Hero Arts Punch Ink that is.......... I got this awhile back but only just used it to ink up some stamps. I have been watching with interest to Tina and Martha who are challenging each other to use various stamps/techniques. For their third challenge they CASE'd a card of Tina's. Their cards inspired me to make this card
I don't have the Sunburst stamp they used, but have a lovely doily stamp from Tea with Eloise by Kaisercraft. I started by stamping it with the Punch ink directly onto the corner of my card. Next I stamped Layered Flower by Hero Arts onto some scrap white card and cut it out. I left it white only adding a red heart gem. I added some ribbon and then popped the flower over the top. I added the sentiment from Hero Arts in the top corner. I masked off the word "made" At this point, I stopped and looked at the card... I want to enter it into CAS-ual Friday's Flower challenge so had to be CAS ~ but it looked unfinished. So a row of little red gems and I feel like it's now finished and still CAS enough!
Lily Pad Cards and it fits the criteria for Paperplay Challenge ~ monochrome with ribbon. Plus I'll throw it into the mix at Simon Says Stamp Challenge ~ anything goes
I've just got some Banana Nut Bread in the oven. It's a recipe I haven't tried before, so hope it turns out okay. If I make Banana Cake, it seems to not get eaten with just the two of us home these days, but I think the loaf/bread will. I might even freeze some of it.
Hope you all have a great weekend. The weather forecast is for overcast showery weather... perfect for inside stamping!
