So we are switching things up this week over at Freshly Made Sketches. The lovely and oh so sweet Cindy Hall has taken us out of our box. Well, she has taken us out of our standard rectangle, at least. She came up with a plan to create elongated cards and we knew she was onto something. So besides being lovely and sweet, she is brilliant!
One of the reasons I had to have this Sale-a-bration stamp set (You Brighten My Day) is this little light bulb. What is it about certain little stamps that just speak to us? I just don’t have anything like this and I’m so glad I was able to get it. The fact that it was free…well, that makes it even better!! But I digress. I stamped this little bulb twice. Once on a scratch piece and once on a piece of Whisper White cut to 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2. I colored the one on the scratch piece using my Daffodil Delight Blendies (these are currently unavailable for order pending SU working a quality control issue). I cut it out and popped it on a Dimensional. I took some of the washi tape from the So You Project Kit (a work in progress that I’m getting really excited about, by the way) and used the washi in place of the scallops. I tied on Black Baker’s Twine and a Daffodil Delight Button. Then I cut a base of 5-1/2″ square and folded it in half. I put a little strip of Painted Blooms DSP at the bottom and popped the image panel up on Dimensionals. This card makes me happy and I know just who it is going to!
Here in Northern VA we have been having LOTS of snow day. Lots of them. In fact, I think tomorrow will be another. So after too many hours of Minecraft (*smile*), I found something else for the boys to do. I’ll be back tomorrow to show you. Until then, I’m glad you stopped in today. Hope your day is great!
