About Me

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

Under the Weather?


I hope you are all have a good week so far. I had to do a fair amount of driving today for work, and the freeways were NOT fun. But, I made it there and back without issue other than the stop and go.

I made this card on Sunday evening using some new Lil' Inker stamps and dies. Turned out pretty cute! The sketch is the current Sunday Stamps challenge. The theme is Banner Love Take Two and the sketch is a good one.

I started with some bright and cherry patterned papers for my get well card. One of my long time customers had an appendectomy on Saturday, so I thought this would help to cheer her up.

The owl is stamped with Memento and colored with Copies. I cut it out using the corresponding set dies and popped it up using dimensionals. The cross-stitch circle die is from Die-namics and the scalloped circle die is Spellbinders. I thought the scallops went well with the flower shapes in the patterned papers.  I tried bending the sentiment so it stamped along the edge of the white circle.

Here's the inside:

Since the theme is "banner love," I kept it on the inside too.

"Hump Day" tomorrow which means the end of the week is close.
