Missed it by that much…

Anybody else an old Maxwell Smart fan?  I loved Get Smart back in the day, but I thought the movie was dumb.  Some things shouldn’t be re-done.

Anyway, what does all this have to do with the price of tea in China?  (My we ARE digging out the old chestnuts today!)  I had the ColourQ 45 Challenge colors listed on my craft table all week and finally finished the card yesterday, only to realize that I’d just missed the posting deadline.   Well, I missed being considered for Colour Queen, but of course I can still upload to the site.  Would you vote for me?

ColourQ45 Believing is Seeing

  • Just Believe stamp set
  • Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso and Wild Wasabi card stock
  • Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso Classic ink pads
  • Regal Rose and Rose Red Stampin’ Write markers
  • Big Shot and Lattice Embossing folder; Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Pretty in Pink 3/8 inch taffeta ribbon and Pearls Stick-on Jewels

I couldn’t get into the Tempting Turquoise in the Colour Q scheme, and I thought I would be really sneaky and just put a teeny tiny border in to satisfy the requirements.  Who would have guessed that it would work so well??  I was astonished to say the least.

Today’s ribbon treatment does NOT involve sticky, tacky adhesive, thank you very much.  There’s a simple running stitch on one side of a 2 inch scrap of ribbon, pulled together and knotted to make a half-rosette.  A pair of those are on either side of the sentiment and I am very pleased with they way they turned out.  I’m sure someone has done this before but I haven’t seen it done so for now I am claiming this brilliant concept.

You know you’re gonna need this stamp set…

  1. I would definitely vote for you! I went to the website but wasn’t sure how to let them know that your card was definitely the best! I love the set you used, the ribbon embellishments, and the use of all the colors! Super job!


  2. I for one, would vote for anything that you posted. All are brilliantly made into a card that I try to case. Keep up the beautiful work. Blessings, Victoria
