Good Times-Cardz TV Stamps Blog Hop


Welcome to our Cardz TV Stamps Design Team Good Times Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Dana's place than you are in the right spot. Didn't you just love her card?!! Awesomeness for sure!!
Our blog hop is showcasing Mary's new stamp set-'Good Times'. Such a wonderful set. But then, I think all of Mary's stamp sets are wonderful. You can buy your very own right here. Go ahead, hop over and take a look, I'll wait on ya. Told 'cha they are wonderful, didn't I?!
For my card today, I pulled my inspiration from one of the stamps and went from there. I cut this great ruler from the Locker Talk cartridge. It can be found on page 41. I cut it at 1.50. I did use my Gypsy Girl and hid all of the tick marks, except for the lines for the measurements. I then went over them with a black pen and wrote in the numbers. I added some faux stitching at the bottom of the ruler. The measuring tape ribbon is from The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby. The bg patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye-lime twist 6x6 paper pad. The buttons are from my stash. I stamped the sentiments and trimmed around them to the size I wanted. I then brushed a little bit of Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink around them and popped them up on one thickness of foam tape. These sentiments and the one on the inside are all on the 'Good Times' stamp set. I bet by now you know which of the stamps I pulled my inspiration from!! :)
 Mary will be giving away two sets of her most awesome stamps. Now I just have to give some blog candy myself. All I ask is that your have a U.S. or Canadian address, due to the cost of postage. Sorry about that. Also, please leave me a way to reach you. A blog or email addy will do. I will draw on Sunday evening and post on Monday who the winner is. Bet ya wanna know what I'm giving, don't cha? How about 3 sets of We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape? Sound good to ya? Good luck to all!!! (See picture below)
It is now time to head on over to visit Pinklady Crafter. You are going to just love her card!! Because I know it is awesomeness for sure!!!
If you get lost somewhere along the way, you can come back here and check below and find your way.
Below the list is the picture of my blog candy.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

One of these days I hope to be able to get my pictures to turn out right. Sorry for the poor quality!!


Here's a photo of the "Good Times" stamp set for you to add to your post.
