All dressed up and nowhere to go!   That was me last night….I had a card ready, a card that I actually liked and no way to get it posted.  We had severe thunderstorms so my internet was out.  Not only that, my cable TV was out too.  So much for a back up plan, hunh!?!   If I can’t get on the internet, then that’s my invitation to stretch out on the sofa and catch up on all the shows I’ve Tivo’d.  Ruh roh, nothing to do…it was a quiet night at my house.

I have a card to share today featuring another of my favorite never used stamps by Wordsworth.  I so loved the design paper that I added some round cutouts on each corner where I placed my pearls – it lets just a little bit more of the design paper show through.  The dotted green ribbon echoes the pattern of the embossed swiss dots.   I have underused my cuttlebug and I love embossing so I was sure to include it in my card.  In fact, I’ve pre-embossed most of my backgrounds so that I have them handy this week whenever inspiration strikes so expect to see more cuttlebug backgrounds this week.  I have to get it out of my system, right?


Stamps: Wordsworth
Inks:  SU Always Artichoke
Paper:  Bazzill; Autumn Leaves – Shangri-la; SU River Rock
Accessories:  Martha Stewart Pearls; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder; EK Success Punches, Michaels Ribbon


Be blessed!

    Oh this is just lovely! The soft colors don’t compete too much with the sentiment, which is fabulous. I’m going to have to invest in some Wordsworth stamps! Your work is so precise, with meticulous attention to detail. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

    Love how you backed the punched flower with paper … it gives it an entirely different look … gorgeous card.ReplyCancel

    another beautiful card. I absolutely love the colors you have used. As always, I adore your work. Thank you for sharing once again.


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. 


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

    Gorgeous Becca!! The colors are beautiful!ReplyCancel

    I love the sentiment!!!! Such a sweet card. :)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.

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.
