Back, Yes I'm Back


It seems like "forever" since I've posted. A lot is going on in my life right now, including a trip to Europe that starts this Thursday night.

You've heard me talk about my membership in the RubberMoon Mail Club. This is a swap that I received earlier this year from the owner of RubberMoon Stamps, Kristen Powers, aka Kae Pea. It's on Stampboard and I love it!

I've just about finished my extra card for the MoonMail swap; it will go to the same person I sent the postcard to. I've had fun making this. I just have a few little sequins to place and it's in the mail! I used the pre-cut and pre-scored box card card stock from The Paper Cut. It comes in white, so I inked it with Memento Bahama Breeze on both sides. For the inside slot panels (also included), I used a Copic marker pen. Both the Memento and the Copic marker were 'dryer' than other inks. The card stock is not very thick and absorbs a lot of moisture. I had to dry it overnight because it just wouldn't dry. To make absolutely sure the moisture content was gone, I went over both sides with my heat gun as well before adding stamped images to the various panels. I cut the "cast of characters" out with 80# Neenah Classic Crest card stock in Solar White so it would be a little more heavy duty because each character would be cut out and placed upright. All stamps are from RubberMoon. The die-cut letters are from a Memory Box die set used on copper mirricard card stock.

Now we have a new Stamp of the Month to make something with; I'll have to be quick so it's ready to go before I leave on Thursday night! Can I tell you how much fun I'm going to have with this one?

Here's a card designed with one of the new holiday dies from Memory Box by Sherry Hester. This appears to be one of those card designs that you could make several of without too much added difficulty.

Time to call it a day and prepare for another "to-do" list day. Thanks for stopping in. Hope to see you again before I leave Thursday night!
