Well it's been a hectic weekend for sure followed by another busy day today. I see the Blog hogger has been here! I wonder should I change my password? Hummm! Have to think that through for sure!
I found out she had hi-jacked my blog on Sunday while at the hospital with my mother in law! Her birthday was on Saturday and I invited her and her friend to dinner at my place. We tried to have a lovely lunch but unfortunately she was sick ( no I didn't give her food poisoning) I had tried on Friday to get her to go to out patients but she said she didn't feel that ill. Anyway on Sunday I managed to persuade her to go. I was sitting in the waiting room at Out Patients and not being a patient person (lol) I had brought my Kindle. I am able to check out the web on my Kindle and I decided to check into my blog. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Colleen had posted once again! I laughed out loud in the very quiet room! Yep, people looked at me strangely. So three days in a row huh? Well I suppose it was a good thing in the long run as I was busy with a sick MIL. So thanks I think!
Today I am making some soup to take down to her but I did find time to make a photo tutorial for you today. Want to see? Ok here you go.
I used Island Indigo for my card stock, Hello Doily, Vintage Vogue and Perfect Punches for my stamps. I also used Old Olive, and Calypso Coral card stock. The punches were the wide Oval and Large Bird Punch.
First I rubbed the embossing buddy over the card stock and then I inked up the stamp with Versamark Ink, I then placed the card on the stamp and put a piece of scrap paper over the top and pressed down with my hand to get a good image. I then poured White Embossing Powder over the image.
After I poured the embossing powder over the image I made sure there was no stray embossing powder on the card and then I heat set the image using the Heat Tool.
Now for the embellishments. I had the Perfect Punches stamp set on my desk so I decided to go with the Birthday stamp. You can never have too many Birthday Cards. I stamped that in Basic Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White. I was going to use the Scallop Oval punch to frame my sentiment but scrapped that and used the Wide Oval punch instead.
I punched out some leaves using Old Olive and I cheated because I had this flower in my UFO case and rather than make a new one I decided that it worked. hahaha. To make this flower I punched the large image from Vintage Vogue on Whisper White twice and the smaller flower once. Then I cut them out and sponged the edges with Island Indigo ink. I assembled the flower using dimensionals. I added a jewel and now I am ready to make the focal image.
This is the back of the sentiment. I used a scrap of Bashful Blue Satin ribbon and then I glued the two Calypso Coral ovals to the sentiment and started placing the leaves that I had punched out.
When I got it all put together I used Dimensionals to place it on the card. I added the Flower and a couple more leaves. I like the look.
So that's it for today everyone! I am on a soup run! So Soupy Hugs! Oh and thanks Colleen for all your input. I have decided not to change the password. :O)
