I scrapped!!! Well, I made a card!!! I haven't touched my scrappy stuff in so long that it just felt GOOD to make this card!!! I was inspired by two things (other than my longing to play with my papers and such): a.) The challenge this week at the Cuttlebug Spot where my good friend Aymee is part of the DT and b.) My new stamps I got today after ordering them at the end of March and thinking the order was lost!!! I just love the MFT Who's that Girl stamps and when I saw this set a while back I knew I just HAD to have it so, Tina at Imprintz (which is going out of business in June) ordered them for me along with a few other sets and I got to pick them ALL up today (more than I realized I had ordered........ooopppsss)!!!

OK, the challenge this week at the Cuttlebug Spot was to emboss something that you don't typically emboss when making cards - i.e. vellum, foil, acrylics, etc. I chose to do foil since it was the most readily available thing with us in the middle of packing for a move and I used the Houndstooth CB embossing folder to give it the texture befitting a card for a man. I then stamped my image 3 times: 1.) the background/wallpaper 2.) the carpet 3.) the image to color and then layered them all to give it this cute look! I hope you like!!


That is all the crafting I've done but I have one more card to get made before the final packing of everything for the move next week but I won't be posting it til the 1st!!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!!!

this came out great!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
