Good Monday morning! I hope you had a good weekend! I had a wonderful time at Convention. Catching up with old friends and meeting new ones is always a hi-light. Alicia, Susan and I had just finished our afternoon training on the last day. They spotted Sara Douglas and said “let’s get a picture with her”, I said okay and quickly pulled out my cell phone. Of course she said yes and we all grouped together. Well, I’m not the best at taking a quick selfie, so after a few seconds of “hold on just a moment” she kindly said how about I take it, of course I said yes and she had this cute shot of us in a mere few seconds. Thank you so much Sara!!!
Today’s card was one of my general swaps at convention. I hope that whoever chose this one feels like it was a good swap. I always worry that my swaps might not make it into their “favorites” stack. Well, lets get started on this design that features the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper.
CARD BASE: It is a Basic Black narrow-ish card (3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″), with the corners rounded.
FOCAL POINT: As soon as I got my hands on the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper I fell in love with it. It does have a vintage feel, and I still Ooh and Aah over it whenever I see it. Lol! I fussy cut apart the black lace sheet into strips. One strip will cover a 5-1/2″ card. The viney flowers are also strips cut from another sheet. Woohoo, these designs are on two different sheets so I didn’t have to purchase a bazillion packages of paper. Don’t get me wrong I would have enjoyed designing with the other sheets, but I don’t have to. There were bitty 1/4″-ish strips left over with single flowers that I saved and will find “something” to incorporate them into. Lol! I couldn’t get it to show very will, but I put just a smidge of Silver Sparkles Dazzling Details on each flower to give a bit of sparkle. It just finished it perfectly.
SENTIMENT: The sentiment Hello Sweet Friend is from the “Six-Sided Sampler” Stamp Set stamped with Smoky Slate ink onto Very Vanilla and punched with the Large Oval Punch.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Monday and remember to stamp your stress away.
