You are too kind.

Hi everyone! I’m back with another fun project this morning! A new challenge is live over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #22 – Anything Goes + Rubberband Stamping! Nope, I’m not out of my mind, lol! You really CAN stamp with rubberbands – either wrapped around an acrylic block or a brayer! I created a clean and simple thank you card using two sizes of rubberbands wrapped around a 3″ square acrylic block, and it turned out pretty neat!


I masked the top and bottom portions of the panel, inked the center with two light shades of distress ink, stamped in the center with two darker shades of distress ink, and then removed the masking paper. I stamped a large sentiment across the bottom and then layered the panel and attached it to the card base. I stamped large flowers on Valspar paint cards and punched them out. I affixed glitter gumdrops to the centers of the flowers and adhered them to the front of the card.


I embellished the inside panel with strips of the same cardstock used to layer the front panel and adhered a stamped/punched flower. I left the inside blank to write a custom sentiment.


And here’s one more look… I really like rubberband stamping! ;)

Quirky CAS

Hi everyone! I’m posting the new August Anything Goes challenge today on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project using the very cool Hero Arts Weird and Wonderful stamp set! I created a fun one-layer clean and simple friendship card for a Quirky… Oddball… One of a Kind… friend!


This card is really CAS. No layers. Doesn’t get much easier than this. I stamped the three bold sentiments from the stamp set in black ink, then stamped over top of them in Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I added five purple sequins for a little interest.


I kept the inside very simple with just a stamped sentiment. No layered panels this time.


Products used:
Paper/Cardstock: Stampin’ Up Whisper White cardstock
Stamps: Hero Arts Weird and Wonderful stamp set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Versamark ink
