Congratulations with Stampin ' Up ! Curly Cute

 zoe tant independent stampin up demonstrator

 Hi everyone, how's you today?  I'm fine and enjoying chilling after a fabulous holiday which I will share with you very soon when I have put some srapbook pages together.  Today it's taken me a while to get in the mood for crafting as I've not done any for a while and so I'm slow off the mark with this weeks Less is More challenge.  Chrissie and Mandi are challenging you to make a clean and simple card with the theme of either 'thank you' or 'congratulations'.  For the moment I've managed 'congratulations' what with so much love in the air at the mo I've taken on a wedding/anniversary theme with my congrats. 

I've finally been brave enough to open my lovely pack of Springtime Vintage Designer Series Papers and use a small scallop trimmed piece to set off my theme.  For the hearts I first used sponge daubers to add colour (pear pizzazz and baja breeze) to some very vanilla cardstock.  I then used the spritzer tool with the same colour marker pen to add a little bit of texture.  The baja breeze seam binding ribbon is just perfect for twisting and then gathering by fraying the ends slightly before pulling on a single thread in the middle to gather it.  I've tucked the ends away after tying my knot.  Basic pearls highlight my Curly Cute sentiment.  For my pear pizzazz matting layer I also used the cutting tool kit to distress the edges.  I've also finally had the sense to invest in some textured cardstock and my very vanilla base is exactly that.  You can click on either picture for a larger view.  I hope to get around to try the thank you out later in the week.

Back soon with some holiday pics and stories.

Ciao Bella
