A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!
A quick post, peeps. Today is Mister's Burpday and we've got plans to hit a concert, maybe do a little twerking, and then have dinner at the San Francisco Ritz Carlton. I'm sure I don't see what's so funny, nor how you know I'm lying.
Today I made a card for the current challenge at Case Study where the muse inspiration comes from the uber-talented Kathy Racoosin!
Here is my card:
A while back my bloggie friend and amazing card artist Kim M. of Art Keeps Me Sane used a poinsettia image on a beautiful card. When I commented on how much I loved it, she generously stamped off several images and sent them to me. Another example of this kind and caring stamping community we blog in! Thank you, Kim, my poinsettia pal!
I used one of the images which Kim had white-embossed on vellum. I colored it in summery nontraditional pinks, cut it out, and popped it on my card. I'm sorry the coloring looks blotchy. It's much less so IRL. (We had a very unusual cloudy and rainy day here for the last day of summer.) The center of the poinsettia is colored with a sparkly Wink of Stella clear pen, today's NBUS.
I'm thinking that if I made a pen and it had two black rings in the center and the instructions say to remove "the" black ring in the center before using, well, that's not very helpful, is it? It might be a better idea to leave one of the black bits uncolored, just clear plastic, so there is only the one black ring in the center. Is what I'm thinking. Thank you. (Also, I'm thinking it's poseeblay that I am the only one confused enough to be confused by it.)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! No, seriously, enjoy. LITS*
