Another Pinterest Card

Here's yet another of the cards I made inspired by Marta's Pinterest boards. I loved this kid's room, especially the colors, chairs, and carpet.


The striped table cloth was made with Papertrey's Faux Ribbon set, and the lamp is from Hero Arts. The sentiment comes from Papertrey's Paper Tray set. The colors are Memento inks.

And of course I blinged. Or blung. Did we decide which was correct? I'm all insecure since my matte/mat blunder.

Simplicity Tip: To align the lamps, which are wood-mounted rubber, I put a 6" quilt ruler across the top of the card and centered it so the number 3 was in the exact middle. Then I made a little mark where I wanted the central lamp base to go. Using a stamp postitioner, I stamped the central lamp. Then, it was easy enough to use the positioner to align the right and left lamps by eyeball. Of coures, I erased the pencil mark when I was done. Memento ink dries quickly...but don't rush the erasing. You'll get mad and say bad words when you ruin a finished card.

  10. Love your color selection and that row of stripes is perfect for grounding it...although I would just ixnay the rubber stamp and go all clear - too much madness for me with rulers and such! :)

  11. Oh, this is so bright, and cheery, and pretty! Your colors go so well together, I love the tablecloth, and the sentiment is perfect for any occasion. And I totally agree with using your stamp positioner. Nothing is more irritating that having made a beautiful card.....then finishing off with sentiment or stamp not perfectly placed; the mistake is all I see! Great card!

  15. I wish I owned some real lamps like those! The color on this is fabulous, Susan! I also love that kids room. I never would have thought of stringing banners across a bedroom room like they did. And the room reminded me of your cards, lots of white with just a pop of color :)

  19. Lovely card. I like blinged and blung. Both are deserving of new word-ness, so I propose the following. I blinged the card represents adding one bling item or area to a card, but when blinging more than once you use the plural of blinging, blung. Kinda like blinging too.....
