Hello - thank you for stopping by. So the AC hasn't been working very well in the house and you all know I live in sunny FL. So to say the least, we've been doing all we can to keep it cool - closing all the blinds, keeping unnecessary heat sources off (lights, oven, etc.) and so that has meant everyone in the house is rather sleepy. So it was a perfect time for me to just take it low and slow on crafting anything. This card literally took a several hours to complete because only a little bit would get done between one nap and the next! LOL
Yesterday I was out running around getting some errands done and my wuz-band (definition: n. if you liked him, he's your husband, but you don't but you're not divorced yet) text me to ask I'd pick up a book light for him. Well, I was right by Books A Million, so OK. I also grabbed an issue of Cards & Papercraft magazine - inside was mini stamp set by Altenew with matching dies. This is what I came up with....
The card challenge at CAS-ual Fridays said to use flowers and the color challenge at Color Throwdown said to use kraft, green and cream.
My card features the Vintage Rose (build-a-rose) stamp set by Altenew, stencil I got on Blitsy, Old Paper Distress Stain, Hello die by Pink & Main. The sentiment I cut out from Ivory Coast card stock and from kraft card stock. I then layered the two slightly off so that it created a bit of a drop shadow.
This is a really simple card and would be an easy one to mass produce. I also made my own stamp tool that is reminiscent of the MISTI tool - which I will never own (unless gifted to me). The mini one alone is $50. I could do a lot of damage with $50 then to spend it on just one tool. Watch this video, and you'll see how you can make one yourself for under $8. You can get the supplies here.
Thank you for your visit - I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today.
