You got it, Liz. I used the fox legs for the stripes, turning them 180 each time I stamped.

The little bit of Petal Pink organdy striped ribbon and a few dimensionals give this card the perfect amount of texture while keeping it easy to mail. Continue reading

Yes, Mary Lynn. I embossed the teacup and then used the Blends. I don't recommend going over the embossing any more than necessary. Though there is no such recommendation that I am aware of for the Blends, I know that other alcohol marker tips can be damaged by coloring over colored embossing (I was taught this in a certification class.) and that they recommend if you are going to do it you would want to clear emboss. Thus my decision to play it safe with clear embossing in order to get my resist look.

Hi Kathleen, Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. This card is what is referred to as an Eclipse card. 1. I stamped the branch like image onto the oval. 2. Then I used my cross die to cut the cross out of the stamped oval. 3. Cut 2-4 more crosses out of a complementary colored cardstockr. You will only need a few if the paper is thick and more if your paper is thin. 4. Adhere the extra crosses to the back of the first cross that you cut out of the stamped oval. 5. Adhere the oval and any extra layers (the scalloped oval)to your card base, in this casse with the Country floral layer already attached. 6. Adhere the stacked cross back in the place you cut it out of. I hope that makes sense. I really appreciate your question. Maybe it will help me be clearer the next time. Let me know if you need more help.

Thank you, Karen and thank you for the question! I used my aquapainter and ink pad covers to do the watercolor. I haven't had problems with mine and I'm sorry to hear you've been having trouble with yours. Maybe Stampin' Up! has some suggestions.

Doesn't it look rather familiar? I love to use vertical borders on my cards, often with a little lace. I decided to make it a little more challenging by not using lace for a change. Continue reading
