Card Recognition

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

thinking about ya


Do you ever just take the scraps that consume your craft space and create?  I saw the new Skipping Stones Design sketch this morning and went, "I can do that with the PTI Fabulous Frames" pieces sitting in front of me...  I love the idea of text as a background, so I'm playing along with the Lawnscaping crew, despite my lack of Lawn Fawn stamps on this card, I printed the Hero Arts digital friendship definition on vellum and faux embossing the PTI All Booked Up impression plate and added them at an angle (these pieces were in the scrap pile).  CAS-ual Fridays is having B&W plus one and I've used the Mr. Huey mist water cooler color to add a little green to the chevron and the circle die cut, subtle bit of green.  And did you see the news over at May Arts?  Go check it out and leave a comment, Bethney's got a fabulous giveaway to celebrate her annoucement.

Fabulous way to use your scraps...I'm not good about using mine at all. I have a scrap accordian file for colored scraps that I did into, but rarely keep patterned paper scraps.

Your card is awesome! And of course, I love to see you playing at CAS-ual Fridays!
