About Me

I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

The Play Date Cafe Challenge 71 Card 02

This is a card that I did that works for both the Hero Arts birthday card challenge and the Play Date Cafe Challenge 71.  For this card, I started with a standard card base from shimmer black and white cardstock. Using some textured white cardstock, I stamped the Large Fabric stamp in Regal Rose ink (SU). I took a scrap of that black and white shimmer cardstock, and cut it to size, rounding the corners.  I cut scrap white cardstock a little smaller, rounded the corners, and stamped Happy Birthday in Regal Rose ink.  I taped it to the Large Fabric stamp, added some sheer white ribbon, and adhered it to the black and white cardstock. All stamps are Hero Arts.


  1. Very pretty card! Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe this week!

  2. The black is so subtle on this card... I'd love to see that shimmer cardstock IRL :) Thanks for joining us at the Play Date Cafe!

  3. Gosh, that is a gorgeous fabric stamp! THanks for playing with us at the Cafe this week; hope to see you again real soon, too!

  4. Way to let those patterns work for you. Great choice of a splash color. Thanks for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.


I would LOVE to hear from you.
