Wednesday

deepest sympathy CPS

Whew! What a week! :) Only two more days until Very Square and Very Square Sentiments will be available for purchase!!! :) So, until then, projects will keep coming! :) Today’s card is based on this week’s CPS sketch. I stamped the background image several times on a strip of grey cardstock. And then heat embossed them with clear powder. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. Yes, it bleeds a little, but if I popped it into the freezer first and made the gun very hot, it worked out better.

Here is a little close up shot of the background images. This image can be lined up, to create one continuous background. You have to be a bit careful or use a stamp positioner, but even with a little space between them, it works! :)

Today’s Mint Motif Sightings:

The oh-so talented, creative, and funny Teri Anderson has a project, or maybe two on her blog today! Can’t wait to meet them!! :)

My dear, sweet, Minnesota friend, Heidi Blankenship, has made a beautiful card to share with you today! And did she show off using Spellbinders with the images! Wow! She is awesome!

Jennifer Kinney is a new and wonderful friend who lives in our new town. We met when I first moved here. She has been so helpful and kind AND she is a fantastic paper crafter!! She made some lovely cards and posted them on her blog.

Design team members, Julie Overby and Geny Cassady also have a couple of projects for you! You already know how great they are!

I am one blessed girl!! thanks for stopping by!
