Happy Saturday stamping friends. This is what I think of all of you.....you are Bloomin' Marvelous too. I am happy today because we are one day closer to warmer temps, because I am so blessed by all my friends I have because of Stampin' UP!, because I have a loving family, because I am healthy and last but not least I have a new star in my sky. I had a date with him last night and I am so giddy about it. I applied for a couple more jobs today just to get me out of the house and meet new customers and hostesses. I hope anyway.
Okay, this card I stamped for a Design Challenge and my card base is Raspberry Ripple, the second layer is the Poetry Prints DSP stack and the top is Very Vanilla that I stamped with the flower and the words from the Bloomin' Marvelous Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. FREE with a $50.00 purchase. I stamped the flower in Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit ink and the words were stamped in Midnight Muse ink. I think it kind of looks like Designer Series Paper doesn't it. When I stamp like this I start in a brick pattern with each color and then I fill in with color where I need it and notice how I go off the edge of the card stock. Now on the lighter Raspberry color I inked up my stamp and stamped off on my scrap paper and then stamped and it looks like it is a different color but it isn't. I added some Raspberry Ripple Stictched Satin Ribbon and layed down a strip of Sticky Strip and then pressed down my ribbon and cut it on the ends. This holds it in place. I added a ribbon slide that was available in the last catalog and I hope they will be in the new book when it comes out in a few months. I attached that with Glue Dots. I think it turned out pretty cute don't you? I just realized I didn't even use the Big Shot. WOW!
