Wishing you Happiness

Sorry if I've been MIA~ we took a long weekend to visit with family and then last night was my Open House to celebrate the release of the New (so fabulous) Catalog. We got to snack, chat, craft, listen to music, check out the new book - such fun!! I had to make sure I didn't overwhelm any potential new stampers, so this was a pretty simple card to kreate~ not a whole lot of 'fluff'. The base is a new In Color, Riding Hood Red, and my butterfly from Dreams du Jour is inked in Riding Hood Red as well and randomly stamped on the top half of my card. My sentiment across the bottom is from Heard from the Heart set and again inked in Riding Hood Red. I then took a piece of Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (DSP) and my Scallop Edge Punch to dress up the bottom of this beautiful paper. Using White Grosgrain Ribbon I tied a stay put bow. The final 'accessory' to this card is a Scallop Circle punched out in Pink Pirouette and set on dimensionals. The 'Love You' stamp from Dreams du Jour was inked with Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke Markers and stamped on Whisper White. TIP: You can directly ink up your stamps using markers to get a variety of colors on one stamp or even to omit something (ie: text or design), making the stamp more versatile. After inking with markers, huff to remoisten and stamp. This image was snipped out with my Paper Snips and also mounted with dimensionals onto the Pink Pirouette Scallop Circle for that 3-D effect. My virtual card to all my readers... wishing you happiness today and always! Thanks for stopping by

For now, go kreate

So pretty... especially because it's in my favorite color. RED!

I love the piece of Bella Rose DSP - it really pops.
