I was encouraged to start posting some of my creative juices...lol.
Some of my friends call me McGiver......well that's another story.....
I am not very good in writing....but I do play a lot....and love to share....
I will hopefully be able to share and demonstrate some of my favorite passtime creativity. If you want to "scraplift", please do but do give my the "credit".
I am attending a meeting tonight....as always....at the last minute....procrastinator is my middle name!....I needed a "quick" Thank You card. as I had attended a card game "Friendship Night". Since I love making crafts.... I thought I'd check out my stash of craft stuff.....hummmm.
Well here is what I came up with::*simply click on photo to enlarge
Tuxedo black and (red) Lady Bug. Some times these clear polymer stamps "fleck ink" so I find using an eraser to roughen them up, wipe with a baby wipe ...then stamp as usual. Stamping Up inks do not seem to work well with these..Any of the pigment or craft inks, or chalks work great....I do prefer lately to use Memento inks. These are more easily available at my LSS. I cut the cardstock with the stamped images and fit onto a black cardstock, trimmed and then used my MM distress tool on the black cardstock edge.
The flowers are from Prima-I think I got these from Micheals (I love their jar they come in).....the 1/4 inch ribbon ,also from Michaels. The ribbon is "ATG" taped over a cardstock strip border punched with an EK Success "Card Suit" slender Punch. I saved the "confetti of the card suit to place randomly on the center of the flowers and tag. I used my Bizzy Bee tweezers with Quick- Dry Adhesive glue from Scotch ...the stamped image on cardstock has dimention foams , then I used my ATG Scotch adhesive to tape onto the card..as well as to tape the border and the ribbon. The tag is chipboard....and a bit heavy....so I added foam dimentions to it as well. .
The tag is cut using my Cricut from CTMH Art Philosophy at 1.5 inches. Oops I forgot to mention I distressed the edges using a sponge dabber and the Lady Bug Memento ink on both the card suit shapes stamped area cardstock and the tag. I misplaced my Thank You stamp so I just wrote on the tag.. I think I should of used THoltz Distress ink instead as those blend much better..well I did say I am kind of in a hurry...lol! I hope you enjoy this first post!
