I had a wonderful dinner with my stamping girlfriends tonight and we had an opportunity to welcome back a long distance friend – we love you Linda!!  As I reflect back on the evening I know that life is good!  

I was able to make a quick card tonight.  I’ve been itching to use my Paisley Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.   Not knowing how to color it, I pulled out my white primsacolor pencil and it was quick, fast and easy to color, plus no mess.  The white makes for a very subtle look.  I added a stamped panel and decided to hang a tiny sentiment.

Here is a little bit more detail…


Stamps:  Stampers Anonymous, Savvy Stamps

Paper:  K & Co Bailey, Bazzill

Inks:  SU More Mustard, SU Close to Cocoa

Accessories:  Michaels Ribbon, paper clip


Have a great day,

    I love all of you, too! Our dinner and time together was wonderful. Thank you, Becky, for my wonderful note card set. I got it home safely, and it’s sitting where I can see it every day. It’s so pretty that I don’t know if I’ll ever actually open it to see the cards!ReplyCancel

    another beautiful card, I really like this one. its just so different and elegant, suttle, and the list goes on and on. U will have to tell me if that is one stamp or two with the design. the white on the paisley turned out really well, keep em coming u are teaching me so much….

Another quick post to offer – my girls are going out of town for the weekend and I’m grabbing a couple of minutes in between helping them.

I love this dress….this is my first time to use it and I knew that I wanted to try the Kiss Technique since it is a solid stamp.    To start off I stamped the dress and before appying to paper, I stamped on the wet stamp with a swirly background.  Then when I stamped the dress it showed the swirly pattern as well.  My next step was to apply a mask over the dress and sponge on More Mustard, Cameo Coral and Close to Cocoa around the edges of the dress panel.  Then I stamped a script word stamp over top of the masked dress.  Finishing included mounting on two dark mauve panels, adding ribbon and brads and stamping the Dream sentiment.

Have a fabulous day!!

Where this card started and where it ended are 180 degrees plus a little bit of serendipity. 

My inspiration was the filigree type stamp (another huge stamp) and yes it left me few options because of the size.  I selected shimmery DCWV papers from their Luxury Collection and Metallic Collection and after stamping on several plain papers settled on this shimmery print.  The serendipity came in with the background – I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and hated really didn’t like how it looked.  I wondered how the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder would look and embossed it on the same piece of paper since I was going to throw it away.  Well, I loved how overlaying both embossing folders on one piece of paper looked, and used it in the card.  The serendipity fairy appeared again when I was stamping and positioning  the word "Amen".  I was a tad short on the ribbon and in my zeal pulled it up pretty tight to tie the knots, which created an arch in the paper.  I liked it and decided to keep it. 


Stamps:  Stampa Rosa, Rubber Stampede

Paper: Die Cuts with a View – Luxury Stack and Metallic Stack

Ink:  Black Brilliance

Accessories:  Gold brads, gold ribbon, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Swirls Embossing Folders.

    pretty card, I like the double cuttlebug emb. folders. the brad or button with the lion head is different and elegant. Isnt it funny how things just kinda work themselves out, like your ribbon makeing an arch in the paper. I will have to try that.

    i like the card. I will have to try the short ribbon technique.
