LaBlanche Foxglove

LaBlanche Foxglove stamp

Before I tell about my card today I first want to thank all of you who visited my blog yesterday and commented on that Heartfelt Creations pink and white card.  I was very happy to receive an email from SCS this morning telling me it has made the "Favorites" list.  That was exciting!   Many of you have emailed me and asked for the template for that card.  After a lot of research, I found it on SCS and it is called a "Center Step" card.  Here is the link for the tutorial.

Today I created a card with another LaBlanche stamp called "Foxglove" LB1063.  You can order this stamp from Joan's Gardens.  Have you seen all the new LaBlanche stamps that Joan just posted on her blog?  They are gorgeous.  Later Joan will be posting the new LaBlanche Christmas line and I can hardly wait!   They are fabulous -- sorry I have to make you wait to see them.  

When I saw this beautiful LaBlanche foxglove stamp on Joan's blog, I immediately thought it would be pretty with "Flower Soft" on the flowers, so that is what I have done today.  The image was stamped into an embossed frame created with the Marianne Design DS0908 embossing folder. The paper used is the LaBlanche Specialty Stamping Paper. The embossed piece was attached to a dark purple piece that was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to the right side of a 5.5" square card.  The image was colored with Copic markers then a mixture of lavender and violet Flower Soft was added.  A pretty piece of trim was added to the left side of the card.

As you know, all products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

It is a beautiful day here in Washington so I am going to go out and enjoy the sun this afternoon.  Hope you are having a great weekend.
