Wishing You a Fabulous Birthday

For the past few years I have set some personal crafting goals. This year was no exception. If you're interested in seeing all of those plans you can see them in the page at the top of this blog titled My Blog in 2020

One of the goals is a monthly series I've called 

Could Ya?
Should Ya? 
Would Ya?

In this monthly series, I plan to try something out of the norm... i.e. a size of card I rarely use, a technique I've wanted to try (or try again), an unusual fold, a card for a bizarre holiday, etc. I also plan to try a new recipe on these days - not a card recipe, a kitchen recipe.

In January I made a card for a little known holiday. This month I decided to try a technique that I wouldn't normally use. Just so you know, this is Plan B. I first attempted to do the Baby Wipe Technique that I found in the tutorial section on SCS but I failed miserably at that so I tossed those attempts and decided to do a Rubberband Stamping Technique instead.

After masking off the section I wanted to stamp using Post It Notes, I wrapped some rubberbands (varying widths) around an acrylic block. I then stamped it into SU Wild Wasabi Ink and randomly stamped over the desired area. 

After that dried, I used my Big Beautiful Blending Brush to blend SU Daffodil Delight Ink all over that same masked area. 

After that it was just a matter of stamping the sentiment and arrow strip onto the piece and then putting the card together.

I didn't want any embellishments to detract from the Rubberband Stamping Technique so I kept them at a minimum - three tiny enamel dots from Eyelet Outlet.

And don't forget... there's the added feature of this series - try a new recipe. What's for supper? I found a recipe for Sheet Pan Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes on Pinterest. We're going to give it a try.

You might remember that last month I was making Cheesy Baked Chicken Breasts with Mushrooms. I liked it, but neither one of my guys did. Oh well, you win some; you lose some.

Wish me luck tonight.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Jeanette, this came out super cute - I'm channeling my inner Indy500 and Nascar with this cute card! I've done this technique and it's wildly fun and creative - great job!

Wonderful result from your rubber band technique Jeanette - love that you masked off the area and then brushed the colour over the stamping
