Pyrex Pile Up…

Do you remember your mother or grandmother’s Pyrex or Corningware ovenware?  That’s what the bowls in the stamp set Fruit Basket reminded me of…

Now I know the Corningware was blue and white, but the Pyrex bowls were in happy colors so that’s what was used here.

A wonkie little border seemed perfect.

Here are the inks used.

and a peek inside…

Lots of memories using these bowls in another time, so this card could be called retro.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards and Lemon Lime Twist and Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Lemon Lime Twist, Pumpkin Pie and Going Grey
  • Stamps:  Fruit Basket
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Blender Pen, .005 Black Micron Pen, Post It Note or Masking Paper


  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4-7/8″ x 3-3/8″ attached to notecard with SNAIL.
  • The Top Thick Whisper White layer is 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″. Mark a light pencil line around the edge to create a 1/4″ border.
  • Stamp bottom bowl in Tempting Turquoise.  Overstamp bowl with same ink using outline bowl stamp. Make a mask by stamping on Post It Note or Masking Paper and fussy cutting.  Cover Turquoise bowl with mask and stamp Lemon Lime Twist bowl at angle.  Stamp in same ink color with outline bowl stamp.
  • Remove mask from Turquoise bowl and cover Lemon Lime Twist bowl then stamp Pumpkin Pie bowl.  Overstamp Pumpkin Pie bowl with same color and bowl outline stamp.
  • Remove mask.
  • Make a curvy line around border following light pencil line.  Add three circles at each corner.  Add three dots each side of border randomly.  Erase pencil line.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.
  • Stamp one bowl inside lower right corner.
  • Add stamped layer to card front with SNAIL.
  • You could add a bowl to the envelope to coordinate with the card front.

These bowls make me happy…lots of fun memories in the kitchen.

If you are reading this, it’s Friday afternoon and I am well on my way to Florida.  I will post again next week.  Plan to enjoy Christmas to the fullest with my family.  I hope you will be doing the same.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

by this time I’m sure it is!

Come get inky with me and be HaPpY!


Holiday Thanks…

There will be many thanks posted for kindnesses shown during the holiday.  Creating cards for that purpose has been on my mind and creative table lately.

If you also need this type of card, here’s an idea for you…

Wowzers!  Those colors are bright and cheery.

I love seam binding ribbon!

All kinds of texture going on in the background.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie
  • Stamps:  Charming Cafe’ (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Calypso Coral Seam Binding (retired), Linen Thread, Aqua Painter


  • The watercolor paper is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.  For a video showing this background being made, go to my Rambling Rose Studio Facebook page, click on video posted 12-3-17.  Sometimes just seeing t done helps.  Spritz the watercolor paper until it’s wet.  You can brush over it with an Aqua Painter or any small brush.  Add reinker color (add drops to an acrylic block or the ink pad lid and pick up with brush) with a brush and let the colors “bloom”.  Let dry.
  • Emboss the lower half of watercolor paper with Petal Pair EF.
  • Add a piece of ribbon around then fasten with SNAIL in the back.
  • Make several loops with ribbon then tie in center with Linen Thread.  Attach over ribbon band with glue dots.
  • Add watercolor piece to notecard front with Multipurpose Glue and weight down until dried.

Send your cheer-me-up note to someone on your list and make their day!

Reflective Landscape…

You may have flipped right past this little stamp set on page 48 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  This set was inspired by the Million Sales Achiever, Connie Heisey and it is a gem!

Using the new product, Brusho made this landscape appear as if it had been hand painted.

Yesterday on the Rambling Rose Studio Facebook page I demonstrated this landscape in a “live” video that is still available to see.

Only three of the Brusho color crystals were used for this landscape.

This would be an excellent sympathy card or masculine birthday card too.  Later this week there will be another landscape totally different from this one to show you why I think this little set is such a gem.  I’m planning my February “Inky Fingers” class around this set…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Tranquil Tide Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Waterfront
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Small Round Paint Brush, Brusho Color Crystals


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score, fold and burnish at 4-1/4″.
  • The Tranquil Tide layer is 5-1/2″ x 4″ attached to card front with SNAIL.
  • The watercolor paper is 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″.  The elements are added in layers then left to dry before adding layers over them.  So the sun was stamped with water and Yellow Color Crystals were dropped into the water.  Next was the mountain in the background added the same way using the Green Color Crystals.  Next would be the Prussian Blue mountain then the green ground (mix some yellow crystals with blue on an acrylic block with water to create this green).  Use the same mixed green for the trees.
  • Add some blue crystal to a block with water to dilute to a lighter blue and color in the sky and water areas.  Once dry add a watery sun by diluting the yellow on the stamp in the water.  Use paint brush to add reflection of sun.  Stamp trees on a piece of window sheet or plastic wrapper to stamp the reflection of the trees.  It should be much lighter than the original trees.
  • Add sentiment in Archival Basic Black.
  • Add this layer to card front with multipurpose glue and weight down until dry.

