Back after 2 months!

Hey everyone, I am back to my card making and blogging after 2 long months. It has been a busy 2 months, went in for an unexpected minor surgery, right at the beginning of my holidays, and then the college and studies were going on so rigorously that I didn't have much time to look at the blog as well. Finally, I am done with all my exams, and the wait for the results has began already ;)

I am a bit all over the place, running errands for groceries, stationary, and school uniforms for the soon to be starting school year for kiddos, but was able to sit and make a card yesterday night. Nothing fancy, made 2 simple ones, I think I am all rusted, need to get my mojo back slowly.

The first one up is a very simple one layer card, with a single stamp, and few rhine stones, with a gentle touch of some blue pigment ink. I don't know the stamp company name, but I do know that it is a very old stamp.

I had absolutely missed playing here for the last few weeks, glad am able to join this week!

Playing with a simple stamp, I think Bingo is perfect to interpret this weeks cue.


The second one is also almost one layer, but a paper strip is added. I started with masking the card diagonally, and I chose the chevrons from Kaisercraft and stamped diagonally in a panel, and added a strip of pattern paper to give a border, I used distress inks for my stamping, crushed olives, riped permisson.....gosh can't recall the names of the other two inks ;) I really need to sit and craft everyday.....this is bad, I even forgot the names of the inks!!
I added some splatters using the same inks, and a few rhine stones, the sentiment is from Uniko studio - Simply said birthdays.
