Hello Everyone ~ I have a feminine card for you today with my Just Because Vertical Greetings from Stampin’ Up.
I treated myself yesterday and had a pedicure. I have not had one in a long time. I went with Barb so it was nice to have some time to sit and chat with her. Afterwards we went shopping for a few things. I picked up an item I am going to use for my 12 Weeks of Christmas series and she got a new oil decanter. We made plans to meet today to work on some small treat ideas to send to the girls. I also met with the builder to get some things finalized. We got the go ahead to clear the land so that should happen in the next few weeks. After I met with him I went to the granite place to see what hey had. I started with one idea and then went in an entirely different direction when I saw a back splash I fell in love with. I have made some changes in this house. The color palette inside is gray and white and I am bringing in my color in my accessories. Anyone who knows me knows I love my color and I am not afraid of it. It has been a real struggle to keep my color palette neutral as I am missing my color. I was not happy with any of the granite I saw but then she said lets look at back splashes. I saw the perfect one for me! It was white and silver tiles so I have lots of bling! If I can’t have color you know I have to have bling. When I put the granite with the back splash and the white cabinet door, I immediately thought of little black dress and class. I just hope it looks ok. I will meet with the builder’s wife who is an interior decorator and see what she says.
I have a very feminine card for you today. The next set on the second round of my Catalog Journey was the Vertical Greetings stamp set. I opted to use the topiary with the heart at the top. I took my panel and masked off a section at the top. The area was sponged using Blushing Bride ink. I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment down the right hand side using the same ink. The image was colored with markers. I used Early Espresso for the pot, Melon Mambo for the heart, and Garden Green for the stems. This was stamped on the left hand side of the panel. I used some of the Blushing Bride reinker with alcohol and dyed the Polka Dot tulle ribbon. When it was dry I added it to the bottom of the panel. The panel was added to a Blushing Bride card base. To finish the card I tied a bow with the ribbon and added it with a glue dot. Here is the completed Just Because Vertical Greetings from Stampin’ Up creation.
