Here’s to a great week ahead which hopefully includes some crafting for you. I find if I don’t get some crafting in each week, I’m pretty miserable.
Ladies often ask me how I’m able to carve out time to craft each week and sometimes daily…easily, I just do. I know it’s good for my mental health and sanity, so I consciously make time in my week.
My card today is a fun one using the True Gentleman Suite from the Occasions Catalog. I started off with Night of Navy cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the True Gentleman DSP pack. I then took another smaller pattern, matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock, and adhered it to the card.
Next I adhered a piece of Burlap Ribbon over the longer DSP panel. I used the sentiment from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set and covered the outside of it and the face of the fox in washi tape so that only the words “You’re a Fox” were uncovered. I inked up the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch.
I then stamped the fox from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut him out. I adhered the fox using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few True Gentelman buttons.
Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Don’t walk – run…
That is to the Retiring List – it’s now live and there’s A LOT to see!
All items EXCEPT for Stamps are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!
NOTE: You will see ALL ink pads retiring.
WHY? Stampin’ Up! has reformatted their ink pads. The new ink pads are easier to open and come with a new formula that prevents bubbling on the stamps!!!
