Did you know that tomorrow is International Jazz Day?! That is our theme for this week at Crazy 4 Challenges - music! Use music designer paper, musical notes, - be inspired by a song - whatever musical moves your fancy!
Hey there - My lovely daughter Marcie Sharp has invited me to Create Together and I was most happy to oblige!
Marcie gave me this inspiration piece to work with and one rule - NO PATTERNED PAPER (eek!) and honestly, I almost went over and told her to pick another one lol! This is not really my taste, but I'm a professional - right? - right?? - so I made it work.
I started out using the SSS Falling Stars die and then it just evolved from there. Since I could see Birthday in those stars, I brought out my Crafter's' Companion Sara Signature Happy Birthday stamp and Dies.
The balloons are embossed - isn't that awesome!! One swipe through the Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and that balloon was cut and embossed - perfect!
The sentiment is from Sara Signature stamp set - love that font!
That's all I have today - make your way over to Marcie's Blog - Cardmakin' Chaos - and see the awesome creation she has put together!
Good day - I am finally posting our Crazy 4 Challenges post - Blogger seems to be having a childish fit and my posts won't save, but I am going to go ahead and see if it will publish ----ugh, technology!
This week at Crazy 4 Challenges, we have a sketch challenge and I loved putting this one together!
I die cut three rectangles with a small die, and using the Verity Rose stamp set from Crafter's Companion, I stamped the beautiful rose three times onto the Crafter's Companion white watercolour paper.
I watercolored each rose and then added sparkly glitter to each rose. The sentiment is also from Crafter's Companion as is the Verity Rose patterned paper - love this paper!
I am a farm wife with a love for stamping and golfing. I have a wonderfully supportive husband, (with his OWN expensive hobbies - thank goodness!) 3 fabulous children, all grown up, and three precious grandsons and a granddaughter, who have us wrapped around their fingers and toes! We are retired from egg farming so now I have a ton of spare time to stamp!
