It’s been a little crazy here the last few weeks. Seems I have a little problem with my eye called posterior vitreous detachment. It’s nothing to serious, unfortunately it’s irritating so I haven’t been stamping much. Last weekend, my daughter and grandson went with me up to Ottawa, Canada to visit family. We had a great time but as usual we can never fit in everything we’d like to do.
Today’s card uses the set Very Versailles. It is a beautiful set and I just can’t get enough of it. As well as being beautiful, the font is very elegant, this set would work for thank you, sympathy, get well and even a birthday. Can you tell I really, really love this stamp set.
The first thing I did was to cut a panel of whisper white cardstock and stamped the background writing in gray granite, then over that the branch in mossy meadow ink. I mounted that on a sllightly larger panel of mossy meadow. Pool party is the base, and I first stamped the little boarder stamp with the awesome new silvery shimmer delicata stamp pad. Before adhering the main panel, I wrapped the silver thread around a few times. The sentiment strip was stamped in grey granite with the stamparatus moving it one hinge at a time. It was popped up with dimensionals, a few rhinestones later and another card was completed. Hope you like.

Where does the time go? Yesterday, I was looking at the calendar, we are half way through October already. Time to get a move on, Christmas will be here before we know it, I for one, don’t like to leave things to the last minute. Needless to say, that includes my Christmas Greeting Cards.
My card I am sharing with you today is made from the Peaceful Boughs Bundle in the Holiday Catalog. The base is Very Vanilla thick cardstock. I cut a piece of the beautiful Wrapped in Plaid DSP to fit the card front, then cut out the bough and pine cones. Stamping the greeting in the new Delicata Golden Glitz ink, which is amazing, onto a piece of very vanilla, I then adhere it to the front. Added the die cut pieces and a bit of Braided linen trim to top it off and it was all done.
I would love it if you hit the subscribe button to the right.

Thinking outside of the box, I tweaked the image of the girl to make her into a witch. This is easy enough to do by omitting the top of the hat and the bottom of her dress. After stamping her onto the cardstock it was just a matter of lightly drawing in the witch hat and the sleeves and bottom of the dress. Once I masked off the moon and Basic Gray was sponged over the rest of the Whisper White cardstock it was time to add the other stamped images from Wonderfully Wicked. When it came time to color her outfit in I used a blender pen and my Basic Black maker. Time for me to invest in Basic Black Blends
Tip, if you are omitting from an image, it’s easier to use a marker rather than a stamp pad. Just remember to huff on the stamp before stamp.
