Hey Motherway!

LSC190Hey Motherway_SaK

My friend Cindy Motherway AKA Mothermark on Splitcoast is celebrating a birthday on Sunday. 

Her favorite color is blue, so I chose to combine her card w/ the Limited Supply Challenge on

Splitcoast today.  What a challenge this was for me!  We could only use one kind of ribbon and

eyelets.  On top of that, only 1 pattern of Designer Paper.  YIKES as Cindy would say!  This is for

you my friend.  Boxer DP by Basic Grey cuz I know you love it, blue was another requirement for

our challenge today.  The stamps I chose are all available from Innovative Stamp Creations  The

ornate stamping on the background,magnifying glass, key, take time sentiment

(take time to reflect on the wonders of life) and the key hole are all from a brand new sheet called

Photo Negative.   Cool stamps, HUH?  The sentimentis from the Estamp-ina sheet. 

I think I actually did the challenge without screwing up the requirements

this week.  I really wanted to add more than 1 kind of ribbon or fibers, acetate to my magnifying glass,

embossing powder, die cuts.....  Well, I managed with the limitations.  Have a fabulous day Cindy!

CS: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Brushed Silver

DP: Basic Grey Boxer

Ink: Distress Faded Jeans, Broken China & Black Soot

Accessories:  Black Eyelets, Narrow Organdy, Foam Dimensional Tape

(eyelets were set with my Raspberry Wizard and the eyelet setting plate?

  4. Very cool, and interesting. I just got my raspberry wizard today. It had been on back order . . . now to see what the deal is on this eyelet setting plate. Hmm, I will have to look that one up.
