I know I’m supposed to be making Father’s Day cards (plus working on making cards from all my scraps) but I couldn’t resist digging in to my newest Basic Grey paper – Green At Heart.  I also couldn’t wait to use more of my awesome new Whipper Snapper stamps. 

I stamped and coloured several images today as I’m trying to get the hang of Copics.  I do enjoy how colourful the few I have are but they don’t match much of my stash at the moment…they’re so bright and most of my stuff is much more muted in tone. (including my cardstock)

Oh well, great excuse to be on the look out for either paper that matches my markers or markers that match my paper…

Here’s my card:

I made this for a lady on SCS who leaves SOOOO many comments for lots of different people who post in the SCS gallery.  She doesn’t just say “Nice card.” or “Cute.”, she sounds so enthusiastic about everyone’s creations that I’m sure it makes their day to see her comments.

On to the details:

Green at Heart PP, copics for colouring, rhinestones, a little glitter on the wings (not obvious in the photo), I even dusted off my stapler and used it on the sentiment.  I know some people don’t like staples on greeting cards but I think they have their uses.

I did lots of zigzag stitching on the card.  Some day I’ll have to try a different colour of thread but it’s just easier to use white all the time.  Life is short and I’d rather make a card whenever possible instead of stressing about the card being amazing and not producing as many creations. 

I’ve got to spend a little time sorting out my craft room as the new countertop is going in soon (still painting the “legs”..)  I’ll take pictures when it’s installed.

See you tomorrow!
