Super Card for a Guy

Super Hero Card

Cas-ual Fridays is hosting a really fun challenge this week called Love Letters. The challenge is to create a clean and simple project that feature your letters in a creative way.

I paired up two different stamp sets to create my card. First, I used my Recollections, Comic Talk stamp set for the Super sentiment. And then I used my  Simon Says Stamp, Shoot for the Stars set for the smaller sentiment is from  The star punch is a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch. And finally I scored my card with 3 vertical lines on the left side to create a balance point to the big, bold Super word bubble.

Clean and Simple cards are sometimes a challenge for me. I always seem to add too much to them or not enough but, I think this time I got it right. This card would be fun to send to one of the guys on my list of birthdays for friends and family.

I am also entering my card into the A Blog Named Hero Challenge Snip and Stick. The challenge asks that you use paper piecing on your card. Although the paper piecing technique I used was very simple, I thought I would enter my card in all the same.

Happy Stamping,


Going Hog Wild Over a New Craft I’m Learning!

image A few weeks ago I found these great videos by Crochet Geek on YouTube. I knew how to make simple single crochet stitches before I started watching the videos but I was not what you would call a crocheter. First I made a Amigurumi ball while working along with a video. Then I crocheted  along with a video that detailed how to make an adorable pig.  If you look closely at this picture you can see it was taken at work. There are perks to be married to the boss!

   I spent about 6 hours over several days to complete my pig. It took the woman who made the video about an hour! Surely I will get faster over time. (Either that or I will pay for the cute Amigurumi I see on ETSY!)

  As you can see my stitches weren’t very exact because I kept losing count. But heck, I don’t think having giant balls for legs is such a bad thing for the first one I have made. I’ll just give it someone who really loves me and will feel bad about pointing out my mistakes!
