My Hearts Pleasure


We’re Back

Good morning! What an amazing thing to experience yesterday with the Eclipse. I hope you were able to see it. In Virginia we had it at 82% but I also watched the total eclipses on tv and was just amazed. 

Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a Back To School theme 

Here is the card I created 

Awhile back I seen a pencil shaped card on Pinterest so I thought what a perfect card for our theme this week. I started with a kraft card base in the measurements of 3 x 5 1/2.  To create the point of the pencil I marked the center point on the left side and 2 inches down on the top and bottom then trimmed off the pieces to create the point. To create the pencil lead I punched a circle in black cardstock and glued it to the end of the point and then trimmed off the over hanging pieces. To create the eraser I took a piece of white cardstock and sponged with Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick. For the pencil barrel I used a piece of Summer Sun cardstock.  For the metal rim I used a piece of foil cardstock. Next I took a black chalk tag by American Crafts and heat embossed the sentiment and image using the Unity set We’re Back in white.  I adhered the tag using dimensionals. This was a super quick fun card to make. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time 

Happy Crafting 🙂
