Pueblo Door on World Card Making Day!
Happy World Card Making Day!!!! There are a lot of blogs celebrating today and a couple of my favorites are Operation Write Home and Paper Crafts Magazine. I'm not involved with any hops but I'll be looking at the ones I follow when I get home from my dental appt.
I was asked to make some southwest themed cards for the AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ. I made this one between finishing another 15 cards to sell, 4 Halloween card kits, and prepping to make some sample cards for another class. I used a stamp by Terry Medaris called Prickly Pear Garden from the Southwest Adobe Collection. The pattern paper is some leftover from a class.
I used chalks to color the image and my hubby REALLY likes this. Hmmm.... maybe I need to get them out more. I have 5 different sets by Pebbles Inc. and some great pointy cotton tip swabs. I sprayed the image with some hair spray to set the chalk. I like how the buttons matched the paper, too. And added the white scrappers floss to finish them.
Here's a little closer look at the image. I purchased this stamp at a garage sale a couple years ago. I had to used an old mouse pad under my card stock to get a good image. The mesquite tree did not want to stamp cleanly. I think I need to put a note in with the stamp about this so I won't mess up more paper. And yes, I do use the back side of the card stock when this happens but I still don't like getting poor images. I have some more stamps that I purchased at that yard sale and plan on playing with them soon.
