Stamp Ink Paper Challenge: In Style

Welcome to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Tuesday style! This post is coming to you from the road.  Yes, being retired has it’s perks and I’ve been out of the country for the last four days.  What in the world would we do without WiFi?

Sometimes, it’s not difficult to create a card for a sketch challenge, but it sure is difficult to choose which set you’re going to use.  Close your eyes and just pick one! That’s exactly what I did and I couldn’t be happier because it’s already one of my favorites.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

The Details:

  • Stamp it.  Seriously!, that’s how easy it was to come up with this technique (LOL). It’s what I love about layouts.
  • Where to place the sequin!? I think this was the most difficult decision I had to make for this card.  Wherever you decide to place your sequin, just remember don’t adhere them down to the carsick until you know for sure where they  belong.  Embellishments should add a balance to the card.  But in reality, does it matter? LOL, probably not, just don’t place them on the very edge of the card.  You’ll feel off kilter.

Butterflies: Live Laugh Love

Last weekend I was at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Event in San Diego and besides having a blast with my crafting friends, I met an extraordinary woman named Doris Martin.  A Holocaust Survivor, she beat the odds in life! Let me tell you, she was something else and I’ll never forget her.  She signed my book and as I hugged her she held me tightly and said in my ear, “Sweetie, with Peace & Love you have everything.  So live life, laugh always, and give away your love.”  Her words put tears in my eyes and I just had to share this with you.  I just started to read her book, Kiss Every STEP and I have to say, “I can’t put it down!”  You can get one yourself on Amazon.

Having visited Dachau in Germany years ago and remembering what I saw at the museum came flooding back as if it was just yesterday.  The weird thing was that I made the card a few weeks ago before ever meeting her and I found it lovely that she used the words on the card when I hugged her.  I think I’m just going to have to send her the card.  Be Blessed and Be Thankful!  Keep on Living, Laughing, and Loving!

The Details:

  • Simplicity is in the details.  Punch, Adhere, Stamp & Emboss and BOOM you’re done!  The particular Designer Series Paper on my card is no longer available, but don’t let that stop you!  Use your favorite or whatever you have on hand.
  • Butterfly punches are retiring.  Yes, they are being retired in May and they’re only available while supplies last.  So you may want to grab them now before they’re gone for good.  With a bone folder give the butterfly wings a little curl inward to give them the in-flight 3D look.
  • Embossing powder.  Use whichever color your heart desires.  The black one I used is retired by us, but you can get more colors here.
