Pin It


Hi & Hello

It's a miracle! I *finally* managed to stamp and finish a card! I've been trying since Friday, schwooo! That was scary! lol! I actually started this card a few weeks ago...well, I had the Groovy Gauva large scallop circle (thanks to Coluzzle and the Slit Punch), the small felt flower, and the Blue Bayou square card...I just finally managed to do something with them.

What first started this card was the small felt flower. Yes, it's a SU pumpkin felt flower and I decided to see what would happen if I heat embossed it with white powder. And that's what happened! I smushed the entire flower in the Versamark pad, covered it with Winter White embossing powder and heated it up. It covered pretty well, but I repeated the whole process one more time to be safe. I've been experimenting some more with these flowers and will share in a few days.

I was really wanting to sew around the edge of this card and the edge of the scallop flower, but I was just too lazy! So I compromised and used the zigzag stamp from All in a Row to at least get the effect around the edge of the card. The brown twill ribbon and the little white label are from Martha Stewart. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you all for your super sweet comments the last few days! Everything is sinking in and I'm feeling better. I went with DH to see Iron Man today. He's been waiting patiently for me for weeks now...stuff kept coming up and I kept putting him off. We actually had a bet between Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk (he doesn't understand the need for another Hulk movie, which I agree with, but it has Edward Norton, Jr., come on!!). I'm afraid he's going to win, because Iron Man was awesome!

I've also read several comments asking for instructions on how to make those little mini albums that I made for my students and how to put them together, so check back tomorrow for that!

Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped today?
