It is time for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge! This week's challenge is to get inspired from the Stamptacular Designer's cards! Check out the link and take a look at all of the designer's cards and be inspired! My idea for a source of inspiration is to dig out your stash and use some of those forgotten items. First of all, I apologize for my less than active blogging this past week. It has been a busy week. I was sick last weekend and out of work a couple of days this week. I started feeling better by week's end. My dd was in a school play and I attended two of those later in the week. I am so proud of her and the whole cast. They performed RUMORS! I am not exactly sure what my expectations were, but everyone who saw the production was totally blown away. I am beaming with pride I tell you! I jokingly mentioned that I needed her to autograph the program to have for when she is famous....lol!
For today's card, I played around with some stitches. This week I had to sew on Boyscout patches for my son. They need to be accurately placed and somewhat meticulously stitched. Say What? Oh, joy! I actually had fun with the haphazard contrast stitches on this card. Sort of created a fun stitched up babies blanket with four different patterns of Webster's Pages in my stash. I am using the sketch from Truly Scrumptious Challenge this week. I am using a Meljen's Digi Image. This little babe is too cute! Isn't he precious? I feel like I am becoming a digi pro! All the hearts, stars, swirls, and cloud lining are lined with a sakura clear sparkly gel pen. Just enough sparkle to create a dreamy slumber! I added some distressed crunched ribbon. I added a heart button an a red gem. I really wanted to have the red touches pop a bit. I have been cleaning up my craftroom. I HAVE way too much stuff that I sort of forgot about. If it is not out in the open it is sort of forgotten. I totally forgot about the baby bracelet beads in my stash. I chose not to even string these up, but to add them to the edge of the circle like a little sentiment plate. I really heart the placement and the finished look. I rarely do cute, but I think this is two Sunday's in a row that I have done CUTE! Well, be that alittle VINTAGE CUTE for this one!
