Coffee Lovers Bloghop Day 1
I have been making a large number of blog posts lately. First there was the Spring Card Camp that lasted 20 days. This was followed by the unexpected Spring Card Camp 2 which is still in progress and will also last for 20 days. On top of this I have been busy making card samples for the Scrapbook store that I work for. Now today, is the first day of the Coffee Lovers Spring Summer Bloghop. This bloghop has been very good to me. I have been lucky enough to win a prize every year but one.
The only real rule of this bloghop is that every card be new………no backlinking allowed. I decided to use an up to the minute and very topical patterned paper to show that this card is not back linked.
Although I can honestly say that I detest the symbol on this patterned paper, Photoplay has made it palatable with the happy bright colours.
Spring Card Camp 2 Day 17
Today’s video was presented by May Park. The idea of the video was to use a cover die as the background on a card and then add the pieces cut out of the cover plate back on to the card in a dimensional and pleasing design. May used a thread nest on her card which I have not used in a long time and I thought it would be fun to use this design element again. Sadly, time has not improved my thread nest making skills and my thread nest does not look that great. Otherwise, I like the card.
