For You Card SS DT entry 3


This is the card I made for the Serendipity Scrapbooks DT call. The call ended last night at midnight and now all there is to do is sit and wait! Kristen said we would know by August 1st at the latest! I am soooooooo glad I have a workshop tomorrow and Tuesday to keep my mind off of it! I am so happy with how this card turned out!


I used my SU set Fresh Blooms/Fresh Cuts - my brain is foggy I can't remember! It is the preview set you could order in June. I wasn't that excited about it until stamp club and we used it and I loved it!!!! Had to have it! Maybe it's good I am not doing a club anymore! Everytime I would go with my list in hand and wind up adding to it! This was a pretty good addition I think! Not badly priced and a pretty unique set. The big image is like a background stamp but smaller - lots of detail! I inked it up with my brayer - such a wonderful invention - in soft sky then inked just the edges in choc chip. I stamped it on Whisper White then cut it in pieces which I matted on a piece of Soft Sky. I then matted that on a layer of distressed choc chip another layer of soft sky distressed and finally a choc chip base. This card is 6x6 - definitely a hand deliver. The sentiment is stamped on white in choc chip punched out with the Designer Label punch which perfectly matches the Stylized Silver hardware that was in the Spring mini - I so hope they put it in the Fall Catty along with some more like it! I don't know what I 'd do with NO hardware. I threaded soft sky double stitched ribbon through the openings and tied a little bow (so gonna miss the IN colors) and added some choc chip wide grosgrain behind it. TFL!

Tools:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Choc Chip, Soft Sky all SU
Stamps: Fresh Blooms/Cuts (please tell me what the name is and I will fix it)
Ink: Choc Chip, Soft Sky
Accessories: Stylized Silver HP Hardware, Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon, Choc Chip wide grosgrain ribbon

Who is the Krafty Mama?


Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
