Hi Friends!

This weekend zoooooooooooomed past!   I woke up a minute ago and it was Saturday! LOL.   I did accomplish a lot of things on my ‘to do’ list this weekend.   I got some much needed housework/yardwork done.   I did a biblical shopping trip.   I think the poor girl checking us out thought we had eight kids.   I made two large meals (DH doesn’t get much homecooking, being over in Vail all week).   I even did some baking!

For today’s Technique Lovers Challenge, we are doing vellum embossing.   I know you all must think I have stock in vellum, but I am about to run out, so these vellum challenges may be coming to an end soon… heehee.   I also needed to get a Mother’s Day card made as it need to go postal to Pennsylvania by Tuesday.


For this card, I first stamped the Toile Blossoms on the bashful blue cardstock.   Then I embossed a piece of vellum for the overlay.   I did the little ribbon feature in the corner with my ribbon slot punch.   Then I layered on the sentiment panel.   The sentiment was computer generated and printed on vellum also.


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  Stampin’ Up!  Toile Blossoms

Colors: GP White, Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue, Vellum

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, copics

Accessories: Ribbon, Kaisercraft pearls from Sharon Johnson’s Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Label 13 nesties, circle nesties, ribbon slot punch, embossing folder, Bow easy, dimensionals.


Thanks for stopping by!   I hope you’ll drop by the challenge forums on SCS and play along!  Blessings 🙂
