Movies at the Office, Day #3

Today's feature presentation at the office was Sling Blade. Like yesterday, I was in the middle of a conference call so I had to pass on the movie. I found it ironic that even though I was the one that organized the movie marathon this year, we didn't watch any of the movies that I brought in. But that's okay. As they are MY movies, I can watch them whenever I want. :)

I didn't find a new origami model to fold, but I did find a video tutorial on how to make fabric Kanzashi flowers by folding fabric and sewing the petals together. Fortunately, Mom had some leftover fall-y fabric, so I used it as a test until I can get to the fabric store and get fabric of my own. I have to get me a hot glue gun so that I can attach buttons and embellishments to the center of the flowers without worrying that they'd fall off. This regular glue is not going to work for fabric projects. I guess we all gotta start somewhere. On another note, I found it funny that the name of the person that made the video tutorial is Tina, too.

Here was this week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge (#34): Make a one-layer card using only one image stamp and no more than two ink colors. You may also use a sentiment stamp. Hmmm, this is kinda limiting, right? I guess that's why they call it a challenge. Duh. Here's what I came up with. I went with a mini card (2.5 inch square) because the regular A2 size was kinda big and intimidating to me for this challenge. Besides, I don't do mini cards very frequently so it was nice to step outside my comfort zone. I wanted to use my new Dear Lizzy stamps somehow, so I chose a bee and a sentiment stamp from a set that Meg gave me for my birthday last year.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Charcoal, Yellow Cadmium
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Stamp: American Crafts- Dear Lizzy- Warbler (bee), I can't find the brand of the stamps that the sentiment comes from.
