Welcome to my new Blog!!

This is the official start of my blog.  I have spent the past few months transferring all the data from my website - whew!! ... I'm so glad that part is over.  Lots of work, but in the long run, I think the blog format will be much, much better.

Now I can get emails and comments easier and respond faster ... that's what the blog is all about - sharing information and how to's for those interested.

I hope you like the new format!

Loll :)


On to the card for today.  This is for the Friday's SCS "Free For All Challenge" (F4A109 - 3 or more!) ... and ... CAS-ual Friday's Challenge (CFC45 - pastels and black).  This card is made with all SU! products.  Hope you like.

"Rubber Duckies"

Stamps:  Easy Events, Short & Sweet - sentiment (SU!)
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Polka-dot DPS in Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Pretty in Pink (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Tombow glue, black mini brad, hole punch, square punch, pencil, ruler, eraser, and adhesives

I  drew a pencil line 1 3/4" from the top of my Whisper White cardfront.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the image three times along the line, spacing them evenly.  I erased the pencil line once my ink was dry.

I stamped the duck image again onto So Saffron polka-dot DP three times and cut them out.  I glued them on top of my main panel.

I stamped the umbrella three times, once on each of the three different pastel DP and cut them out.  I mounted them onto the my card front, popping them up with dimensionals to add depth.

I added a strip of Certainly Celery polka-dot DP and Basic Black cardstock to the front of the card.  I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black ink onto So Saffron DP and cut it out.  I added a brad at one end and then used my square punch to add the cut-out "V" at the other end (the punch cuts the end of the banner perfectly every time!).

I mounted the card front onto the card base of Basic Black.

The best part is that we can see an e-mail that has information (and pictures!) instead of a comment that you have put a new post. SOOO much work! Now you can spend the time stamping!!!
