Hey there! I'm doing better, not great, but better. Lots of rest, fluids, and Nyquil are doing their job! After my fever broke during the night last night, I've been feeling quite a bit better. My head's still very stuffy and my nose is still runny (TMI, sorry!), but at least I don't feel like I'm carrying a baby elephant on my back like I did yesterday!
I'm so glad it's Sunday Swap Day, because at least today I have some pretty things to show you!
Raedean Shibata's creation with Hardwood, Peaceful Petals, Lacy & Lovely, Chalk Talk & Ovals Framelits. A layer of Vellum cardstock is held down to the cardfront with Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape. Raedean stamped directly on the vellum with StazOn Black ink, then colored the blossoms, stems, and leaves with Stmapin' Write Markers.
Ruthann Liley's creation with Petite Petals Bundle, Hearts Framelits, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Bird Builder Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Itty Bitty Banners Framelits, & Rhinestones. She used Primrose Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and ink, and cardstock colors of Whisper White and Pistachio Pudding.
This would make a pretty wedding, valentine, or baby card too!
Kathy Johnson's creation with Secret Garden and "Thinking of You" from Thoughts and Prayers. Her colors are Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, and stamped-off Daffodil Delight for the centers. She cut out the main flower with the coordinating Secret Garden Framelit. After stamping all the flowers and leaves on Whisper White she embossed the layer with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder and the Big Shot.
Bluesox Stamping Tip: "Stamping Off" is a stamping term used when you ink your stamp on the stamp pad, then stamp on a piece of scrap paper at least one time before stamping on your project. This gives you a lighter version of the original color. It also gives you TWO shades for the price of one inkpad!
Nancy Hall heat-embossed Vivid Vases with Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss Powder on Soft Suede cardstock for her creation. She mounted it on a layer of Coastal Cabana which had been dry-embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Folder. She accented a flower with a Pearl Basic Jewel, and punched a little banner flag with the Banner Punch and Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper. There are 12 different designs in each package of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, which all coordinate with each other, making it the perfect additon to just about any project!
