Because I care

I have used the Level 1 hostess set "Because I Care" to make a thank you card.

I used Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz which are from the in colour range. They worked really well together. I embossed the small flowers using versamark and then embossed them using white embossing powder. Then tied a fake bow using certaily celery ribbon.

Christmas with a shine!

I've taken the ornament stamp from Stampin' Up! Contempo Christmas set which is phenomenal value at $25.95 and made it all shiny.

I've stamped my ornament first in Versamark ink & then stamped with Old Olive or Cherry Cobbler , poured on clear embossing powder & melted with a heat gun. Remember to clean between every stamp - otherwise your Versamark pad will be multi-coloured. This is a labour of love but I think the results speak for themselves - pretty!
