Kay’s Blog Takeover 2012 Day 2

Hello! Today is the second post from my 17-year-old-step-daugther, Kay. (You can find out more about this HERE.) Enjoy…

Hi again, my pretties! It’s Day 2 of Kay’s Blog Week and I’m back with another round of fabulousness.

Today’s card was inspired by a beautiful Paper Smooches stamp set that I found depicting domestic cleaning supplies in a quirky, cute way to say “I love you.” Luckily, this is pretty much the cutest stamp set ever and I am more than proud to explain to you guys how I made my adorably cheesy card. 🙂

First, I stamped the washing machine, detergent, spray bottle, iron, vacuum, and broom (whew!) onto white cardstock with Black Memento Ink. I then colored them all in with Copic Markers. Next, I applied Glossy Accents to create texture on many parts of the images. Stickles also made a great add-on texture to the spray bottle and vacuum – nice for a change in pace. I added gemstones to the washing machine to create a more three dimensional look and define the colors on the knobs. I stamped “I Was Swept Off My Feet” onto white cardstock with black ink and punched it out with the word bubble punch. (Bummer – it is discontinued.) Finally, I added it all to the card with adhesive.

And voila, I have a cute, quirky card to send to someone I love! And, you can claim to others that you spent the day with a vacuum, iron and washing machine. Bonus!

Oh, and THIS is that cute stamp set I used…

I hope that you liked this card from today and I will be back soon for Day 3 of Kay’s Fabulous Blog Week!

Until then – don’t be afraid to get lost in thought… it is unfamiliar territory to most of us. 🙂
