You're a Classic

I have a friend who LOVES video games and he was in need of a card because he helped me get to the magic number of “likes” on my Cards By Stephanie Facebook page which allowed me to get a custom URL.  When I say he loves digital video games, I don’t think I can accurately describe the intensity of his passion for that kind of interactive entertainment.  Take whatever you’re thinking and multiply it by a thousand and you still won’t be close.  😉

So, I looked through my stash of stickers, rub-ons and embellishments and found a fun retro Atari joystick rub-on and used it as the inspiration to build his card.  I used paper from Cosmo Cricket’s “The Boyfriend” paper pack and used coordinating ribbon from the same set as a way to accent the card.

I used a brown Zig marker to draw stitching on the card and added a fun designer eyelet from Stampin’ Up! – it’s from a set I snagged on clearance called Soho Designer Hardware.

Thanks for reading my blog!  🙂

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.
