A Few New Favorites

Another busy, but fun weekend! I love summertime in Michigan! We did have a few rainy days this past week, so I took that time to play with some of my favorite new things, and created this card.

If I could have only picked one new stamp set from the new IB&C it would be Just Believe. I love the elegant looking floral silhouettes. I paired it up here with some of my favorite new patterned paper - Elegant Soiree and my favorite new embellishment - the gorgeous Antique Brads. I also used a bit of the Victoria Crochet Trim.

On the main image I created a shadow by stamping the image twice. The first time in Baja Breeze, the second time in VersaMark. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to offset it just a bit from the first image to create the shadow. Then I embossed it with White Embossing Powder. The Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft) base was embossed using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate and the Big Shot. Then I decided to be brave and spritz it with some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. I wasn't brave enough to try it on my main image tho, and I think that was a good move...that stuff is a little hard to control.

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today...enjoy your day!

This is such a lovely card. Is the stamp still available? I would love to be able to purchase one if it is.

Hi Beverly, Just Believe retired with the last catalog. I've been using the stamp set Serene Silhouettes to create cards similar to this one. It has a beautiful wildflower image that is kind of like this one, plus a couple tree & branch images that make nice masculine cards.
