The Other Craft, XV

I read Andi’s blog, My Sister’s Knitter. She always has a sock project on her needles. The sock yarn she uses are fun to look at; they range from speckled to colors that make you smile. I had some pink, self-striping sock yarn I know I wouldn’t be using as it’s been sitting in a bin for years. I wanted to send it to her because besides that pink is her favorite color, I know she’d appreciate it and use it.

I actually made her card first, back in September. Time ran away from me as the fall is always busy, so only recently I wound up some yarn apples and packaged together all the yarn along with tea and chocolate for her. Andi received them this week which is why I can now show you her card:

Andi’s avatar on Ravelry is a vintage one so I wanted to create that vibe with her card. You see here a gallery of photos I took to show off aspects of her hello card:

  1. 3-D elements are a must for me when putting a card together.
  2. I’ve been saving tea tags for cardmaking and this one fit the bill.
  3. Good, ol’ Ranger Texture Paste colored via Distress Ink – layered with a stencil on top of a Distress Ink, blended background that was lightly splattered with water and then stamped with a background stamp.

The whole color scheme was inspired by that washi tape from Daiso at the bottom. To get a closer look you can click on the first photo and the gallery will pop up.

I haven’t been inspired much lately with cardmaking which is why this series of posts have been quiet. Focus has been elsewhere. I hope to get back to playing around with my card and stamping supplies. I’m thinking of making a mini tutorial here and there to show you how I use my stuff. What do you think?

Thank you for hanging out with me a bit this Tuesday. Have a good one. TTYL.
