Obsessed With Scrapbooking, is having me guest design this week on her blog! Thank You for being so super sweet and kind, Joy! Plus, this couldn't happen at a more perfect time! Do you know why?? Emma, from My Creative Time, is having a HUGE release this week ~ YEAH!! Today is Day #1 of Sneak Peeks. Head on over to see all the amazing projects the MCT ladies have created for today! Click here for all the details. This release is seriously jam packed with endless possibilities! You can see more of my projects over at my blog, Scrapin Mom Of One Inspiring Little Boy, if you would like.
Okay I promised to keep my posts as short as I possibly can this week, but I LOVE to talk! LOL! I will list all my materials below my pictures all week. Just to let you know, I have a habit of adding a great deal of dimension to my cards, so that my A2 cards never fit into a normal A2 sized envelope! But never fear, that is why there are glassine bags. I will tell you where I purchase them in my list below!
For my card today I am using the new stamp set "You're Brilliant" . I wanted to play on the words of this sentiment by using a lamp and phone. With today's technology driven world, hearing a voice every once in a while is so nice! This stamp set has so many PERFECT sentiments on it! I decided I wanted to create a little scene here today! I pulled out my Kate's ABC cartridge and found this cute little lamp and table. I cut out the lamp shade twice and pop dotted for dimension. My sentiment fit perfectly in the MCT frame die. I even cut my paper in half to give my wallpaper a seam! LOL! Most of this card was done with scraps I had laying around! I scored a scrap piece of paper for my baseboard as well. To make my twine curly I used glue and water around a pencil! I also LOVE to clear heat emboss my sentiments. A real simple card right! There is also something on my card that will be coming up this week! Shhhh ~ don't tell anyone ~ I snuck this in!
