Today I am enjoying the fun things to see at BlogHer but while I am away, I waned you to enjoy this fun little card I created :)


I love this scissors stamp!!! It's by Hero Arts and fast becoming one of my faves :)


Here is how I made the card, using only paper scraps from my stash and a few stamps:

  1. Cut a card base to 5.5″ x 8.5″ and fold in half.
  2. Cut a piece of Grey Dot Patterned Paper to 4″ x 5.25″ and adhere to the card front. 
  3. Run the edges of the card,including the folded edge, through the Zutter Disztrezz-it-All. Ink the edges with ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink in Charcoal.
  4. Apply a 1″ x 4″ strip of Patterned Paper to the lower right side of the card. Add two strips of washi tape over the paper.
  5. Stamp a sentiment onto a 1.75″ circle punched from scrap paper. Mount to card using 3D Foam Tabs.
  6. Randomly stamps the background of the card with the scissors stamp using ColorBox Archival Dye In in Wicked Black.
  7. Punch one 1″ circle and two 3/4″ circles and mount to card with 3D Foam Dots.
