I love the 70's which is no surprise since I was born during that era. The fashion style does'nt do anything for me at all! but I love the patterns and the music. LOVE the music! :) Bit of a bone of contention when Forbes and I go away, he hates it, he's into the 80's - yick!
The Zip-A-Dee Doodle collection reminded me of that with its doodles and paisley patterns. It does'nt have that eclectic mix of colours that you would associate with that era but it does have my all time favourite colour, blue and Forbes's favourite colour, green so its gotta be good right?! Of course, those of you who know me know Im really not a doodle chick, Im a neat freak, with just a tad of analness :) yes Im happy to admit Im anal, about somethings!
This week its a card themed week over at BoBunny, with Sunday 29th Sept being international card making day. This week we are bringing you a whole range of ideas using the different collections - there'll be something there for everyone!
I used the Collage sheet of paper for both my cards - I had spotted this saying on the reverse and thought it was a perfect 'cutesy' saying for Forbes's birthday card. I might not have the perfect husband but he's always there for me when I need him. I'ved fussy cut the white rectangle out from the green background paper and layered it onto chipboard, placing it off centre. The heart and banner are also cut fussy cut from the same piece and layered with foam before adding a jewel, dimensional sticker and bakers twine in a double bow.
The second card I had in mind for a friends birthday - and before some of you get excited I have a few friends celebrating birthdays in the next month or so :) so that will keep a handful of you guessing lol. I wanted it to have feminine look to it, so out came the dies to make some flowers. Ive used Tim Holtz's tattered florals and My Favourite Things and used double dot card stock. I love this stuff it comes in a huge variety of colours with either a fine polka dot, stripe, flourish or heritage design. The flatter flowers on the bottom of the cluster are a mixture of old and new BoBunny.
Ive done the same technique here, separating the base of the design from the white bracket, and then distressed the edges before popping it up with chipboard.
Rhonda, Ulrika and Ilene have created some equally fabulous cards, and you can see them here
Thanks for popping by!
