Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Rubber Stamp-N-Sticker ATC Swap

   I joined a swap called Rubber Stamp and Sticker. Both were to be used on the card that you made. I thought it would be good to use a rubber stamp once again, and stickers...I have a ton of those. So I jumped in.


   I started with a plain white card stock background. I first heat embossed with white embossing powder the tulip and leaves. Then using a toner pen I wrote "Be Happy". I placed a piece of gold foil over it and then ran it through a laminator. This was a new experience for be because I had never done either process before. Then using chalk I lightly colored the background light blue. I then chalked the tulip and leaves. Then using an ink pad I colored the outside edges. In finishing I placed a butterfly sticker hovering above the tulip. It was fun making this card because I got to experiment with processes that I had never used before. I think that my experiment worked out just fine. Everything worked out the way I had hoped.

   I think the cards that I received show that the others enjoyed this swap as much as I did. I hope that you enjoyed seeing them as much as I did.

Take Care

  1. Kathy, so sweet to see my work on your blog! Thats so cool! Thank you...a first time for me! Anyway I just want to let you know how I made the background, I used a paisley stamp and then embossed it. I then used gelatos and spread it around by rubbing it in with my finger, then took a wipe and wiped off the embossed areas. Thank you again for publishing my work.
