An Open Heart…

Did you know…

If the squirrels in my attic were raccoons, my homeowners insurance would cover the treatment and any damage done.

Because they are squirrels (considered a rodent…didn’t I say that yesterday?) the expense is on us.

Don’t you love insurance companies?  Right.

Onward and upward…

Today’s project was an experiment using a color combo and technique.

heart

Blues and greens together are one of my favorite color combinations, but today I experimented with several different third colors for this combination.

Using Summer Silhouette stamp set and an embossing technique created this soft look.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White notecard plus Pear Pizazz cardstock
  • Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Pear Pizzaz plus Memento Black
  • Stamps:  An Open Heart (sentiment), Gorgeous Grunge and Summer Silhouette
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Versamark Ink, White Embossing Powder, Linen Thread, Sponge Dauber

Digits

  • 3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard
  • Whisper White layer is 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″
  • The Pear Pizazz layer is 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″
  • Ramdomly stamp images in Versamark Ink and cover with White Embossing Powder, heat
  • The Gorgeous Grunge stamp was used to suggest the top flower is blowing away in the wind.  I love to suggest movement in my images.
  • Using sponge dauber add colors to background
  • Stamp image
  • Add Linen Thread to lower half of card front
  • Layer over the Pear Pizazz layer and then to card front.
  • Inside I have the one flower (shown at top left) embossed and sponged around just a little
  • You could also add to your envelope
  • Don’t forget your personalized stamp on the back of your card.

Playing around I have created several other color combinations and embossed images.  This is a fast and impressive technique…I hope you will give it a try.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
