LSC205 Limited Supplies

Sorry about two posts in one day, but I am trying to get caught up on the challenges - which won't ever happen but I guess I have extra time today.

See, this is what happens when you don't shower or do your housework. Important things (like stamping) get DONE!!

The Limited Supply challenge is to make a quick clean card. I really didn't realize there was such a thing. My cards are never quick and depending on the ink I am using - not clean either! lol!

Thank goodness for Scrapblocks! This card came together rather quickly.

1. Lay Scrapblock stamp on your desktop

2. Ink up the rubber with your chosen ink.

3. Leaving the Scrapblock on the table, inky side up, lay your cardstock on top of inked image and press down and around and all over to get even coverage. I sometimes place a scrap piece of paper on top of that and run my hands over it. The scrap piece of paper prevents your hands from getting inky - I know - what fun is THAT!?.

2. Remove inked cardstock and cut it to the desired size.

3. Mount it on more cardstock.

4. Cut out a complimentary coloured tag and stamp a sentiment on it in complimentary coloured ink.

5. Adhered the sentiment to the card with a bow and a couple of embellishments.

Hey, maybe I CAN do a quick and clean card!

I really need my Jake and new grandbaby Robin fix, so I am heading out the door after I shower, make the beds, do some dishes, clean.............
