You are amazing


Hi Everyone
Last night I felt like sitting down and playing. It was really nice to sit down and just craft to craft. Only problem is I made a huge mess for a simple card. Ahh even the huge mess made it lots of fun.

I pulled out a Simon Says Stamp die called Falling Stars. I must be on a stars kick this week. Because of the shape of the die it created this little indent in the cardstock when I ran it through my Big Shot.


I was just about ready to try again and thought I would try embossing it...Gotta love Paper Trey Ink's Impressions plates. It might be kind of hard to see in the photos, but it gave it a really nice texture and hid the indents from the star die.

Wrapping some seam binding gave it a really nice touch and the arrow from Stampin' up was a perfect...okay really the arrow was to hide a small tear I put in the cardstock. lol :)

I mounted the die cut piece to a standard A2 (4-14" x 5-1/2") card base and then pulled out a piece of black chalkboard style paper from the I heart summer paper pad by Simple Stories to do some white embossing with an Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday stamp.

Finally I added some dashed lines with my white gel pen and I was very happy with the results.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day

Today's card was a little misting fun with a Studio Calico Mask (I'm not sure where I got the mask from but it seems it's not longer available)

Washi Tape Fun

Hi Everyone,
Happy Monday, I'm late posting my video today. We had a little bit of a family weekend and went to Longwood Gardens here in PA yesterday and then today celebrated Scott's 50th birthday (It's actually Wednesday) with a late lunch and a little shopping this afternoon. It was a wonderful weekend :)

I have so much washi tape I figured I better getting using it so today's video is a little bit of washi tape fun.
