Mind your business!!!

Yes...business sized cards!!! I love these because you can make them long OR tall!!! I hadn't made one in a while until now that I signed up for a business sized swap on SCS. Do you see a pattern here how I'm LOVIN' swapping on SCS??? I'm hooked! I get some great cards back in return and couldn't be any happier!!! LOL! Of course I can't do with too many cards to keep for my own...so most of the cards I donate to Vista Adult Day Care Center in Maywood, CA where my parents attend. Anywho...I had so much fun making these long/tall cards!

This one features Tool Time Hanna with Mikey! YAY...women can do just about everything a man can!!! I stamped my images onto 140 cold press watercolor paper to try the "No copics, No problem" techie I picked up on YouTube from ReneeJul1. Check it out HERE! Of course this was my "trial try" so it didn't come out too "copicy" looking...but hey...I tried...LOL! I even raided my hubby's tool box for those metal thingies...lol. Ok...you got me! I can use tools better than my hubby...but sometimes I just DON'T know the names...LMBO!

Now here is the long version card I made. This one was done with Zindorf as inspiration yet again. Plus I need more brayer practice! LOL! The grey sky is brayered onto SU's WWhite and the sun was masked on BEFORE I brayered the sky. I just used the negative to brayer the sun then I used the circle punch out to cover it up to do the sky.

I've been having so much fun perusing your blog the last couple of days (since signing up for your drink card swap) - you are a very talented stamper! Your cards are awesome!!

And it's called a washer. LOL

Marilyn said...

I love these business sized cards too!! It is fun to deviate from the normal routine we get ourselves into - and I think your brayering technique is awesome - mine has been neglected way too long too!!
