Sitting Here Missing You

Hey everybody! Happy Friday to you! I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned! I am attending my first cardmaker summit tomorrow (starting at 8:00 AM Mountain Time) and I’m very excited about joining the livestreams to see demonstrations from several well known stamp companies. We couldn’t livestream or watch videos at all without constant interruptions with the horribly slow satellite internet we previously had. Switching ISPs back in January was a smart decision – we didn’t know there were any other options available in this little town or we would have done it sooner, lol! I’ve popped in this morning to share the very first project I created back in April for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release! This super sweet ‘missing you’ card features the Chicken Gal Pals stamp set and is a quick and easy design.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner of both. I stamped the chicken and her nest on a Solar White cardstock scrap in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them. I stamped chicken wire down the left side of the layering panel in Delicata Golden Glitz ink and added a strip of Eyelet Outlet Skinny Red Washi Tape. I adhered the fussy cut chicken and nest, and then stamped the sentiment in black ink. The finishing touch was adding several Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals.

And one more peek… I’m loving this clean and simple card design created with a most adorable stamp set!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
