Love that Painters Tape Technique

Hi again stamping buds. Here is a card that I stamped last night  for a funeral today. My Mom's cousin passed away. I stamped it quick last night and talk about a quick simple card but nice. I love how it turned out don't you? It just amazes me what we can do with thinks in the hardware department at Ace Hardware.  Now I have seen videos on this where they say you have to use glossy card stock and I have proved them wrong.  This is the Naturals White Card Stock with my card base of Pool Party.  I cut out the greeting with the Apothecary Framelits and before I pushed the label out of the framelit I inked up my sponge and sponged inside the framelit which leaves a nice white edge. I added a couple of pearls and popped it up with dimensionals. The stripes are once again from Painter's Tape. I hope you aren't sick of that technique as I love it. LOL! And it is so quick and easy. I love that.

I just got home from the funeral and it was such a sweet tribute to my Mom's cousin. I felt so bad for his daughters Kimi and Tami. I was happy I got to know them a bit better today as they are both lovely ladies. It is a gorgeous day here today. I just got all the jars out of my car and thought it was this weekend my sister was coming back home from MT but it isn't till the 5th. I guess I was anxious.
