I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was spent running around getting these kiddos ready to start school at the end of the month with a little crafty time thrown in- so it was just about perfect. ;)
I am continuing my mission to put to use previously uninked stamp sets, affectionately referred to as "A Month of Neglect" and today, I have a card that uses 2 of such sets- Paper Smooches Tri-balation and Feline Friends.
I adore the fun patterns Kim designed for the Tri-balation set and I think I was "saving" it for the perfect design inspiration or occasion. One of the lessons I am learning through the Month of Neglect is not to horde crafty supplies in anticipation of perfect- perfect rarely happens. (truth)
So I just inked it up and stamped the borders with some Hero Arts inks (Lime Green, Soft Apricot, Tide Pool and Soft Granite). Next I decided the card needed a little something, so I added one of the cats from the Feline Friends set in black ink.
I die cut a Word Bubble and stamped the sentiment (also from Feline Friends) inside the bubble. I love that the font has sort of a groovy, tribal feel to it.
I added a few strips of orange card stock as a mat and adhered the stamped panel to an aquamarine card base.
Oh and before I go, I wanted to announce the winner of the $10.00 Waffle Flower Crafts gift certificate. Random.org told me the winner was #2- Marcie S. Congrats Marcie! I will be sending you an email!
Well, that's all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
