Impress Rubber Stamps featured some fresh new stamps for Spring and I wanted to make a card with them, so my friend Joe and his family will be the recipients of this card.  They moved back home to WA after living in Nicaragua for nine months and whenever I see Joe, he’s getting this card – so don’t tell him about this blog post, please!  😉

I love to use the hand-crocheted embellishments my Grandma made.  This card features two of her flowers:

Here’s the card with the decorated envelope:

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
