I hope everyone had a great Easter. Rob and I got to spend it with one family of grands. You know anytime I can spend some time with them, is the best time ever. My achilles tendon is slowly starting to heal. I still can not walk on it but when I went to physical therapy on Monday they said they are going to start letting me put as much pressure as I can on it next week. Thank you for all the cards and good wishes. Each one was truly appreciated.
I did manage to get some time in to stamp last week. My stamp room is upstairs so it has been hard to get myself up there. Rob has been a blessing and so patient with me. He has learned to do a lot of things around the house. He is getting so good at some things I am thinking about letting him do them forever.
I used the stamp set called Artistically Inked to make this card. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Artistic Dies. I am happy to say that both of these products are being carried over into the next catalog. This card was fairly easy to make and did not take a lot of time at all. First I stamped the flowers and the center of the larger flower in Misty Moonlight and Daffodil Delight ink. By the way, Misty Moonlight is one of the InColors that will be retiring on May 3rd. After stamping the flowers, I cut them out using the dies. Next I stamped the background on a piece of Basic White cardstock multiple times just using one stamp. I adhered the flowers to the background. Then I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder. Lastly I added a few of some retired InColor enamel dots.
Although this stamp set and coordinating dies will be available in the new catalog, you will be be able to get the bundle savings so if you like this set, you should order it by May 2nd and save 10%
The misty and yellow combo is just stunning (I will miss that blue). Wow, next week is foot pressure time – EXCELLENT. I don’t have this bundle, but esp like that background stamp.
This is gorgeous, Susan! I love the colors you used (my high school colors and Mike’s rival!!), and that background is awesome. I’m so glad your healing is going well! Good luck next week. Soon you’ll be running all over the place again, keeping up with the grands.
