Welcome Back!

Hello and welcome back! The last 4 months of  packing, moving, unpacking and getting settled here in our new home state of Illinois just flew right on by. I am happy to report that we survived the Polar Vortex of January 2019 and I am finally getting back into a creative groove in my new craftroom!

I am happy to say that I am starting back up as a member of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Design Team and for my first card created from scratch in 4 long months, I used the sketch you can see below...

This card will be my hubby's Valentine and uses two stamp sets that I got from CAS-ual Friday along with hearts I diecut from Spellbinders.

I repeatedly stamped "smooches" in 3 ink colors to make my own decorative paper. I had fun adding Liquid Glass to the hour glass figure, but then tried to adhere it to my card before it was completely dry, so the top cracked and the bottom smudged...I must remember patience the next time, lol! 

I made use of the "scrap" I cut off for the front and adhered it to the inside of the card -pretty way to tie it all together.

That's it from me for today, but I hope to be back here to share with you regularly again at least 2 times a month. Until next time~

  1. Love your personalized stamped "smooches" background paper, and your hourglass image along with the sentiment on the inside is perfect. Thank you for partnering with us at Double Trouble and hope that you will take a peek at our challenge and join us for other fun challenges.
