Mix and Match

Happy Tuesday,

Raining again in London and it is set to be with us all week. The good thing is that this is perfect crafting weather and yesterday I stayed inside and got inking playing with my new stamps. I decided to have a go at mixing and matching stamps from different companies to see if I could make my own pattern. I used my new Craft's Meow  'retro foundations stamps' and PTI  'basic background chevrons' rubber stamps.

If you read my blog yesterday you will see that I tried to enter the Embellish Colour Challenge but used last week's colours so this time I double checked and did the right colours!! I used these as my base. I did find it quite a challenge as I usually just like 3 colours. But it was a day for trying new things and so I was determined to have a go! And although this is not my best card I have did achieve what I had set out to do and had fun doing it..........and that is what it is really is all about!!

And here is what I came up with, a fun Birthday card:

Well I had better get myself out today and at least have a walk and do some food shopping......can't let the British weather defeat us!!

Have a good day x


  1. Oh...this is so clever Sandie...love how you added the gems and layered the sentiment over the Chevron. Fabulous!

  2. Very cool design, Sandie! I like that curvy line a lot, is it a single stamp?
    Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
    Ps: Sending some sunshine your way!

    1. yes it is from craft's meow retro foundations-the card I did on the last post was for cas-ual fridays not this one?? And thanks for the sunshine!

  3. What a fab fun card, Sandie. Love the retro stamp. Curiously drawn to it... ;-)

  4. this is the cutest card, luv the design...you are surely talented(was looking around a bit)...totally dig the Charlies Angles photo..*grin*...hope you have a wonderful week! Oh, BTW, London is on my bucket list!
