Hey there! We are having a SNOW DAY in Southern Illinois! You wouldn't think this 58 year-old grandma would be so excited, but it's 16 degrees with about an inch of ice and a skittering of snow on top! Not to mention the wind is blowing fiercely! Mark has the wood stove burning merrily; sitting on the couch under my heated throw makes me thankful for a snug and cozy home! A snow day also means my daughter gets to stay home and love on her babies!
Now that I'm feeling better, (I still feel like I'm coughing up a lung about every other morning) I've finally had some mojo to play with my Sale-a-bration freebies. I played with the Lots of Lavender and Heartfelt Blooms sets to create this:
I created the loopy bow by winding the Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon around my hand about 5 times, then tied another piece of ribbon around the center of the loops tightly. after fanning out the loops I adhered the the card with a couple of glue dots.
The Lots of Lavendar stamp set is free with a $50 order from any current catalog. I stamped the bloom with Tuxedo Black Momento ink so I could both stamp it with the fill-in images from the set with Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz AND color the bow with a Light Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Marker. I cut the layers with the Lots of Labels Framelits dies.
I love the fonts used in the Heartfelt Blooms set. They stamp very crisply on Whisper White!
I used one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders on the Wisteria Wonder layer, flipping the folder around after the first embossing so there would be both the positive and the negative impressions.
Inside I stamped and colored the lavender again, as well as another Heartfelt Blooms sentiment. I cut the white layer 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"to allow more of the embossed Wisteria Wonder layer to show.
As a final touch on the inside and outside lavender I added Clear Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer.
