Baseball And Crafty Secrets Have Been Good to Me & You!
Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am in Sacramento California this week at the Thunder Valley Resort for work. While I am away, I wanted to show you a layout made with the new Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Patterns CD and the new Play Ball Stamps (SL 44).
This is my son playing for Mt. Tabor Little League 9-10 year old All Stars. They played with heart in the Clackamas tournament. Even though they were eliminated after two games they battled the whole way. I am one proud mom!
To make this layout, I first made the heart embellishment. I inked a chipboard heart with Versa Magic Aspen Mist Ink, which I let dry throughly. I stamped the heart with the baseball stamp inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger in Fired Brick. I stamped the All Star Base and the Mitt on White Card Stock with Color Box Royal Blue Ink and Fired Brick Ink, respectively which I embossed using clear embossing powder. I cut these out and layered on the heart and set aside.
One of the amazing advantages of the Creating with Vintage Patterns CD is you never run out of paper. I printed one of the papers in 8 x 8 on white card stock. I added the photo. Then I stamped the three stars from the Play Ball set with acrylic paint and Fired Brink ink over the acrylic paint when it was dried.
Finally I added the embellishment and the journaling spot, which was also inked with the Aspen Mist Color.
On Friday, I will announce the winners of both today's post and Monday's post. Today, I am giving you a chance to win the Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Patterns CD. What do you have to do to win????? Just leave your name and a comment about why you would love to win. I will randomly select the winner on Friday July 22nd, when I get back from my business trip! Good Luck!
