Magnifying glass anyone?

I got some Justrite stamper stuff in the mail today. I got the wooden circle, a set of borders and centers, and the small letter set. Let me tell you, when they say small they mean teeny weeny small. It took me all of 30 seconds to lose one of the things and probably 30 minutes to find it. It was a miracle I found it at all. They are about 1mm x 2 mm (maybe a tiny bit bigger) and gray, so they blend nicely into any and all shadows. Plus I have this hi-low carpet in my scrap room and stuff really hides in that. So anyway by the time I found it I was completely out of the mood but I forged ahead. I made this simple card using a sketch from one of the Joy of Cardmaking magazines. After I had my patterned paper thing on the front all cut, torn and sewed, I noticed I had included the Stampin' Up logo on the corner. ARGH! So I got out my Close to Cocoa ink (which matches this paper) and my Tim Holtz foam inky thingy, and inked up the edges. I thought it covered it up rather nicely. The picture came out a little funky. My DSLR is acting up on me so I decided to try my old G2. Poor thing-it barely works anymore.

materials list:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Whisper White
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up Petal Patch Designer Series paper
Inks: Stampin' Up (Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery classic ink and Bashful Blue craft ink)
1-3/4" circle punch
1/4" circle punch
Nestabilities
Sewing machine
Tim Holtz foam ink spreader thing
Stampin' Dimensionals
Letter stamps: Justrite Stamps
flower stamp from the Stampin' Up Big Pieces set

edit-now that I look at it more closely, I think I put the S on upside down-on both places!

Well, it was worth the search! Awesome card!!!

What a great card! I've managed to drop one of those teensy letters myself. You'd think it would be easy to find on BLUE carpet... I was just thankful that my puppy wasn't in the room with me - because if HE found it, well... I'd be short a letter.

Beautiful card!

This is awasome, Love the torn paper...I'm sorry you were having such trouble but I glad you were able to recover your stuff and find it atlast. Most of the stuff I lose seems to always be right in front of me and it takes my daughter to uncover it for me...drives me nuts most days!!!!

Very pretty card! I like how you stitched the torn edge, it's the perfect touch there. Those tiny little things would drive me nuts:)

I didn't even notice the S until I read your edit comment. The card is great. I like how your tore the edge and the colors you used are great.

Wonderful card!! I love that patterned paper!!

Liz said...

Love the torn paper with the stitching and the Just Right accent piece looks great (I didn't notice the 's' either)!

CathyRose said...

The card turned out beautifully! I feel your pain about the logo. I didn't realize there was one until I made a card and saw it after I glued the paper on. Those are some tiny little alphas you got!

Louise, that's me!! said...

I love it, so cute and the upside down S just looks funky!

Louise, that's me!! said...

I just realised that FUNKY does not mean the same in the States as it does here... so it just looks COOL!

Tegan said...

Wonderful card!!

I just tried one of these Just Rite stamps at a friends house. She showed me the teeny tiny letters and I could barely see them! But I'm still intrigued by the idea of it so I may eventually end up getting one anyway. I know what you mean about the SU logo on the designer paper. More than once I have had that happen too.
