I’m a little early for a Saturday! That’s because I’m off to Allentown, PA today with my friend Sue to go to the Heirloom Productions Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts Festival. I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the crafty goodness that will be there! I will have a full report tomorrow and hopefully lots of pictures! Yesterday was a pretty quiet day. Little Daniel was at my parent’s when I got there after work and he was his usual mischievous self! Yesterday’s big attraction was the vertical blinds and how much noise he could make with them! Even when he is being a little terror he is still pretty cute! He got a new haircut too, here it is!
When I came home I retreated to the Stampin’ Galley and completely got lost in there! It was 10:30 before I knew it! I have to say that I do enjoy when I can just sit and create and not think about anything else! What are your plans for the weekend?!
Today’s card that I have for you is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…
I wanted to do some inking, haven’t done that in a while! The card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock. I used a piece of paper from the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration. Can you believe that Sale-A-Bration is almost over?!?! If there are any products that you haven’t gotten and still want you have a few more days! I took my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Night of Navy Ink to cover most of the paper. I then used a little of the Encore Gold Metallic to fill in where there were some lighter spots. My stars are a die from the Circle Card Thinlits and are cut out from the DSP. A piece of Vellum is wrapped around the top portion of the paper and then some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. I used the Simon Says Stamp Whishing Die to cut out some more Brushed Gold twice and adhered them together and then to the Vellum with Multi-Purpose Glue. I tried to take a close up of the gold in with the blue, it’s a little blurry but I wish that you could see it in person, it looks so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thanks so much for coming by to visit! If any of you are going to be at the show let me know! Have a super Saturday! 🙂
