I hope everyone is having a great week!! I am back today with another card. I had a little disagreement with Blogger and the orientation of my picture but as my Dad always tells me " It's operator error" so after blaming the computer and program, it came out fine on the third try. WOO HOO. This card is a cute card I am going to send to my friend in Texas just to say Hi. Here is the skinny:
Cardstock: So Saffron, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise (all pg. 166), Whisper White (pg. 169).
Ink: Old Olive and So Saffron (pg. 166)
Stamp Sets: Apple Blossoms ( Level 2 Hostess Set pg. 12)
Accessories: Curly Label Punch (pg. 203), Basic Pearls (pg. 188), Island Oasis Designer Series Paper (pg. 27) from the Summer Mini Catalog that ends on 8/31/2010.
This card uses the Rock n' Roll technique on the apple blossom stamps. The middle one is plain Old Olive then the the right and left side you clean the stamp of the Old Olive ink and stamp in So Saffron and before you stamp you roll just the edges of your stamp in the Old Olive then stamp on the Whisper White cardstock, then clean the stamp and repeat for the third stamp. I had never done it before, (thanks for teaching me Frances) but it worked great and I love the effect!! For the little tag I punched the Curly label and cut it in half. Really cute and I love the colors!! I hope you enjoy, and tomorrow as promised..... pictures of my newly renovated and completed stamp room, I am so happy it is done and can't wait to show it to you!!!! Oh and I might have a card too.... he he he.
