Handbasket?

 Hello All,

For today I will be playing along with As You See It Challenge. I have been wanting to use this stamp FOREVER, and now is my chance. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

As stated below this card took ten minutes and forty-six seconds to create! My craft-table is ALWAYS messy with remnants of past projects scattered around. So, I grabbed a piece of metallic bronze cardstock, then my basket embossing folder and ran it through. I quickly took a gold metallic ink pad and grazed over the highpoint of the embossing.

The banners are extras of what I had laying around my craft area. I have been doing a lot of fall cards so coordinating the colors was a cinch. Trimmed some down and taped them on the basket weave base. Taping versus gluing took a less time. Stamped the sentiment die cut to show stitching. Framed the sentiment with black scrap cardstock.
DONE! 

I love this stamp's sentiment. It has always made me giggle and hope it does the same for you.

Challenges Entered:
As You See It Challenge: #259- Speed Humour
Time: 10min.46sec.

Retro Vibes

 Hello All,

For today I am playing along with INKspirational, Fusion, and  Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This simple card of peach stripes and retro shapes is a blast from the past.  The stripes remind me of socks from the 1970's time period. I was very young then but I do remember them well. 

The mini slimline card features a retro-style sentiment. I die-cut its shadow then took that die-cut and die cut the sentiment. This gave a nice outlined image showing off the peach-colored stripes.

The places where I had to add a center of a letter are clearly illustrated. I die-cut another sentiment and used liquid glue to for the center of each letter. I then placed the die-cut directly in place and pushed the centers in their place. 



Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes are headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.


All the best,

Seasonal Bloom

 Hello All,

Today I will be playing along with the Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches Challenges. I do hope you enjoy my card. Enjoy!

 I think the look of color on kraft is so pretty and this is no exception. The flowers seem illuminate from the page.

 I layered the coordinating stencil on top of the inked image and brushed on white pigment ink, let it dry and colored the scene. Placed it back on my MISTI  and stamped it again using Versamark and heat set it in gold.

The gold embossing was the last step before finishing this design.
I stamped the image using Versamark ink.
