Stamp TV Potluck Friday 24 an Taylored Expressions 76
A very dear friend of mine has a birthday on Tuesday. Her two favorite things are purple and chocolate. I was trying to think of something special to give her. Yesterday LeAnne at Wee Inkling shared a wonderful hostess gift that she made. It was a set of note cards. I decided to make a dozen note cards all in purple. I finished seven yesterday. Today I got up and decided to go to Gina K’s store to buy a couple of the newly released stamps and fill up my punch card. I needed inspiration for the last five cards, really. This card is made with a stamp from the new Stamp TV kit called Signs of Autumn. Oh, yea I filled up the card and then some. The new stamps are fantastic. Take a look. I used this Friday’s Stamp TV Pot Luck challenge to guided me. The challenge was to use a sunflower stamp and the bleach technique. I stamped the image with Versa Mark on purple card stock and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. Then I painted the image with bleach. It was fun to watch the color disappear as it dried. The sentiment is from a set called “Say it with Flowers” from Stamp TV by Melanie Muenchinger. I used SU whisper white ribbon, and rhinestones by Kaiser. The purple dp is by Paper Pizzas. I used Memento grape jelly ink to edge the image. I made two of these cards. That was all I needed to get the idea for the last three cards. The second picture is the set of cards I am giving my friend for her birthday. I am also giving her chocolate. I hope she likes her note cards. Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping.
PS. I just notice that this is the same sketch over at Taylored Expressions 76
