Inky Couch Love!


Happy Friday! So how's your week been? I've not actually made it to work at all this week due to the ice and snow! At first it was fun, but now I'm getting kinda sick of the sight of snow and just spend my days doing housework...

...though I've found some spare minutes to get inky too :D!

So I decided to play along with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #. Here are those all important colours:

Mmmm scrummy combo of Aqua Mist and Dark Chocolate though I wasn't too sure about that Lemon Tart!

So still on my CAS kick of cards, I was determined to use some more scraps seeing as I spent most of this week organising them into colours (yup, that's how bored I've been!) and I promised myself that I would use that cute diddy cushion stamp and give some inky love to On My Couch:

The pic is a little deceiving as this card is tiny! It's only 2.5" x 4.25" and again was made from scraps. This idea originated from Betsy Veldman's take on the Scraptastic challenge; she went even further and created the cutest envies for them too by simply cutting an A2 envie in half and stitching up the sides.

I couldn't resist...
I have to say that I ♥ these sweet cards! So cute for secretly popping into a loved one's lunchbox, or glovebox or any other box LOL! Speaking of ♥, I'm totally loving the new PTI ink formulation too - check out the coverage on the Aqua Mist couch *sigh*!

Card Recipe
Stamps: On My Couch/On My Couch Additions
Ink: Aqua Mist/Dark Chocolate
Card: Vintage Cream/Lemon Tart
Others: Envelope and Sewing Machine!

Oh and have you checked out the sneak peeks for PTI's upcoming release!? Today's sneak peek has me the most excited - defintely raised my heartbeat a little (pun intended!)

Ooh and just one more thing before I love ya and leave ya for the weekend, has everyone received their Christmas ATCs?! If not pop us an email at because I really, really, really wanna share the pics of them all but don't want to spoil it if you've not got 'em yet!

Have a fabulous weekend people! Stay safe in the snow and ice (if you've got it!)

Love the card! Is that a shadow you have there around the image and edges of the card? Is that with a copic or ink pad? I love that added hint of color!

Ann said...

Too simple? Absolutely not Aimes! Really classy and the colours are just right for the design - love it.

Andrea M said...

How utterly fantastic Aimes! So CAS but so awesome - I love it!!! Happy new year! Looking forward to seeing more of your work in 2010 :)

That is so pretty! I love the simplicity of it. The couch is such a strong image that it works great for a CAS card.
