About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

This card will be entered into the Outlawz Creative Freebie Challenge.
Papers: DCWV, Recollections, and scrap
Sentiment: Stampin Up (from a used set that I bought in a garage sale. I have not idea what the name of it is.)
Coloring: Mix of sharpie markers and Stampin Up markers.
Ribbon: Bias Tape
This picture is to show the layers of the focal point. The bottom layer is a scalloped oval, then a rectangle, then a funky slanted rectangle, then a ring, and finally another rectangle.
The sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp that has been stamped in black ink from studio G. Lily swag is a digital image from Sandi Huggett and is colored with a combination of sharpie markers and Stampin' Up markers.
The Lilies are hand made. The stamen are colored Q-tips. You can find the tutorial here.
The stems of the lilies are the stick of the Q-tips colored with Certainly Celery Stampin Up Marker. The Bow is bias tape that has been died to match So Saffron from Stampin' Up. There is an awesome bow tying tutorial here.

I am very proud of this card. I have been on a CAS kick lately and this has helped me out of that kick.
