This card represents Vermont to me.
I love Vermont though I don’t live there.
Can you see the reasons this card is a Vermont card?
Bernie Sanders?
Spring equals mud season?
Years ago hubby and I went to Vermont in the Spring, not knowing that they have a thing called “mud season” at that time.
We got caught in the mountains trying a new route to Burlington with Google maps.
We slid most of the way into Burlington after dark!!!
The card is white card stock that I taped the Tim Holtz woodgrain stencil and applied Distress Oxide gathered twigs and ground espresso inks...mud.
The sentiment is made of two Lawn Fawn sets “How You Bean?” and “Easter Party” using Memento tuxedo black ink.
On more white card stock I stamped the image Riley & Company “Bernie” using the same ink and coloring it with Copic marers.
After trimming it out I applied it to the mud side with foam tape.

AAA Cards Game #185...Inchie


I can hardly wait to see what wonderful creations you all have to show.
Will you choose just the inchie or be really challenged with the option of black & white?
I chose to go with both.
I punched out a 1” square from some card stock using my Stampin’ Up 1” square punch.
I traced inside the inch black with a pencil.
I used easy release tape to block off the bottom of the square.
Next I stamped the sentiment and image from one of our wonderful sponsors this year Uniko Ltd. “Happy Succulents” using Memento tuxedo black ink.
I removed the tape and drew the black lines and dots with American Crafts 03 precision pen.

Can’t wait to see what you all do!

This posting is a little different in many ways.
First off it is not about a challenge.
Secondly I didn’t use the companies supplies for the cards.
For this posting I decided to share the information about Altenew stamp Company’s Card Drive.
Just click on the link below my card to find out the details.
I decided, after reading their post this morning, to use what I had done already after playing with Unity Stamp Co. toner cards and Deco Foil’s foil that I ran trough my laminator.
Altenew was generous enough to not require using their supplies just to make cards.

I chose to make cards with the toner pieces then die cut the word “smile” using Impression Obsession’s DIEW378-E.
These I glued to more card stock and trimmed out with scissors.
Inside I have stamped “Happy Mother’s Day” (unknown company.

Won’t you join me is making someone’s day with a hand crafted card!
