Yesterday my son's lacrosse team had a game and they won it 15-0. WOOT! It was very exciting especially since my son scored one of the goals for our team!! Double WOOT!! lol Just had to share the news... They had two games last Saturday and they won them both also. So hopefully they can keep up the good work!!
Now on to scrappy stuff. I am loving this card I just made using Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy EZMount Stamp Set - Only Words - From The Heart and Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy EZMount Stamp Set - Flower Power. I really think this collection of stamps from Sheena is spectacular. I find myself pulling them out and using them over and over and over again. (As you can probably tell from my projects if you follow my blog! lol)
I stamped out the sentiment with Memento Paris Dusk ink
onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock
and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did the same thing with the flower stamp. However, I did color the flower with my Spectrum Noir markers
using CG1, CG2, CT1 and TB5. After coloring them (I stamped out a few), I fussy cut them out.
I pulled out my Ultimate Tool
(which everyone should have) and made the bi-fold card base with dark blue cardstock.
I was recently at Target and I couldn't help but look at their tiny collection of scrap goodies. I found this American Crafter's Dots & Stripes 6x6 paper pad that I just had to have. I loved how the lime green papers worked so well with the nice dark blue cardstock base. As you can see this card went together super quickly. I layered the papers on my card base, added the sentiment, adhered the flower with a double sided adhesive square
for dimension and then finished up the front by adding a tiny bit of Stardust Stickles
to the flowers and a few Lettuce Skittles to a couple of the corners. (Get your Skittles HERE
I finished up the inside of the card also using one of the flowers I had made and two of the smaller flowers from Sheena's Flower Power set. I left an area blank so I could add a personal message when I mailed it.
When I made the Party Paws card
that I posted on Monday, I printed out a second shaped card paper to photograph for my blog post but when I finished up the post it was just sitting there on my scrap desk all cut out and ready to be made into a card. So of course I had to finish it up! I printed it out on different paper so it is a little brighter. I used Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock
instead of Luxury Centura Pearl Cardstock.
Both worked great and look good but I think I'm liking this one better. I love the crisp, bright colors. The LCP cardstock has a pearl finish which is gorgeous but softens the colors a bit. Tell me what you think.
1st card made with my Party Paws CD-Rom.
Well that is enough for now. I'm working on a double page layout that is almost done so that will be coming soon. Thanks for stopping and looking today.
Until next time...happy scrapping!
