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 #78

This is my card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #78.  I wasn't sure if my blue was close, but it looks like it... I started with Regal Rose SU cardstock, and stamped Antique Letter Writing (Hero Arts) using Victorian velvet Distress Ink.  I layered some butterfly patterned paper in blue on the left hand side of the card.  I took some white scrap cardstock, and stamped the flowers (Penny Black) in Barn Door Distress Ink.  I edged the white cardstock with the Barn Door Distress Ink as well. With a scrap of the blue patterned paper, I used a SU punch, and punched out the label, stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, and also inked the edges with the same ink.  I  adhered the white panel to the base cardstock, then foam mounted the sentiment.


  1. Great image; it looks so good in red. I had no idea they make punches for frames. It's a great frame to top it off. Thanks so much for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.

  2. Such a pretty CAS card made with the challenge colors! I like that label you used for the sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at The Play Date Cafe!


I would LOVE to hear from you.
