Inkyfingers Papercrafting

A few weeks ago I got to go see several of my theatre friends perform in a psychological thriller of a play, “Murder in Green Meadows”. Being a theatre person is so fun and keeps me busy, because the more productions I participate in, the more friends I make, and then I just HAVE to go see them in all the productions they participate in! And naturally, I had to make my friends some cards to congratulate them on their success!

I used the Broadway Birthday stamp set and the Broadway Bound DSP to make these cute mini-cards. The photo below shows the fabulous foil sparkle visible on every piece of this amazing DSP!

I wanted to add some extra sparkle to my stamped image, so I decided to emboss the gold dots on the “Hooray” stamp. But the cardstock was so teeny, I would burn my fingers when I used the heat-embossing tool. Then I had a brainwave:

Bone folder + binder clip = no more burnt fingers!

The play was terrific, and the cards were well-received (as was the box of chocolates that accompanied them!).

Have you made any projects with the Broadway Bound paper? Share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!

I used the Take Your Pick tool to add the metallic pearls to my project. So much easier than using my hands!

Leave the other white rectangle blank for your card insert. Attach it to a Lovely Lipstick frame.

Assemble as shown (note that this smaller card opens the opposite way to most cards, i.e., opens on the left side).
