Back from vacation. It was too short, but we had a great time in Florida. We had a bad storm at our home while we were away. Golf ball size hail fell and covered the lawn. I am going to add some photos of my front porch plants which were damaged in another post. We are grateful that we didn't have a lot of damage A family in our church had all their windows broken out of their home. Trees were down in our neighborhood and electricity was out a little while, cars dinged and I am sure a lot of roof damage from the hail. We still haven't seen the damage on our roof. We came in town and then turned around and went back out for my husband's job. I am hoping he can climb the ladder and look at it this weekend.
Now on the card for today! I made this one for my VC Rocks hotel roomie. VC Rocks is a virtual convention for Stampin' Up! enthusiasts every summer. This is my third year on VC Rocks Yahoo group and first for the virtual hotel. We send two cards and then a box of goodies. It has been fun getting to know my virtual "roomie".
Stamp Sets used: Upsy Daisy and Teeny Tiny Wishes (new in the upcoming catalog!)
Cardstock used: Whisper White, Cameo Coral
Ink used: Cameo Coral and Versamark
Accessories used: Organza white ribbon, Detail White embossing powder, Top Note Sizzix Die, Boho Blossoms flower punch, Modern Label punch (new in the catalog), and 1/4" circle punch
I first cut out the Top Note Sizzix Die from Cameo Coral cardstock and stamped the Upsy Daisy image in Cameo Coral Classic Ink.
Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, position the stamped image sheet just to the right and slightly up from the stamped image on the Cameo Coral Top Note.
Stamp the Upsy Daisy stamp in Versamark Ink over the Coral Cameo stamped image using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for positioning. Sprinkle Detail White embossing powder over the Versamark and tap off excess. Heat emboss with heat gun.
Using cardstock vellum die cut the Top Note. Cut around the edges where the perforated edge is. Lay that "mask" over the Cameo Coral Top Note piece. Sponge Cameo Coral around the outside edges. I love the dimension of this. You can do this on Whisper White Top Note die cut and you can sponge in other colors so it looks layered. I got the idea for the mask from Patty Bennett's blog here. She used window sheets, but I had the cardstock vellum and it works fine.
