Am I in the right place?

I bet after you see this card you will wonder if you are lost....

Yes you are here!  Soapbox Creations!  The mostly CAS blog.  What is this you ask?  I am sorta thinking some vintage fell on my craft table and this is what happened!  Along with lots of distressing!  I know, right?  I am shocked too!

I stamped PTI's Text Style in Jumbo Java Versamagic and then distressed like crazy with these bad boys...


(I hope it was ok to borrow Tim's picture! You can check these inks out HERE!  They are limited edition...and I think that is why Amy talked me into buying them!)  ;)

So obviously I didn't use the orange (yet) but the brown and violet color are FANTASTIC!!  I even made my own ribbon using the Seedless Preserves!  I added a little edger die and a little lace.  Then I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Signature Series: Dress Form, on a My Minds Eye card and attached it with some foam tape!  Then the bow, some rose buds and pearls to finish it off!  


I told a few of you today that I lost my mojo today!  Well, I must have found a little and was just so happy to actually complete ONE card today!  

I hope you all have had a very crafty World Card Making Day!  Gonna go blog surfing for a little while and then get some sleep!  Have a great Sunday!

  3. Yay, I'm so glad that you DID finish ONE card! This must have happened AFTER I talked to you! hehe This is a beauty Laurie. I love this side of your creativity.....but I like your CAS side too!! Now for these inks.....what do you think? I can not stop using these darn things! Glad we got to talk on WCMD even if we didn't get to stamp together! :)
