Wow...I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted. It's been a super busy time at work and as much as I'd like to be crafty instead of work....there are bills to be paid.
I was able to catch up a little today with some cards. The picture is not the greatest but I love the summertime feel of this card.
I had seen this gingham technique several months ago and finally got around to playing with it. I think it adds a perfect summer touch to this card. You simply use your stripe embossing folder, ink up the raised side with a brayer, run your paper through and repeat with the paper the opposite direction. Simple!
I also fell in love with a new stamp supplier this month - www.papertreyink.com. Can I just say "Wow!" They have a wonderful selection of clear stamps, coordinating dies, paper and inks. I'm a sucker for flip flops so when I saw this set it was a must-have.
I was so impressed with the quality of the stamps, the packaging etc. They have a linked gallery for their stamp sets to provide inspiration and a wonderful blog. I highly recommend you check them out!
