Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week


Here's another twist to the BLACK EMBOSS RESIST technique! I used colored ink for the flowers.  I love this layout!!! You might remember it from a card I made yesterday!!!! It's so easy and I love the way the strip of paper across the front makes the images pop.

Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry and Berry Burst tulips look fabulous together! Peekaboo Peach is retiring....sniff sniff!


Here's a video tutorial showing you how to make the BLACK EMBOSS RESIST technique with colored ink:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.


  • Berry Burst 11" x 4-1/4" scored at 5-1/2" & scrap
  • Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4" & scrap 
  • Basic Black 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
  • Petal Passion DSP 1/2" x 4"

You can find the other card (shown above) I made with this technique using Designer Series Paper for my flower HERE.




A man went to the Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, to have his wedding ring cut off his hog wobbler.
According to the nurse attending the procedure, the patient's girlfriend found the ring in his pants pocket.
She didn't know he was married and she was so mad she used petroleum jelly to slip the ring on while he was asleep.
I don't know what's worse:
1. Having your girlfriend find out you're married...
2. Explaining the ring placement to your wife....OR...
3. Finding out your hog wobbler fits through your wedding ring.
Tough call… You decide.
