with appreciation.



Hello and Happy Sunday!

So, I decided to play along with the gals over at



This is my first version.

I tend to look at my cards with 'new eyes' after I've uploaded them into my blog post.


I decided to tweak it a smidge:



Much Beh-tah.

So here's the scoop on this card:

1.  I put the card base together using the paper pad from my Studio Calico Card kit.

2.  I did my stamping with the WPlus9 Folk Art Florals.  I didn't like the overlaying of the green on the red blooms so I ended up stamping those on separate chevron paper, fussy cutting and laying them directly on top of the original stamping.

3.  I die cut the WPlus9 Written on Ribbon using vellum.  I stamped everything with Memento Tuxedo.

4.  I wanted that die cut popped up so I strategically put the Freckled Fawn Dew Drops to cover the foam dots that you can see through the vellum.

5.  I realized I had wanted to stitch the chevron panel and the aqua sides but had already adhered it to the card base.  Those zig zags are SRM stickers, love them.

Here's to a magnificent week!

  11. Beautiful design, Amy! I do the same thing when I'm processing my pics. Then I have to go back and try to undo stuff without ruining the card.
