If you read my last post, you might be expecting a tutorial today. Sorry folks, I just realized I need to wait on that as it is part of my DT submission for Hampton Art this month. They will post the tutorial on their blog May 1st, so keep your eyes peeled, or go over there and follow them so you don’t miss it!
I did have an opportunity to play with some Prima papers that I picked up at the new Hobby Lobby in my hood! Boy, do they make it easy to infuse your projects with nostalgia! I’ve been dying to get my hands on some silhouette stamps, too. And on this visit to Hobby Lobby, I couldn’t resist – I even paid full price for a Glitz stamp set with the silhouette below, which I rarely do. This here be the queen of coupons haha!
Anyway, a bit of distressing, a bit of floral lovin’, some spritzing with my new favorite spritz, SMOOCH!!!, a tiny bit of fussy cutting and voila!
Over on Laura Bassen’s blog, she shows how to make this bloom – hers is very clean and there are a few cut paper pieces in the center. She has such a clean, fresh style that threads through her work. I really wanted to use this button for this card, so I omitted that part and shabbified it a bit – great technique!
I’m going to give Stamp Man a go with this one – this week it’s Shabby or Distress!
I’ve been playing around with my new Hampton Art/Doodlebug Stamp Set SC0474 – check out the HA blog to see more deliciousness from them – working on my CAS! If you don’t know, CAS stands for Clean and Simple – a challenge for me. So here goes with CAS-ual Friday’s current challenge based on a cute sketch!
And a detail -
I am so in love with that Heart Patch stamp that comes in the set! I should have gotten all the stamps they make with Hampton Art – they’re adorable!
Love kraft and my frost white pigment ink – it always is a good thing!
Well that’s all for today, folks! Have a great weekend! It’s supposed to hit the 90′s here in Vegas – ahhhh! This flower will be wilting!
