The clocks went forward overnight and so today I predict I shall be mostly playing catch-up. As I drank my coffee this morning I wondered what to do for my simple Sunday project. It’s International Women’s Day and their colour is purple. My regular blog readers will know it’s my favourite colour too so it had to feature somewhere. And then there’s the issue of adjusting every clock in the house. That settled it…
THE CLOCK CAME FIRST
I began this project with the fun clock image and attached sentiment from the Witty-cisms Stamp Set.
First I stamped it onto a layer of Whisper White Card using Basic Gray ink. Then I stamped the clock part onto a scrap of Whisper White Card using Gorgeous Grape ink. With Paper Snips I cut out the purple clock complete with wings and fixed it over the Basic Gray one using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
To add more interest to the layer I then wrapped a length of Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon around it and secured the ribbon on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive. With that done I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to fix the completed piece onto a layer of Gorgeous Grape Card.
Next I created a card base using my Paper Trimmer to cut and score a piece of Thick Whisper White Card. Then I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder. Once I’d added the assembled layers to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensional I was almost finished.
All I had left was the inside of the card and envelope to do.
For this I went back to the clock and sentiment stamp and inked it up with Basic Gray ink. Next I carefully stamped just the ‘wind’ in the bottom right-hand corner of a layer of Whisper White Card. Then using liquid glue I added the layer to the inside of the card base.
To complete the project I stamped the same ‘wind’ in the bottom right-hand corner on the front of a Whisper White Medium Envelope. My simple Sunday project was done in no time at all!
You know as I was looking at the sentiments in the Witty-cisms Stamp Set I realised that many of them would work really well on a scrapbook page or photo album too. That gives me an idea…
