Crazy About You - You Rock


Today I'm happy to take part in another Global Design Project challenge! This week it is another beautiful sketch by Teneale Willams - Sketch Challenge #034!

This card will go to one of my long time customers! Her orders are delivered directly to her house and I don't always get to thank her with a card!

I had sooo much fun with this card!

Teneale's inspiration.

The retiring Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder adds sparkle to my main sentiment. What will I do without it?!

My Product List

Hints & Things

  • I die cut the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits die from craft foam and used this as my stamp. I adhered the foam piece with a removable adhesive onto a stampin' block.The heart was heat embossed with White Stampin'  Emboss Powder. 
  • To finish my background I used a broad flat brush to paint over the embossed heart. For this I used Pacific Point and Bemuda Bay ink. I also splattered with Rich Razzleberry over the back ground.
  • Before I die cut the Thanks thinlit, I painted a piece of Watercolor Paper with Rich Razzleberry, and although not very visible, I also added Bemuda Bay in the mix! I always layer up on my intricate dies to make them more sturdy.
  • To anchor my greeting, I used as always... Vellum! Gotta love the stuff!
I wish you all the best for the rest of the week!

Take care!
