Hey there! How are you holding up? I’m hanging in here.
Today I am sharing a new challenge with you. Hero Arts is hosting weekly challenges, to help us stay connected, and escape for a little bit in craftiness. I missed the first Stay Crafty challenge, but made it in time for the second!
This week, the theme is Never Seen Ink (products that have been sitting in your stash for a while, never used). This one is a bit tough, as I’ve pretty much inked up all of my Hero Arts sets at list once (you don’t have to use HA, but I wanted too). I came across a set called Make It Personal, that I hadn’t really used. I thought it would pair well with some Concord and 9th products I haven’t used before.
I’ve had this background panel hanging around for awhile. I made it by inking up C&9ths Herringbone stamp with a bunch of Distress Oxide inks, spraying it with water, then stamping it on Distress Watercolor cardstock. I decided to use C&9th’s Sew Scripty Thanks Die, and sew the sentiment with black floss. Next, I stamped Made With Love from the HA Make It Personal set below the stitching with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
I grabbed C&9th’s Crafty Dies in the recent Inventory Blowout Sale, and decided to use the scissors and needle to embellish the card. I die cut the needle and blades to the scissors from Gina K Design’s Silver Metallic cardstock. The handles for the scissors are MFT’s Blue Yonder cardstock, and the thread from some scrap black cardstock. I assembled the scissors and added the die cuts with liquid adhesive.
I added the watercolor panel to a Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card base and that was it! Another card I can share with some helping to keep the world running right now.
Have you been using your card making superpower? I hope so. These are the only cards I can really concentrate on right now. It’s tough, cause my son’s birthday is next weekend. I’ve got to figure out something to make him…
Thanks for stopping by, and stay safe!
