I've Been Busy!

July 31, 2011

 And heres yet ANOTHER post for today! I've been getting things done that's for sure. Anyway, the card I have for you all now is going to be entered in to two challenges:) The first one is over at Sentimental Sundays where the challenge was to have a garden theme. The second challenge is the tic-tac-toe challenge over at The Paper Variety. For my tic-tac-toe I made a card, had some pink, and had faux stitching!
Check those two blogs out and now to the actual project!

This card was so fun! To start off I cut an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of kraft cardstock to make it 8 1/2 by 5 1/2. Then you score it at 4 1/4 to make an A2 sized card. Then I cut a 5 by 3 1/2 piece of white cardstock. Then I pulled out some stamps! The first one, the floral, is by Stampin Up! from the Nature Walk set. It is stamped multiple times using a Colorbox cat eye green. Instead of reinking the stamp I would do another stamp to get a lighter looking image. The butterfly stamp is also from SU! and it is from the Hope set. It is stamped in a Whispers ink. 

The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkado, Many Thanks stamp set. It is stamped in Chestnut Roan by Colorbox. I also added a touch of pink with my little button! Then I used my white gelly roll pen to make some faux stitching just along the bottom edge.

I added a ton of foam adhesive under the sentiment to give it dimension. Before doing that I used my bonefolder to create a wave shape to the paper. And make sure you do this after stamping!

That's it for today...well you never know!
Don't forget to check out the links above and all the goodies you can win at the challenges.

Have a good day!