If all this sounds too much, go to the Rambling Rose Studio Facebook page and take a look at the “live” video.  Sometimes just seeing something done makes it so much easier to visualize.

I am so close to having everything ready for Christmas…good thing since we are leaving Friday to celebrate with our son and his family which includes “the littles”.

Hope you are seeing light at the end of your tunnel too.

Paris Birthday…

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be in Paris, France, for your birthday?  Outdoor cafes, the Eiffel Tower in the background…

Let’s get real.  How about a card that looks like Paris?  That I can do…

Doesn’t this remind you of an outdoor café maybe in Paris?

Can you see inside the window?

This card is a tri-fold so you can open the window and be inside the café.

How clever to create a framelit to just cut away the top portion of the table and chairs…seriously!

Paris is one place I have never been…maybe someday.  But if you’d like to take someone away on their birthday with this card, here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock plus Petal Passion Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black and Pool Party
  • Stamps:  Charming Café’
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Blends Pens for coloring stamping, Linen Thread, Calypso Coral Seam Binding (retired), Café Builder Framelits Dies, “E” Acrylic Block


  • Cut two 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ base cards.  Score, fold and burnish at 4-1/4″
  • Cover one card front with DSP cut 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ adhering with multipurpose glue.  Cut away just the center part of the floral oval from the card front center.  If you were to use both pieces you wouldn’t have a place to attach the flower piece to.
  • Stamp the floral oval on scrap Thick Whisper White and add color with Blends Pens or Markers if you’d rather.  Use both sides of the oval framelit and cut this out.  The floral pattern is the same at top and bottom so you can’t get it wrong when placing the framelit.  Add this frame to your card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Make a bow with several loops then tie off center with Linen Thread.  Attach to card front below oval and centered with glue dots.
  • Now inside this card with the oval opening using an “E” Acrylic Block and Pool Party Ink Pad, ink up on side of block. Spritz with water and smoosh it on the inside panel of the card with the oval opening.
  • Working now with the second 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Thick Whisper White piece scored at 4-1/4″.  This piece will open opposite the previous piece (from the left instead from the right).  Lay this card front inside the oval opening card and lightly mark with pencil the oval opening.
  • Using your pencil marks for placement, stamp the table and chairs.  Color with Blends Pens or Markers.  Use the very clever framelit that just cuts away the cardstock at the top of this image.
  • Stamp a couple of topiary trees on scrap Thick Whisper White, color and cut with framelit.  Add multipurpose glue to just the back of the flower pot then add to each side of chairs.
  • Add SNAIL to the inside of the table card and place it behind the back of the first card with the oval opening.
  • Add your sentiment inside the oval opening card so that it reads through the opening over the table and chairs.
  • We made it to Paris!
  • On the envelope I stamped and colored one topiary tree and covered the envelope flap with the same DSP used on the card front.

I’m in love with this card…

How are all your Christmas preparations coming?  Things are a little chaotic this week but should calm down for traveling next week to share Christmas with “the littles”.

Thanks for stopping by today.

So everyone knows now that Stampin’ Up! has added a dry color pigment to our product line.  I couldn’t be happier…Happy dance!

Page 26 of the Occasions Catalog shows using Brusho to create backgrounds…and they do that beautifully.  But today’s post shows another way to use this new product.

The Sheltering Tree stamp creates the focal point for this landscape on watercolor paper.

This close up shot shows the Clear Wink of Stella added after the colors were dry.

The colors seem to explode on the wet watercolor paper.

This medium is going to be hot.  It is so much fun to play with and the results are amazing.  Now I know the catalog shows punching holes in the container lid, but you have much more control of where the color lands if you use a small dry brush kind of like a shovel, scoop up some crystals and tap your index finger lightly on the brush handle directly over the area you want the color to be.

