Hi all, Patricia here….exhausted LOL! Â I have had 3 of my grandbabies most of the week now and I am plum worn out! Â Even though I wouldn’t trade my time with them for all the money in the world. Â They truly make my sun rise in the morning! Â But I did find time to make a card last week. Â Sorry I am so tired I am not going to go much into the making of this card but it was fun. Â I have had these stamps from Â Paula Best for a long time but haven’t used many of them so it was time to change that. Â I used the amazing Gold Pearl Linen for the base and Hot Fudge Pop Tones 65# for the mat. Â I stamped the image on one of my favorite Lustre paperline, Silk Silver Lustre and just lightly colored parts of the image with copic markers. Â No fancy shading, just kept the coloring simple. Â I used some designer paper (not sure which pad and tooooo tired to look LOL) for the rest. Â
The sides of the card was still a little boring so I stamped the border with Ranger’s Archival ink, not sure why it didn’t stamp as well as I like, not sure if it was because I used a clear stamp or what but definately not as crisp as an impression as I like but ended up liking the imperfection of it. Â I mean it is handmade so shouldn’t look like a Hallmark card right???? Â Yes that is what I thought too 🙂 Â Then I kept the inside pretty much the same, just changed the designer paper design but kept all the colors the same since it was chosen from the same paper pad. Â Added a spot of bling here and there and wallah ….all done!
The Tim Holtz saying was exactly the mood I was in and looking for so finished the card with that sentiment. Â I did end up rounding the corners after taking these pictures so you are going to have to imagine that LOL! Â I am starting to round all of my corners!
Okay off to bed….oh my goodness I almost forgot.
I know I have beent talking forever about something big coming up….well it just got BIGGER AND BIGGER AND BIGGER. But still finalizing a couple of things but the new news it going to blow you away so stay tuned for another week or 10 days….well worth the wait, I PROMISE!
