I had grandiose plans for Saturday, which was World Card Making Day. Usually, I am out of town on the 1st Saturday of the month, but there was a change in plans, so I thought "I'll stamp all day." Instead, I ended up working on my speaker blog posts, since I have 2 presentations later this month. (It's Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month, so I shared some thoughts here.) BUT, I did manage to make 4 cards, then 2 more yesterday.
My first card uses the Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen here. I had only glanced at my reminder email, knowing I needed a pennant. Now I see it is lower than the top of the card. Oh well...I'm happy with the results any way! As I look at this, I realize I still need to finish off the inside of these cards before I mail them.
The second card uses a SCS sketch found here. It's definitely modified because of the size of that quote. In addition to WCMD, Saturday was the Feast of St Therese of Lisieux. She's a "rock star" among Saints in the Catholic Church, known for her "Little Way." Mother Teresa's (now St. Teresa of Calcutta) quote here is actually inspired by Therese, so I thought it was a perfect day to bring out this stamp.
Each feature "Paisley Petals," like my header on this blog! One of my favorite ways of using a lot of dsp (especially if I have been hoarding it for a long time) is to use sketch challenges. I only did that with 2 of the cards; the others were made with no challenges.
The materials are as follows:
- Card stock: river rock, bravo burgundy, not quite navy, whisper white, and very vanilla
- Ink: not quite navy, river rock
- Stamps: Stampabilities (Praying), Mother Teresa quote from a big box store, unmarked
- Embellishments: bakers twine, enamel dots, brads, twill ribbon, taffeta ribbon
- Tools: Beautiful Wings embosslits, scallop circle punch, Vintage wallpaper embossing folder
While I didn't stamp as much as I thought I would this weekend, I am very happy with the cards I did complete. Thanks for stopping by!
