Getting out the Iron!

Bline1a

Don't panic ... I did n't need a ladder ... I am not tackling the Everest like mound that is my ironing pile!

Nope ... that can wait for ... erm ... another day! I have in fact been ironing a card!

Another card that made it through the whole yes/no X Factor style audition process for my up and coming B Line card class is this one! Well I think it has made it ... if you guys don't like it ... well I shall have to think again and then perhaps let it down gently!

Once again ... only B Line stamps used with plain white card stock... not including the plain black ... obviously :0) Amazing what you can achieve with a few Lord Tim of Holtz Distress Inks and some embossing powder ain't it?Bline1 You know Tim ... the man that can skate on unfrozen ice while painting real rainbows with just an Adage Ticket and a blob of Glossy Accents.

The beautiful Butterflies are from the Collections Elements range and what a treat when you open that pack I can tell you ... it looks like one sheet of butterflies for a bargain price ... and when you get it open ... well it has FOUR sheets ... I LOVE surprises like that ... Don't you??? And in case you are wondering ... they are not on Lin's web site yet ... but they will be at Stamperama on Sunday :0)

Right ... I am off to do a spot more class designing ... What are you doing ????

Laters!

Scrumptious, yummy, card. Love it. I have a weakness for butterfly stamps and bird stamps, well just stamps really... my list of must haves for Sunday is getting longer and you're to blame.

Dawn Edwards said...

Love the card! Wish I lived nearby to have a chance at one of your classes. So I have to guess on your techniques used. I think I will have to try the Utee/iron trick. I love how the white just pops and those butterflies are gorgeous! Fabulous as always! The rainbow snippy made me giggle!

Sid said...

Another winner Linda !

craftytrog said...

Stunning card Linda! Can't wait till sunday! :o)

Sarah A said...

Couldn't possibly say no to this one, it is amazing, just love the colours and was it creased and thats why you ironed it??? Haha intrigued what needed ironing! If you need a mentor for your cards look no further, I don't demand a million dollar pay packet (although I could do with it) and don't need my own dressing room haha

Real ironing should be banned in my book, i can't wait for the creased look to come into fashion LOL, kids aren't for having setting a new trend though.
