Wow it feels like I may be starting to figure out how to get our new schedule working...only took me a month! Sheesh! Some days feel like some what controlled chaos...which probably turns into complete chaos on occasions. I am definitely learning what nights I need to do crockpot meals! Then my son is being bumped up a level in his swim classes, so the schedule will be changing again! Ahhhh!
But I can find my sanity with a little crafting, so I was happy to sit down and make a card for the latest Card Patterns Sketch #135...which by the way, Paper Makeup Stamps is sponsoring!! So make sure to check it out and participate to get a chance to win some free PMS! I also get to show off some of the amazing Paper Temptress cardstocks...make sure to check out all of the amazing cards and projects that the rest of the Paper Temptress Design Team has created on the Paper Temptress Blog.
I kept the design simple so that the Paper Temptress cardstock could shine. The simple Love Heart from the Hugs & Kisses set from Paper Makeup Stamps was perfect. I kind of blended my three circles from the sketch together and then accenuated them with pearls. The heart was stamped on Iridescent Cryogen White with Versamark and embossed. Then I colored over it with a marker and punched it out. The beautiful Laser Silver Lustre cardstock that makes up the main face of the card is perfect since it has a subtle pattern to it.
Well I will be back next week with some exciting news...can't let the cat out of the bag yet! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
