I LOVE SHABBY CHIC....


I quickly decided that my favorite Saleabration set is Sweet Summer and I sorta overlooked this Bliss set.....but once I started to play with it, it's a close 2nd for me....I totally LOVE that big stamp I used as background here. :) SWEET!! So last week I felt like I cheated because when I got my card all done which was supposed to feature a wheel, you could hardly even SEE the wheel. Well this time, I am suffering MAJOR guilt - look at those pearl stick pins I stuck in there on my card that was made especially for the SU ONLY blog.....yikes- I blew it again!! CONTRABAND! Sorry everyone!! But anyway, it's not really such a big deal. I say get over it. Next time I'll do better. :) I still like this card. :) CONTRABAND OR NO CONTRABAND. It wouldn't be an issue except that I made it for the SUO CHALLENGE BLOG....duh. oh well, isn't perfection wonderful???? Happy Stamping everyone!!

WHEEL YOU PLEASE BE SERIOUS????


I am here to tell ya, I used a wheel on this card. After all, the CHALLENGE for our SUO blog was to USE A WHEEL. And I used a wheel! I started out with vanilla cardstock and I ran the vintage wheel all over it with versamark ink. Then I colored it softly using the pastels. Then I stamped some images from Nature Walk right on top of the softly colored Vintage wheel images using black stazon ink. Then I stamped the bird on a piece of cardstock vellum and colored him with SU markers from behind. Then I adhered the bird onto my vintage background, and it looked pretty awesome with the images and vintage wheel showing thru the vellum, and then I stamped a few bees on top of that....so when you see this card in person, alot is going on but it's all good. Except in the PICTURE, you can't see the vintage wheel very well. Which was the whole bloomin' POINT. But honestly, I did use a wheel on my card. I really did, you just have to believe me. It's there. Look closer. It really is, I mean it, seriously, it's there. Happy Stamping everyone!! Until next time......
