DAY EIGHT: This is the eighth day of blogging this month. I have so many cards I’ve made and never blogged about, so I’m hoping to make a dent in my collection of non-blogged cards by posting daily.

Today’s featured card is a birthday card I made for my friend Stacey last year. I used some pretty paper from Stampin’ Up! and inked the edges with a soft grey ink pad.Then, I stamped the “It’s your day” sentiment on some white cardstock, cut it down to size and inked the edges. I left space above the sentiment so I could attach some paper flowers, gems and a fancy Stampin’ Up! brad. Next, I mounted it onto some yellow-green cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper. Before attaching it to a blank, white card base, I wrapped some stretchy grey and white ribbon around the face of the card and tied a bow.

Here’s a semi close-up of the main feature of the card. For some reason, the lighting was awfully yellow.

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.
