10 min Craft Dash #17, RS #62 & CFC #100

8 May 2013



Well I thought it was time to have another try at the 10 minute craft dash and I haven't played along with Retrosketches for ages so I wanted to use their sketch.  It also fits the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays as it uses kraft, bling & embossing.


Call Me


 I finished my card in 9 minutes 25 seconds.  I knew I wasn't going to make it in time if I stuck to my original plan, which was to add some ribbon and I intended to fussy cut the embossed telephone as well.  As time was ticking away I decided to heat emboss the telephone straight onto the panelled speech bubble instead, which I actually really like so it ended up ok.

I used Versamark ink to stamp the chevron pattern onto kraft cardstock and then cut out 1/2 inch pieces of the blue cardstock and stuck into onto a piece of scrap cardstock, I then heat embossed the speech bubble onto the panels and cut it out.  I added a heat embossed sentiment and some bling, added it to the kraft card base and all done.

I can't believe it took as long as it did really but it shows how time flies.  I must remember to increase my screen saver time settings next time though as I had to keep unlocking my screen to see how long I had left!

Neat & Tangled - A Lot to Say & Just Hello stamp sets
Hero Arts - Zig Zag background stamp
Zing white embossing powder
Papertrey ink - Melon Berry & Hawaiian Shores card stock
