An Oldie But Goodie
Hi Everyone, Well I dug out one of my retired Stampin Up Stamp sets. I just love this stamp and have probably over used it through out the years. The set is titled Heartfelt Thanks. It was my "go to" stamp set for several years. People that receive cards from me on a regular basis are probably so sick of seeing this stamp, but I never get sick of it. I hate to see it just sitting in the draw being ignored, so every now and then I pull it out. Today was the day for it to be used again. I colored the image using SU markers: Almost Amethyst, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, So Saffron and YoYo Yellow. I huffed and stamped. I cut it out using a Scalloped Oval Nesti and backed it up with an Oval Nesti. The designer paper was from an old pack at papers that I got at JoAnn's years ago. The border punch is also from Stampin Up. I used a diamond embossing folder on the card base and added little gems in the cross sections of the diamonds and around the scallops for some added bling. Thank you for spending a few minutes of your time here today. I appreciate it.
