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

I Like the Way You Roll

 Happy Saturday evening,

I hope you are having a nice and relaxing weekend. I had some chores to do this morning, but after finishing, I spent a few hours in my craft room playing with another new Gina K Designs stamp set from her recent release. 

This set is sushi themed. Kind of like me and coffee, which I don't like, but I love coffee themed stamps, I'm not a sushi fan either, but I just couldn't resist this super cute set. Using the current Freshly Made Sketches layout, here's my first card using it. 

I have a bunch of japanese paper that I got years ago at a department store in downtown Honolulu. I pulled out this pretty red with flowers to use for the center panel. It's cut with the Gina K Designs Master Layout 2 die and matted with a piece of Blueberry Bushel card stock. The sushi rolls and the soy bottle are stamped using Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics, then cut out using the corresponding set dies. I used a SU embossing folder to make a "bamboo" tray. The sentiment banner is also a die from the GK Master Layout 2 die set. The greeting is stamped using VersaMark and heat embossed using white EP.

For the inside, I used the Gina K Designs Fan stencil with SU Pistachio Pudding ink. I stamped more images from the set and made another "bamboo" tray using an older SU die.

I think this one turned out super cute, but that's what happens when the stamps are super cute.

We are headed over to friends to have a social distancing dinner of pizza and salad, and of course, some wine. Thanks all,
