It started innocently with a collection pack of papers from Basic Grey.  I loved the fall colors of the Pyrus paper collection and had ideas for certain sheets of papers.  I bought the paper pack with a coupon at the Paper Zone before they started to go out of business.  Another time I found the rub-ons on clearance… and then the coordination chip stickers.  I love this collection!

Well, I finally started to make a few cards with the papers, rub-ons and chipboard stickers from this Basic Grey Pyrus collection and here is one of them.

I used some cream-colored cardstock for the base, added a strip of burgundy to the bottom (I used a Fiskars edge punch to get the scallops) and a strip of the Pyrus paper.  I added a little bit of gross grain brown ribbon, a rub-on, a Stampin’ Up “Thank You” sentiment stamp and a background stamp that I repeated and then I smudged the edges with desert sand ink and a dauber.

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.
