Well, Hurricane Irene is knocking at my door....she's been downgraded to a Category 1, but is bringing lots of rain with her. So, my stamp room is partially packed, everything is up off of the floor and onto my desk top....you see, my stamp room is in the basement. We've had so much rain lately (this has been the 6th wettest August on record!) that with all the rain that Irene is supposed to give us (expecting 7-12 inches tonight!), it's likely that we'll get some water down there. So, no stamping for me!! Sigh! Fortunately, our visitor should be gone by tomorrow afternoon.....definitely an unwelcome visitor!! Hopefully, the aftermath and clean up won't be too awful.
In the meantime, I have a card to share with you! This card was a quick and easy one I made last week...I needed a few thank you, thinking of you, and get well cards. This one was perfect for all those, I just changed out the greeting as needed....this was the first time I used the lovely Flower Garden Embossing Folder. Just a portion of the image was used. To make it stand out a bit more, it was sponged with White Craft Ink and then the centers of each flower was dotted with 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. As you can see, this was paired with the brand-new Houndstooth Embossing Folder in the background. This wonderful new EF is just the perfect size for a card front, but I personally like a nice clean look inside my card....so, this is a layer on layer. Meaning that the embossing is an extra layer on the card base....both in Elegant Eggplant. One of my new favorite color combos is this wonderful color paired with the fabulous new InColor, Wisteria Wonder. Add in just a bit of Whisper White to give it a bit of crispness and set it all off......and it's perfection! Notice that the stamping on this card is minimal.....but, I really do love the finished effect.
