gala
Ink: Baja Breeze, Early Espresso
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Jewellery Tag Punch, 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon – Early Espresso

  1. Wow Helen (this is much nicer than the catty one). Goodness the baja looks superb with the olive and I love cut out flower too (didn't know if I was allowed to say decooopage!)

  2. Very pretty, love your take on this card.

  3. Wow I love it so much better than the catalogue x

  4. I really like this card Helen. Think I may have to add some baja breeze ink to my wish list!

  5. Love it! It's tons better than the catty sample! Your colours are SO much nicer!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
