Smiley from Good morning!  I probably wouldn’t have this post for you until later today or even tomorrow, but for some ungodly reason, I woke up . . . wide awake . . . at 4:30 this morning.  I’m sure that sometime this afternoon this is where I’ll be . . . Smiley from . . . but until then

I think I’ll show you an A2 card I made the other day with a new Penny Black stamp I picked up recently.  I also used the new Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Card Creator die templates . . . which seem to be the only way I can bring myself to make this size card anymore!  I can’t believe that this is the only size card I used to make and now I automatically cut my cardstock at 5.5” square.  Anyhoo, I needed a little thank you card and though this would fit the bill!


The base of the card was made with the Matting Basics A and B, but the top panel of the card was made with the new Fancy Ribbon Threader.  The seam binding was dyed with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.


The image is only a portion of the stamp, which I die cut/embossed with Labels Twelve.  First, the image was stamped in Distress Embossing Ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, then water colored with Tombow Markers.  After the watercolor had dried, the embossing was ironed away leaving a Faux Bleach/Batik look.

I guess that’s all I have for now . . . unless you want to come help with laundry today . . .
