I hope yours was a glorious day, mine certainly was.  It was just a day that everything clicked – I got so much done around the house.  Today I got around to pulling out a new stamp set that hasn’t laid around for years and years – so I’m assuming it’s pretty current.  The stamp set I chose was a Wordsworth acrylic set – and since I’m trying to change things up a bit and work outside of my comfort zone – I picked something that definitely was not my normal style.  There was a larger sentiment in the set that I was drawn to – but for this card, I pulled together other smaller stamps from the set. I love the flower in this set…it has the outline and the solid inner shape.  Even though I seasoned the stamp, I found it didn’t take the ink as well as I wanted, so through the miracle of acrylic I was able to line it up and add a second coat of ink.  

I had fits getting a true representation of the colors on the photo above, the bottom picture is a truer reflection of the colors – an apricot design paper accented by a moss or sage green. 

 

Supplies:
Stamps:  Wordsworth Stamps – Friends Collection
Inks:  SU Mellow Moss, SU Elegant Eggplant, SU Lavender Lace
Paper:  Bazzill; Marcella Kay – Bungalow
Accessories:  Nestabilities, Brads, ribbon, ornare template, Martha Stewart Scallop Border Punch

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I’m so tickled to get to know some of you through your comments. Have a blessed day!

    I love this card. I want to be like Becca when I grow up.ReplyCancel

    Ooh, love those colors, and you really have a way with embellishments (that’s an area I definitely struggle with, so I’m always drawn to cards that have those little extra “pops” without being obnoxious!)

    I never seem to be able to get good coverage with dye inks on my acrylics, either, so generally turn to chalk or hybrid inks. Double stamping is a great solution, though – may have to give that a try next time I’m looking for just the right color in my pile o’ inks :)ReplyCancel

    Very sweet card! I have had some trouble with some acrylic stamps like that, but not for a while. I am surprised too that you would have difficulty with a wordsworth set — I seem to have more trouble with less expensive ones. Anyway your card turned out fabulous.ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful card! And Debra, you ARE like Becca! I love your cards as well.ReplyCancel

    Very, very nice card! I have always love Wordworth stamps but don’t see them as much any more. This is just my second day and I have a few more on the feed to look at, this is so wonderful. Thank you, Lord for leading me here.ReplyCancel

 

Sorry to be so brief…I only had a short time to stamp, so I pulled this together quickly.  This card is 8½ x 4 and will fit into a business sized envelope.  The top of the card was rounded with the Curvy Cutter Circle Cutting tool and was colored with Copics.

Supplies:
Stamps:  Angel – Stamp City USA; Sentiment – My Sentiments Exactly
Ink:  Black Brilliance
Paper:  Paperspectives; Bazzill
Accessories: Nestabilities; Copics; PTI Ribbon

I’m hoping for a productive week and to you, happy stamping.

    I LOVE the stamp! Where did you get it???ReplyCancel

As many of you know, I have a few stamps…my motto is, you can never have enough.  I buy all kinds of stamps and am a regular with Stampin Up, Close to My Heart, Papertrey and a host of others.  Well, I belong to a hostess club for Close To My Heart and this month is my month to hostess!! 

One of my best friends, Nancy, is a Close To My Heart consultant.  She is an everyday commenter on my blog (yes, she even has something nice to say about my dud cards) and if I bought stamps from her every day, I could not repay her for sticking with me and keeping my spirits soaring.   Nancy, thank you for a wonderful 8 years as one of your Rubber Ladies.

For those of you who are not familiar with Close to my Heart, their ordering system will now allow you to participate in parties online.  You can see an online catalog that you can turn page by page just like the real one HERE.   If you would like to try the CTMH products and would like to participate in my party, please leave me a comment and I’ll shoot you an email invite.  The cool thing is, that with online orders, the order will ship directly to you!!  The best thing is, this month is Stampaganza – please see the website for deets, but basically you can by two acrylic stamp set and you’ll get the third of your choice free.  Please don’t feel obligated, but if you do, Nancy will appreciate the business and I would love the credit for my party. 

Okay, this enabling message is over!!  :119 :100

I will be back with a card soon, after a little bit more of cleaning and organizing!!  :137
