Here’s my take on Unscripted Sketches #39. I’ve got quite a thing going with textured cardstock these days and probably sound like a broken record when I say I think it adds a touch of elegance to my otherwise very simple cards. The hearts were stamped on smooth cardstock, cut out, and attached to the card with foam mounting tape.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Holiday Red, Black, and White Daisy Textured cardstock; Black and Holiday Red ink pads; Impression Obsession Best Things and CTMH Say it in Style stamp sets; Cuttlebug w/Swiss Dots embossing folder; 3M foam mounting tape.
And here’s another … And, I think you can darned near see the textured cardstock in this photo. Again, very simple. The little bird was colored with markers, and the heart on the envelope was filled in with glitter from my Glitter Tower. If nothing else, with no lumps or bumps, it is one that can be put in the mail with no worries of the envelope being shredded or the recipient having to cough up a few coins because the USPS deemed it required extra postage.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Black, and White Daisy Textured cardstock; Black ink pad; Crystal Blue and Sunflower markers; Impression Obsession Heartlines stamp set; Tonerex Glitter Tower; Glue pen.
How was your day? Mine was a good one with the exception of the weather, which is horrendous. Cold. Winds gusting to 40 mph that literally take your breath away. And on the ground, glare ice from melting temperatures yesterday and Saturday. If the wind subsides, I’ll be OK. Such a price we poor Minnesotans have to pay for a couple of nice days.
One more comment about blogging, too. If I usually leave comments on your blog, and you’re not seeing them these days, it is because I can’t. For whatever reason, there are a few blogs that are causing my computer to crash, as in the “blue screen of death” pops up. It’s time to see if I can’t get my computer whiz kid to look at it again, but until that happens, I just wanted you to know I’m not being stuck up!
Enough jabber for tonight. I’m off to do some of the laundry that didn’t get done on the weekend and maybe eke a little something out in my corner. Enjoy your evening! Later…