Probably going to do another “live” video on my facebook page to demonstrate…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this card…


  • Paper:  This Whisper White and Dapper Denim Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Early Espresso and Archival Basic Black plus Smoky Slate Marker
  • Stamps:  Sheltering Tree
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Brusho Crystal Colour Yellow, Gamboge, Prussian Blue, Moss Green, Clear Wink of Stella, Small dry brush, palette knife, Aqua Painter, Adhesive Strips


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score, fold and burnished at 5-1/2″.
  • The watercolor paper is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.
  • Stamp Sheltering Tree slightly off center.
  • With Aqua Painter filled with water wet the area where you want the leaves on the tree.  Using small dry brush and Yellow Crystals scoop colour onto brush and tap the brush handle lightly with your index finger.  Reload brush and continue adding the amount of yellow you want.  The shake the yellow crystal back into contain and close.  Repeat with the Gamboge crystals over the same area.  You can also spritz to move the colors once on the paper.  Let tree dry.  Add Clear Wink of Stella on the tree leaves.
  • Wet the sky area and repeat the dry brush technique to add Prussian Blue to sky.  This color is intense and doesn’t take as many crystals.  If you want, you can remove some color with a wadded tissue to create clouds.
  • Wet the area at the bottom leaving a dry area between ground and tree leaves.  Add Moss Green crystals.  While this is still wet, use your palette knife or the edge of a credit card and pull lines up from the wet color to create more texture that resembles grass.
  • Once the ground color is dry, use your Smoky Slate marker to add a tree trunk shadow.
  • This layer was added to the card front with Adhesive Strips.
  • The Thinking of You sentiment was stamped in Archival Basic Black on scrap Thick Whisper White, trimmed and added with SNAIL.
  • Inside there is a layer of Dapper Denim 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ with a layer of Whisper White over it 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″

Hopefully I’ll be able to get a video done with this product soon.  There will be another Brusho post this week.

Sweet Soiree…


This suite of products has every possible embellishment, and on this card I used several…did I over do it?  There’s no “over doing” when it comes to embellishments!  The more the merrier…

Oh shoot!  I forgot the sequins…(kidding)

There are several layers in this background…maybe a Sunday afternoon video?

Gold is back in the fashion world and in stamping too!

And a peek inside.

Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for this card…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Pool Party and Gold Foil Cardstock plus Vellum and Watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black and Tranquil Tide plus VersaMark
  • Stamps:  Cake Soiree
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1/8″ Gold Ribbon, Linen Thread, Sweet Cake Framelits Dies, Gold Embossing Powder, Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks, sponge dauber


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score, fold and burnish at 4-1/4″.
  • The Gold Foil layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with multipurpose glue.
  • The watercolor layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  With Tranquil Tide and Pool Party Ink Pad, cover the surface of a “F” Acrylic Block.  Spritz with water and “stamp” the watercolor paper.  Leave in place a few seconds to give the paper time to absorb the color.  Lift straight up.  Gorgeous! Right?
  • Using the rose stencil from the Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks and a sponge dauber with Tranquil Tide ink add three roses to the lower right corner.  Make the middle rose full size and tuck the other two behind the corner rose.
  • Add splats of VersaMark Ink (I used the “splat” stamp from Gorgeous Grunge set), sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder and heat.  Add rose leaves with VersaMark ink, sprinkle and heat.
  • Isn’t that a beautiful three-layer background?
  • Cut several leaves in Pool Party, Vellum, and Gold Foil.  Cut two Gold Foil and one Pool Party rose.  If you add the Self-Adhesive paper to the back of what you are cutting out, all these pieces can be peeled and laid down in a snap.
  • Cut tag from Thick Whisper White CS.  Add roses in Tranquil Tide and sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Add a small piece of Gold Foil behind the bottom portion of the tag.  Tie several loops of 1/8″ Gold Ribbon with Linen Thread and add to top of tag with glue dots.  Add tag to card front with dimensionals at top left corner.
  • Inside the Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  The Gold Foil is 1/4″ x 4-1/4″ attached with multipurpose glue.  The two roses were added by using Self Adhesive paper on back of cardstock before cutting out the images.
  • As you can see in the first photo, the envelope was stamped with the flower from the Lots of Happy Card Kit and colored with Blend Pens.  Just a little something to start the party on the envelope!

There is a lot going on with this card and I believe it works because it is basically monochromatic.  If there were several strong colors used, it just wouldn’t work a well.  I hope to do a Sunday afternoon “live” video on this background…maybe this week.  You can always check my facebook page, Rambling Rose Studio, for helpful short videos.

Winter has decided to arrive this evening…our warm weather has disappeared with lots of rain….

Are you planning to reserve a Stamping Up! Stamparatus today at 2 p.m. MT?  I will be in line as I was unsuccessful last time.  You can shop from here by clicking on the “Shop Now” button.

