Good morning stamping friends, I mean good early morning. I woke up at 3 something and couldn't go back to sleep so I got up to come in my craft room and stamped a card for the Colourq challenge and for my recruit/friend Kim's birthday today. She had asked me about how to make an easel card again so I made my challenge card an easel card. I haven't used this set in a while and I think it turned out so pretty.
It is a chilly morning and when I finish this I can probably go back to bed for awhile. I am going to prep for a party I have on the 7th and then the next weekend I leave for IA for my nephews wedding. I got my salsa done last night and then took garbage into town and went to take a walk with my friend that I haven't seen for awhile.
On my card the card base is Soft Suede, then Cajun Craze that I textured with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I stamped the flowers in Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie ink and then die cut that out with the Apothecary Accents. I sponged around the die cut with Soft Suede and then added some "Bling" with the Basic Rhinestones. The Ribbon is Stitched Grosgrain. I color spritzed the front of my card with the Color Spritzer Tool and my Cajun Craze Marker. I cut a piece of Cajun Craze Card Stock and used my Scallop Border Punch and then cut a Whisper White piece to layer over it and I stamped the swirly stamp with Soft Suede ink that I had stamped off. Then I used the Perfectly Pen set for my Happy Birthday that I stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I used the Cajun Craze instead of the Dusty Durango for the challenge. I think it turned out so pretty and that is what my friend Kim deserves.
I hope you have a terrific day and I love reading all your sweet comments. AHHH(yawn) I am going back to bed. Hugs, Bev
