Monday, April 13th, 2009

Hi, It’s a rainy Monday. A great day to make cards. The one I made today was just for fun. I got the stamp last weekend at a used stamp and scrap sale. It was something! A lot of pushing and grabbing but a lot of good deals. The stamp is from Great Impressions it is G194. I colored it with Stampin’ Up watercolor pencils and I used a Close to my Heart blending pen. That was fun to do. I used certainly celery paper and ribbon. The background paper was Delicate Dots Designer paper, all from Stampin’ Up. The flower was cut and embossed with Cuttlebug’s Build-a-Flower die. That was my new toy this weekend. I wasn’t sure if I should cut then emboss or the other way around. It worked best when I cut then embossed. I use a little removable adhesive to keep it in position. The sentiment is something I typed on my computer. When I call my oldest son he always says "What's Up" instead of saying Hello. It makes me laugh everytime. Let me know what you think or advice to make it better.
