Celebrating Hobbies Challenge

 Hello! I am excited to share a card that I made with Clear and Simple Stamp and it was selected to be in the iphone App feature. You can find it here along with some fabulous inspiration from this site. It is scheduled to be release today! 
 Since it is a card for a crafty friend, I thought it would be perfect for the Moxie Fab World's Celebrating Hobbies Challenge


Sorry that the image is removed for publication.




I love using the BACKING of the clear stamps to create the images in assorted colors. They are all stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. First I stamped the BACK of the images with colorful inks and then I stamped black dye ink over and that's it! {edited note:  Please see Lisa Spangler's video (from Hero Arts) for detailed instruction}. The fun part is adding the twines for the oval sentiment.

I think this card will make any craft-y girlfriend super happy. I will pick someone from this post to send this card to. Would you like to be my crafty girlfriend (that color my world)? Just leave me a comment in this post by Friday midnight Eastern Time and it's simple as that!

My next post is ALL about SRM Stickers and cards (what else?). All 12 of them!  Hope you've got time to check them out!
