Hello again! I'll skip the fluff and get straight to the stamping.
This is the card I made for my husband for our anniversary. I clear embossed the colored tree by covering the stamp in VersaMark and then coloring with markers. Very simple and easy-to-make card.
Stamps: Easy Events
Cardstock: Crumb Cake
Ink: Basic Black, VersaMark, Stampin' Write Markers (Garden Green, Real Red, Early Espresso)
Other: Clear Embossing Powder
Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse
Other: 3/16" Corner Punch, 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (Daffodil Delight)
This is the first of two cards we were supposed to make on Saturday. I based it on a card I posted already (Best Friend Forever) and modified it just a little bit.
Stamps: Fabulous Phrases
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Whisper White, Primrose Petals, Polka Dot Parade DSP (Daffodil Delight)
Ink: Primrose Petals
Other: Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, White Gel Pen
And this is the second card we were supposed to make on Saturday, again based on a card I already posted (the one with the umbrella). I really like the way this one turned out, especially the way the faux stitching around the outside mimics the stitching on the ribbon.
Stamps: For the Birds
Cardstock: Basic Gray, So Saffron, Whisper White, Polka Dot Parade DSP (Marina Mist)
Ink: Basic Gray
Other: 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (Basic Gray), White Gel Pen
So anyway, I was supposed to have a workshop on Saturday. I was excited because I was supposed to have around six people there. The only person that showed up was my upline, who lives an hour and a half away. I was pretty disappointed but as they say, every cloud has a silver lining. Now I can use these cards at my workshop later this month and I don't have to prep anything ;)
If my calculations are correct, I'm way behind. I have an extra day off this week (today) because of the holiday so I'd better hop to it! Thanks for stopping by :)
