Today is.... Stamp-A-Faire 2016

Papertrey Ink Stamp-A-Faire 2016
This is what I am doing today!  One of my favorite stamp companies is having this free online event.  I am vowing to get at least one card on here and this is the color palette I am choosing.

Now to get busy!!

     It took me hours to complete this one card.  A mother-in-law with dementia is similar to having small children underfoot but you are older and find it hard to multi-task. *smile*  She is getting quite needy so I don't have a lot of time.  I LOVE this die from Papertrey Ink's July release.  I have the matching stamps but decided to use the inks from the color recipe, sponged them onto a piece of white card and then cut it out.  I backed it with white and after stamping an IO background, again using all of the inks from the recipe, I mounted the die cut.  Finished it up with some sequins. 

Here is a link to the challenge..


  1. Love the blending on the cut-out! Gorgeous!!

  2. Love the colors and how they blend into one another. I always wonder how people sponge die cut outs without accidently wrinkling up the paper. Well, I guess sponging FIRST and then die cutting would be the way they do it! Why that never entered my mind I'll never know.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. It means a lot to me. Mary GW
