About Me

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

 Happy Friday Peeps,

Yes, I'm all about TGIF this week. Besides my usual work duties, I was covering for my manager while she was on PTO this past week. Not that it was too bad, but still some issues to take care of.

I had not done any stamping in quite awhile. Instead, I finished my project of un-mounting all of my wooden SU stamps and putting them into plastic sleeves. I cut white card stock to fit the sleeves and stamped the images in each set so they can easily be seen. I also ordered some thicker mylar sheets, cut them so that I could stick the unmounted stamps to it in the sleeve. It's all wonderful. My next project is to take the sets from the DVD boxes and do the same. That will take up even less room. Not sure when I'll start that part of the project though.

I wanted to make a card for Laurie's Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at The Paper Players, but I didn't get to it until last night after dinner, hence the very late posting.

I choose to use the vertical options of die-cut, red and stencil to make my card. The background heart panel is made with a SSS stencil and a blending brush. The ink color is GKD Red Hot. The large die cut heart is from SSS and is cut from SU Poppy Parade card stock, and the flower die is from Pink Fresh Studio. The XOXO die is from either SSS or maybe Reverse Confetti, I can really remember. I cut it 3 times, glued the layers together then glued them to the card. I brushed some Nuvo glitter on and then covered it all with Glossy Accents, a technique inspired from watching Jennifer McGuire videos.

Here's the inside, stamps all from SSS.

The card base is GKD Blue Denim and on both the front and inside I used the GKD Master Layout 2 dies to cut the white stitched panel and the shadow of Poppy Parade.

Have a great Friday and weekend, and thanks for looking.

  1. Coleen, this is soo adorable. Love the embossing on the heart and the stenciling is perfect! The inside of your card can be another card design all by itself. Thank you for joining us at the Paper Players this week.
