Everything Eleanor

Dear Crafters,

Sale-a-bration may be over, but the Occasions & Annual Catalogues still provide us with so much to choose from, so let’s have a look and see what else we can create!

Today I enter a sketch challenge at Just Add Ink, #305!



I started with a Crumb Cake card base which I embossed with the Elegant Dots TIEF.

I stamped a piece of Whisper White card with Crumb Cake ink using the Everything Eleanor stamp set, before slicing it into 1 1/2″ strips. I sponged the edges with a dauber and the Crumb Cake ink, before adhering it to another piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I wrapped a piece of coordinating ribbon around it and added a bow.



I stamped the flower image 3 times using the masking technique and fussy cut them out. I used my Wink of Stella (clear) brush dipped in some Blushing Bride ink to colour them. I’m not sure you can see the shine in the photos?!!!!


I stamped the bird in Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White card stock and fussy cut it and added it to the card with dimensionals.

Lastly, I added some Dazzling Details to the stamen.


It is school holidays here in Australia and my 9 year old also wanted to have a go at this challenge, so here is her card. She created this all by herself without any help what-so-ever from me. I was quite impressed!
