Monday's don't hold the same *ahhhh* as they do when school is in ... but today is going to be a great day nonetheless. Yes, the girls are home, but so is Craig ... and that means the girls are going over to Mom's for a *play date* while My Love takes me for lunch. Yay for me!
We had a lovely weekend. I'm starting to get the hang of relaxing ... at least a little bit! When Craig is home I'm off cooking duty so the days seem to be a lot longer and run a lot smoother. Planning dinner always takes a lot of time out of my day! Yesterday the girls and I went to "Pets in the Park" and wandered around Hawrelak Park. There were so many different dogs there ... and snakes, rabbits, cats and ferrets! It was fun! After a lovely BBQ dinner I headed down to the craft room to make this tutorial for you. So, without further adeau I give you my Painter's Tape Cards:
Here is my second card:
Now! For the tutorial on how to get the background. It's sooo easy! ... a little messy, but easy! ... and let's face it, the messier it is the more fun it is, right?
So! First off you need Painter's tape (because it is low tack ... is that how you spell tack? Or is it tac? Hmmm ... note to self to ask Dad how to spell tack ... or tac ... squirrel!). You can also use masking tape but I didn't have any around and this worked just fine! Tear off a little piece and press it into your ink pad:
Then do the same in your other colors with fresh strips of tape (I used a Sharpie to write the color on the strips of tape so I could re-use them ... the tape isn't cheap ... we need to recycle!):
Thanks for popping in! Until next time ... have a stampy day!
