Play Date Cafe #95 & Advocado Arts

Hi everyone, it’s happy Play Date Cafe time again!  We want you to have another cup of creativity on us!

I seriously don’t know where the time is going.  Can it really be a few days since I last posted?! Sorry!

I have a card to share with you today that uses some lovely fresh colours..
This is our colour story for this week…  Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL!  So many ideas came to mind when I looked at it.  I think it’s one of my favourites of Jaclyn’s colour stories so far, I LOVE it!
95 navy, bubblegum, leaf green
I have been clearing out some of my old crafting supplies and thought I would play around with some die cutters for a change.  There was a time I wouldn’t have stamped a thing and everything would have been die cut!  Funny how things change.

There’s not really much to tell you on this card as it’s pretty self explanatory.  I cut all of the elements and pieced it together.   It makes it sound like it took 5 minutes, doesn’t it?!  Na, it took quite a while by the time I found the right dies/inks/stamps etc.

This week we are sponsored by Avocado Arts.0sponsor (2)

  9. I know what you mean about one's own style changing, or rather the means to the end. I used to use tons of punches, but have really moved out of that phase.

    I like that you created a long skinny card and topped it with that perfect Bubblegum Pink striped luscious bow! Hope you are well, Ruby. ((hugs))
