That Body




Today's card is a really simple card featuring one of Unity Stamp Company's stamps from their April Kit of the Month. As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I wanted to use it first. The background stamping is very subtle in vanilla pigment ink, using a Paisley Flower, another Unity stamp from the Floral Fantastical set. The card stock, designer series paper, and embellishments are from Stampin Up! I have to say that I really like their new line of corduroy button brads! I don't tend to use many buttons on my cards because it seems more akin to a country charm look...and I don't tend to do that much...but the corduroy seems more earthy, which is a style I DO tend to do more often.

My first attempt to create this card incorporated some zig-zag stitching on my sewing machine, but OH MY GOSH....it just wouldn't cooperate! So, after several attempts, with the clock ticking away into the evening, I settled on the above, which I believe turned out pretty. And I'll be able to complete the remaining ones I need for one of Vivian's swaps.

I can see myself using this particular sketch/layout more in the future, because it quick, clean, and simple. And the results are charming!

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!
