Thanks ...

There are times when life can be very frustrating ... you have ideas for a card and no time to make anything and then there are times when you have all the time to create something and absolutely no ideas!  Today has been a day of spare time but few ideas!  I did manage to create a card after much procrastination, this is it:

Simple stamping with an inlaid die cut - not the most inspiring of designs but quite satisfying and an opportunity to use a new stamp set and die.  I stamped the image and then die cut Thanks out of the main panel and four times out of some turquoise card.  Layered up the die cut and the placed it back in the gap!

I used:
Uniko Studio Pure Florals: Cosmos stamp set
Lawn Fawn Thanks die

I am going to enter this month's challenge at Uniko Studio where the theme is Black and White with the optional twist - a splash of colour.

I'm also going to enter the challenge at Addicted to Stamps where the theme is Clean and Simple. Enjoy!


  1. woooww I adore this

  2. Absolutely gorgeous CAS card!! Love the stacked word dies with the slight variation with the color!! Very cool! Thanks for sharing your creation with us at Addicted to Stamps & More! Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*-DT member

  3. Oh my - this is so great, Elaine! I know absolutely what you mean but I would be delighted if one card as good as this came out of a day when I was short on ideas :) Love the hint of aqua and dimension of the die cut with the gorgeous cosmos!

  4. Fantástic! Love the inlaid die cut x

  5. Oh, Elaine, this is lovely. I love the black and white with just the little hints of turquoise. So perfect for Uniko and ATSM this week. I'm exactly the same as you, when I have a craft deadline nothing comes to mind, but then when I'm sitting at work all these ideas start spinning around my head! I must keep a notebook with me at all times! :D
    Thanks for sharing, Anita x

  6. This is simply CAS divine! I love how you've incorporated the splash of colour - FAB. Thanks so much for joining in on the Uniko Challenge & for using your Uniko stamps too. Hugs Bev x
