About Me

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

Happy Sunday peeps,

I hope your weekend is going well. I've been enjoying being at home after traveling last week for a work trip.

One of the things that I've done in order to do something crafty while on my work trips is to stamp a bunch of images from many different stamp sets onto card stock that I've cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I have a little plastic box that these fit into perfectly. I bring my box of stamped images along with my box of Polychromos colored pencils so I can do some coloring in the evenings in my hotel rooms. (I'm not a TV watcher and I will go the entire week without turning it on. I'd much rather read, or color. I do listen to baseball games on my Sirius Radio app while reading or coloring.) Bringing these supplies gives me a chance to practice coloring with pencils too. The images used to make the card in today's post are some from my little travel box.

The coffee cups are from the Simon Says Stamp set called Coffee & Tea. They are stamped onto X-Press It Blending card stock and colored with Polychromos colored pencils. I fussy cut them out and used SU dimensionals to adhere them to the card. The sketch is from the current CAS(E) This Sketch! challenge. The patterned papers are retired fall themed DSP from Stampin' Up. The fall leaves embossing folder is from Taylored Expressions, and the card base is SU heavy weight vanilla card stock.

Here's the inside. The images and greeting are Lawn Fawn.

Wowzers! Lots of different products to make this card. The inside is also colored with Polychromos pencils. The greeting is stamped in SU Early Expresso ink.

Even though it's still super hot out, I guess I'm ready to start making fall themed cards, like many stampers I've seen posting around blog-land recently.

Have a great Sunday afternoon and evening all. Thanks for stopping in,
