Marathon # 13

The flurry of activity continues here at The Crooked Stamper homestead. I have managed to mix cleaning and stampin, if you can believe it! This card, for example:

was made as the result of me being a little crazy from seeing that stamp set on my Living Room floor (in the overflow area) and not having used it yet, which is why it was still out. I grabbed it, along with two sheets of patterned, textured card stock from the book on the Scrap Heap, and a sheet of Class A-Peel stickers (partially used) and set to work.

I'd seen the stamped-off horse eons ago, which is why I got the set in the first place. I think I 'earned' it from my SAB sales, because it does not meet my 50% rule - I only like (and have only mounted) two of the stamps in the set. So I did the stamped-off horses thing, then layered it on a piece of DS paper from the Bella Rose pack. I thought the torn edge worked with the horses.

I had originally stuck the sentiment directly onto the card stock, but it got lost so I put it on Naturals White instead and punched it out with the SU Word Window punch.

Then I cleaned the horse stamp and put the set away. It's about time, too!

Next up - what to do with those 3 1/2 x 12" pieces of card stock left over from that last effort? Well, while putting some stamps away in The Other Room, I ran across a few that I remember were hot sellers at this show last year, so I decided to make some more cards with them. This next one is way fancier than the version I made last year because I actually used my Nestabilities to cut them out and my Copics to color them this time.

And that color combo with the red and purple? Straight off the SU Color Wheel. At first I thought red & purple - blech! But it works!

Next up: another irreverant card, plus maybe - MAYBE - a little peek inside The Other Room. I will NOT show you the whole thing, but I might share the clean corner I just created on the table. :-)
