I've been busy, busy, busy lately. I'm all work and mom and no stamping time at all. The downside of being busy is that the projects that I want to complete start feeling like work instead of play because I have to make the time to fit them in. It doesn't help that it's spectacularly pretty in Atlanta right now and I want to be outside, at the pool, with a Mike's Hard Lemonade and a few good friends.
Anyway, enough excuses -- I'm behind in my blogging and here is my submission for last week's SCS sketch challenge.
Here is the sketch:
I happened to need a baby card and had some scraps available to make this one. I used SU's Bashful Blue, run through my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder, and rubbed with a white stamp pad. I used an overhead transparancy for the overlay. I didn't have the right size stamp for the sentiment, so I actually printed what I wanted in MS/Word and then traced it with a sharpie marker onto my acetate.
Lessons learned while making this card:
- It's really hard to cover chipboard letters with decorative paper if you don't have small paper files for the curved edges.
- Pay attention when adhering decorative paper to chipboard letters. You might find yourself working on the wrong side. I ended up with a backwards "y".
- If you give up on covering your letters, go to MS Word, type your letters at 200 pts (about 2 inches high) and print them with the mirror image setting on the back of your decorative paper. Cut the letters out and you'll have beautiful letters, in the paper of your choice.
