Twisted Cards #005

The other I day mentioned that I'd gained new inspiration after the holiday to create. I've been planning to make some layouts and a mini album. Unfortunately I'm having issues with my printer. It seems that part of the printer head of the colour magenta is broken, which causes stripes on the print outs. My hubby has been online forums trying to find a solution, but so far no luck. This means I can't print my pictures and using an outside shop isn't really an option as I'm not sure what size I would like the photos yet and I might print collages in some cases. Still bursting with energy and ideas,  I decided to make some cards instead.

Just over a month ago Ingrid announced she was a new member on the design team of Twisted Cards. Being a loyal sister-in-law I of course had to play along with one of the sketches. I chose Twisted Cards #005. Like Ingrid I turned the card 90 degrees, and also flipped it vertically.

The other day I went to my favourite shop on Maling Road, B*Inspired and bought some gorgeous linen look ribbon. With the papers I chose for this card, it was the perfect combination.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper + Punchouts + Borderlines: Pink Paislee 'Bayberry Cottage' | Ribbon: B*Inspired | Buttons | Border Punch: Martha Stewart | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink 'Signature Greetings', 'Butterfly Dreams' | Ink: Staz'On (Timber Brown), VersaColor (Umber) | Pearls: Kaisercraft | Butterfly Die: Papertrey Ink.

I'll be back with another post straight after this one, but as it's for another challenge I wanted to create a separate post for each one. Be back soon!

Ingrid Danvers said... should say loyal instead of loyel.
