Happy Monday! I’m a little late with my post today, but Mallory called home this morning and it was so much to chat with her. She’s adjusting well to college life and has finally met some girls on her floor to run with. I laughed cause she did laundry yesterday, but promised me that she would bring home the clothes she wears this week. Kate is going up for a concert on Friday and will be bringing her home on Saturday morning for the holiday weekend. The only thing Mallory has asked for is her grandmother’s beef stew – and oh she does make mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm good beef stew.

If you haven’t checked out the new releases at Lizzie Anne Designs, you can find them here. There will be 8 new Little Bits™ stamp sets and 8 new Simply Singles™ released on September 10th.

I’ve been playing around with the Daisy Dots set from Lizzie Anne all weekend, and when I saw the Splitcoast Challenge this morning I knew it would be perfect. It was also still sitting on my counter. Today’s Try a New Technique Challenge is a repeat of an older one, emboss and/or versamark resist. I combined both on my card – just for the heck of it.

The solid flower image was stamped in Versamark and the flower outline was embossed with Ranger UTEE. I sponged the inks on using a damp sea sponge which also kept the embossing clear so that I didn’t have to wipe it off later. The bottom panel is a scrap of Apricot Appeal where I stamped the solid image in Versamark, the outline in the lightest ink and the sentiment in the darker ink. The card measures 4 x 7 ½.
