You Light Up My Day



Playing around with some current favorites ... October Afternoon's Thrift Shop paper pack and Impression Obsession's Love Chandelier cling stamp. I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and sponged with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. The sentiment, Light up My Day, also by Impression Obsession, is stamped, cut apart, individually matted, then tucked under one of the panels. I love Joanne's sentiment treatment on this card (second one down) and wanted to give it a try. Thanks, Jo! I embellished with a Martha Stewart Deco Shells punched border, some Kaiser pearls, Hero Arts clear gems, red burlap string, an ivory button, and some machine stitching. I also added some clear glitter to portions of the stamped image. Finished size is 5 1/2" square.

Check out all the New Arrivals at Stamper's Dream ... Martha Stewart punches, tons of stamps, papers, and dies. Also, coming soon ... new Flourishes and new JustRite!

Busy evening, so I better scoot. Thanks so much for visiting!

Amy - I love your card designing! I get your undates via email so I don't often dash over but this one screamed to be commented on ! Gorgeous combo of papers, punches and embellishing... I wish I could get the stitching on my Elna to look like this...just can't get the tension right. I am kicking myself today, I just passed up this MS around the page set at Michael's yesterday! bah! lol TFS
