Welcome Blog Hoppers (and my normal blog visitors who may feel like they just clicked into the twilight zone!!) I hope most of you have made it over from Debby's Blog (I promise I tried to embed this like the others!) (http://www.masculineinspirationsinpapercrafts.blogspot.com/) to join me in the Club Scrap Cape Cod Blog Hop...(say that five times fast.)
I know my artistic talent is FAR surpassed by many of my fellow Hoppers and I guarantee you that they did not pick me to be last in the Hop because of my amazing creative ability or that they were saving the best for last.
I was just the last person to sign up. (Shrugs)
I just hope I can make up for my crafty shortcomings with my slick, witty humor.
Today's focus is on the fabulous and already hoarded Cape Cod kit. Now everyone raise their hands if they love the kit (right I see you all.) Now raise both hands if you are saying there is no way I can cut into my wonderful Cape Cod papers to make cards (I see you guys too.) So how about you pull out all those great Unmounted Stamps and make some cards with some Grab Bag papers. What? You don't have any Grab Bag papers? Well I'm glad you asked because you can get your very own here (12x12), here (8 1/2 x 11), and I also like these (8 1/2 x 11 seconds). When you amass a large collection of these papers you will end up with something like this...
Look at all that great card making potential! So here's what I did, I pulled out some papers (Games Navy, Workbench Red and a Culinary White print (backside) and my Cape Cods stamps and I whipped out this little beauty. The base card is just an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper cut in half and then scored in half again with mattes cut to fit. No special formula this time.
I was on a roll so I grabbed a couple more pieces from the box...
(Isn't it way better to have a cruddy picture with a cat in the way than a great blogworthy picture?) This is some Architecture Grey, Workbench Silver, Down to Earth Green and another piece of the Culinary White print (turned over)-and one of my cats-A.J. So I did the same thing with the papers (only the grey wasn't a full sheet so I ended up with this.)
A couple more stamps and I ended up with this...(I really need to use my real camera next time I do this instead of my iphone.)
Ok so I actually ended up with two cards like the one above and one card with the dark grey and silver but I hated the way I stamped on it and it's my blog so I decided not to post it! Ha! Finally I grabbed some Gratitude print, some Autumn Splendor light brown (and a Refresh text UM Stamp) and some more of the white and ended up with these...
So a whole bunch of cards with some fabulous stamps using some great papers that I got for a great deal-I've always been a bargain shopper! (Note that I have been buying grab bags for a long time so your papers will be from more recent kits and will vary.)
So I sure hope you enjoyed your Blog Hopping today. At any point you can go back to Club Scrap Creates to start the blog over or see a list of all of the Bloggers from today.
By the way-should Blogger be capitalized?
