Hello Stampy Friends!!
Phew!! What a crazy week I’ve had so far, and it’s only going to get busier!! Graduations, publication calls, graduation parties, and my grandsons all combine to take up a whole lotta my time!! LOL
But let’s get right down to business, shall we? This week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is: Create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project and incorporate vellum or clear acrylic cardstock in your design. I know you can do this!!
It just so happens that this challenge is near and dear to my heart. Why, you ask? Well, I’m sponsoring this week’s challenge. You may or may not know that I designed six stamp sets for my amazingly adorable friend, Kim Hughes, the owner and brilliant mind behind Paper Smooches Stamps. My stamp designs were debuted at the January 2012 CHA, and to say that I’ve been grinning from ear to ear ever since is an understatement. This week’s TGIF Winner will win one of each of the six stamp sets that I designed for Paper Smooches. Fun, right?!
I love using vellum in my card designs, so I was pretty excited about this challenge. Of course, I HAD to use some of my own stamps, didn’t I?!! I mean, DUH!! So, I grabbed Geo-Graphic and stamped the hexagon border onto some vellum. I know it’s a literal interpretation, but I just can’t help it – when I see hexagons, I always think of honey and bees. One of these days I’ll get a more creative mind, I promise! LOL
