Good Afternoon Everyone,
I am glad to say that my family is not happily on an Alaskan Cruise for 7 whole days! Please don’t misunderstand me though. I love my family (my two aunts and uncles), but I’m used to living in a quiet home……and my family is LOUD… So I haven’t had as much sleep as I would like since they have been early risers (they’re from Ontario and it’s 3hrs ahead..so they were adjusting) and I’ve been sleeping late..hence I turn into a bit of a cranky pants… LOL
Anywho..on with my crafting projects! I choose Stampin’ 411 Card Sketch today:
I actually thought about this sketch for a couple of days and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do…Then this morning I remembered that I needed a Thank You card for one of my friends 🙂 and since I’m really loving the whole vintage stamp sets……..
and so here it is! 🙂 It actually turned out better than I thought and I’m really liking it 🙂 You know how sometimes cards JUST don’t turn out the way you want it??? NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO TO IT? LOL It took me a few tries to figure out what I wanted for the focal image… but I finally figured it out! yah!
using dimensionals really adds some …DIMENSION LOL to the card and it gives the card more life
As you can see I also embossed the background to give it more texture, as well, I daubered (used my sponge dauber and stampin’ pastels) the paper to add come color, which brings out the embossed imaged more.
I love this flower from vintage vogue stampset and use it at EVERY opportunity! lol
