Hi! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
Today I have a fun but simple card to share wtith you! You see, I was on the phone talking with Tosh the other day. Nothing out of the ordinary...as we talk quite regularly! (She's the one that does most of the talking...I just listen! LOL!! Okay, okay...I'm probably the one that does 3/4 of the talking....) Anyway, I was stamping the card below while I was talking to her and I started to describe what I was doing. Well, half way through she says, "NO WAY...are you embossing the leaves (I was telling her that I was using the Happiness Found set from Verve) using clear embossing powder on the patterned paper??"! I was a bit weirded out at that point...you know, looking for the hidden camera an all! I mean, how could she know what I was doing before I even finished telling her about it? Well, it's because she JUST did the same thing! I know...how cool is that? :-) So, we decided we would both post our (clear embossed leaves on patterned paper) cards today!
Here's what I came up with:
Pretty simple really...but I just loved the color combo! I just pulled the colors from the patterned paper (the new Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg line...YUM-O!!). The verse is from Verve Stamps as well (1 Chronicles 16:34), and is embossed using Chocolate Chip craft ink and Clear Detail embossing powder. Oh, and just pretend the bow and buttons are brown and not almost black looking, okay? :-) They actually are a nice dark brown in real life...my camera just likes to think it's black. Sigh...
Ok...you HAVE to go check out what Tosh made! I can tell you right now, her's will have a ton of gorgeous details!! She's amazing!
Hope you enjoy your Saturday! Hugs, Laurie
