In Which I Itch

I was going to call this "In Which I Embrace White Space", but that ain't happenin', as we all know white space makes me itch, so ...

I was looking at some expired sketches in my pile of unloved and neglected challenges and found this one from CAS(E) This Sketch!:

My first thought was washi tape (duh) plus one of my Hero Arts speech bubble sentiments. Too easy, right? Right. I decided to be contrary and not use washi tape. Also, I've been starting to pack in the craft room, and the first thing I did was pack the washi tape. Oh, please, don't be alarmed. It's still very accessible. It's packed in a clear storage box with a pop-off lid. Heh. I'm not that crazy.

But packing ... yeah. I've been sorting and cleaning re-arranging and all sorts of things these days. I start doing one thing, then BOOM - I'm off packing something. I might have a lot of crap.

Oh, back to the card. Actually, I made four. And I used pieces of Japanese paper from The Heaplet instead of washi tape.

Here's one of the cards:

That orange paper is actually a little sparkly. I love it. I made two of that one, and one of these:

Then one more with this piece of Japanese paper:

All the sentiments were stamped using Hero Arts Brown Bark. I did layer the panels with SU Early Espresso, but still: so much white. *scratches self*  I had to just walk away to keep from adding something else.

I think these will make good OWH cards. A guy could send these home, don't you agree? No fuss, no muss. I have an almost-full box of cards for OWH I need to send off before I move so these will help.

Okay, I'm calling it a night. Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: SU Early Espresso card stock, misc Japanese paper, and the following:


  1. They are perfect for OWH. I feel the same way about white space on my cards, but I don't mind it on other people's cards. Why is that?

  2. these are the most nekkidest whitest cards I have ever seen you make. I'm surprised you didn't develop a rash all over your body.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
