Little Red Telephone

Evening Everyone.

Well, the electric storms came and went causing just a blip in television reception and, at the same time, refreshing this little corner of paradise. However, I can feel it getting muggy again and I think it's going to be another hot night. How are you all doing? Hope it's bearable where you are.

I have a wee card to share with you today. It's made from the leftovers from the anniversary card ... I was going to just clear my desk and add these scraps to the snippet mountain, but then I thought of Pixie Di, like you do, and sat down to make a snippet card for her Crafty Snippets Playground - Week 82 ... in this heat a dook in the duck pond would be lovely :)
Not much to it, the topper was created from snippets of kraft and white card - the white card stamped with the twinchie-sized telephone, coloured with ProMarkers and blinged up with a shiny red card candy, and then everything was layered together. The greeting stamp is an old, favourite, which seemed appropriate with the telephone.


  • white 4" square card base
  • leftover scraps of kraft, brown and white cardstock
  • Telephone Stamp from Inky Doodles (free with Aug 2013 Craft Stamper) 
  • Hero Arts Hello greeting stamp
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
  • ProMarkers, Poppy Red, Ice Grey 1 & 5, Black
  • a red mirror card candy

That's it for this evening, short and sweet. I've got the sewing machine out and I'm planning out another cushion cover - a present for my youngest sister's who has a birthday coming up.

Take care, keep cool, drink plenty of fluids and happy crafting,

  3. We've had the storms here too, and thankful though I am for the wet stuff, I am so sorry for those who have been flooded. Not freshened up at all though, it is still so oppressive!

  4. Cute card with a fabulous retro image!

  5. Hi Elizabeth!
    Oh wow, I truly adore this card, so eye catching and how clever to use the card candy as a final flourish on the phone. Super colour combination - I love it!

    Still no storms or rain here - heard thunder in the distance yesterday but that was all. A good downpour would clear the air - and then more sunshine please :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  9. I saw this over at the playground and I love it. The phone stamp/image is fantastic - such a gorgeous shape and the colours you've used as well as the layout make it the star of the card - really love it! hugs Karen
