Thinking of You

My stamping time has been almost non-existent these past few days, which you *know* is making me grumpy {grin}. I did find this card that I made a few weeks ago for Verve's latest release, but forgot to post here. A no-designer-paper card is a rarity for me these days. Too bad, huh? I'd forgotten how much fun it is to stamp your own! The gorgeous medallion images in Verve's Accent Notes are perfect to combine and arrange into different patterns. I went with a soft, pastel color combo using Stampin' Up's Mellow Moss, Bashful Blue, and Apricot Appeal, stamped onto Papertrey's Vintage Cream. The glittery frame in the center is a Framed Fonts Glimmer Chip by Tattered Angels. I smooshed Papertrey's Spring Moss ink onto it, then added the clear glitter coating using heat-and-stick powder. In the center of the chipboard frame is the "thinking of you" sentiment, which is also from Accent Notes. The edges of all the panels are inked with Ranger's Antique Linen Distress ink for a bit of an aged look. I embellished with punched borders, stitching, and buttons.

Also wanted to let you know that I've posted a link to all the Skipping Stones Design Hope for Haiti E-Bay auctions over on the right sidebar of my blog. Remember, 100% of the proceeds from these sales goes directly to the Red Cross to help with Haitian Relief efforts.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - thanks!
