Missing You

 My sister and her family visited over the holidays.  After they left we found one lone sock under the bed.  It belongs to my youngest niece, who is away in college.  I've held on to it, until I found the time to make an appropriate card for it.
I think she will love this!

The Male Room - Use Embossing - I embossed all the images, before coloring.  This card could be for male or female.

Lawn Fawn - Bring it Back - The stamp set is from Lawn Fawn.
I used a stencil for the background, with a blue ink.  Then . . . .  wait for it . . . I stenciled over that with Stickles!  I have so many stickles and other glitter glues - just drying up on the shelf.  And I've been noticing that there are now so many products now like these to use over stencils.  LIGHT BULB.  Use my old stickles for this!!
I also added mini buttons as accents on the card. I had to dust off the container they were in.

Inspire. Create. Challenges:  I'm not sure this card qualifies -- I wanted to show movement of the washer.  So the stencil I selected (in my mind) gives a spinning feel.  Which I then tried to emphasize by angling the washing machine.  
Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes With Dies - There are coordinating dies
with this stamp set.  

Here is a peak at the inside:
I hope this brings a smile to your face -- I know it did for my hubby!  I can't wait to send it (along with sock).  
Enjoy your day. 


  1. OH! This is is just FABULOUS, what a great idea and the "spinning" stencil is Super with the machine stamp. I know your niece will LOVE it. Great idea to use Stickles over the embossing too. Thank you so much for joining us in our Use Embossing challenge at The Male Room this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
