thinking of you

thinking of you

Good Monday Morning!

Today I have some more My Mind’s Eye Stella and Rose loveliness. The card started out with the flower. I used paper that came inside a package to create it. A text background was stamped in black ink upon it. Then several blossoms were die cut from the paper. The edges were inked and then all tied together with twine and fastened with the button. The leaves were die cut using Spellbinders new die set, Foliage. I stamped cardstock with a background, inked the paper, and then die cut.

Thank you for all your input and suggestions for posting my directions! They were all so thoughtful and gave me things to think about. Seems like, for the most part, the ways things are currently is pretty good. Yay for that! :)

Congrats to the winner of the blog candy:

I like the narrative just fine. The only time step-by-step instructions in a list format might be helpful is if you're showing us something complicated or brand new that most of us won't have seen before.
