Well, it's been a while since I last posted. Last weekend was busy and the week before was Thanksgiving. Time just got away from me. I have been busy working on some publication submissions as well. Fingers crossed I get some picked up again! :-)
I've got a card to share today and while it is a Christmas card it's not purple! LOL. Take a look....
This card gave me some trouble. I just couldn't seem to get it the way I wanted and then I saw a sketch challenge and it just worked perfectly! So first I inked up my tree stamp (Hero Arts) with midnight and aqua (Color Box) blending them on the stamp. I made a oval frame for it and colored the edge with a pale aqua spectrum noir marker. I ran a white panel of cardstock through a snowflake embossing folder (Darice) and adhered this to my white card base. I stamped my sentiment (Hero Arts LP209) in midnight and cut it out with my circle cutter. I attached it and the oval with some foam dots to my card. I really like this HA stamp. It's a cool negative effect.
I'm linking up to the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and More - it's their "holiday" theme.
CAS on Sunday - embossing.
Hero Arts Holiday challenge - this card would fall into the "white out" category.
a2z Scrapbooking - use two Hero Arts products. I've used two different stamps.
STAMPlorations - biweekly sketch challenge.
I'd also like to welcome two new followers! A warm welcome to Mary of Very Inky Fingers ( I have ink stains on mine right now. LOL) and Bobby of Bits & Pieces. Please take the time to visit their blogs and check out their cards. Leave some love too!
Well, I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!

I love your card. Its apparent simplicity disguises all the planning and work it obviously took. The first impression it gives me is of a Delft porcelain piece. Beautirul. TFSReplyDelete
