I must admit, this here city slicker has a real fondness for this farm inspired set from Papertrey ink. It is so vintage with a quaint farm freshness to it that I find has such a far reaching appeal. I am also rather smitten with the chicken wire background stamp which is easy as pie to line up from Waltzingmouse Stamps. And if you're anything like me...easy to line up is a massive plus. The fun wood board/panel background stamp (also from Papertrey Ink) is a real rustic beauty. This strip stamp even comes complete with the little wooden nails to boot! Très cool! And what about that chook die cut? Love! Needless to say I found crafting this card a real hoot! Now all I need is someone to get a new roost for me to send it to. LOL
Thanks a big bunch for stopping by. I appreciate your visits so. x
I really do. Hence my heartfelt card made just for you, my cherished readers. You would be forgiven for thinking otherwise as AWOL as I have been lately. Apologies for that. A few months ago, I started a new business called Wynn's Over Lice™. It is a rather luxe head lice treatment of all things that is all natural and yet highly effective. And like all new businesses, when you are head cook and bottle washer, I have been pretty much head down, tail up trying to make a go of this labour of love. I have had my own businesses before, but not a product driven one like this. I am sure all of you other owner/operator business folks out there might say, what's the big deal? But for this little ducky...I had no idea, not a one. LOL
I have really been enjoying this new focus as much as this journey I am on of learning that there really is so much that I need to learn! But the most wonderful thing I have discovered is that it is imperative that I continue to craft. Seriously, I find that continuing to be creative in paper craft has had the awesome benefit of keeping my creative in business mind running too. Bonus!
So as for your card, I created this little number with a few Papertrey Ink dies, which include the fun circle Limitless Layers and the circular Cover Plate die/Impression Plate doohicky that's name escapes me. Sorry. The fun background typewriter stamp is a red rubber one from Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 line titled Art-Fully Said. It's a good'un if you haven't come across it already. The cutie-pie trike stamp is a precious one from Unity. I always revel in an opportunity to use it. It just makes me smile. The sentiment is a Papertrey Ink one from one of their thrifty $5 sets released last year. And of course you would have spotted the much adored PTI Polka Dot Basics strip stamp below. Love. Nothing like a bit of 1 inch grey satin ribbon from my stash and liberal staining with my much used, almost needs replacing, Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tea Dye to finish off the job. I am quite pleased with the outcome of my card to you. For without you all, I am not sure I would have had the inspiration to make any of the papercraft that I do adore so. Big hugs and thanks to YOU. x
