Have a pen, paper and your favorite beverage close by. You're gonna be thrilled with what you see!
As a kid growing up my parents had numerous close friends, that to this day, I still fondly call "Aunt and Uncle". There's no blood relation but it sure feels that way.
I love the fact that my life is blessed to have so many dear friends that feel like family to me. Today's card is a tribute to those special relationships and is a CASE from Sandy Mathis.
The base of the card is Whisper White and I added a second layer of white that is mounted on Dimensionals. This layer is cut 4" x 5 1/4". The new Irresistibly Yours designer paper is BEAUTIFUL and is FREE during Sale-A-Bration. I cut my piece of designer paper 1 1/2" x 5". The beauty of this new designer paper is that it's already embossed; white on white. Look what you can do!
I used Wisteria Wonder and Blackberry Bliss inks and sponged them on the designer paper. I then took a tissue and wiped off the excess which reveals this beautiful 'emboss resist' background. Easy and rewarding!
The variegated flowers were created by inking the image in Wisteria Wonder then sponging on a LITTLE Blackberry Bliss ink. Remember, Blackberry Bliss is a strong color so sponge randomly and lightly. Then stamp your cardstock. Pretty, huh?
The new Painted Petals stamp set is a MUST in my book. I will recommend that you purchase it in Photopolymer so that the petals and stems are easy to align. The stamp set includes both images and greetings.
Happy "Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration RELEASE DAY"!
