Embrace Life

I've been fighting a nasty case of bronchitis since last Monday and I thought I was past the worst of it.......wrong! Sat night I was wrapped up in blankets and drinking NyQuil by the gallon. And sure enough, on Sunday night laryngitis had set in and I am currently speechless. *lol* My husband is enjoying it while it lasts. ;) So I thought I would share some of my last class projects.
Embrace Life was the featured set for my Stamp of the Month class. Everyone seems to love these classes because they get to keep the stamp set at the end of the class. This set is quite versatile and can be made fancy or simple for a birthday or sympathy card. I love when you can use one set for multiple occasions. :)

I used River Rock as the card base and Blush Blossom for the card front. I stamped the bamboo image with bleach randomly on the front. Next, I punched a large oval from the blush card front and then layerd it onto the River Rock and added a small oval punchout with a greeting. The blossom image was stamped on watercolor paper using Staz-on black and I then used my aquapainters and inkpads to watercolor the image. I got these gorgeous antique copper brads from the Pretties Boutique and they are a perfect fit for this color combo.

If you haven't shopped over there lately, now is a good time. There is a Pretties Moving Sale going on right now and prices are down to wholesale cost because there just won't be room for everything in the new place! And while you're over there be sure to check out this gorgeous new spring ribbon from American Crafts.....spring is just around the corner!!!
