Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Birthday cards, stamps, Prism cardstock and Scenic Route. Ahhh yes, Scenic Route. It’s so sad to see them close their business, but I can understand doing so during such hard and uncertain times.

Stamping is such a stress reliever! I’ve spent all day doing housework/spring cleaning or whatever you want to call it. To relax to me, is to stamp! I’ve taken a couple of my recent acquisitions, put them together and met a cool sketch challenge on Card Positioning Systems (CPS). I used sketch #123.

I’ve stamped and embossed with detail embossing powder (the really fine powder meant for skinny lines, text and those really intricate images) the 3 party girls (Unity Stamps). The foundation paper is Prism cardstock. The patterned paper and chipboard “wild thing” is Scenic Route. The dot circle and saying (The Stamps of Life) are stamped with Tsukineko ink.

Thanks for stopping by today!

The third week of the Unity Bachelor challenge is drawing to a close. I’m not sure about this card, but polka dots and plaid was the theme. I’m also using this week’s sketch from CPS. Thanks for the inspiration!

It’s funny sometimes that what I think is a so-so card, people love and it gets published. That just shows you that you should submit everything, all the time!
