Why oh why must the weekend speed by so quickly?! I guess it’s true what they say… time sure does fly when you are having fun and that’s just what I had yesterday! I woke up a little late as you know, puttered around in the craft room for a bit, spoke to Andrea and then Taylor stopped by. Sue came and picked me up for lunch around 12:40 and we went to a deli in Seaford called Sequa for lunch. I had a panini that was really good and a bag of wasabi ginger potato chips that were delicious! We stopped at AC Moore on the way back to my house and I got some more Washi Tape (like I need that!) and a few more goodies. Back at my house I showed her the page that I did and the cards for this month’s class at Scrap-A-Latte. We looked at a few things on-line and then chatted for a while. She left around 5:30 and I went back into the Stampin’ Galley to work on my card for today’s challenge. I had gotten some new dies from Memory Box and Impression Obsession and wanted to play with them but when I finished the card I didn’t love it so I made another one! I’ll post both of them and you can let me know which one you prefer!
So, off to today’s card which is for this week’s Can You Case It sketch challenge…
The second card that I made has the usual for a base. I used some Antique Paper Distress Ink to dirty up the sides. The background is a piece of Crumb Cake and on the top part I adhered a piece of paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper. The two tickets are from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Very Vanilla and also distressed. I adhered them to the card with SNAIL. My strip across the card is a piece of Washi Tape that I got from Michaels a while ago, I adhered it to a piece of Whisper White and then to the card with some Foam Tape. The greeting is something that I saw on-line a few days ago and really liked so I downloaded a vintage typewriter font on the Mac and printed it out a piece of card stock. It’s trimmed and then I used the “Vintage” Ticket Corner Punch to punch the corners. Some more Antique Paper Distress Ink and a piece of Fun Foam behind it with some adhesive holds it to the card. I love that quote so much, I think that it’s very true!
The other card that I made also uses the usual base! The rectangle I used is from the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and cuts out a piece of Soft Sky, I adhered some Fun Foam to the back and then adhered it to the card. I cut out the birch trees from Whisper White and the cardinals from Real Red with the Impression Obsession Birch Trees Dies and adhered them to the card with 2-Way Glue, the cardinals are popped up on some Foam Tape. My XOXOXO is also cut out from Whisper White with the Simon Says Stamp XOXO Border Die and backed with a piece of Blushing Bride. For the hearts I used the Memory Box Stitched Hearts Layers Dies. The large heart is cut form Real Red and the small one from Red Glimmer Paper, they are adhered to the card with Foam Tape. My Love is also cut from Real Red using the Simon Says Stamp Small Love You Dies and adhered to the card with 2-Way Glue. Finally, some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are adhered to the card with Crystal Effects. I do love the birch trees, thought I think that they would be more fitting on a holiday card!
