Bob to the Top

This is Pam from Sassy's Design Team. Thank you Sheila for having me as your designer today.
If you dropped in last week to my blogs (Papillon Digital Designs & The Bug Bytes ) you would know I was organizing all my stamps and cleaning up my scraproom - lol in fact my whole house needed cleaning. I found some things like corks and a packaging spongy like paper thingy which came with close to my heart stamps etc and  decided to recycle/use them in a project.

I have fallen in love with kraft paper  - Recollections. The other paper is from K & Company - I think the designer pad. Some chalk inks, staz on - black ink, stamps - yep after all the organizing gotta use them don't I ? and nestabilities - scallop and of course some tinkering with AI to create my own text (don't know what I was thinking when I typed that in but lol that's what came to my mind when I saw the cork :) ) I was set to make my card. The font is Bauhese free font and the flowers from some other font. You can click on the image and print it out if you like it.

Oh and some Ribbons. Yes the big wide costco ribbon and another smaller one from HL which so looks like the costco one.

I just traced a walmart cup rim onto the cork and cut it with scissors. It is about 3.5 inches. Then I stamped a doily shape onto the white spongy thingy with staz on ink and cut that out too. You can't see the print too clearly here but you can when you see it in person. A MS flower punch on a scrap piece. Then the wired costco ribbon comes in so handy as it retains the fold shape easily. So fold the ribbon in a rosette shape and glue it on. Some bling and some sharpie on the cork and the rosette is ready. The kraft paper I cut it 12" x 6" and the k & company paper to 5" x 11.5".

The inside of the card

This is for Dayna and Carole and Jeannie- my design team members. I used layers and pop dart. I do layer but left to myself I would have just stacked - 1 white scallop (label) on the brown. But nope these ladies especially the first two made me do it- well not made me but encouraged me, egged me on to do this - stack like this.

I have told them I will do this on solid cardstock or printed out things but nope not on my lovely stack of patterned papers. As it is each time I use these stacks - it's like pulling out my teeth :).
So that's my card. Recycle some of your things - make a project and show us what you have done and post in the linky below
And Be sure to drop in tomorrow at the TheBugBytes . I have a surprise.
