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

Miss You and Enjoy

Hi and happy Tuesday,

I'm having lots of crafty time this week as work is pretty slow. I feel so fortunate that I have my hobby to keep me busy during these strange times.

Yesterday evening I made a couple of cards for a couple of weekly challenges. This first uses the sketch for the current CAS(E) this Sketch!

I'm using some of the new SU 2020-2022 In-color card stock and inks, a new SU stamp/die set as well as an older SU stamp set here. I've made a Slim-line card.

The new stamp and dies set is called The Right Triangle. There is a small die that cuts out tiny triangles and I used it to cut the vertical element. I noticed that the way I used it, some of the triangles looked like they made flowers, so I cut it from a scrap piece of white card stock and glued some of the tiny white triangles inside the cutouts in the Bumblebee paper. The Bumblebee piece is backed with Just Jade. The large square is two of the triangles in the stamp set stamped next to each other and cut out with a SU square die. It's backed with the scalloped layering die. The gold flower is from an older SU set called Flower Shop. The flower is punched out using the corresponding SU punch. The sentiment dies are SU Well Written dies, cut x 3 from SU Basic Black card stock and stacked together with liquid glue. I added some SU Shimmery Crystal Effects over the tops of the words. Finally, I've used some of the new in-color enamel dots for embellishments.

Here is the inside of the card.

The second card uses the sketch from the CAS on Sunday Challenge. I wanted to use the new in-colors again and decided that the new Concord & 9th Scattered Dots Turnabout set would make a good background.

The coffee cup is from the C&9th Coffee Blend Turnabout set. As you can see, I angled the center square, I liked it better with the large coffee cup.

Here is the inside of this card. I've used another C&9th Turnabout set called Retro Petals for the sentiments.
