February House Of Cards...
Retro Rubber Challenge #80...

Hearts And Flowers For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It.  Fill in this blank:  My first stamp or craft tool was:  a crimper!  Or the brayer – I think I bought them at the same time.

It was fun to bust out my crimper tool.  I ran a couple of pieces of cardstock thru the crimper before adding to my card base.  Are you familiar with a crimper?  It’s a tool that corrugates paper.  It’s really a cool way to get some texture on your card so one would think I would use it more!

For my image, I stamped the lovely little bouquet and then colored with my chalks.  I added the sentiment and linen thread after I added a bit of blue chalk around the image.  It’s hard to see the blue but in real life it gives a nice antiquey feel to the card.

That's a really pretty card, Jane. Crimper, Brayer, Chalks... none of those things is in my craft room!


This is so pretty!! GREAT way to dig out tools that haven't seen the light in a while. Makes me want to get out my crimper!!! And the chalks? Beautiful!!!

Jane your card is sooo pretty! I have never owned a crimper, but always fancied one! I love the texture it adds to your background panels.
