I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
I was not totally
pleased with the way the radish card (see details below) turned out using the CQC109 colors so I
decided to take off the vanilla satin ribbon and front panel to salvage the
card (I will save the front panel and ribbon for another card in the
This is a basic "Clean and Simple" (CAS) card and was
extremely easy-I already had the layered embossed panels, so I added a few punched embossed squares and a bit of ribbon, stamped the Triple
Treat Flower in Pumpkin Pie and Island Indigo Classic Ink on Very Vanilla
cardstock and used the coordinating floral punches
to punch out the flowers, added a pearl for the center and viola the card is

I hope this inspires you to remember that there are no mistakes in stamping- just learning experiences :-) Experiment and have fun!!
ORIGINAL CARD SUBMITTED TO THE COLOURQ
I decided to create a
card using the colors from this week’s CQC109 ColourQ Challenge are a great combination-
love the retro feel! Again, the Design
Team and other entries look fabulous- if you have the chance, check them out!
Since I had the embossing gun out from my
last card, I decided to incorporate embossing into this card as well….
To create this card:
Ink the background stamp, Well Worn with
Soft Suede Classic Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla. De-static the Very Vanilla with the Embossing
Buddy®, stamp the radish image with Versamark® ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear
Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Use Sponge Daubers to apply Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and
Island Indigo Classic ink to the image. Gently
wipe off the embossed image, trim and spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
(mixed with 70% alcohol).
Stamp the sentiment with Island Indigo and
assemble the layers. Add the 5/8” Very
Vanilla Satin Ribbon bow and pearls to finish off the card.
This card really sparkles in real life and was a bit difficult to photograph:-) I hope you like it!
