Just Believe at sunset

I love the Just Believe Stamp set, it can atmospheric and emotional cards - if thats possible ! lol By masking the sun with a post it note, then sponging the rest of the area creates the atmosphere. I then did light sponging over the white area so it all blends together perfectly. Last thing is to stamp the flower image in black.SU recipe :

Cardstock - Bravo burgundy, shimmer white, black
Ink - Barely banana, crumb cake, Bravo burgundy, black

I came across a really interesting technique recently and was excited to give it a try - double embossing. I had this card planned in my head for a few days - no chance to even get into my craft room as its spring break and the kidlets are off school. I LOVE the result.


SU recipe :
Stamps : Great friends
Cardstock : Very vanilla, Poppy parade, certain celery, basic black.
Accessories : Scallop trim border punch, two-step bird punch, basic black ink
Technique: Double embossing, punching, stamping

Ridiculous question !

My Husband asked me the most ridiculous question - "When is enough craft supplies enough?". My response, When you have it all of course ! lol Unfortunately its a moving target though because there is always something new to buy.
