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

I Love You


Happy weekend. It's another hot one here in SoCal. I'm staying in, with the fan on, and stamping today.

The card I have for you today I made for my niece in Colorado. On Wednesday her kitty got out and had been missing until this morning. Thank goodness she was found, as my niece was just heartbroken. She has had Toulouse for around four years and takes her back and forth from home in Oregon to school in Colorado each year. Toulouse has been great company, as all pets are. So to celebrate Toulouse's return and to let my niece know I'm thinking about her, I'm sending this card.

The sketch comes from this week's Freshly Made Sketch #201.

I started with some pink card stock as the base and layered silver polka-dot vellum over it. Then I smooshed some pink and gray ink onto water color paper and cut it out with a Die-namics stitched rectangle die. A polka-dot embossing folder was used on the gray card stock element and the dark pink circle element was cut out with two pierced circle Die-namics.

Stamps: Three Amigos set by Mama Elephant
Paper: TE light and dark pink card stock, SU Smokey Slate card stock, Tim Holtz water color paper, SU vellum, X-Press It Blending card
Ink: Memento tuxedo black and Copics, Distress Gray ink marker and SU pink marker used for smooshing technique
Other: Die-namics stitched rectangle and pierced circle dies, Sizzix embossing folder, SU heart sequins, the Big Shot and dimensionals

Keep cool and thanks for looking,
