I Wish I Could Backspace

October 27, 2011

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I hope that you have had a great morning so far!  Josh & I spent the day together yesterday, then went to church last night.  Our close friends who have just recently gotten engaged have both sets of their parents in town right now, so we went over to their apartment to hang out with everyone and have some yummy pizza!  It was a great day!

I have my card for CPS Sketch #241 this week, where we are being sponsored by My Favorite Things.  I adore this stamp company, and their stamps & dies are amazing!!  I have created my card for some other challenges as well...which will be linked at the bottom.  Here is what I created:
"I Wish I Could Backspace" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (raven, kraft) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found 2 "Sunshine" 6x6 paper pad)
Doily: Wilton
Tag: Making Memories
Stamps/Dies: My Favorite Things (Just My Type set)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Ribbon: Pebbles Inc.
Twine: May Arts
Button: craft supply
Pearls: Kaiser Craft

Instructions:  Make card from black cardstock.  Cut texted paper slightly smaller and adhere to the front.  Cut a strip of damask paper, and layer to the left side.  Distress ink the edges of a tag, and adhere to the middle.  Distress ink a doily and layer on top of the tag.  Diecut the typewriter and paper, then distress ink the paper cut.  Stamp the image & sentiment to each piece, then adhere them together.  Layer the stamped image to the top of the doily.  Tie a bow from brown ribbon, and a double bow from twine.  Layer the two bows together, then thread a button around the middle using twine.  adhere the bow to the right corner of the typewriter.  Add three pearls to the lower left corner of the typewriter to finish.

Well, that is everything I have to share today!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day!  ♥♥♥

Until later,
