Always Thinking of You

Okay, so I changed my mind and posted a card today. SURPRISE! I had to do some cards for a swap I'm in Tuesday so I sat in Burger King today and stamped away while Bethany played! We both win!

Stamp Set: Always, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Basic Gray, Bordering Blue
Paper: Basic Gray, Bordering Blue, Whisper White, Prestwick DSP
Accessories: Large Oval Punch

I really like this card, but I think it is missing something. Any ideas? I just keep thinking it is a sympathy card so I can't add glitter.......


Just a fun fact that I thought I would post because I haven't posted much this past week. My stamp studio has been under construction this past week and is finally coming together. It will be back up for Hostess Club on Sunday!

I will be back with cards next week! Planning my Christmas Card Crank Cards so I have been stamping but can't show you yet :o)~

Faux Alligator Instructions

I've had a couple of people ask for the instuctions for the faux alligator card found here. So here are the insturctions that were shared at the last stamp share I went to.

Supplies needed:
Cardstock: whatever size and color you would like (I used black)
VersaMark Pad
Bone Folder
Embossing Powder (I used black)
Heat tool

1. Stamp VersaMark direct to paper all over the entire area you want to look like alligator skin
2. Cover entire area with Embossing powder.
3. Using your bone folder, draw squiggly lines diagonally across your entire cardstock area.
4. Now turn your paper and draw squiggly lines across the opposite diagonal. (This will pull embossing powder off of your cardstock)
5. Using your heat tool, Emboss entire area.
6. VIOLA.....faux alligator.

It is super easy, but if I didn't explain it well enough, please email me or post another comment and I will try to explain it better.

Thank you for your sweet comments!
