Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Good morning and happy Thursday!

This card is white cardstock folded at top with a swatch of dull gloss colored with the edge of an ink pad. I just start at the edge and rub the paper across the ink pad in each direction until I feel it has enough color. The stripes on the purple piece of paper is created with HH28 (link below). The flower is colored with alcohol inks. Links to stamps and cutting die are below!

Good Afternoon! How on earth is it December already??!! My rescheduled knee surgery is coming up. We are getting our kitchen counters replaced the day after my surgery so we are busy getting all that ready. I still managed to find a little time to stamp- not much mind you but a little! Enjoy!

Grilling in a snow storm!!

Good Evening! Well Thanksgiving is over. It’s back to work. We had a fabulous time with good weather for travel.

I’m a little behind on blogging but I had to make a few cards. You will notice something about all the cards this week. They will all have something in common. Hope you enjoy.

I also included a picture of Kevin grilling in the snow storm we had today. It was one of those perfect snowstorms. It was beautiful.

Happy November! I thought I had better get back in the swing of things! We’ve been pretty occupied around our house. I don’t know where the time goes. My friend Heidi made some cards a while back and so I thought I would post them. She does amazing work. I hope you enjoy I got to stamp most of the day yesterday and it was so much fun. Sometimes you forget how relaxing it can be.

2021 Releases, Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers

Good Evening! I know that it has been awhile since you heard from us! We ran into the great pestilence called Covid. WE are on the mend and doing well. I do love Birthday cards that are simple. As you know, I do things in bunches. I stamped 10-15 floral bouquets and then spent an afternoon coloring them. Such fun! Now they are finding their way into cards. Pictures do not truly show how lovely this card is. I hope you are all well and having fun Stamping.

Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship

September is here! Amazing. The months and years seem to fly by. September brings knee replacement surgery to me. Little nervous but my knees were what took us off the road but of course then along came covid and changed everybody’s world.

Today’s card was made for a young friend who is moving to Michigan that I am going to miss! You might notice that I cut the flower out several times and stacked them instead of using 3-D-Dots. Love that trick.

Enjoy your first day of September! Fall is coming.

Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Hello all! For this card, I used three scallop ovals again with a patterned paper in the background. The white paper is dull gloss and here is the link – https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/dull-glossy-paper. Stamp links are below!

Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You, With Sympathy

Happy Wednesday!

Keeping it simple with this card. First, cut out three scalloped ovals of white dull gloss paper and stamp the flowers. Very important to set the ovals aside to dry before coloring. Then stamp the words on the lower portion of a 4×5.25” piece of white dull gloss. Again, important to let ink dry before coloring and assembling! The middle scallop oval is popped up with a 3D dot. Links are below!
