#TBT – Old Viewfinder Birthday Card

Offspring2 cleaned out a few drawers last weekend, and I got to sort through cards from the last 15 years. This viewfinder card was made in 2009.

Here are the other views:

Supplies (that I remember!!!): Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Inkadinkado, JustRite, Stampin’ Up!, The Cat’s Pajamas, paper – Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (textured), not sure about rust layer (too light for Really Rust, too dark for Pumpkin Pie!) or DSP, inks – Encore Gold, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Spellbinders, hole punch – Fiskars, metal hardware – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! clear.

Dotted Sunflower Birthday Card

 

My Mom’s birthday is coming up. I wanted to use a sunflower, but none of my larger sunflower stamps were what I was looking to use. So, I combined a smaller sunflower stamp with the die that fits one of my larger sunflower stamps (and, NO, I can never get the large stamp and die to match up – super frustrating!).

After I had my sunflower assembled, I started to look around for a background. This dotted A Muse paper must be 10 years old, but it is perfect here. (It came in a variety pack of colors – I have mostly just scraps left.)

In trimming the dotted paper, the scrap that was left was perfect for a note card.

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up!, paper – A Muse Kitchen, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Close to Cocoa (retired), Daffodil Delight, inks – Copic E11, E25, R02, R24, R29, YG03, Y18, VersaFine Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia, dies – My Favorite Things (sunflower), Spellbinders (circles), Taylored Expressions (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – Martha Stewart.
