Hi everyone! I hope your week has been good to you so far.
It's been a quiet week at my work (which I'm thankful for!) so I've been trolling Pinterest looking for inspiration for our bedroom makeover. Right now, there's a lovely vintage rose color on the walls (which my husband can't stand) and very old yellow pine flooring as well as no bedhead because we sold it two weeks ago! So now I'm on the hunt for some good tufted headboard tutorials and wall color choices. If you'd like to share, I'd love to hear what colors you have in your bedroom...I need all the help I can get! :)
Today's card is bitter sweet for me. You see, it's my last card as an All That Scraps design team member. :( I had to make the tough choice to step down from the team because I was recently asked by an old friend to help out them out with some graphic work on a regular basis. It's a great opportunity to earn some extra money and help a friend at the same time. I'm just bummed I couldn't fit it all in! If things don't pan out, I told Christine I'll beg on my hands and knees to be let back on the team! Haha...seriously though, I'm not kidding!
Today on the ATS blog, we're sharing some new cards using the Mashi Muffin stamps. These stamps took a little while to grow on me, but I really like to color them now. My timing is impeccable! lol
To make this card I colored Witchy Willow with my SU reinkers and Distress Inks. Next, I made the base panel with some patterned paper I've been hoarding from Imaginations, called 'Jack O Lantern', edges sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, matted onto some PTI Kraft cardstock and stitched together. The vertical banner was done the same way, only the paper is from MME's Mischievous collection. The black horizontal panel is a piece from Making Memories 'Spooky Alley' collection, sponged with Frayed Burlap again and stitched to some black cardstock. After adhering those layers to the base, I added the jute twine and the sentiment tag, which is from the Halloween Sentiments set (and stamped onto some more MME paper). If the layout looks familiar, that's because it was borrowed from this week's Mojo Monday challenge #254.
I hope you've enjoyed all the cards I've made for ATS as much as I've enjoyed making them! I'm really going to miss those Meoples too! I'm sure they'll be at the top of my shopping list each month! :D
Thanks so much for popping in today!
