Elegant Bouquet

Last week I participated in a 10 4 $10 card making event. I haven't gotten my copies of the cards that were made plus I haven't had time to take a picture and write up directions for the card that I had the ladies make. Therefore, I'm going to post this card instead since it's been sitting around for some time now.

This card was exceptionally easy to put together. I used Rose Red CS for the base and attached a layer of Whisper White to it. I ran a piece of Raspberry Tart DSP through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder. Taking my sanding block, I rubbed over the embossed areas to remove some of the color and to expose the white core. This was attached to the card base.

I stamped the sentiment on to Whisper White with Rose Red ink and punched out with the Modern Label Punch. The Scalloped Oval was used to punch out Rose Red and a circle was punched out of Whisper White. The white circle was attached to the card, and the Thinking of You sentiment was attached to the scalloped oval and that was attached with dimensionals to the card front.

Super Simple!

Recipe:
Stamp Set: Kind and Caring Thoughts for sentiment (Level 3 hostess)
Paper: Raspberry Tart DSP, Rose Red, Whisper White CS
Ink: Rose Red
Other: Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder, sanding block, scalloped oval, 1 3/8" circle, modern label punch

Not quite there yet, but I'm coming along!

Dear Stamping Friends,

I'm still getting over my terrible cold but at least I'm not doing as much coughing and my sinus pain is gone. Back about a week ago I was wondering why in the WORLD the Good Lord would put sinus passages into human heads. All mine were doing were causing me pain and trouble!

I was able to attend the Stampin' Up! Regional Convention last Friday without too much problem. I have a lot of swaps that I got and hope to have some of what I swapped available for viewing soon. It's just hard to concentrate on this stuff when it's hard to see.

Hope all of YOU are staying healthy!

SICK, SICK, SICK

Hello fellow stampers! The title has been my life this past week. I've been very sick with a cold. Major head and chest congestion. Hubby has been sick since the 24th. I just haven't been able to get anything posted. We were supposed to travel to see my Mom for the Easter holiday. Had to cancel that trip. I'm SO bummed!

Anyway, hope everyone has a Happy Easter holiday and I'll try to post next week if I'm feeling better.

Life is a Beautiful Thing

Some days it just doesn't pay to try to be creative.  Today was one of those days.  I knew I had to make a card since I wanted to post s...
