I am so glad it's Friday! I am headed over the mountains to have a quilting weekend with my friend Sherry! I haven't sewn in quite a while so I am excited to have nothing else to do but sew! Woohoo! I am hoping to get a set of Christmas stockings done. Weird, I know, but if I get them done now they will be ready for Christmas next year - lol! And I am sure we will find a little time for some retail therapy!
Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Retro Sketches. A very simple card and I just love these little critters with the word bubbles!! Here are the details
  • Card base is Naturals White
  • Layer of Naturals White with the top corners rounded with the 1" circle punch
  • Layer a strip of Sweet Sorbet designer paper onto Naturals White then tie a piece of Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon around it and adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Use the Apothecary Accents framelits to cut the shape from Naturals White and then trace around the same shape onto a piece of Basic Black and fussy cut that shape out for a mat
  • Use the Essentials paper piercing pack to pierce inside the cut out shape and then stamp the image from Life in the Forest using black StazOn ink
  • Color the image with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede markers
  • Adhere Basic Black shape to card then adhere stamped shape to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting from Just Sayin' in black StazOn onto Naturals White and cut out with the Word Bubbles framelits and adhere to card with dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
