Sale -a-bration. ~ You’re Lovely stamp set

A card made for an acquaintance who was recently diagnosed.

imageThe base card is Stampin’ Up’s Blushing Bride card, dry embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder then topped with a Tea Time paper doily.

The ‘You’re Lovely stamp set was used for the center embellishment layered on to Sahara Sand card both of which were cut with the Deco Labels Framelits.  Basic Gray ink was used then Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink and a blender pen used to water color the flowers.

This was adhered using stampin dimensionals with a twist of 1\4 stitched Blushing Bride grosgrain ribbon and a gentle sprinkling of pearls to finish off. Hopefully it conveys encouragement for her upcoming treatment.

My Project 4-001Happy Stamping 🙂

I have been a little behind in keeping up with my posts this last week.  Those of you who know me also know that I work as a tax preparer for H & R  Block and this time of year is very busy.  But I have been working on projects for my classes as well as projects for family and friends.

This week the goodies for the share arrived…… Packets of beautiful paper and vellum,  spools of scrummy ribbon and the cutest buttons and clothes pins!

I spent a lovely couple of hours cutting and sorting them all ready to go to their  new homes……… If you would like to join in the next share please contact me….. I will be delighted to welcome you to the club 🙂

I wanted to make some party favours for New Year and decided to use an idea of Connie Stewart’s from Simply Simple Stamping to make them in the shape of a slice of pie,and since I was using different shades of blue I have dubbed it ‘blueberry pie’  Continue reading
