I managed to squeeze one more card out this weekend! My son, daughter-in-law & granddaughter are visiting here from Michigan. We all went to a family wedding last night with my two daughters who live here and their husbands and children. It was a fun crazy night! Anyway....for this card I pulled out as many thank you stamps as I could find, arranged them all on a piece of white card stock, then heat embossed them with black Versafine Ink & clear embossing powder. Next I used Tim Holtz distress inks, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Peeled Paint to ink over the sentiments, and put the finished panel on a black note card. I used to be intimidated by these inks, but once I started playing with them, really got to like them! Normally I would use these stamps only as a single sentiment on a card, but saw others using them as a card front & a way of stretching your stamps, and think it is smart & looks really good! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Mother of two girls, one boy. Grandmother to ten with #11 on the way. My daughter Elaine introduced me to scrapbooking through a Creative Memories party about 15 years ago, and somehow I became addicted!! Then from there I got interested in making greeting cards for family members. One of my New Years Resolution's this year was to create a blog and enter more cardmaking/scrapbooking challenges! So here I am!!!
