Sorry it’s been a couple weeks, ok maybe longer…… I went to Orlando to attend the Stampin’ Up! ON Stage get together that SU! Demo’s attend. I had such a great time! It was great rooming with my ‘SU! Besties’ (my girl friends and I only meet up at SU! functions) and learning/seeing all the new things coming out in January!! I then spent a week with my Husband in Orlando for our 30th Anniversary! The bummer is that I got sick the day after he got there. 🙁 I am STILL sick, and it’s been a MONTH! Hence the reason why I haven’t been posting!
The card I am sharing with you today is from a stamp (Amazing Life) that we got for FREE while at OnStage! I came up with this all on my own!! I LOVE making my own designs, but time allowances don’t always make it to where I can do it.
I used this stamp from the set:
Doesn’t look like much right?
Well, I stamped it along the bottom with the two swirls going down, in Soft Suede ink. Repeated it along the bottom, lining up the swirls so they touched, then flipped the stamp over and lined up the two lines that are in the middle of the stamp. I repeated this on top of the ones I stamped along the bottom and then flipped the stamp so the swirls were on the bottom again, and started all over to make a pattern!
After making the pattern, I stamped the 3 dot stamp in Petal Pink between the stamped pattern. Don’t you LOVE how it came out!? I was so tickled to see the beautiful pattern that this stamp made!! If you watch the video I made you can see how It was done, if this doesn’t make sense. I used other stamps for other designs, so be sure and check it out!
Here are the particulars for this card:
|Petal Pink 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3/4″ x 3 7/8″, scrap
