The Craft's Meow... Just for You
Hello everyone! I'm excited to be Guest Designing for my dear friend and SSIC sister, Lisa Hjulberg, who has recently opened a new on line store, and it is so fun! It's called the Craft's Meow and she carries wonderful stamps, many of which are exclusive to her store, as well as fantastic kits! You have simply GOT to check out the line up of talent she has working for her as well! Today I'm sharing a set designed by the talented Nina Brackett called Simply Delightful. There are lots of great images and sentiments in the set but I decided to focus on this one image which I stamped three times. First I stamped on the Webster's Pages dp first in VersaMark, then Old Olive, and clear embossed. Then I stamped on a scrap of white cs with VersaMark and then Groovy Guava, and again clear embossed. Thirdly I stamped in VersaMark and then Black and clear embossed that. I was trying to mimic the pattern in my Websters Pages (Lullaby Lane/Life's Portrait pack) dp. I cut out the guava and black deisgn and popped each layer up on the green base. I also stamped the sentiment with Black in the lower right corner. I matted with basic black, and used two Spellbinder's Fancy Tags Two which I then cut in half and mounted to the back of the corners of my image panel. I popped that layer up on the patterned paper and added a May Arts Silk bow and one single pearl. I think the picture below shows the embossing a little better.
I love this set and see myself using it often! I hope you enjoyed my project and will stop back as I have another set of cards made with this set to share with you soon!
