Anyway, I'm just posting a couple of projects I made the past week and posted at SCS. The first is my Americana paper basket with decked out with patriotic Unity stamp designs. The basket was made using Laura Canale's rockin' tutorial here! Wow, that lady is a genius, I tell ya! I first tried to make a basket on my own taking measurements and such from a small basket in my home---umm, BIG mistake! It was a total flop and I quickly got online to see if anyone with brains had tried such a technique! Sure enough, there was and boy, did I feel dumb after seeing how you really pull together a basket like this! My 4th of July Unity stamps is what I wanted to show off and I popped the images onto glitter star sticks for fun and filled my basket with caramel popcorn.
I also pulled together this golf ball card for SCS's Ways To Use It challenge this week, to make a masculine card. Well, my DH, Daddy and both my brothers are golfers (unfortunately, none of em make $$ doing it, *snort!*) and I know I saw someone else out there do a embossed golf ball using the CB tiny bubbles folder, so I thought, why not! I have been wanting to stamp Rupa Shevde's new golf bag and clubs images since I got them last month. The set is called "King Of The Grill" and is available at Gina K. Designs. This set will take care of all of your masculine card needs, it's the best! After cutting the largest circle from my Coluzzle template, I put the face of the card into the tiny bubbles embossing folder and left the backside out on the back of the folder, then ran it thru my Cuttlebug...easy a pie! I have 2, count 'em TWO, Copics! LOL! I am so proud of my 2 Copic pens and I used my Sand to color in the bag, the darker chocolate is a Marvy marker--what a difference, holy cow! I can tell you that building my Copic originals collection is now on the top of my priority list! Expensive--yes! Worth it--double yes!!
I hope you all have a most blessed and safe holiday weekend! Please come back and visit me on Tuesday for a big blog candy announcement! Hugs!
