I Wonder If My Husband Misses Me

So, I’ve spent the entire weekend thus far in my craft area. So much so that my bottom hurts from sitting in this chair! BINGO BUTT!!  I’ve crafted, I’ve messed with my new computer, external hard drives, etc. I feel somewhat accomplished. 🙂 Oh… and I also spent some time on Bloglovin, looking at blogs I used to follow religiously. Ran across some challenge blogs I’ve enjoyed in the past, so… I thought it would be a good idea to enter some.

This challenge is from ablognamedhero.  Ah, the One-Layer card!  I have to say… one-layer cards are NOT my favorite!  Why?  Well, if you make a mistake, it’s a lot harder to fix.  So, I attempted it anyway.  It took two tries though.  The first card I made I used Post-It tape to mask it off and well, the ink bled through right to the cardstock.  🙁  I won’t be using that for masking anymore.  I used the stamp set that was with the Simon Says Stamp – June 2o14 – Kit of the Month. The kit doesn’t appear to be available any longer, but I will link up the stamp set. Anyway, here is the card I made for the challenge!

I *REALLY* love this card!  I love the stamps, I love the  bright colors & the crisp edge.  I had thought about using a black marker to define the edge, but opted against it.  Have a fabulous Sunday everyone!!!

Peace Out!

You Brighten My Day – OWH Sketch Challenge #171

Hi Everyone.  I hope everyone had a great Monday.  Mine was okay as Monday’s can be.  LOL!  Actually, only had a half day of work as I went with J to some appointments, so it was nice that we got to spend some quiet time together.  Anyway, this post will be short and sweet as I vow not to stay up past midnight again tonight.  It makes for a very long day the next day.

So – A new Sketch Challenge from Operation Write Home! Yes!  Here is the sketch:

171

And here is my take on the sketch, using a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp & some yummy Hero Arts Ink!

At first I was fretting over the lack of coverage I got with the banner stamp, but I got passed it.  I still think it’s pretty.

See my supply list at the bottom of my post.

Here is another card I made using the sketch as well as some stamps from Unity Stamp Co.

I hope you enjoyed them!

CAS2 Day 7! – Single Layer Cards

Hi Everyone! I can’t believe a week has gone by already! I NEVER want this class to end!  Today we focused on single layer cards again.  Frightening, yes, I know!!!  You. Can’t. Cover. Up. Your. Mistakes. GAHHH!  It’s really a problem.  LOL!  I’m trying to embrace it, but… it’s really a problem. So… my first card was a #FAIL!  No big thing really.  I really didn’t have the appropriate stamp, so I tried to use what I had and it just wasn’t going to work.  My second card worked out pretty good… and here it is:

I used Neenah Solar White Cardstock cut at 4.25″ x 4.25″.  I mad the flower mask using a Spellbinders die and then sprayed with Mister Huey Sherbet.  The stamps used were Lawn Fawn & Hampton Arts. The ink was Hero Arts Mid-tone Shadow Ink in Orange Soda.
