Happy Labor Day!

Howdy folks! It’s labor day in the US and for many of us it means a day of from work and school. If you happen to had a day off today I hope you enjoy it! It is looking like we might get rain in Maine but we will enjoy the day never the less. Since this is the unofficial last day of summer here (the day all of the tourists go home 😦 ) I thought I would use a stamp set I bought at the stamp show I went to in June, it is by Just Rite Stamps and it really homey to me:

 

I did not have the dies that went with this stamp so I cut it by hand…I’m not jumping on the “buy the dies to match the stamp” bandwagon. With the amount of stamps I have it would be a slow road to insanity or bankrupcy LOL! And it did not take me long to cut it out either:)

 

I hope you like the background on this card. I am working on a background techniques video that I will share with you later this week. I got a chance to play in my studio yesterday and make a bunch of card backgrounds, it was fun and productive! Also I wanted to share me “free” embellishments! I used sea glass picked up from the beach on this card!

 

The sand dollar embellishment was made from ecru polymer clay, I used a rubber stamp of a sand dollar to press in flattened balls of clay, baked it then dry brushed white acrylic paint over it when it was done. I made a ton of these a few years ago and lucky for me I knew right were they were when I made this card!

 

That’s all for today! Enjoy the day off (if you have it off) and til next time happy crafting!
