Hey there everyone - are you glad it's Friday? I actually can't believe it's Friday! This week has just flown by in our house. I've had Emma home three days this week, two for school closure and today she is home sick. Poor baby, she's had this awful cold/flu and just can't shake it. We took her to the doctor on Monday and even with the meds she got, she's still sick. As a Mom, don't you just want to take it all on yourself so they don't have to be miserable? I wish I could just snap my fingers and have her better, but hopefully the rest, extra sleep, meds and lots of love will heal her up soon.
Anyway, I have done a LOT of stamping this week - had my fun Firehouse stamp camp last night - and my downline meeting is tomorrow, so there has been lots to do! Here is one of the cards we did last night and it's another little sneak peek from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Brochure! Don't forget, Sale-A-Bration starts on the 25th! You don't want to miss the FREE stampin' supplies you receive with each $50 order! It's the best time of the year for stampers!
This card was really the easiest one from stamp camp last night, but easy doesn't mean ugly! I love clean and simple stamping!
We used Very Vanilla cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. Then we just sponged over it lightly with Pretty in Pink ink, bringing out the floral empression. The centers were colored in with the Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker.
It's hard to see in the photos, but the stamped greeting - from the Punch Bunch stamp set - is actually stamped twice and layered. The bottom layer is just stamped in Early Espresso then punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. Then I cleaned the stamp and used my markers to color just the flowers and greeting. This was punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I added a Pearl Jewel and popped it up on a dimensional before adhering it on top of the piece of Early Espresson Satin Ribbon. The ends of the ribbon are under the greeting so the ribbon looks pretty inside the card as well as the outside!
Stamping the envelope was a great final touch and I even sponged the edges with pink!
Thanks for stopping by today - hope you like this little sneak peek!
