Another ILWS Swap.

I’ve been busy the last few days but once again nothing I can post for a week or two as its all been swaps BUT I can now show you one of the swaps I created a couple of weeks ago, again for ILWS, the theme , if you can call it a theme was to use only the neutral colours and current items from the current idea book and catalogue. 

I used a design that’s an old favourite of mine with a subtle twist; instead of using a piece of patterned paper I used the huge medallion stamp AND for the first time I used my chalks. I received them as part of my demonstrator pack and would you believe I hadn’t even broken open the cellophane wrapper! I have now and believe me I won’t stop there … I can’t believe how easy they are to use.


Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Kraft
Mediums- Versamark, Basic Black
Embellishments: Black brads, 3/8” taffeta basic gray/kraft ribbon
Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, stamp-a-ma-jig.


It was a difficult swap, sticking to just the neutral colours, but I enjoyed it and I hope that the recipients like my cards – I certainly can’t wait to receive theirs – I hope to receive all of group 2 cards tomorrow.  If I do I’ll post them here  *promise*

Great design Dawn - love the way you've used the medallion stamp for the lower half (and you've inspired me to dust mine off!. Have a good weekend hun! Kate xx

Fab card. I love all the elements here and I can't believe that I hadn't spotted the black brads in the Vintage collection. I've added them to the order I'm placing today - so great timing. Thanks
