Get Well Soon

rosy 2

It’s Thursday so we are almost to Friday!  Whoopie!  We have company coming this long weekend so we are very excited but we NEED to get the house back in order.  The chaos is about sending me over the edge.  We should finish the floor today and get everything back in the living room and that leaves Friday to get the house clean and the grass mowed.

The card today comes from this sketch I found on Pinterest…

sketchI love sketches because they are such a great starting point.  I saw the three little flags and thought of our triple banner flag stamp.  I had a little trouble because the pink with red polka dots paper had trouble in the ScannCut.  Sometimes if the patterned paper is too patterned the scan doesn’t really know what to look for.  So I tricked it a little.  Here is what I did.

I stamped the F235 on Acetate with Staz-On ink.  I then scanned the acetate into the machine.

Next I stamped the F235 Triple Banner Stamp unto the patterned paper and slid it in under the acetate and matched the lines up.

I then made sure the paper was sticking and took the acetate off and cut the paper just like I wanted.  Where there’s a will there is a way!  Except for that felt I’ve been working on.  I was asked to see if the machine would cut felt and the box says that it does but I’ve been having trouble with it.  I will keep working on it!

so it cuts beautifully!  Have a great Thursday!
