It's Been Too Long!

Hi everyone!

Once again, it's been way too long since I've posted. Two weeks this time. It's not because I haven't been creating because I have! It's just that I can't share anything with you yet.

I do have a card to show you today. It uses the Lots of Stars stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I saw Shari Carroll use these colors awhile back and thought they were so pretty together!


After stamping various sizes of stars in the peach and gray inks, I added an open star image to each one and white embossed them. I purposely added the white embossing powder before the colored inks had dried completely so there would be a "snowy effect" on each star. I then added a bit of splatter to the entire panel. Here's a close-up.


I also added a bit of shimmer to the larger stars with a Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. It looks much better in real, I promise. The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp - from their Flower Friend set.

That's it for me tonight but please stop back on Friday for a really fun post. I'm so excited about it I can hardly stand it! I can't wait to share what I've been working on with you!

Hope you week is going well! Thank you for your visits and comments! I appreciate them so much!

Barb, I LOVE this card! Fabulous design, great colours, and I really love the effect you created with the embossing while the ink was still wet. Cool! Pinning, and very likely to CASE sometime very soon. ;-)
