I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

For the Record, You Rock!

Hello and Happy Sunday all,

It's been a bit since my last post. We took another vacation at the end of July and were gone for 10 days. We went to spend a week "down the Cape" with our very good friends who live in Mass. They spend a week each summer with their kids on Cape Cod. We try to go with every other year. It's one of those relaxing vacations where we hang at the cottage, do puzzles, read, cook, play games, veg at the beach, and do some shopping. Always a wonderful, wonderful time.

This is the first weekend since our return, and I had some stamping time yesterday evening. I thought I'd make a card using Jen's August SFYTT and some of my Reverse Confetti stamps. I'm loving the design of Jen's stamp sets!

I used black craft ink to stamp the skulls and records, then embossed them with clear EP. I'm not sure if the ink is drying out or if I waited too long to put the EP on, but some of the records did't get good coverage. It didn't look too bad, so I elected to use the panel. It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I used Spica Glitter pens to color in the flowers and leaves on the skulls and the wings on the guitar. IRL it looks quite sparkly.

The lower panel is made with Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Flags STAX dies and the cross panels are made with Die-namics regular Fishtail Flags STAX dies. After putting all of the panels in place, I added a little extra sparkle with some sequins and a large crystal heart in the center of the guitar. I notice that the current Catered Crop Recipe Swap challenge is Sequins. This card will work for that challenge as well.

Stamps: Inner Rock Star set by Reverse Confetti
Paper: SU Very Vanilla and Soft Sky card stock and SU More Amore DSP
Ink: SU black craft ink, SU Raspberry Ripple ink, Spica Glitter pens: light blue, pink and silver, Copic BG11, R35, R37

I hope your Sunday is fab. Thanks for looking in,
