Sentimental Journey

I have just looked thru my blog and I don't think I have blogged this card - so if I have I apologise! lol
It is a swap I made for a Creative Inkers swap late last year using a stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue and it's called 'Sentimental Journey'.
I started with Very Vanilla card that I then wheeled the Friends wide wheel in Early Espresso then embossed it with the Lattice Big Shot embossing folder (also from the Summer Mini) and finally sponged the edges. The stamps were all stamped on Very Vanilla using Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy and Basic Black. To do the tag which I cut by hand, I used a selection of stamps from the 'Taking Care of Business' stamp set. I used marker pens to just ink the bits that I wanted and a Stampin'-ma-jig to place them exactly where I wanted them. This method means you can create completely different images - so why not have a go yourself and see how you can create your own personalized images!!
To complete the card I stamped Riding Hood Red on to the twill ribbon and then put it all together on a Early Espresso card with an Always Artichoke layer.
I was really pleased with the way it came out and so were the girls at the training session as they voted it the "Best WOW" card! Thanks girls!!

These same girls are the girls I am going away with this weekend for a Creative Inkers Stamp Camp in Rotovagas - whoops Rotorua! So I won't be posting till next week - have a great weekend and hope you get some crafting in!!
