As you can see I've been playing with blogger. I wanted to go with a more vintage look on my site. I found a template that had old world maps at the top, like our new designer paper! How fun is that? Plus I needed a visual rest from the pink. I loved the old template (thanks, Debbi!!) but like most of us, I like to switch things up a bit now and then. Plus, I wanted to show off some of my flowers!
Here's today's card.
It's done in Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black and our Newsprint DSP. I ran the same Razzleberry through the Big Shot using the Flower Burst Embosslit and adhered them to the card for a monotone embossed look.
I tied a knot in black satin ribbon and taped it under the newsprint (which was matted with black, by the way). I put a Vintage Trinket (safety pin) through the knot and tied Victorian lace around an arm of the pin. I stamped the greeting and fleur de lis from Tiny Tags and punched them out with the mini tag punch. I put a Vintage Trinket metal button brad through the tops and used a glue dot to adhere them to the same black satin knot.
Here's a better look at the greeting. I also edged each of the tags in black to make them stand out a little more.
Not sure how I feel about this one. I got the idea for the Flower Burst in the same color from another demo but I forgot who! Thank you unnamed person! I think it might have been Chat? If I'm wrong I apologize! I'd done that technique with punched items but for some reason forgot to try it with die cuts!
My vertigo seems to have left me for the time being, thank God. I was careening into conversations all day long yesterday. I told someone it's kind of like the Blue Angels when they roll their planes. That's what it feels like. Erp! At any rate, it's left me. Yippee!
Remember, if you want to book a party, now is the time. During the month of August SU will have extra benefits for hostesses. I'll post more on my blog and website soon. With all the great items in the new catalog it's easy to come up with a wish list, isn't it?
Also remember that outside orders boost your total tremendously. Pass your catalog around! Need a catalog? I have three or four left.
Take care and we'll see you soon!
Much love and joy,
