Wow – it has been a loooong time since I’ve blogged. Hoping to get a tour/reveal of my updated stamp studio photographed and posted soon, but in the meantime I’m very happy to play along with the TE Release and the Creative Team this month. There are so many great products in this release! I think my favorites might be the You’re in My Prayers and the So Very Blessed stamp sets along with the coordinating Prayers Script and Blessed Script dies. I can really see myself making LOTS of cards with these! And here is my first one!
You’re in My Prayers
Prayers Script Die
Skinny Mini Spring Borders
TE Enamel Dots – Sugar Cube
Taylored Expressions Premium Dye Ink in Peapod, Sprinkles, Cookie Monster, Lavender Glaze, Strawberry Milkshake
This card is super sparkly in person. I started with a shimmery white cardstock and stamped the background stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with a sparkly kaleidoscope embossing powder. I masked off the oval portion of the image and sponged on the TE inks listed above.
I used a Stamp-a-majig (yep, I’m old fashioned like that) to line up the words I wanted to use for this sentiment (there are several options for different combos in the stamp set). Then I adhered the die cut word “prayers” and the line of birds (cut from the new Skinny Mini Border die set). I wanted even more sparkle so I painted both die cuts with a Wink of Stella pen. One last finishing touch with a few of the brand new TE Enamel Dots. This Bloomin’ Background is another favorite from this release. Did you see it earlier this week and some of the amazing coloring the girls on the team showed? Seriously WOW!
This card is being sent off in the mail today to a sweet friend in the midst of a battle.
