I love monogram cards and took a moment to sit down and work up one that I may make into an entire set.   This was very easy to put together and has simple, simple lines.   These can certainly be whipped up quickly for a gift and put into a decorated box or tin. 

Stamps:  Martha Stewart
Paper:  Bazzill; DCWV
Ink:  Versamagic – Sahara Sand
Accessories:  Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder

Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy Friday and I hope you have a fabulous weekend planned!

    Becca, I love both your monogram card and the Wordsworth card! You do such elegant work. I have sort of a love/hate relationship with Martha but I sure like that monogram stamp and scalopped punch. Question: is the monogram on the envy flap the same stamp as the larger image or a different one? Both cards are so lovely.ReplyCancel

    Wow…I love your monogram cards. So beautiful and elegant. Have you ever seen the JustRite monogram stamper? I think you would like it. BTW, love your blog and added you to my Google Reader…and I found you through the SCS forums!ReplyCancel

If you’ve visited much since I began blogging, you may have noticed that I have a fondness for Wordsworth stamps.  I have a small collection and it’s been a dream come true to actually use them.  I have many more to go, but once I’m done you can rest assured that I’ll casually mention to my husband that I’ve used them up and perhaps it’s time to get more….(smiles innocently). 

The card is 7" tall by 3.5" wide – I know, how odd!   I finally found a way to work in the Memory Box – Sprout paper from my stash!  Lastly the bridal flowers from Michaels were originally too stark to use as they were, so I shaded them with V01 Copic.

As always, thank you for stopping by.  I so appreciate all the sweet, sweet comments that are left and feel blessed to know you take a moment out of your day to visit.

    that saying is perfect for today, which is friday and it is storming outside. it brightens the day. love the colors paper and layout. good job thanks for sharing. im going to have to check out that wedding section!!ReplyCancel


Another choice of stamp from my short stack.  I’ve been trying to think of a different way to work with this stamp and today, with much trepidation, I pulled out my brayer.  We were slightly reacquainted, but there  is still a lot of bonding to do.  On this card I really played it safe with that brayer because I’m not so much at home with using it.  First, I stamped with Black Brilliance then embossed with clear embossing powder.   I masked off the sky and brayered in the mountains, then masked the mountains, laid down a dot for the sun and brayered over it with SU Bordering Blue.  I pulled up the masking dot and colored the shape with So Saffron and More Mustard. 

Stamps:  Wordsworth
Paper:  K&Co; Bazzill
Ink:  Black Brilliance; SU Bordering Bl
SU More Mustard; SU So Saffron; SU Mellow Moss; Versamark
Accessories: Brads, ribbon

The image on this second card was fished out of the garbage at my daughters insistence; she maintained that she like it better than the other……go figure.  This card was colored with chalks.  Note to self:  once you chalk over already heated, clear embossing powder, the chalk does not come off.

    OK–I would have pulled that one out of the garbage too! They are both nice–but I like the lighter one also. Not sure what it is about it–maybe that it looks more hopeful, like the verse–where the first one is darker in mood? But they are both lovely! Thanks for sharing them!ReplyCancel

  • Kay McBrideMay 15, 2008 - 11:51 am

    i like them both. they are both loveyly and i like the sentiment. thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • nancy bMay 15, 2008 - 5:14 pm

    I have to agree…they are both great! But why would I expect anything less from you! You blessed me today. thanks.ReplyCancel

  • Jamie W.May 16, 2008 - 6:43 am

    I like them both, Becca! You did a wonderful job with the brayering too. That’s one of my favorite scriptures, a wonderful one to bring to mind when life tosses us to and fro! Thanks so much!ReplyCancel

  • LaurieMay 17, 2008 - 10:40 am

    Love them both, and receiving them would be an encouragement to anyone! You’ve inspired me to go try some brayer work…ReplyCancel
