Sunday Scrappin’ July 26, 2009

Please join us over at Sunday Scrappin’! All you have to do is post your papercrafting “ta-da”s and “to-do”s for the week and participate in the optional challenges!

I just got back from vacation so I don’t have much to show. I did make a card for my grandmother’s 80th birthday before I left and I don’t think I posted it, so here ya go:


She likes country decor, so I kept that in mind when making this card.   I used this “Country Hearts” stamp kit (RubberStampede) that I don’t use very often due to the fact they are foam stamps and I don’t like foam stamps. 🙂 But the little squares make up a nice quilt look. I stamped on Martha Stewart PP instead of directly on the cardstock. One of the stamps had an extraneous ink mark, so that is how the photo corners came to be on the card, LOL. I actually like how it looks. I colored in the squares with colored pencils, and then added eyelets and ribbon (“pool” from Paper Source), and used some Martha Stewart jewel embellishments but stuck them to the ribbon so they’d look like charms (they don’t show that well in the photo, for some reason).

In addition, I am now a contributor at Going Green Greetings! Check it out for ideas on how to be a little more environmentally sound when it comes to papercrafting!


I’m getting caught up on work.  But I need to make a birthday card for my stepfather, so I’ll try to get that done this week.

    This is sooooo lovely!! My mom is a quilter, and she would LOVE to receive a card like this! You did an amazing job lining up those photo corners… I will have to try to CASE this, but I’m not thinking mine will turn out as beautifully as yours! 🙂

    I’m sure you’re grandmother just loved this hand-crafted card and like you said it is reminiscent of a beautiful quilt too; well done!
