I hope you are having a great Thursday so far! We are having a fun day. This morning I finished the card I started yesterday afternoon, Yea! I did have to let my kids do a little stamping of their own in order to get mine done. Sometimes the extra mess is worth a little more stamping time They love making cards for Daddy and me. Now we are anxiously awaiting the dryer repair man!!
My House Mouse stamps I ordered came in the mail the other day and I have been dying to get them inky! I found a sketch challenge that I knew would be perfect.
I had fun with this card. I was able to use a lot of new stuff. I used SU! Spring Fling DP, which I LOVE, with wild wasabi and soft sky. I used a new Cuttlebug embossing folder (Swiss Dots) to emboss the soft sky strip. The House Mouse stamp I used is called “O Lucky Day”.
It’s hard to see from the picture, but I made the button using a Sizzix button die and SU! Crystal Effects. I spread a thick layer of Crystal Effects on a piece of DP and let it dry. Then I ran it through my CB with the Sixxix button die. I taped the button to a larger soft-sky circle and an even larger wild wasabi circle, punched button holes through all the layers, and threaded embroidery thread through them all to make an X. The circles are on a dimensional. I used my computer to make the sentiment then printed it on soft sky card stock.
Thanks for stopping by
