Back to Card making

I have been absent for a long time from this blog. Life got busy and Β I took a break from designing cards. A few days ago I received a beautiful email from Aileen. She is a blogger from Australia, and she was wondering about my prolonged absence. It was a very sweet email and I was so very touched!

Thank you Aileen for reaching out to me πŸ™‚

Last night I was determined to design a card. It took me some time, but I think I completed it in a satisfactory manner πŸ™‚

The inspiration is from the latest Runway Inspired Challenge that went up today:

source: Β style.com

I fell in love with the whimsical pattern and the bold lines/colors of the fabric pattern! I would wear this dress any day! Oh, and the attitude of the model, just perfect πŸ˜€

I chose one of my old Stampin’Up! stamp sets (Growing Green) and started stamping on a white card base.

After stamping, I colored the images with various Copic markers (G000, BG34, YR000, YR12, RV10, RV11, Y11, Y13, YR16, YR38, B000, B01, BV11).

For the greeting, I used a DYMO label maker, and layered it over another piece of DYMO Orange label.

I am glad to finally make some time to design and create, and I hope to continue to do so.

  1. Hey you, so happy to see you found some ‘me’ time. Your card is a stunner, I only have two stampin up sets and this is one of them (a lovely gift from a bloggy friend), you have made me want to get it out again and just colour!

  2. Glad to see You back. Brought a smile to my face to see this post. Love your card, I’ve participated in a couple of these challenges, very interesting experience and I think I am starting to get the gist.

  3. Hey Tasnim!! So great to see a post!! I know full well about life getting busy and taking a break from blogging. But the good news is that it’s always here when you get the time. So glad you were inspired to make and share your beautiful card. xoxo, Kelly

  4. I love your card, Tasnim, and the “missing you” sure was to the point for me because I’ve been miss you. Welcome back and thank you.

  5. So lovely to see you back making cards, and what a beauty it is too. I love your sparse, modern style. I know Altenew must keep you busy (and I love the stamps you design) but it is nice to see you having some creative time to yourself again.
