Hey kids! How's it going? It is a gray and rainy day where I am, but that's okay by me because I've been having a good time in my craft room. I got a card made a couple hours ago and started work on a scrapbook layout and then I Skyped with my friend Missy (HI MISSY!!!) so it's 4:30 and I'm just now getting this post written.
But guess what? I got NEW SCHTUFF as an early birthday present to meeee!
And of course the first new thing I had to break out was the Dragonfly Dreams bundle, which is an awesome stamp set with dragonflies and bees and sentiments and other stuff, plus a set of coordinating Framelits and I just wanna hug 'em and squeeze 'em and call 'em George. I considered tying some Emerald Envy ribbon between the patterned paper and the white bokeh layer, do you think it needs that extra touch? And oh yeah, the dragonfly was painted with clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle.
So for today I started with the Global Design Project sketch:
And I paired that with the Paper Players color challenge:
I chose Emerald Envy for my third color and somehow (I'm not at all sure how I did this) I ended up with two green thumbs plus several other green fingers. I mean, I'm not really a tidy stamper, but in general I don't get *that* much ink on myself. Anyway, I stamped the sentiment on the black card base with Whisper White ink and it just wasn't oomphy enough, so I heat embossed it with white EP which means I can enter the embossing challenge over at SUO Challenges too!
Okay, I wanna get my scrapbook layout done today so I'm going to head on back downstairs to the craft cave. Cheers, y'all!
