This is my second post to share what I made during today's crafting extravaganza. The lovely ladies at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers have a new challenge up:
We are to make a music-inspired project. I immediately knew which stamps I'd use. You see, I've spent an inordinate amount of time in my Holiday Stuff drawer lately, becoming reacquainted with my holiday stash. While looking for something else, I ran across the images I used here:
Both stamps are from The Cat's Pajamas, and I've had them forever. They are both wood-mounted stamps, but I used a trick Jennifer McGuire showed us in today's video to just pull the rubber off the block, and I used my MISTI to stamp the image multiple times. I wanted it good and black.
The card layout was CASEd from the cards in this post. Sometime I forget how simple it is to just use two papers together.
The sentiment usually gives me fits. It's very cool. but impossible to put on a banner or to layer. I have always manually cut it out, and this time I notched the ends.
The papers are from a pack that jumped into my shopping basket when I saw they have foil on some of the pieces. The paper I used at the top of the cards is one of them:
After I finished the cards (I made two), I remembered I had originally stamped the dogs onto white card stock and cut them out with a stitched rectangle die. They were too white to use with the first set of papers. I didn't want to toss them, so I made two more cards, same design, just different papers:
I like these colors better, but I wish I'd cut them as circles now. Also, in hindsight, the papers should have been switched (top-to-bottom) so there would be more contrast for the sentiment. To attempt to compensate, I stamped it with Memento Luxe Love Letter and clear-embossed it. I think it's fine.
So, four more cards for my collection. And two more forgotten stamps used! Thanks to the gals at Snarky Stampers for the opportunity to dig around in my Holiday Stuff drawer and play!
Thanks for stopping by!
