Hey Soul Sister!

Good morning and a very happy Thursday! The 15th of the month is always time for a new challenge over on the Lost Coast Designs Portal To Creativity  and this time it's Sentimentally Yours, where the sentiment has to be prominent. 

Skinny cards are all the rage at the moment, and as I'm always at the cutting edge of craft (yeah I'm SO not) I decided to make one of those. For those of us who have been crafting for a little while, these are what we used to call DL cards.
To start, I made my background using the Large Chicken Wire Background stamp and oxide inks.

I do love this fabulous 50's Girl. She's just been stamped with black Versafine and heat dried. Then I coloured with a Distress pen, cut her out and clear embossed her.

This sentiment is the story of my life. I can (and do) fall over my own shadow. I trip myself up, fall over my own feet, and walk into anything within a 3-foot radius! The Carmen's Veranda clear stamp is called Flip Flops, and as you can see, it stamps beautifully.

I have to photograph what I've used, otherwise I forget, but here it all is!

I hope you like her, and that you join in with us over on the Portal. There's the chance to win some Lost Coast dollars to spend in the store. Just remember to use real stamps (no digis allowed) and make sure that your sentiment is prominent. 

Have a lovely day, and thanks so much for looking x


  1. Great design and love the idea you have achieved here, looks awesome and with those colours.
    Have a lovely upcoming weekend ♥

  2. Love your card, it's a great image and the sentiment is fay. I can only wear trainers or boots! Hugs, Valerie

  3. I love her, she looks amazing and the sentiment is just perfect and those added sequins are a lovely touch. Hugs, Anne xx

    PS - I am having problems leaving comments, hope this one works, I keep trying! x

  4. I'm definitely a Soul Sister then YAY!! Another fun creation Sue, that honeycomb/mesh stamp looks so useful, love how it caught the sequins. I've always loved a DL card, there's something about the shape that changes the whole perspective of a design, this one works a treat. Fabulous my friend.
    Fingers crossed this comment gets through, blogger is being a pain in the butt again.
    Wishing you a super Sunday Hugs Tracey xx

  5. A great card ...

    Gone are my high heel days, how did I wear them I wonder!
    I am far more comfortable in a flatter shoe now ...

    All the best Jan
