In My Thoughts Card
Cut and scored the card stock base of Stampin Up Crumb Cake. Embossed a piece of Crumb Cake using the We R Memory Keepers Woven embossing folder. Trimmed the embossed piece to size for the card front. Set these aside.
For the floral piece -- this stamp set is Gift of Love from Stampin Up and it is a Hostess stamp set. You can buy this stamp set if you are a Hostess or make a $150.00 purchase or have a $150.00 party. Decided to check Ebay for this set and see what their prices were -- this stamp set had just been posted to Ebay for a great price and best yet? It was brand new. So I bought my copy off Ebay and it just arrived this week so wanted to make a card right away using it.
Used the MISTI and stamped the first stamp (outline) with black ink. Then stamped over that using the Pink Pirouette ink from Stampin Up. Used a rectangle die set to make the "frame" around the floral piece. Trimmed the floral piece to the size I needed and put the pink frame on that using the ATG. Added glitter to the pink flowers using a clear Wink of Stella pen. Set this aside.
For the greeting I used the Stampin Up stamp set A Dozen Thoughts (new to me from a yard sale) and stamped my greeting on scrap white card stock using black ink. Used a Spellbinders tag die set to cut that out in the Cuttlebug. Pink and white twine is from the stash. Tied the twine on the ends of the greeting tag and ran the ends of the twine behind the embossed card front. Using the ATG I then put
the embossed card front onto the card base. Also used the ATG to put the floral piece on the card front. Here is a photo to show the sparkle from the Wink of Stella:
The Wink of Stella sparkles IRL and the camera does not capture that well. This was an easy card to put together. TFL and YOLO
