This photo doesn't do my card justice....it's soooo much prettier in real life! We'll be making this card tomorrow at my Oshkosh classes (call or email if you'd like to come - WINK WINK ; - )
I used the NEW Strength & Hope stamp set - available May 1st in the Summer Mini Catalog.
As part of the Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the Strength & Hope Campaign.
Throughout the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog sales period, Stampin' Up! will donate $2* from the sale of each Strength & Hope set and Strength & Hope digital kit to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
This card uses an elegant DOUBLE EMBOSSING technique - here's a sample before I sponged on the Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy & Soft Suede ink. I stamped my images one at a time with VersaMark Ink on Glossy White cardstock. Then dust little portions of the image with gold embossing powder...tap that off. Now pour on your second color of embossing powder (I used silver). The silver will only stick to where the gold "isn't" and then heat set. Sponge on your ink colors....WAAA LAAA!!!!
In other news....my sister had her baby on Saturday. It was a crazy ordeal!!! She got to the hospital in an ambulance with only 1 minute before Jasmin made her entrance - delivered by an EMT!!! Here's my newest neice - it's amazing how alert a newborn is when they aren't all drugged up:
Thanks for stopping by....
