Love Where You’re At

Doesn’t that sentiment say it all?  I just love optimistic sentiments like this!  It’s from Quiefire Design – you can see it and others HERE.  Quietfire has new sentiments (many for Christmas) that I’ll get to show this month; they are already available so keep your eyes peeled if you’re browsing through the store.

I hope you’re having a fabulous day.  I’m basking in something less than scorching temperatures and drinking in the anticipation of fall.  Lol, I’m wisked away with every opportunity to go outside today – so not much computer time.  Today I’m sharing a card I put together for a monthly project over at Quietfire Design.   I wanted to show off the beauty of this sentiment with a super background using Spellbinders Flourish Impressibilites, Spellbinders Lattice Pendant and Spellbinders Classic Ovals .  I love using the letterpress technique but this time I really wanted to punch up the color so instead I brayered it on.  The results are sure gonna make me want to use my Impressibilities more!

You can click over to my project, step by step explanation and supplies HERE.

Be blessed my friends – thanks for stopping by, it simply does my heart good.

    Becca –

    A truly lovely card with a beautiful sentiment. I love the background with the Flourish Impressability. The color you chose and the Impressability almost gives the background a look of burnt velvet. So very rich looking. Thank you again for sharing your art with us.

    Wonderful sentiment and how true. Living in each moment is what is important and not wishing you were/had/deserve/should be something/somewhere else. Only then can God develop character to allow you to have what you need when you get there :D

    LOVE how you did the sides of the card. I “need” that punch!! Onto my Christmas list it goes LOL. Fabulous card all round as always. Blessings.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca!
    I love the verse. I so needed to hear that. A must have stamp.
    I love how you have brayered the background paper. Beautiful layout. The colours are ones I wouldn’t think of using but they work well together.ReplyCancel

  • Val WOctober 2, 2009 - 4:45 pm

    Thanks for that card today Becca. After a bit of a discouraging day at work today, the sentiment just hit me as something meant for me to “hear”. So thanks! It spoke to me.ReplyCancel

    I had an English teacher, Elizabeth Barto, that broke our class from ever saying “where you’re at” by telling us “behind the at”.

    Becca, your card is gorgeous and thank you for finally making a card that I don’t want to copy word for word.

    Your work is truly amazing and thanks so much for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • Angella CrockettOctober 2, 2009 - 5:43 pm

    NOW I need to add Impressabilities to my ever-huge Wish List for Spellbinders — all thanks to (mostly) YOU!!! I just 2 days ago decided I needed the Lattice Pendant & border & now you’ve gone & sold me on the impressing too — I’m just gonna have to unsubscribe from following you, Becca — YEAH, RIGHT, like that’s EVER going to happen! LOL!!! I just today finally got the apron lace punch & love how you’ve used it here — your cleverness never ceases to AMAZE!!! TFS!!!ReplyCancel

  • Grace NyweningOctober 2, 2009 - 6:15 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous Becca!!! I LOVE that flourish bg!!! So rich and elegant and the sentiment is beautifully framed by my personal favorite… that lattice pendant is just soooo pretty! Hugs!ReplyCancel

  • MaryOctober 2, 2009 - 6:52 pm

    Hi Becca I am in love with this card. From being not interested in the Impressabilities I have become a huge fan through your gorgeous examples. You must make very large size cards as I just tried the punched edge idea and it wont fit onto a ‘normal’ size card I must get over the idea of only doing A2 creations :) I guess. Thanks for your continued inspiration :)ReplyCancel

  • AnnOctober 2, 2009 - 10:35 pm

    Gorgeous card! Thank you for the inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • NY DebbieOctober 3, 2009 - 4:22 am

    This is how you used the nesties for the side of the card and also to highlight the sentiment. I just ordered 2 sets of the pendants thanks to you… keep enabling…ReplyCancel