A Panda Hello…

It won’t be long before Sale-A-Bration begins…January 3rd!  And this sweet little stamp set in today’s post can be yours FREE!

The day this set was presented in Salt Lake City two card ideas immediately popped into my mind and both will be spotlighted here this week.  Here’s today’s spotlight…

Did I hear a collective awwww?  Isn’t he the cutest?

The stamp actually has a balloon attached to his paw, but I cut that off.  Yikes you say?  You can always replace it on an Acrylic Block.

Did you notice the envelope in the first pic?

And the second thing that this set brought to mind at first sight is Lyla, my g’daughter.  She loves animals and stuffed animals and these pandas are right up her alley.

So today’s card will be flying to her house tomorrow because she loves getting snail mail.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this notecard…


  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard, Lemon Lime Twist and Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide
  • Stamps:  Panda Party
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Card Front Builder Framelits (to make fun foam stamp for trees), .005 Black Micron Pen, fun foam


  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-7/8″ attached to notecard with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White CS layer is 3-1/8″ x 4-5/8″.  Cut away the balloon and string from the stamp.  If you can’t bring yourself to do that (it’s a tool!) then try coloring the stamp with the Black Marker.  Placement is in lower left corner.  Cut a mask of the panda and cover stamped image.
  • Use the tree framelits from Card Front Builder Framelits and cut two fun foam trees for each then glue together with multipurpose glue.  If you add a tad of glue to the side that will attach to acrylic block, they will stick just fine.  Ink with Lemon Lime Twist and “edge” ink with Tranquil Tide.  Spritz a couple of times with water and stamp with mask in place.  Let dry and remove mask.  Magic!!!

  • The “hello” sentiment came from a Paper Pumpkin stamped in Archival Basic Black.
  • Draw a border lightly in pencil then doodle two overlapping squiggly lines around border skipping where stamping gets in your path.
  • Add this layer to card front with SNAIL.
  • You can see in the photo the stamping was repeated on the envelope…I just know Lyla will love this!

Later this week there will be a line of dancing pandas that will warm your heart.

Hope you enjoyed this sweet card.

Yesterday I did a “live” video demonstration on my facebook page Rambling Rose Studio if you missed it, it’s still there.

Hope your Monday is awesome…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

I especially like #1 and #7…

Come get inky with me…Be HaPpY!





Be HaPpY…

Everyday this mantra is sent to you along with the suggestion that inky fingers will make you HaPpY.  And it’s true!  Better than any antidepressant on the market I always say.

You can only imagine my delight when first seeing this new stamp set…

And that’s not all either.  This set comes in two boxes with all kinds of sentiments to go with “happy” and “best”…genius!

To introduce this set on my blog for the first time these two “happy” cards were made for you…

Showcasing the new self-adhesive sequins…

Both notecards are watercolored, but in different ways.  This is one of my “go to” doodled borders.

Watercolored “blooms” create interest in the background.

There are five other sentiments for use with the word “happy” plus the second set is “Best” and there are eight sentiments for that set.

Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for these two HaPpY notecards…


  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards and Basic Black Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
  • Stamps:  Happy Wishes
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  .005 Black Micron Pen (doodled border), self-adhesive sequins, Blends Pens, Low Tack Artist Tape, Aqua Painter or Medium Round Brush, VersaMark, Black Embossing Powder


  • The Basic Black CS layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-7/8″ attached to Whisper White Notecard with SNAIL.
  • The water color paper is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.  Make a 1/4″ border with low tack tape on one piece of water color paper.  Wet the exposed surface with spritzer or brush.  I used watercolor (Ultramarine Blue) and just touched the wet paper with a brush loaded with color and let it bloom.  Start light, you can always add more color.  To removed color use a scrunched up tissue and blot.  Let dry.
  • For the other card I use applied a light coat of Daffodil Delight reinker using the Aqua Painter and let it dry.
  • Remove the tape and stamp sentiment in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with black Embossing Powder and heat.  This was done on blue card only.  The flowers were colored with Blends Pens.
  • Attach to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • For the yellow background card once dry, lightly draw a line where you want your border.  Draw two squiggly black lines over the pencil.  Add three dots evenly spaced.  See?  I knew you could do it!  Use a soft eraser to eliminate pencil lines.
  • The sentiment on this card was stamped in Archival Basic Black and the flowers were colored with Blends Pens.
  • Add those self-adhesive sequins and you are done.

There is one sentiment in the “happy” set that reads “you make me so”.  These would make great thank you cards for use after the holidays.

