About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

The Smurf Turf!

Smurf Turf handmade birthday card - Stampin' Up! - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye

I made this card for one of my daughter’s little friends. He’s a huge Boise State Broncos fan (we are, too!), so I wanted to make a Smurf Turf card. I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine to make the yard lines. Since he was turning three, I put “03” at all the yard lines instead of the yard line numbers.

This card is not even close to perfect. As you can see, I smudged the ink in places, and the numbers and letters are spaced poorly and misaligned even though I was using photopolymer stamps and could see exactly where I was stamping. Oy. I made this card in a rush with a sick, screaming baby in the other room (being held by the hubs but still unhappy).

But hey. It’s the Smurf Turf, so I don’t think anyone cared that it wasn’t perfect. At least no one in Boise! ;-)

Paper: Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White cardstock
Ink: Pacific Point, Whisper White Craft
Stamps: You’re Amazing, Designer Typeset photopolymer
