Computer Issues

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have not fallen off the face of the earth! I am having some computer problems and have not been able to upload my photos. Still trying to figure out what the problem is. I am posting this from my husbands computer.

Hope everyone has a great weekend,

Anniversary Card

I made this card for a girl at work who needed an Anniversary card for her parents. Taking the photo was a bit challenging trying to get the right angle in order to see the Baroque Motif's embossing behind the heart. This look was achieved by stamping image in Craft White and then clear embossing. The heart was stamped on Vellum with versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder. I turned it over and used SU Markers to color it to give it the stained glass look. This card looked so much better in real life!

Stamps: Always, Together Forever, Priceless, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Craft White, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Versamark
Markers: Pixie Pink, Green Galore, Pretty in Pink, YoYo Yellow
Paper: Shimmery White, Blush Blossom, Vellum

these colors made a great spring card.

Well, here it is! Please go visit Stacey at Stacey's Stampin' Stage
You'll love her blog!This is a 3x3 card that I made sometime last year using the chalkboard technique. I can't remember the name of the stamp set as it retired :-(

Elegant Thank You

This was a quick and easy 3" x 6" Thank you card using the Raspberry Tart DSP and making Ric Rac with my scallop edge punch. If you stamp the Thank you with the swirl in the corner, this goes great with the square scallop punch!
