I am a SAHM of two adorable children, wife of an incredibly supportive, wonderful man and breast cancer survivor. I fell in love with stamping in 2006. I've been avidly card-making, playing with markers, paper, scissors and glue since then. It's my therapy in my pink craft room!
Thanks so much for visiting!
The last challenge of the day was to pull a card we had made and redo it. After flipping through my blog, I saw many I could have redone, but opted to redo my husband's Valentine's card from 2009. I had only started blogging that year and was quite green yet in my techniques. Below is the original card. I opted to make it ultra CAS -- I used a white card base and rounded the corners, which is very trendy right now. My hearts are punched with the PTI punches that coordinates with Heart Prints. The hearts are Gelato hearts on watercolor paper. I stamped a sentiment from the set, added a few rhinestones and a bow.
For the final decade challenge, we were to create a note, like those we passed in class back in the '80s. I know I did and knew how to fold them, but I was so tired by this point! I created one of the paper footballs using a piece of Doodlebug designer papers -- it fits so well with the 80s. I just attached it to a little glassine envelope that is lined like notebook paper. Inside the envelope I included a little tag using the Tag Sale #14 die.
The 80s were definitely my decade! I opted to make another 3x4 with the cute sunglass image included in the SAF set. I stamped it multiple times, using Hero Arts neon inks. I added in some of the tiny & cute sentiments.
My mojo was waning by the 60s and this was so not my cup of tea. Somehow, I think it all works.... I used lots of the dies included in the 60s kit and the sentiments. The designer paper was also included in the kit. Challenge Submissions PTI SAF 2014 - Challenge #12 Rad Ad Looks
Going in to the 60s, the first challenge was to make stencil layer with gradient shades of card stock and ink. I opted again for a little 3x3 and used the Love Potion set instead of the included 60s kit. I am not sure I got the desired effect, but I think the card is cute anyway. I stamped each with the grid stamp that was included in the 60s kit.
