Embossing on Designer Series Paper

I saw this in the Stampin' Success Magazine and just had to try it. What a quick and easy way to make a card. Stamp image on the paper with Versamark and emboss with White EP. It looks better IRL (in real life)! The size of this card is 3x3.
Thanks for stopping by ;-)

Graduation Card for my Friend!

My friend Crystal received her MBA at graduation last Saturday and this is the card I made for her. I purchased the cap & gown at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section, I just could not resist! I also found this paper and Crystal likes browns, plus the fact that there is glitter in the flowers was an added bonus. Graduation was awesome and afterwards we were also invited to dinner. Crystal made mention out of the blue one day that she wanted a Wii, so we got her one! She said, "You guy's, a Wii!!!" But that's not all, during desert her boyfriend Dave proposed to her! What an awesome day.

Jewelry Color Inspiration #36 & Mojo Monday #86

Hello Everyone!
Sorry for the lack of posting, last week they found a superficial blood clot in my right leg. I was laid up for a couple of days and on antibiotics, elevate leg, heating pad, daily aspirin. Doing much better, pain is gone but there is still a lump in my leg. On to stamping...
I love the color combo that Stacey has this week and I thought I would give Mojo Monday Sketch a try also. I used the "Watercolor Technique" that I learned from Patty Bennett you should check it out, it's an awesome video tutorial.
I used the heart stamp from the "Always" stamp set and used Versamark on Shimmery White cardstock and used white embossing powder. I then sprayed the paper with water until the water was standing and then I picked up the reinker colors with the aqua painter and applied to the heart. I love the tie dye effect. The butterflies are from the "Priceless" stamp set. I first inked the stamp with Versamark then into Tempting Turquoise and stamped onto Whisper White and applied Heat & Stick powder heated and applied Dazzling Diamonds. Did the same with the Lavender Lace butterfly. I like this technique to use the classic ink and versamark together. TIP: I have two Versamark pads, one for this technique (as sometimes ink gets on the Versamark pad) & another one just for Versamark use only.
Thanks for stopping by :-)

Mother's Day Rose

I have seen this rose all over cyberspace,
I did not come across the tutorial until after I had
already finished my rose. See "Patty's Stamping
Spot" for an awesome video tutorial.
I used shimmery white cardstock, versamark and white embossing powder. Then I mixed Pink Pirouette with Rubbing alcohol and diluted it to make a light shade of Pink. Next I mixed Barely Banana with the alcohol and did the inside of the petals. Went back over it again with the Pink Pirouette on the edges. Patty's Tutorial makes this so much easier but I thought mine turned out okay.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
