My lovely Blogger followers!

Hello everyone!  It's Thursday so it's time to show you my current faves at Quixotic Paperie!  Well, I am lovin' all of the new SCACD releases this year and the newest Retro Crew 2 release by Victoria Case for SCACD is no exception!  And they are great value at £5.75, or you can currently buy all four new stamps at the reduced price of £18.99 which is a whopping 17% off! 

For my make today, I used Retro Crew 2 Take a Note...

 
 

It's out of stock as I speak but don't worry!  Quixotic Paperie is the only supplier of SCACD stamps in Europe so you send a note to Elaine here, she'll order it in for you!

I wished I looked like this at work, but instead I'm running around like headless chicken going from meeting to meeting!  I matched this sweetie up with papers from the new Cosmo Cricket Upcycle paper pad and kept the retro feel with a little bit of distressing and inking with my Ranger Archival ink pad in Sepia and my Memento London Fog.  I used my Sew Easy Tool with the Blanket Piercer Head and red floss.  You can't see it from the photo, but I also added teeny tiny drops of Viva Decor from my Silver Pearl Pen.


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Upcycle paper pad
Stamps:  Victoria Case for SCACD Retro Crew 2 Take a Note
Accents: clip from stash
Tools: Tim Holtz distressing tool, EK Success border punch,
Sew Easy Tool, Blanket Piercer Head, red floss

LOL, if it is any consolation I don't look like this at work either... certainly not with the wind today, I arrived looking like I'd been dragged through a hedge backwards (as my mum would say!!)

Love all the nods to the office with the clip and the punch

Sue said...

This is a wonderful scrappy/collage card Mary. The added cross stitch is
the star and a great embellishment to tie it altogether.
Smiles:)
