I have a long post in the works, but wanted to jump in quickly for two reasons.
One: It is a very special person's birthday: Tami Hartley. This girl is a dear angel. Adore her and so happy to work with her and call her a friend. If you have a chance, go leave a birthday message over on the Hero Arts Blog – she is leading it this week. Love ya, Tami!
Next, Ken and Colin went flying tonight. And what is a girl to do with a quiet house all alone? Stamp, of course! :) I never take time to create for fun. But I needed a card for a friend. Also, I always struggle with color combos. Kristina Werner shared a great one this week – very inspiring. So, here it is…
Supplies: 2Peas digital greeting (by Kristina Werner), Hero Arts stuff (stamp, white embossing powder, flowers, buttons, pearls, notecard), October Afternoon paper (teal floral), Bo Bunny paper (teal dot), Sassafrass paper (yellow heart), Making Memories (brown dotted and ledger), Quickutz embossing folder (on notecard background – hard to see), Tim Holtz inks (Scattered Straw – for over the white embossed stamped image – and Vintage Photo to distress), Tim Holtz Foam Inking Tool, sewing machine, Corner Chomper, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
If you are looking for good color combos, check out Kristina's site. Very helpful. She does great challenges, and it was fun to play for the first time.
OK, I must enable for a bit. And I only enable for the stuff I really love…
I always am looking for Christian messages for my cards. I LOVE these from Kristina Werner – it is a digi kit. Easy to use – just open, size and print.
Run. Run fast. Don't walk. You must go buy this new 8×8 paper pack from Making Memories. It is delightful in every way. I bought two packs. Must. Get. More.
Also, the Corner Chomper. This is my new best friend. It resides on my table within reach at all times. Does big and small rounded corners through any thickness.
And! Embossing folders from Quickutz. Yes, you can use with your Cuttlebug. I am in love. Totally.
Ok… more later! Take care.
