I'm Late!

It's Wednesday which means that I'm a day late sharing a project created for Topflight Stamps. Last Friday, we had a torrential rain storm, courtesy of Tropical Storm Dora. First it started raining in the middle of the kitchen onto our kitchen table. Then we lost power for several hours. An hour after the power returned, the cable crapped out. Due to the pandemic, no one was available to come check out the situation until Tuesday, which meant that we were left without internet (except for our phones) and tv! Poor poor us. Such first world problems. 

Anyway, my talented pal and TFS teammate, Toni, switched days with me. Don'tchaknow that team work makes the dream work?

This week, I've created a slimline card that is appropriately titled "I'm Late!" using stamps from the Alice Collection, Set 2 by Random Artist 222 for That's Crafty. I also used That's Crafty's Discover Word Series Stencilthe Cogged Up Stencil by Andy Skinner for Creative Expression, and two colors of Prism Inks by Hunkydory Crafts.

Here it is.

  19. The two pieces were edged, layered, die-cut, then adhered to the slimline card.
  20. Lavender cardstock was die-cut with a speech bubble and the sentiment from the stamp set was stamped onto it with Arctic Mist Prism Ink, which was also used to edge the speech bubble.
