Saturday Afternoon Project

In between running to grocery and cooking (notice I didn't mention cleaning,) I finished this card. It was made for a challenge on Paper Therapy. http://papertherapy.ning.com/
This is a new site for paper crafters. Check it out. The challenge was to ink an embossing folder, and use your cuddlebug to transfer the ink to the embossed paper. A gal by the name of Lisa, has a great tutorial on the technique and how to expand it for use on scrapbook pages on Paper Therapy.


To make this card, I used my cuttlebug to ink emboss the square that mats the circle with the flower. I also used my cuttlebug to emboss the other mats. I stamped the flower and colored it with my Prisma Markers. I added a few flourishes and Swarovski Crystals for bling and it was done!

Paper
CTMH – Colonial White, Spring Iris, Garden Green, Sorbet
Stamps
CTMH – Aspiration, Playful Flourishes
Ink – Stamp Pads
CTMH – Garden Green, Spring Iris

As mentioned earlier, I didn't list cleaning as one of my tasks for the day. Time to go pick up some craft "debris" from my rec room floor. For Now, Happy Crafting!
