The Only Reason….

…I do housework is to have more stamping supplies.  Here's what I mean.

I do laundry so I have used dryer sheets to stamp on.  (Not really – but it is a perk!)

This is so fun.  When you first stamp on the dryer sheet, it looks a little sad, but when you're finished, it really is pretty.

Here's what I used and how I did it.

Stamp sets:  Dreams du Jour, Upsy Daisy
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun Classic
    Stampin' Pads; Stampin Write Markers –
    Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Summer Sun
Paper:  Frosty Day DSP, Confetti Cream,
    Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun card stock
Accessories:  1/16" circle punch, Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Stampin' Dimensonals, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Sponge Dauber, Blender Pen, Desinger Label punch.

I inked the daisy stamp in Summer Sun, then added some Tangerine Tango to the edges of the flowers.  Then I stamped on a used dryer sheet.
You can use a Xyron machine to make a "sticker" out of the dryer sheet, but this was too big for mine, so I used Crystal Effects.  I just spread some CE on Confetti Cream card stock, then laid the dryer sheet on it.  The hardest part is to flatten the dryer sheet out without getting your hands all sticky.
Before it dried, I sprinkled on a little Dazzling Diamonds.

Several days later…. (Ok – it doesn't take this long to dry, but I was working on other things) – mitre the edges of the dryer sheet (not all the way to the corner), then glue under card stock.  I layered it to Tangerine Tango, then to Summer Sun.  There are tiny little butterflies at the top of the Tangerine Tango card, and I added two little pieces of Frosty Day DSP to the edges of the Summer Sun layer.  I figured since you wouldn't see most of it, why waste a whole strip of designer paper? 
The tag is a "Dreams du Jour" stamp.  I colored it with markers, stamped, blended the color with a blender pen, then punched with the Designer Label punch.  I added it to the card with the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware and layered the whole thing to the Tangerine card with dimensionals.

So that's it for this weekend.  Unless something miraculous happens (like God stopping time again and giving us an extra 3-5 hours), I won't get to post again until Monday.   Have a happy weekend!
