I know I haven't been very good about posting on my blog this past week. I caught some kind of stomach bug and have not felt like working on cards - I should say doing anything! I am one of those people that washes my hands constantly and luckily do not get sick often, but this bug got me good and I still don't feel very good.
This is a card I started last week and thought I would finish it up this morning. The stamps are from the new StampTV kit "Picture It". I always really look forward to the new kits because they are packed full of great things and this one was no exception. This little stamp is solid rubber so first thing I thought of was to use markers to color it, then spritz it with a fine mist of water before stamping it. It was cut out using square Nestabilities. For the embossed background, I first used a Martha Stewart punch for the border then scored some lines above it using my new Martha Stewart Score Board. (These Martha Stewart items are available at Joan's Gardens. Joan has a great tutorial on her blog showing how to make your own envelopes using this new Score Board.) The top portion of this background was embossed using the Cuttlebug dotted Swiss embossing folder. The greeting from the Picture It stamp set was stamped and cut out with petite oval Nestabilities. Both the design and the wish are on dimensionals. A piece of pink dotted Swiss ribbon was added with a piece of ScorTape. Some small MS butterflies were added to complete the card.
Hope you like this card. If you haven't seen it, you should go to Gina K Designs and check out this great StampTV kit "Organize It" This kit includes two stamp sets. One of them includes everything needed to organize your work area and/or desk. Gina has videos on the home page of StampTV with some really great projects you can make with this kit. Check it out here. The list of projects is in the side bar under "Watch More Episodes".
