One Little Word

I just discovered One Little Word (OLW)! Every other Wednesday they Word Up (post a new word to inspire you) and you have until the following Friday to link your work. So this is my first time being a wordster (playing along.) Word Up #14 - FULL. I kept trying to think of a different way to use the word full. Full of ......, kept coming to mind but I just wasn't loving it! Finally, I remembered my DH telling me that a full house in cards is 2 of a kind and 3 of a kind and here's what I ended up with.


I used regular playing cards to mat my photos. The background paper has an aged yellow color and I was worried that the white of the cards would be too bright and not look good so I took a dark yellow ink and inked the edges, then stamped them with a textured stamp to make them looked aged and crackled like the paper.

I used the same technique on the KI chipboard banner. The black foam letters are by The Paper Studios. I also used a huge bracer to trace and then cut out the red cardstock. I thought the shape of it would go well with the theme, very spade like.

Again I did the aging technique on the journaling circle.

It was so much fun to play along. I can't wait for the next word!

Thanks for taking a peek!