Are you running here and there, cleaning house and cooking in preparation for Christmas?  Does you mind keep running in high gear when you lay your head down?  Problems we all share this time of year.  Wish I had a solution because I’m right there with you.

So my BIG announcement on Monday this week was well received and I’ve been working and planning for the coming months’ online classes.  Won’t it be fun?  We get to stamp together!  It will be just like you are here in the studio with me…Oh! what fun…

We have another day in the high 60s again.  I’m loving it!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

OnStage Presentation…

The second card actually demonstrated while on stage was this one…

A little bit of spritzing the stamp after inking and the paper after stamping creates this fluid background and makes the elegant line art “pop”!

Some splattering and that Linen Bow add to the textural interest of this panel.

Layers, texture and embellishments…a good card recipe!

And a peek inside…

So if you were at OnStage Live SLC, you received this stamp set and maybe witnessed my presentation.  The sample this week will give you some ideas for your own creations.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Soft Sky Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist, Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Lovely Wishes and Music Notes background stamp
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Water Spritzer, Linen Thread


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score, fold and burnish at 5-1/2″
  • The first Soft Sky layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp Soft Sky by stamping off each time you stamp.  This will keep this layer in the background and not competing with your focal point.  Attach this layer to card front with SNAIL.
  • The next Soft Sky layer is 2-3/8″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with SNAIL.
  • The next layer is watercolor paper 2-1/4″ x 5-1/8″.  Stamp Music Notes in Soft Sky.  Ink leaf shadow stamp in Lemon Lime Twist.  Spritz stamp before stamping.  Stamp a second shadow stamp underneath first. Spritz watercolor paper to “move” the ink.  Let dry.  Stamp shadow stamps again in Lemon Lime Twist.  Add Line art stamp with Archival Basic Black.  Add color to flowers in Soft Sky.  Splatter Lemon Lime Twist using marker or Aqua Painter.
  • Add this panel to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Make bow and attach with glue dots.  There is a video here to demonstrate this bow.
  • Inside the Soft Sky layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Stamp leaf line art in Soft Sky and leaf shadow stamp in Lemon Lime Twist..  Add this layer to inside of card with SNAIL.

This was the last card demonstrated on stage.  The others were samples I had made previously and brought to show how versatile this stamp set can be.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Frost on the Pumpkin…

What is it about pumpkins?  And the pumpkin patch where there are hundreds to pick from but you always find just the right ones.

We should ask Charlie Brown…

Here’s my little pumpkin patch card for today…

These two are just right!

A glamour close up…

Lots of layers and texture.

And a peek inside.

These little oval pumpkins were cut from a piece of watercolor paper that went all wrong for the project I had planned but worked out perfectly for this one.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive and Watercolor Paper
  • Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Painted Harvest (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Leaflet Framelits, Layered Ovals Framelits, Leaf Punch, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves Embossing Folder


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5-1/2″, fold and burnish with a bone folder.
  • The Bermuda Bay layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Ink the raised pattern on the Pinewood Planks EF with the Bermuda Bay Ink Pad, enclose the cardstock and run through the Big Shot to create the wood background.  Add to card base with SNAIL.
  • Cut two large leaves one in Whisper White and one in Bermuda Bay.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black on the White one and attach over the Bermuda Bay leaf with SNAIL so that the Bermuda Bay leaf shows on one side.  Attach to top of card front with multipurpose glue.  The smaller leaf was cut from a scrap of watercolored paper and attached with dimensionals.  Tie a Linen Thread bow around the stem of this leaf.
  • Cut three ovals from Pumpkin Pie CS or watercolor paper in a larger size than three more smaller ovals.  Emboss with Layered Leaves EF.  Punch the Leaves with Leaf Punch (Painted Harvest Bundle) from scrap of Old Olive.  Trim to leave one leaf and stem.
  • To make the pumpkins add SNAIL to top right of one oval, place second oval slightly slanted from top toward center over SNAIL.  Add third oval on top with dimensionals.  Add stem/leaf with glue dot.  Add both pumpkins to lower left corner of card front.
  • Inside the Bermuda Bay layer is 4-3/8″ x 3-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″.  Emboss with Pinewood Planks EF and Bermuda Bay Ink just at the bottom.  Add to card with SNAIL.

Hope your “hump day” has been awesome…I finished with my FaceTime rehearsals today for OnStage.  Feeling pretty confident about my presentation and hope everyone enjoys the samples I’ve created with this brand new stamp set for Spring!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

well…that sounds fine with me.

Stay inky…be HaPpY!
