Here is a card I would like to share with you too. The challenge on Splitcoast was to use the negative, so that is what I did.

I just got this new background stamp from Rubbernecker It is the poem, 'Twas the night before Christmas. I love it!

I inked it with Festive Berries distress ink and stamped it onto white card stock, embossing with clear so it would stand out a bit more. The red paper is cut using a nested pine tree die I then added the silver trim as if it is trimming the tree. The red panel is popped up over the background. I added the silver domes to the corners for just a bit more shine.

I hope you like it! Thanks for looking.

Thinking Happy Thoughts

For this card I used a chrysanthemum image from Rubbernecker. I inked the stamp with versamark and then rich razzleberry, stamped it onto the So Saffron square and embossed with clear ep before adding a bit of the more mustard and rich razzleberry inks with a little water. That is die cut/embossed. The card front is Rich Razzleberry. Since I didn't have chevrons, I substituted panels embossed with a zig zag pattern above and below the main panel. Not quite the same, but . . . it is what I had. I added a More Mustard panel to the center of the card with Midnight Muse punched panels added to it. The sentiment was stamped with the midnight muse ink onto the More Mustard card stock and cut/embossed with an oval. I added some Midnight Muse accents.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Celebrating 40 years!

My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary this weekend. Sheesh, that is a long time! I can hardly  believe we are this old! The time has flown by. I made it mostly purple as that is my husband's favorite color. The 40th anniversary is ruby, so I added a few ruby rhinestones to the image panel as well.
There is lots of dimension on this card. The purple background layer has traits I love in my husband. It is computer generated, then I embossed it with Spellbinders M-bossabilities Mystic folder. I then added the Lacy Squares cut from Elegant Eggplant card stock. The Fancy Label panel is cut from glossy white card stock with the number 40 computer generated. The butterflies are stamped onto white glossy card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder before being punched out with an SU! punch. I added rhinestones and pearls to the bodies and then popped them up with foam tape, lifting the wings for more dimension.

I hope you like it! My husband did. Thanks for looking.
