Holy cow my long lost blog friends!!! I tell you, life can sure send you a curve ball every once in a while. I have a few projects to catch up on…..I’ll do a couple tonight and then finish them off tomorrow! Our lovely Lisa (Ashdale) over on SCS has taken over the hostess job of our weekly I Spy Challenge. As it was Kathy’s (muscrat) birthday last week, she had us all make Birthday cards for Kathy to send out to her. I asked Kathy what her favorite color was and one of them was blue…..so off to make a blue card I went.
I love this stamp image. It’s from my Close To My Heart ‘Find Your Style’ set. I stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and then painted over it with my Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Picket Fence to give it a muted and aged look. I added the bow and inked it with the Memento ink as well.
I added a strip of bling from want 2 scrap along the right edge to add to the vintage feel of the card. I die cut and then embossed the edge of the card with my new Stampin’ Up! Edgelets Adorning Accents die cut and the scalloped edge Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Here’s a view of the whole card. I stamped a journalling stamp twice on the background of the card in Tim Holtz Distress Ink ‘Peeled Paint”, added some half pearls and the sentiment is from one of my favorite sets which is made by Hot Off The The Press and their ‘Tiny Words & Imagews’ set.
Off to post the next card. Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it very much!!
